OTSFF Motorsports will manage Team Rockstar Energy Polaris Racing's snocross program for the 2011-2012 CSRA Pro Open Snowcross Championship series, according to Andre Laurin, president of OTSFF Motorsports.
The points chase kicks off on the first weekend of December at Calabogie Ski Resort outside of Ottawa.
Team Rockstar Energy Polaris Racing recorded a 2010-2011 championship-winning season with Iain Hayden clinching the Pro Open title. His teammate, Lee Butler, finished with a third place ranking, despite dealing with injuries and missing one round.
Like Hayden, Butler has signed for another year with Team Rockstar Energy Polaris Racing in the Open class and will be looking to reclaim the championship that he lost to his teammate last season.
"I'm definitely hoping to rebound this winter after an up and down season last year," Butler said.
Hayden, who hammered down his fourth CSRA National title last season, is tied for the most championships won. His aim will be to make it title number five this season.
"I'm looking forward to getting out there to defend my title aboard the new Polaris IQ 600," Hayden said.
Joining the team this year will be Bracebridge, Ontario's JB Dennis. The young up-and-comer, who has won a number of amateur championships, will campaign the Pro Lite class, formerly known as Semi-Pro. Last season, Dennis claimed a third place ranking in both the Semi-Pro Stock and Open Championship.
"I'm looking forward to going for my first pro championship," Dennis said.
The team is currently gearing up for the start of the season, which will include seven national rounds, four regional rounds, and some additional races in the United States. The team will be attending the ATV & Powersports Show in full force for a meet and greet at the International Centre in Toronto, October 14-16.
"Even though we've been racing snowmobiles for more than a decade there is always that pre-season excitement, getting everything in place. It's like a fever that gradually builds up. At the end of the season you're glad it's over with, but once summer is gone you can't wait to get back into action on the snow," Laurin said.
In addition to Hayden and Butler, suspension guru Adam Robinson returns to the team as race director/team manager.
