Moorhead, Minn. (February 24, 2015) – After roughly 4300 Miles on the road the Bunke Racing crew has made it home from Michigan for the third and final time this year. The guys brought home a podium finish in the No Bull Triple Crown. This Triple crown event consisted of three 500 lap races. First, Starting in Kinross, Michigan. The Bunke crew came out in full force and took the checkered flag nailing down the first place position. Next up for the No Bull was the Soo I-500. The team had a great sled again this year and were determined to win. The race was unfortunately cut short due to snow conditions and their position at that time was once again on the podium taking the third place position. The team was devastated with the call of the race breaking the winning streak. Which, made them push forward to the third and final race in Lincoln, Michigan. Heading into the third and final leg of the triple crown Gabe and Aaron were leading the triple crown by two points. A late start and timing wire issues again had the team frustrated. Around lap 320 the timing wire was cut and the officials had to cut the race short again. Unfortunately, at this time in the race the Bunke racing sled was sitting in seventh position. “On these longer races we strategize for the end and always plan for 500 laps,” said Gabe Bunke “ Because of bad luck and shortened races our good fortune was cut short and we ended in the third position for the Triple Crown. “

“We wouldn’t be able to compete and be successful without the help of our sponsors and crew members. We appreciate all the support we have received and we are now more determined than ever to get back out and run the No Bull Triple crown in 2016 and win. Thank you to all of our sponsors and fans for your continued support, “ said Gabe Bunke. “ We have two more cross country races to finish out our 2014-2015 season and we are looking for that checkered flag.”
