Elk River, Minnesota (December 10, 2013) – Coming of an incredible weekend in Duluth, where Andrew Carlson dominated the Pro Lite class; Carlson continued his podium performance with two more trips to the box in Bessemer, Michigan during the Northern Clearing National Snocross.
Conditions changed dramatically for racers compared to the relatively warm and snow-dust free environment they experienced in Duluth. Facing numbing temperatures, sub-zero wind-chills, and stinging snow dust that made visibility nearly impossible; the Carlson Motorsports crew came prepared with meticulously prepped Polaris race sleds, and equally prepared racers in their high performance FXR Racing gear.
Considered one of the more challenging tracks on the International Series of Champions (ISOC), national tour, the Bessemer track features a two up-hill runs, and a nasty downhill section dubbed the “dirty dozen” for its seemingly unrelenting series of huge jumps and deep crater like holes.
For Carlson and his Pro Lite…
