Ashley a mod and member on another Forum was in a accident
Jan 27, 2015 - 10:05 PM - by stevem5215
Ashley was/is a mod on the other site and while I know a lot of you are members on both sites I wanted everyone to know that if you can show your support for her it would be appreciated. Here's a couple of places you can donate with and the email address for paypal. If you want to read more about what happened I would suggest looking at the info over there as I don't want to cut and paste too much information without permissions. But here's the paypal address and a go fund me address to help if you'd like to.

Steve mod over there.....

riderehab@gmail.com was also setup as a paypal account to accept donations for Ashley.
I am Ashley's fiance for those that do not know.
Thank you and best wishes,

and the fund me page:

Here's a link to Ashley's Go Fund Me Page. Give what you can and say a prayer. Let her family know that HCS cares.

Also if you have a Paypal account this is a better option send money to riderehab@gmail.com thanks for your support for Ashley and Jesse

Tax breaks on Your New Arctic Cat for a few More Hours
Dec 30, 2014 - 11:14 AM - by NickJ

Great News for Farmers and Ranchers who are looking to add a utility vehicles to their work fleet. Section 179 of the tax code now extends to the UTV and ATV lines of vehicles. If you get down to the dealer within the next 13 hours, you will be able to take advantage of the deductions as well as bonus depreciation on new equipment.

There is a lot of leagalese in the tax laws that I don't altogether understand, but from what I can deduce is this. Section 179 will allow businesses to deduct the full purchase prive of qualifying equipment purchased or financed by December 31, 2014. You will be able to deduct the Full Purchase Price from your gross income. This is a deduction that is essentially designed to encourage businesses to buy equipment and essentially invest in themselves.

In years past, this was jokingly referred to as the "Hummer Deduction" because heavy vehicles like Humvees and larger SUV's fell into the same classification as the HD trucks that many businesses were using as fleet vehicles. Since that time, the law has been revised the limits on "business vehicles."

The revisions of to the tax law have actually started to benefit the small business instead of rewarding those that sought out the "Hummer Loophole" to buy a nice new SUV.

When a business buys equipment , the business is typically allowed to write the purchase price off in yearly increments. In example, if a business were to buy a $50,000 piece of equipment, they would be made to depreciate it at roughly $10,000/year for 5 years.

NOW, that same business will be able to write off the entire purchase price of that piece of equipment in the same year that they made the purchase.

*Note: This is just my interpretation of what I been able to read on the subject, so if I got any of this wrong, do NOT send the IRS my way as your source. I make no guarantees that this information is true or accurate.

If you are looking for more information on Section 179, check it out here: Section 179 and Bonus Depreciation | Section179.Org

For now, get down to your Arctic Cat Dealer to get on board for this extension on Section 179. Take advantage of the extension before they revise the law!

Team arctic delivers a swift kick at the usxc cross-country season opener
Dec 23, 2014 - 1:15 PM - by NickJ

Team Green Wins More with Victory in 14 of 20 classes and 36 of 50 Podium Places


Thief River Falls, Minn. (Dec. 22, 2014) – As the 2014-2015 USXC cross-country season kicked off at the Gerald Dyrdahl Memorial Pine Lake event near Gonvick, Minn., it was the hard working and talented Team Arctic crew who were doing the kicking. The results left painful imprints on the competitions’ back ends as Team Green captured 14 of 20 class wins and 36 of 50 podium finishes on production ZR6000R XC and ZR4000RR snowmobiles with EFI engines, proving again that Arctic Cat wins more.

The wins came in all categories and at all levels, starting with Zach Herfindahl’s victory in Pro Open. Herfindahl and teammate Wes Selby delivered strong performances in the thrilling 100-mile Pro Stock final, with Selby finishing second and Herfindahl in fourth, less than three seconds separating the top-four finishers. Dylan Stevens debuted in the Semi Pro Stock class and on Team Arctic with a win. And Lance Efteland delivered the ironman performance of the weekend, winning Semi Pro Improved, taking a close second to Stevens in Semi Pro Stock and then jumping into the Pro Stock class where he finished eighth!

Other Team Arctic class winners at Pine Lake included Chad Dyrdahl, Jeremy Grove, Mason Kallock, Marty Feil, Hunter Houle, Ean Voigt, Keaton Black, Sara Larson, Savannah Landrus and Tyler Knutson. In addition to claiming the lion’s share of podium places, Team Arctic racers swept the podium in five classes at Pine Lake.

“We’re thrilled to win 70 percent of the finals and the podium places,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “The first race of any season requires a huge effort on the part of our racers and crews to set up and dial-in their snowmobiles. Especially for first-year sleds like the new ZR6000R XC with the 600 C-TEC2 engine and the new ZR4000RR in the ProCross chassis. We have some more work to do to help all of our racers better learn about these sleds, but earning 11 class wins with these new machines is a great start.”

The next stop on the 2015 USXC cross-country schedule is Jan. 3, 2015, in Detroit Lakes, MN.
