Keith Curtis celebrated his birthday this past weekend by dominating the RMSHA hillclimb in Beaver Mountain, Utah. The Polaris racer won five Pro classes and two King of the Hill crowns.
Pro racers can enter five classes at each RMSHA event, and Curtis won his five classes: 600, 800 and 1000 Stock, 800 Mod and Open Mod. He capped off the event by winning both the Stock and Mod King of the Hill titles. In the season’s first six RMSHA events, Curtis has won 23 class titles, 11 King of the Hill crowns and the King of Kings title at the Jackson Hole World Championship.
The entire Polaris team dominated on AXYS RMK sleds, earning 23 of 36 available Pro podium spots. Tanner Meyers won 600 Improved Stock, and Justin Thomas won 1000 Improved Stock for one of his three podium finishes. Luke Rainey won 800 Improved Stock along and earned a podium finish in all four Pro Stock classes.
In Semi-Pro, Polaris racer Storm Johnson won Stock and Improved Stock and was second in Mod, which was won by Sam Peterson, who went on to win Semi-Pro King of the Hill.
Shelley Heap continued her season-long dominance in the Women’s classes, winning all four races along with the Women’s Queen of the Hill crown for the fifth time in six events this season.
