    The World Championship Derby Track of Eagle River, WI, is pleased to welcome Country Cat as our new Naming Rights Derby Track Sponsor! As a successful powersports dealer – as well as the home of 4-time World Champion PJ Wanderscheid – Country Cat has a unique perspective that will prove valuable in it’s partnership with the Derby Track for this historic event that predates the Super Bowl.

    Country Cat began as a small Arctic Cat dealership in the fall of 1991. The owners, Dave and Mark Wanderscheid, were both quite young when they opened the business in their parent’s barn. Dave was 20 and Mark only 16 at that time. That first year, they placed a small order of only 14 snowmobiles. Today, they have grown to one of the largest Arctic Cat dealerships in the nation, selling 100’s of machines as well as large numbers of parts, accessories and clothing yearly. In addition to Arctic Cat snowmobiles, they now carry the up-and-coming brand of Textron Off Road ATV’s and UTV’s, as well as the staple of the golf cart industry, E-Z-GO.

    In today’s fast-paced powersports industry, businesses such as Country Cat are a rarity. They offer free technical support to their customers, and have multiple Catmaster technicians on hand so that every machine they work on receives the best service possible. Whether purchasing a machine, parts, clothing, or accessories, they will go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction.

    “We are very proud of our dealership and the multiple awards we’ve earned over the years are proof of that.” Explains PJ Wanderscheid, General Manager. “The awards we’ve received include the 2006 Servicing Dealer of the Year; 2008 ATV Dealer of the Year; 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 U.S. Snowmobile Dealer of the Year. We are the only dealership in the nation that can claim this. Country Cat is exclusively a Textron Specialized Vehicles (Includes Arctic Cat Snowmobiles, Textron Off Road vehicles, and E-Z-GO Golf Carts) store so that we can provide you, our customer, with service that’s better than any other dealer out there!”
