Southfield, Michigan, January 24, 2013. Ross Martin and his Champion(®) spark
plug-powered Judnick Motorsports Polaris sled swept Pro Open class competition
in last weekend's prestigious Amsoil Eagle River World Championship snocross
event in Eagle River, Wis. Martin (Bib 837) uses "Performance Driven(TM)"
Champion(®) Copper Plus(®) spark plugs, which are engineered to provide maximum
power, sure starts and ultra-fast throttle response.
Martin won the Friday Night Thunder round by 1.233-second while posting a top
speed of 33.692 miles per hour on the .27-mile track. The Champion-Powered
Polaris sled extended its margin of victory to nearly three seconds in Sunday's
Eagle River Pro Open.
"Ross was simply dominant in both rounds and in two very different sets racing
conditions," said Champion Product Manager Michael Kollenberg. "We're pleased
that the Polaris team relies exclusively on
Champion spark plugs to outperform
the competition in a particularly challenging form of competition."
