Polaris Racers Scott Faeo & Eric Quam Win Iron Dog Cross-Country Race Across Alaska On Pair of 600 Switchback® Models Built on Innovative AXYS® Platform
Winners Extend Lead Throughout Second Half of Race, Win by Over 45 Minutes!

MEDINA, Minn. (March 2, 2015) – In the ultimate demonstration of Polaris Terrain Domination®, Polaris cross country snowmobile racers Scott Faeo and Eric Quam won the Iron Dog race across Alaska on Saturday, Feb. 28, on a pair of 2015 600 Switchback PRO-S models built on the innovative AXYS® platform.

Faeo and Quam led for more than half of the 2,031-mile race on some of the most varied snow conditions in race history. Racers encountered long stretches of bare ground early in the race, and rode through water-covered streets when they arrived at the race's midway point in Nome. They then raced out of Nome as a snowstorm swept in off the coast.

Faeo and Quam started the final day's run from Tanana to Fairbanks with a lead of 32 minutes, 31 seconds over the second-place team. They increased that lead en route to the finish line in downtown Fairbanks and won by a margin of 45:55 over the runners-up.

Polaris teams dominated the race as they finished first and third, earned six top-10 finishing positions, and took 10 of the top 16 spots. Racers on Polaris sleds have won two straight Iron Dog races and five of the past seven.
