Rider Profile – Timmy Kallock

The last 20 years of Timmy Kallock’s life have been centered around snowmobiles. He began racing at the age of three, and he continues to do so just a few days shy of 23rd birthday.  In 1997, Timmy began racing the KC Pro West series where he won multiple championships over the years. After his Kitty Cat career, Kallock turned to ice oval racing in the WSA and USSA series. During his ice racing days, Timmy brought home more championships, including one at the famous Eagle River World Championship Snowmobile Derby.

In 2009 Timmy switched to Cross Country racing, where he has been ever since. Along with his older brother Cody and younger sister Marissa, the trio raced the USCC series where Timmy brought home a title in the Junior 14-17 class, as well many podiums in different classes. As far as the USXC series goes, Timmy has a championship in the Semi-Pro Improved class and is looking for one in the Semi-Pro stock class before he moves up to the pro class next year.

This year has been a big year for changes in the Kallock Racing trailer. For one, Timmy is now the only Kallock sibling racing out of their trailer. Cody and Marissa have retired from racing which leaves Timmy to hold down the fort. Perhaps the biggest change of all is the move from Arctic Cat to Skidoo. This is Timmy’s first year ever not on a Cat and so far it seems to be working out for him.

After a torn rotator cuff and labrum at last years SOO I-500, Skidoo race director Tom Lawrence contacted Timmy to see if they could work something out and get him on a Skidoo for the 2017 season. Fast forward to winter and now Timmy is riding the new Skidoo MXZ XRS Iron Dog sled. Now four races into the season, Timmy has already seen some of his most impressive finishes. Despite getting lost at two races and a few minor sled problems,  he is currently sitting second in Semi-Pro stock points behind Ryan Trout (105). After his first overall win of the season this weekend in Theif River Falls, a spark has definitely been lit and he wants more.

Up next on the docket is the SOO I-500 where Timmy will be racing for the third year with Arneson Racing. As soon as he gets home, he will head up to Winnipeg for the start of the I-500. After that, he hopes to finish strong at the last rounds of the USXC series.
