    AmSnow's Jacob Dahle in Mid-Season Form

     With 130 wins and three national championships to his name, you wouldn’t consider Jacob Dahle a rookie. But that’s exactly what he is in the world of crosscountry snowmobile racing. 

    You see, Dahle has more than 15 years of race experience under his belt, but they’ve all been of the 4-wheeled variety. That is, until this winter when Dahle traded those four wheels in for a lugged track and skis. 

    Racing in the COR PowerSports crosscountry race series, Dahle is one of the older rookies you’ll find at the track at age 26. But his youthful spirit and love of riding sleds has him right in the thick of the season points battle. He’s currently sitting in third at just past the halfway point of the season in both the Sport Stock and Sport Improved Stock classes. 

     “It's crazy! I'm getting beat by kids and girls,” said Dahle, “Some of these racers have no fear. I seem to see dollar signs and the consequences of getting hurt!” 

    Making the move to racing sleds has been two-fold for Dahle, one part fun adventure, one part steep learning curve. 

    “I've had some bad results, and some results I have been surprised with,” said Dahle. “I'm still racing with the attitude to have fun,” he added. 

    Like any racer, Jacob is picking up on the little things in sled set-up and learning what works best in varying conditions. Most importantly he’s continuing to have fun and improve each and every race, gaining valuable confidence as the season enters its home stretch. 

     “Heck, even I'm starting to bang skis with other racers,” Dahle said. 

    You can catch Jacob Dahle and the rest of the COR PowerSports race series Jan. 31, 2015 at Castle Rock Lake in central Wisconsin. They are fun events for all ages and the racing action is extremely hot! 

    “I'm pretty excited for this weekend’s race at Castle Rock Lake. It's another ice race, and I am pretty happy with how my sled has been handling” he said. “I just need to get better at pounding through the whoops and leaning a little more in the corners.”
