Get to know Les Pinz, Vintage Expert for American Snowmobiler. Check out the first video in a series on one of our favorite people in the industry. Enjoy!
We gave it a good run
For a group of guys that only get together once a year, our pit stops are top notch!
Mitch Russell, Matt Russell, Chris Dickson, Adam Hess, Bromely Hall.
Eric Gausen, Dillan Dohrn.
The scoring system shows it. Even our worst stop put Dillan back out ahead of where Eric was when he came in. I've spent the last few evenings going over lap times ( including yellows) and comparing our team to the top teams as they have finished in recent Soo I-500s.
We know we have the best lead driver. We know we have co drivers that focus on the sled and the track, not just the competition. We know what we have overcome and not backed down. We know we have either finished in the top five or not finished (due to circumstances beyond our control).
This year our plan was working as discussed prior to the green flag. The sled was as fast and efficient as it has ever been. And after 378 laps of record pace we were in the top five on the lead lap. AND our lead driver was fresh, rested and ready for the last 100 laps, unlike the last several top 5 finishes.
We did what we needed to do and we did it calmly, with focus, humor and as a team. Don't let one bolt failure get you down. You are a great bunch of guys and I can't wait til next year.

Rough spill on Saturday.
And that was the end of our 2019 Soo run.
So bummed about this weekend, Wes and I had such a good sled under us and felt like we could have drove it to the front. This race is a once a year deal And to make a mistake and end it early is a tough one to take but will be back next year.
Thank you to everyone that helped us leading up to this weekend, we couldn’t do it without you.
Home town proud!

We'll get em next year
Corey Davidson will not be racing this season. Corey was thrown from his machine while testing for Pine Lake. He broke his right arm just above the wrist.
Corey, his family,friends and CD3 teammates, wish you all the best. And we will be back next season with a winning attitude no doubt.
Clearly this is a disappointment but our hearts are with the our racing family. We at CD3 racing all ask that you keep the Billy Travis and Hunter Houle families in your thoughts.
