Racine Extreme salutes the US Air Force and Nielsen Enterprises for an excellent action packed weekend of racing.

Tomi Ran his last race in the United States at the Grand Geneva on Sunday. He finished his last season with a fifth over all in pro open points and a fifth over all in pro stock points. Ahmasalo has been a huge asset to snocross racing in the US and Canada. He is sure to be an asset to snocross racing in Finland.  He has decided to move back to spend time with his family and race in his home country. Ahmasalo made a grand exit by taking the last lap, holding the checkered flag around the track at the Nielsen Grand Finale. The crowd was full of cheer and tears as Tomi will be missed by friends and fans both!  Good luck Tomi Ahmasalo!
