After the accident that claimed Jerry Bunke, Polaris pulled the plug on the most effective factory race team in motorsports. So the team packed up and headed to West Yellowstone for the last race of the season in the United States. They brought the sleds and let some of the best independent guys drive them. But the crew and drivers from Polaris just watched the races and celebrated Jerry’s life – as well as what they knew was the end of a very good thing.
These amazing pictures are from Greg Marier, who worked with the team in those years. He got them directly from Steve Thorsen’s private stash.
