Hemmer Motorsports brings together two northern Michigan athletes as teammates for the 2023- 2024 Snocross season

By Dominic Santina, Contributing Writer

Over the last couple years, there have been two riders in the state of Michigan that have put the ISOC National Snocross circuit on notice. Both of them have belonged to the Polaris brands and have been dedicated to the brand while many have made decisions to change it up. Now they will end up being teammates in the same semi.

Inanna Hauger, a Boyne City native and current Pro-Am Women rider has signed with Hemmer Motorsports this fall. Hauger hopes the transition to Hemmer helps turn the tides on what was a challenging 2021-2022 season.

Tyler Archambault, a Mancelona native has been promoted to the Hemmer Motorsports semi, as he makes the jump from the Sport class to Pro Lite. Archambault raced last season for Hemmer Motorsports as a satellite rider but is excited to make the jump to the team trailer.

Both riders will be making a trip to Minnesota to head to Hemmer’s training facility this fall. They will be able to practice and train with the team and mechanics.

Inanna Hauger # 331

Hauger took over the Pro Women ride for older sister Cora Hauger in the 2016 – 2017 season. She spent her first few seasons racing for her family team of Hauger Motorsports. Hauger had her first breakout season came during the 2018 – 2019 season where she finished fourth overall in the point standings.

A promising start to the 2019 – 2020 was derailed with injuries which limited her to just 33 points. She bounced back though during the 2020 – 2021 season by regularly ending up on the box. This allowed her to put the series on notice that she will be a serious championship contender. Hauger ended up earning her first top 3 finish in total points with a finish of 3 overall.

The 2021 – 2022 season would again make a jump in the championship standings. As she made a breakthrough by not only winning her first race but winning multiple races throughout the season. This allowed her to earn her highest finish in championship standings, with a second place finish, 60 points behind the series champion.

Hauger earned most of her success by being able to grab the holeshot and hold on for race wins, if not consistently ending on the podium. With grabbing so many holeshots, she was able to earn the nickname, Holeshot Hauger. While she was the one pulling the trigger, her father Joe Hauger was the one helping pull off the great starts behind the scenes.  As he has not only been her dad, but the funding behind her racing, transporting her sled and her mechanic for many years.

The 2021 – 2022 success led to her first team deal, where she sign”ed to ride for Frattalone Racing during the 2022 -2023 season. While she remained healthy and continued to contend for race wins. Some mechanical issues caused it to be a very stressful season, and more frustrating than the previous season. Even through all of the adversity, Hauger was able to hold onto another top three finish in the points standings.

With the new deal to ride for Hemmer Motorsports for the 2023 – 2024 season, Hauger is optimistic for the upcoming season:

“ I am very excited to be racing for Hemmer Motorsports and Polaris this winter. The team is amazing, very welcoming and has such a great family atmosphere. I truly couldn’t be more excited. I have the top mechanics, crew and teammates and I am excited to work with them this winter,” said Hauger.

Hauger knows she has a great opportunity ahead with Hemmer motorsports but she is not just taking that for granted.

Polaris has come up a great sled this winter! I will for sure have the best snowmobile in the Pro Women’s class. I am very confident going into this season. I have been training all summer long for this winter, so I can chase my championship, said Hauger.”

Hauger is set up well for another title chase and might be set up the best she ever has been. Can she help bring Hemmer Motorsports their first Pro Women Championship, as well as her first as well? Time will tell, but the moves this summer look promising.

Tyler Archambault # 901

Archambault has been working his way through the ISOC series over the last few years. While also being able to get extra practice time at his hometown track of the Northern Power Race Park for the last two seasons.

Archambault first found success at the national level during the 2018- 2019 season. As he competed in the Sport Lite class and earned a third place in the championship standings. The 2019 – 2020 season was a little bit of a struggle, but also saw Archambault make select appearances in the Sport class.

The 2020 – 2021 season saw him find success in the Sport class, as he had a top 10 finish in the championship standings. Archambault finished seventh overall, just 1 point behind sixth, but 60 points out of fifth place. The 2021 – 2022 season saw Archambault continue his rise in the standings, as he finished sixth overall in the championship battle.

However, it was last season, during the 2022- 2023 season that he came into his own in the Sport class. Archambault found himself on the podium multiple times throughout the season, while also earning his first career Sport class victory. All of which helped lead to a top three finish in the championship standings for the Sport class.

Archambault had help from the Hemmer motorsports trailer last season, but will be brought into the trailer this season. He will also make the jump from the Sport class to the next step up, which is the Pro Lite class. Hemmer brought Archambault in to replace former Hemmer Motorsports Pro Lite rider Nick Lorenz.

While Archambault has been apart of the Hemmer program, he knows this move into the semi is a huge reward,

“Being able to race out of the semi this year means everything to me. I’ve worked my whole life for this moment. I am so grateful to be given this opportunity. I will finally have a professionally maintained sled, so I can solely focus on racing,” said Archambault

He knows that the team is going to give him all that he needs to compete in his rookie season in the Pro Lite class. He hopes not only to compete in the championship standings, but for podiums and race wins.
