Jake Yurk Goes To Arctic Cat


The field of competitors for the 2017 Pro Lite Championship continues to stack up with Grand Blanc, Michigan’s Jakob Yurk becoming the latest Sport rider to graduate to the Pro ranks. Perhaps even more surprising is the fact that Yurk has also changed colors for the upcoming season, as we learned he has recently been testing with Arctic Cat in Island Park, Idaho.

Yurk has been a top contender in the national Sport class finishing runner-up the past two seasons and was, in fact, leading the championship midway through the 2016 campaign when he suffered a serious internal injury at the New York round of the AMSOIL Championship Snocross tour. Yurk was expected to miss the remainder of the season but made a remarkable return to the series just a few weeks later and continued to put up podium numbers.

Full details about Yurk’s new team are forthcoming.
