Out of Retirement: Mont Du Lac 2014

April 1st, 2014

What an amazing weekend of racing in Mont Dul Lac. Matt had been out of the racing scene for 4 years and was able to dust the cobwebs off in a matter of a few runs to take home podium finishes in the two classes he entered. The track at Mont Dul Lac really let… Read more »

MASTERS Racing has brought hillcross back to the midwest at Mont Dul Lac this weekend. Matt will be piloting his trusty black and white 800 factory mod Ski-Doo in at least one Pro class on Sunday. A special thanks to Kimberly for driving the trailer out to Mont Dul Lac to secure a prime parking… Read more »

The 2010 Banquet

May 3rd, 2010

The banquet was a blast. I ended up with a huge stack of trophies and the #1 Pro plate. A special thanks to all of my sponsors and also to MSRA for all their hard work this year starting a new circuit. We’ll be on Lucas Oil on the Edge on May 15th at 3:30… Read more »

Mount Christie 2010

March 29th, 2010

It was a tough weekend for me at Mount Christie. After my hospitalization, I’m done racing for the year. I was forced to just take starts in a few of my classes to make sure that I sealed up my points championships. It’s pretty tough watching your friends and competitors racing while sitting on a… Read more »

After the Crash

March 24th, 2010

I’m back at home now. I’ve actually been out of the hospital and back at home since Monday night. I’m feeling pretty well too. I’ve still got some pain around where I had the chest tube, and that will take a while to heal up and be back to normal. Unfortunately it means that I’m… Read more »

Ski-Gull 2010: The Epic Crash

March 22nd, 2010

3Ski-Gull turned out to be not the greatest weekend for me. I raced well and made all of my finals- taking home two seconds, four thirds, and one fourth by the end of the day. The trouble I had with the weekend was actually with my first race of qualifying for the weekend. It had… Read more »

Quadna Mountain Park 2010

March 16th, 2010

Quadna was another good weekend for me. It wasn’t quite the domination that I had the first weekend, but all in all it was a good weekend. The competition was tougher this weekend with the Bauerly Racing trailer showing up and Chad and Kurt both racing in the Pro ranks. It also marked the return… Read more »

Mount Itasca 2010

March 8th, 2010

The first race of the year went awesome! I ended up winning 20 of the 22 races I was in. The sleds were both running great, and I had a nice line figured out on the track. MSRA and Mt. Itasca put on a great show. The racing went really smoothly; you would never guess… Read more »

2010 Practice

March 1st, 2010

Practice at Planet X this weekend went well. It’s the first time I’ve really been out on the sleds for the year and they seemed to be running great. Now it’s time to get the new graphics on in time for the first race. A special thanks to Fastline Graphix in Duluth, MN for getting… Read more »

2010 Pre-Race Update

February 21st, 2010

Race season is almost here! I’m going to be running both MSRA and WSA Pro-Ice hillcross this year. MSRA is new circuit this year and has the potential to become the premier hillcross circuit in the country. It’s run by racers/former racers and they’re doing everything they can think of to promote the sport. We’ll… Read more »

Mont Du Lac 2009

March 29th, 2009

It was the first time I’ve had the chance to race at Mont Du Lac in Superior, WI. The weekend ended up alright, with me making all of my finals and taking home two podiums. Qualifying on Saturday was not my strongest showing. If I could keep the sled pointed straight up the hill, I… Read more »

Spring Break Repairs

March 17th, 2009

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Good thing I’m on spring break now, because I found out that my crash at Park-X bent the “flying nun” on my 800. It’s a huge structural piece that holds the front suspension together. I ordered the parts to fix it now, and luckily I’ve actually got some time to get… Read more »

Park X 2009

March 9th, 2009

Park-X was one of the worst weekends I’ve had in quite a while. There was a corner in the track, and it’s been quite a while since I’ve tried to navigate a corner with 5 other racers at a time. It was a double header weekend with Saturday and Sunday being completely separate races. Saturday… Read more »

Let’s get ready to race!

February 2nd, 2009

Race season is almost here! There’s been snow on the ground in Minnesota since November, and now it’s finally almost time for me to start racing. I’ll be running the WSA Pro-Ice Hillcross circuit again this year in the Pro classes. I’ve cut back to two sleds this year, since last year there was no… Read more »

2009 Season

September 10th, 2008

It’s been quite a while since my last update, but that’s mainly because not a whole lot has happened for me racing so far. I’m still up in the air for what brand of sleds I’ll be riding next year. I’ve still got my Ski-Doo 600 and 800 mods from last year that I can… Read more »

Spirit Mountain Photos

July 6th, 2008

So I’ve really been slacking on getting the Spirit Mountain photos up, but I finally got some of them up now. There should still be more photos coming from Giant’s Ridge and Spirit Mountain once they finish getting edited. Not much else has changed for my plans on racing. I’ll be racing next year for… Read more »

Giant’s Ridge Photos

May 13th, 2008

Some of the pictures from Giant’s Ridge are finally up. The ones right now are from Allen at http://www.aroundtherange.com/. He’s got pictures of all of the racers on his site, so check it out if you were racing there. My mom is still having computer troubles, so there will be more photos from the last… Read more »

2008 Wrap Up

April 29th, 2008

Another season is officially over now with the banquet being last weekend. I ended up with plaques in every class, which I think is actually a first for me. If I wouldn’t have had so much trouble with my 800 at Park X, I would have ended up second in every class. I’ve got a… Read more »

Spirit Mountain 2008

April 14th, 2008

Spirit Mountain marks the last snowmobile race of the season, and another season has gone by without any major problems. Results wise, it was actually the worst race of the season for me, but the competition was very tough. There were over 20 Pro’s there, and with the track conditions only 6 were going to… Read more »

Giant’s Ridge 2008

April 7th, 2008

Hometown races are a lot of fun, but also very stressful. Giant’s Ridge is as close as I ever get to home, and while it’s always a good time, I also put a lot of pressure on myself to do well. I ended up being at the track on Friday from about 10-8:30 testing set-ups… Read more »

Cascade 2008

March 31st, 2008

Cascade Mountain was another successful race. My 600 sled was running great as always, and even lead me into the finals as the top qualifier in both Pro 600 and 700. In both those finals, I nailed the holeshot and got out to an early lead, but both times got kicked sideways about 2/3′s of… Read more »

Brainerd 2008

March 24th, 2008

My hard work over spring break seemed to pay off. The race was in Brainerd, MN and I finally got my 800 to run competitively. It took me up until midnight the night before the races, but it is running MUCH better and my results show that. I still had some bad luck with starts,… Read more »

Park-X 2008

March 11th, 2008

Park-X is usually never one of my good races, and the trend continues. I had everything from bad starts, tangles with other drivers, and bad luck in the draws for line choice in qualifying. I still ended up 2nd in Pro 600 and Jackson, along with 4th in Pro 700, but the 800+ classes weren’t… Read more »

2008′s first weekend

March 4th, 2008

The first weekend of hillcross went great. It was actually the first two races combined into one weekend with Saturday and Sunday being completely different races. I ended up winning four class, second in three, third in two, and top five in the rest. I had really good luck on the new Rev XP chassis…. Read more »

The New Site is Up!

February 23rd, 2008

Not all of the pages are complete, but it is officially lfcracing.com now. The first hillcross race that was scheduled for this weekend in Iowa was canceled, so I’ve got a little extra time to work on the site and catch up with life. Medical school has really cut into my racing time, but I… Read more »
