ARCTIC CAT THUNDERCAT WINS BAJA 500

Arctic Cat Thundercat Continues SCORE Win Streak


Fines Double Racing Wins Baja 500 

Thief River Falls, MN (6/8/09) – Unmatched performance. This is the best way to describe the domination of the Arctic Cat Thundercat in the 2009 SCORE International desert race series. After winning the 41st annual Baja 500, Fines Double Racing retains a perfect two-for-two win record in Class 26. 

Racers Reid Rutherford, Benn Vernadakis and Tony Valerio finished with a time of 13 hours and 57 minutes while averaging 31mph in the grueling terrain. 

“The power of the Thundercat’s 1000H2 motor is amazing. It says something when you can go out with a 600lb Sport Utility and beat some of the true sport ATVs and dirtbikes half its size. Arctic Cat’s are known to take abuse, and the obstacles this race throws at them is proof it’s the most durable ATV,” said Rutherford. 

Team Arctic Race Coordinator Ted Bettin said, “We are extremely proud of the Fines Double team. This victory shows how strong their team is, and how strong the Thundercat is. A lot of what we learn from winning these races is applied to our new models. It just so happens we released the 2010 Thundercat today; perfect timing!”
