Francis Pelletier Wins in Dubuque
Daniel Benham Finishes 2nd & 3rd in Pro Class
St. Cloud, MN (2/3/2019) – Warnert Racing headed east to Dubuque, Iowa this past weekend for a brand new location for the ISOC Snocross Racing Series at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds. Like clockwork, the team landed on the podium both nights in the Pro and Pro Lite classes snagging multiple podium finishes and a win!
The Dubuque County Fairgrounds surprised everyone when they designed a huge challenging track–arguably one if not the longest tracks now on the circuit. Along with the large track, there is also amphitheater seating making it a great place to watch the racing action go down all weekend.
Fresh off a win in historic Deadwood, SD less than a week ago, Francis “Frank” Pellitier captured yet another win in the Pro Lite Class on Saturday Night.
“It was a great weekend for me here in Dubuque, I feel so good on the sled. We have put in so much work and it keeps getting better and better with my Makita Tools Rockstar Energy NSK GMC backed Ski-doo!” explained #220 Francis Pelletier.
Fellow Warnert Racing team member Daniel Benham carried over his momentum from his win in Deadwood to stand on the box once again on both Friday and Saturday. Looking cool and calm in practice, Benham put the hammer down in his heats and during the finals to capture third on Friday and second on Saturday.
“We were consistent all weekend with a few heat race wins and then landing on the podium both days. We found consistency and speed and I’m feeling great on the sled. Enzo KYB had my shocks dialed and Speedwerx’ Steve (Houle) did an excellent job with the clutching as always and I could charge hard everywhere!” said #221 Dan Benham
Snocross will take a couple of weekends off and then will head east to New York. Stop number six will be held at Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca, NY. If you haven’t already, don’t forget to follow us on social media for an exclusive behind the scenes content between races!
