Ingles Riders Sweep Top Classes at ECS Mass. Debut
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. (Feb. 24, 2014) - While the state of Massachusetts may not be the part of New England most folks associate with snowmobile racing, it does receive ample snowfall in places and can indeed be a hotspot for snocross competition.
East Coast Snocross (ECS) made its long-awaited debut in Berkshire County last weekend, and the Ingles Performance/Ski-doo team came away with numerous victories. Leading the hit parade was former series champion Mathieu Morin, who swept both Pro Open finals. Morin led every lap in both races in his most dominant effort to date.
"Going to North Adams was very exciting because I knew I had a brand new Ingles-built sled waiting for me," Morin said. "I started the weekend with a lot of trust in my machine, and that's a big thing. I nailed almost every holeshot, thanks to excellent tuning by my mechanic, Sebastien Fortier. I enjoyed a perfect weekend, because everybody on the team helped out. I want to thank Robin and Mike Ingles for their support. It is a pleasure to win races for them and Ski-doo."
Morin, Patenaude Post Clean Sweeps at The Range
North Adams, MA – Former Pro champion Mathieu Morin and Vermont veteran Leo Patenaude each swept the finals in their respective divisions over the weekend, as East Coast Snocross completed Round 8 of its 10-race 2014 schedule at The Range hosted by MVP Promotions.
Morin, of Val-d'Or, Quebec, rode his Ingles Performance Ski-doo to victory in Saturday and Sunday's grueling 14-lap Pro Open finals. Patenaude, of Hartland, dominated Pro Lite action both days and found redemption for the incident in Fonda that took him out of contention of the 2014 title.
