Lake Nebagamon, Wisc. – January 18, 2016 – Fresh off his first win in the Pro Lite division, Jake Angove took another step in his career as a professional snowmobile racer competing in the Pro Open class at the 53rd running of the Eagle River World Championship Derby.
Although significantly under-powered on his stock Polaris race sled, Angove impressed the crowd of over 10,000, who battled sub-zero temps, when he raced to top five finishes in both of his Friday night qualifiers.
On Saturday, Angove found the competition a bit more formidable in the main event where he finished seventh overall. The team was pleasantly surprised by Angove’s efforts, and while his focus will remain on winning a Pro Lite title in the AMSOIL Championship Snocross series, the experience at Eagle River will only improve his confidence and momentum when the ACS returns to action on another tight course this weekend in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
