Team Arctic turned to the asphalt track at the Martin, Mich. Speedway for a run at the record books.
Piloting a stock 2010 Arctic Cat Z1 Turbo, Team Howards’s Jeff Jaquish of Racine, Wis. ran the ¼ mile in 9.006 seconds, good for 142 mph. That shatters the previous record set by Glen Hall on his 2009 Arctic Cat Z1 Turbo when he recorded 137.99 mph and a 9.395 time.
“We were hoping for the first eight-second pass, but this record really gets me excited for the speed of these stock Z1 Turbos,” says team owner Billy Howard. “Just like Glen Hall’s Z1 Turbo last year, ours had the stock skid, stock motor and stock turbo. We can both honestly say that Arctic Cat does make the World’s Fastest Snowmobiles!”
