Scheuring Speed Sports Makita Captures Another Podium Finish

Robbie Malinoski continued to be one of the hottest riders on the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series trail with a third place podium finish Saturday night in Farmington, New York. The event took place during a warm upstate New York evening with heavy snow and a capacity crowd of over 15,000, creating the most electrifying atmosphere of the season.

Malinoski was the top qualifier with 1-1 finishes in preliminary rounds. At the start of the main event, the number 4 AMSOIL/Air Force/Rockstar Ski-Doo launched into a top five position and Malinoski was able to move forward during the 20 minute main event, securing the third position in the closing laps. The result moved Robbie into fourth overall in the Pro Open standings, significantly closing the gap on the class leaders.
Malinoski was also one of the top qualifiers in the Pro Super Stock class on Friday and was running in fourth position before a late race tangle dropped him back in the order. 

Semi-Pro racer Darrin Mees was fast throughout the weekend as well, earning several wins in qualifying and racing to a fourth during Friday night’s class final. Willie Elam picked up his first win as a professional during the qualifying rounds and had a solid seventh in Friday’s Pro Super Stock final.

In addition to on-track activities, the team was also involved with several promotions during the week. Among these were a pre-race fan party in conjunction with sponsor Traxxas, and a live TV news feed from the track.

Up next is Round 5 from the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan.
