HURT Nation interlopers infiltrate SkiTona 500… Major defection in the works?

Austin Huneck in qualifying… ready to defect to the Evil Empire??

One can only speculate that the appearance of some of HURT Nordic’s top skiers, along with a former (probably disgruntled) director, means that a major shift of talent is in the works.  Could it be that the powerhouse Huneck family is planning to sever ties with HURT Nation to join the Evil Empire?  Probably…

Tim Huneck.. moto-ski-trekking his brood into the Peru Nordic fold???

The Huneck’s joined the regular War Ensemble crowd for the high flying excitement of the annual SkiTona 500.  Skiers raced one qualifying “Hot lap” before doing a grueling 5 lap race over the relentless Gauntlet Stadium SuperSpeedway Oval.

Top Qualifier, Rose, couldn’t maintain Pole Position (although he has excellent pole plant position in this photo)

Chris Rose was the top qualifier, but was overtaken by Austin Huneck.  Tim Huneck qualified fourth, but quickly moved up the standings.  A poorly-timed pit while in second position bumped him back into third overall.  Jim Kobak qualified with the second fastest time, but couldn’t hold on to the frenetic pace, “I was having exhaust issues, and by exhaust, I mean I was exhausted.”

Cool jacket.

Kobak and Bob Maswick took part in their traditional pre-race warmup of doing some peakbagging before the race.   Today the pair attacked Street and Nye mts before bibbing up for the SkiTona.  “I felt great,” said Maswick, “my new jacket really matches my color palette.”
