Racer Spotlight: Scott Preston
Scott Preston has been snowmobiling since he could walk. His first ride on a sled was his father’s 1976 Ski-doo 340 TNT silver bullet. From there, his first sled was a 1998 Ski-doo MXZX 440 that he raced on the RMR Snow Cross circuit from 1998 to 2001.
These days, Scott’s racing the Factory Sport 600 and the SOO 600. This past 2018 season alone he’s had five first place finishes. Before RMR-XC, Scott had many summers of drag racing. His most memorable moment happened in Epping, N.H. at the Amateur Pro Light 600 in 2016. Mandy Cole was his driver and took home the win.
Scott is sponsored by Polaris, Laquerres, Stud Boy, Venom Products, Klotz Oil and Hi-performance Engineering. Outside of snowmobiling, Scott’s job includes excavating, equipment operating and truck driving. “I eat, sleep, dream snowmobiles 24/7, 12 months a year,” he said. “No joke!”
His most memorable moment of the past season was the ice of Lake Luzerne.
