Judnick Motorsports Ready For A Great Season
by Scott A. Sumner
Last year was a good one for Scott Judnick and his team. His driver Ross Martin won the Pro Open season points championship and the team performed well.
“ This is our fourteenth year. We started with a Suburban and tag trailer, then a Motorhome and now for the last 11 years the big trailer we have today. At the start Steve Scheuring was the only one to have the big trailer. We began with Arctic Cat for 5 years and this is our 9th year with Polaris. Polaris is our title sponsor with Dupont, Jack Links and Amsoil our associate sponsors,” said Scott Judnick. “ We had our best year ever and have won the pro open championship 3 of the last 4 years with Ross Martin. Mike Bauer of our team won the semi pro stock championship.”
“ The sport has more fan support than ever. I think the TV will be real good this year. The younger classes look pretty full but I think where we are struggling is the number of big teams is down a little bit because of the expense. Overall the sport is very strong.
ISOC has had record crowds last year. They need to be healthy. I know they lost a lot of money last year but have made some adjustments and feel they can meet budget this year. The economy and the fact they didn’t get the sponsors they had hoped for and the expenses were still there to do the series can create losses.” said Scott Judnick.Judnick Motorsport will be doing the 8 ISOC Nationals, Eagle River and the X Games. Last year they finished second in the X Games to Tucker Hibbert with their driver Ross Martin. “ Tucker is a great racer
and definitely the guy we have our eye on, but we are coming prepared and ready to race hard all year. We want the Pro Open Championship again this year, We just got back from a ten day test trip at Aurora, MN at Planet X and this is the first year Ross hasn't had surgery. He
had the broken hip and shoulder problems just before that. This is the first year he has been able to run motocross all summer so he feels better than in many years. ” said Scott Judnick. “ I just love the sport. So far we have been able to make it work financially.”
