Cambridge man wins at Brainerd raceway

Kyle Lundberg only lost one watercross race over the weekend at Brainerd International Raceway, and that was by a mere 3/1,000ths of a second.

Kyle Lundberg, of Cambridge, was one race away from a sweep last weekend at Brainerd Int’l Raceway in the International Watercross Association’s Wet & Wild Weekend events. 

In the Pro Bike/Sled class, Lundberg rode a 2012 Suzuki to a win in Saturday’s finals against Bruce Sampson and his 1999 Suzuki. Although Lundberg was 3/1,000ths of a second away from a perfect reaction time on the starting line, he couldn’t hold off Sampson at the finish line. Sampson caught and passed Lundberg, finishing with a winning time of 8.200 seconds at 157.30 mph.

Sunday was a different story. Lundberg knocked off three other riders to return to the finals where he faced off against Bob Tallberg, of Burnsville, on the back of a 2003 SkiDoo sled. Lundberg nearly had another perfect reaction time, but it was a moot point as Tallberg fouled at the starting line, handing Lundberg the win.
