     A cold front blew in and sent the third event on the USXC schedule, the Willmar Area Lakes 100, into a deep-freeze on Saturday, January 12.

    The USXC crew laid out roughly a 10-mile course on the frozen surface of Foot Lake just outside downtown Willmar, racers set up shop at the Kandiyohi County fairgrounds.

    Brian Dick claimed the, 100-mile race, Pro 600 win with a time of 1:34:40.222, seven seconds faster than second place finisher Herfindahl and over a minute faster than the third place Arctic Cat of Wes Selby. Just behind Selby was Simons and rounding out the Top 5 was the Arctic Cat of Chad Lian.
    The 16-year-old rookie Pro, Zach Herfindahl, laid down the fastest time in the 5-lap, 50-mile Pro Open race (47:37.106) besting his teammate Ryan Simons (47:42.328) by over five seconds. Brian Dick, another one of Herfindahl’s teammates, finished in third with a time of 47:44.148.

    Arctic Cat rider Cole Nymann won the Polaris Semi-Pro 600 class finishing the 5-lap, 50-mile race with a time of 49:33.223, nearly 38-second faster than second place Polaris rider Travis Faust and 46-seconds faster than the third place Polaris of Spencer Kadlec.
    Faust won the AMSOIL Semi-Pro Improved race logging a five-lap time of 49:22.355 besting the Ski-Doo of Cale Anseeuw and the Polaris of Alex Hetteen by just over 30-seconds.
    “The Willmar Area Lakes 100 was a special event for me since it is so close to my home town and the headquarters of USXC, Spicer, Minn.,” said USXC owner Brian Nelson. “The city was a gracious host and being able to hold a race so close to the center of town made for a great event.”
