Mike Elhard: “Yes I will doing the Series & what is exciting about this is Polaris Canada & Cyleworks is entering the vehicle. They made me their driver for 2016, I am going to be competing everywhere I can in the thing.”

Velocity: “Is it just Ice Racing or are you doing anything else?’

Mike Elhard: “We will doing the entire Rally Cross events with it, 2 Ice Racing Events & a couple demos with the Sports Car Club.

Velocity: “Do you have any other sponsors?”

Mike Elhard: “Yes we are still doing stuff with JetSet Parking. We are doing a promotion with JetSet Parking & the Airport, we are putting a sling shot at the airport.

Velocity: “So you have done a lot of Chumpcar racing last year & looking at doing it this year?”

Mike Elhard: “We are doing some pretty major Chumpcar Races this year, we are planning on doing Road America, Kota in Texas, Daytona & more than anything is the 39 Hour is in Vegas on New Years Eve.”

Velocity: “You mentioned you just won in your class recently where was this?”

Mike Elhard: “We won the EC class at Laguna Seca.”

Velocity: “How was that corkscrew at Laguna Seca?”

Mike Elhard: “It’s terrifying, absolute terrifying, if you get it right it is magic, if you get it wrong you go airborne. We ended smashing our car pretty good, we ended up airborne there in the last session, with 45 minutes to go in the race. We went off course and hit some sand bags & gravel traps. We damaged the car pretty bad, Shawn actually made a piece of cork out of a broom handle & cork our radiator with it. The repair job allowed us to finish the race & win our division.
