Our family started T&N Racing in the summer of 1994 when our son, “Nick,” decided he wanted to start ice oval racing. We started working at putting together what is still known today as one of the best kids’ racing teams ever. Throughout the years of Kitty Cat and 120 ice oval racing, T&N Racing has won races throughout the entire Midwest and Canada. Taking this success with Nick, we graduated into the Juniors class racing full-size sleds and continued our great winning ways. When Nick was just 16 years old, he did what only one other person, “The Late – Jim Herzig,” had ever done--that is to win four “World Championships” in one day in Eagle River, Wisconsin. To this day, this record still stands!
The next year, T&N Racing focused their racing efforts for Nick on the most premier ice oval class, the Pro Champ 440. Nick quickly became the youngest winner to ever win a final in this class’s history. Also, in 2008, our family was fortunate enough to win the USSA “Family of the Year.” This high standing award is voted on by our peers who acknowledged the commitment of our family to the sport of snowmobile ice oval racing.
Since then Nick has had several major accomplishments including:
2017 World Championship in Eagle River, WI
2012 World Championship in Eagle River, WI
2009 and 2012 Canadian Power Toboggan Championships - Beausejour, Manitoba
2013, 2011 and 2010 Grand Prix de Valcourt - Valcourt, Quebec
2012 Bonnechere Cup - Eganville, Ontario
"High Points" in Pro Champ 440 and Pro Formula 600 in 2009 and 2010
2012 Fire On Ice - Weyauwega, WI
2nd, 3rd and 5th place finishes in TLR Cup Year end points
2012 USSA Driver of the Year (voted on by our peers)
In preparation for the 2019, T&N Racing is gearing up for another exciting season. The team, being led by Nick’s dad, Alan, is currently fabricating and assembling a new Polaris race sled for Nick in a continued effort for success in the upcoming season. Nick will be piloting a 2019 Polaris Champ 440. We will be competing in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, and Canada racing in the USSA, CPTC, and the Eastern Pro Tour Series.
“T&N Racing not only represents Polaris at the highest level at the race track, their off track presence and their willingness to go the extra mile for their fans, sponsors and to support the sport is second to none!”
– Thomas Rager Jr. Director of Polaris Racing
"Nick is a great role model for how a professional racer and team should act for my kids"
