St. Cloud, Minnesota February 15, 2011 – Two of the most powerful snowmobile racing teams are joining forces to take on three of the toughest snowmobile races. Warnert Racing, one of the most experienced snocross racing teams in the lower forty eight, and Team CC, one of the most experienced cross country racing teams in Alaska, are announcing their partnership for three cross country races in February, March and April this season.
The joint team begins their effort at the world renowned Iron Dog event starting this Sunday February 20th in Big Lake, Alaska (near Wasilla) and concluding 2000 miles later in Fairbanks. Their second race is the United States Cross Country (USCC) event in Warroad, MN March 13th and the final race in 2011 will be the Arctic Man Classic April 6th-10th.
