Warnert Racing’s Francis Pelletier Extends Points Lead in Deadwood

Francis Pelletier Now Leads Pro-Lite Class by 31 points

St. Cloud, MN (1/27/2018) – It looked as if mother nature had it in store for racing on Saturday, with snowfall and wind gusts up to 40 mph in the forecast, it was going to be a tough one. However, the weather broke around noon and it was near perfect conditions for the second day of racing in Deadwood, SD!

Francis Pelletier Earned 3rd Place on Saturday

After landing on the podium on Friday night, Francis Pelletier carried his momentum into the Pro Lite heats finishing 1-4 progressing into the Pro Lite Final. Pelletier had his eyes set once again on the podium capturing the final spot on the podium – which was enough to not only hold onto the red number plate but also extended his points lead to 31 points!

“It feels great to be up on the podium once again and continue to hold onto the points lead aboard my Makita Tools Rockstar Energy Ski-Doo MXZ 600 RS!”

Unfortunately, in the Pro class Adam Renheim just missed the podium finishing in fourth. Tim Tremblay ran into some bad luck as he got stuck behind a rider who had tipped over in the first corner–ultimately sending him to towards the back of the pack right out of the gate.
