TEAM FRUSTRATION REUNION
This past weekend, one of the best independent race teams to ever race snowmobiles got together for the first time in a very long time. Team Frustration raced Cats, Mercs, and Polaris sleds, all with great success under the guidance of team leader Jerry Simonson.
Not only did this team win, but it also produced some of the best racers of the time, from Jim Dimmerman who was picked up by Team Arctic, two two-time World Champion Steve Thorsen, and top independent driver Todd Elmer.
Great thanks to Ashley Ecker (Steve Thorsen’s daughter) for sharing the photos!
