Stanwood’s Hunter Guthrie finishes runner-up to ‘Dale Earnhardt’ of snowmobile racing at World Championships

Hunter Guthrie was standing with his snowmobile on the infield of the World Championship Derby Complex and was having a quick conversation with his girlfriend, Taylor Prins, when he looked up and found his mom, Becky, sitting in the stands.

Despite the minus-24 degree windchill in Eagle River, Wisconsin, Becky had tears running down her face. The emotions had gotten to Guthrie, too, as he stood next to his girlfriend and waited for his teammate at Run ‘Em Down Racing to hop into his next race.
