Poster made for the Polaris 50th Anniversary – 1978 edition. Features Jerry Bunke, Steve Thorsen and Brad Hulings, along with some very notable “Midnight Blue Express” riders like TJ Patrick, Dick Hautzinger and Todd Elmer.
1978 started out tough – Doug Hayes and the Ski-Doo team really got it all together. But as the season progressed, Polaris picked up steam. The team was preparing to fly to Sweden to help introduce SnoPro to Europe, when the accident in Beasejour put a hold on all further factory racing from Polaris.
