Dave Joanis - My goal for the weekend was to qualify for both Pro Open finals and I did that and got two Top 10 finishes, so I'm happy with that. Our Arctic Cat snowmobiles worked great and the team worked hard all weekend.
Marica Renheim - I won at Duluth last year and was hoping I could repeat and I did! Everything went great and I'm looking forward to putting Christian Brothers Racing at the front some more this season.
Tyler Adams - My family and the team have been working so long and hard to get this win, I'm just really happy right now. I know it's a long season but this is a great start and I hope to keep it going!
