The International 500 Snowmobile Race, called “the world’s longest, fastest, toughest, and most-exciting oval race event,” that lasted over 9 hours yesterday had one team from this side of the border who did pretty well.

“We started 25th with Ryan driving and he quickly made it up the field. Unfortunately we blew a belt early on and then had a little mishap putting us behind more. All 3 of these guys gave it their all and got us from dead last to 9th place,” one of the team posted on their Facebook page.

The team was made up of Ryan McCaig, Aaron Mayer and Trent Johnson for the Furkey Racing #54 sled.

The team completed 482 laps when the race was finished in 9 hours, 5 minutes and just over 40 seconds of racing.

Joey Burch led all the racers with the #19 sled from Tommie Bauer Racing to a .0001-second victory over Ross Erdman, who was racing the #29 for D.L. Racing.
