Arctic Cat Announces Production Changes
Before 2008 Arctic Cats hit the assembly line, they underwent some final tweaks.
The F-Series machines received these updates:
Fastrax Buys Union Bay
Washington-based Union Bay Racing, known for its high-performance drag engines, is under new ownership as of Aug. 1.
Mark Wolfe, who’s owned the shop for the past few years, decided to get back into car racing and is now competing in the NHRA circuit. Union Bay was absorbed into Fastrax Motorsports, based in Puyallup, Wash., but it won’t go away, said Curtis Bleile, manager and soon-to-be-owner of Fastrax. “We’re still producing engines and supplying parts,” he said.
Fastrax, which opened shop last year, specializes in custom chassis and suspension systems, including a tube chassis. “So far, I’m really happy with the purchase,”?Bleile said. “The engines just complement the other work we do.”
Lance Kozumplik of Grantsburg, Wis., has purchased Mike Olde’s Dynamic Skis, a company based in British Columbia that produces aftermarket, deep-snow skis.
The skis are now under the name Mods Skis, and are a tri-keel design weighing 7.5 pounds each. Kozumplik says he made some initial changes to the skis before bringing them back to market. Each ski is totally rebuildable, and replacement skins, spine brackets and ski loops are sold separately. The skis are $390 per pair with runners or $435 per pair with carbides. psb
