Feb. 5, 2017
For the second year in a row, #74 Bunke Racing went to victory lane in the 49th Annual International 500 Snowmobile Race. After nearly nine hours on the track, and a breakdown that put the team behind, at lap 445 Bunke Racing took over once again, all the way to the finish line.
The patriarch of Bunke Racing, Gabe Bunke, the Moorhead, Minn. standout, recorded his seventh Soo I-500 of his career and fifth in the last six years. His teammate, Aaron Christensen, the 36-year-old from Metiskow, Alberta has scored his fifth Soo I-500 win of his career and also his fifth in the last six years. Finally, for the youngest member of the team, 21-year-old Taylor Bunke, it was the second win in two career starts for the Moorhead, Minn. rider.
