Shakopee, MN (February 4, 2019) – Soaring Eagle Resort and Casino in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, was home base for the fifth of eight stops on the Hentges Racing team’s snocross national schedule this past weekend. Riders and fans were treated to the biggest and maybe the most technical track they have seen all season, complete with challenging step-up jumps and mogul-filled downhill sections. With sub-zero temperatures moving out of the region it all made up for a perfect two days of racing.
Kody Kamm looked primed for a clean sweep Friday night, winning both his heats on his way to the final. While the win eluded him, the podium was on the docket with Kamm taking the third step. He came back Saturday to repeat the heat performance and nearly repeat the podium performance, taking 4th place in the final. Wins are one thing, points are another. Kamm’s brilliant heat performance leapfrogged him into second place, just 29-points out of first place.
“Michigan was a great weekend for me and the team,” Kamm said. “We got max points in heats and did pretty well in the finals. Very happy coming out of the event and ready for more!”
Petter Narsa had perhaps his best night of the season Friday night. He qualified on the front row then used a blazing fast start to take the lead, which he held for most of the race. Narsa ended up in 2nd place, his best finish of the season and a match for the best finish by the team so far. A crash during heats on Saturday meant Narsa had to start from the back row, he worked his way up to mid pack before a mechanical issue ended his weekend.
“Friday was awesome,” said Narsa. “We didn’t have the best heat races, but we got on the front row. The sled was really fast off the line and I got the holeshot and took the lead. I felt really good on the sled. I’ll be looking for a win at the next event!”
