10/19/09: Pro-Racer Gabe Bunke to Appear at SleddinXpo 2009


JERRY BUNKE
SNOWMOBILE HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE
DATE OF INDUCTION: January 18, 1996
CAREER SPAN: 1969-1978
COMPETITION TYPE: Oval
BRANDS RACED: Polaris
 
Jerry BunkeWidely regarded as one of the most talented and polished racing drivers to ever emerge in the oval track arena, Jerry Bunke posted one of Sno-Pro's most amazing records during his three-year career as a professional driver on the Polaris Midnight Blue Express racing team. An independent USSA racer since 1969, the talented Minnesotan was named Central Division High-Point Driver in 1973 and was offered a berth on the Polaris team in 1975. After a modest rookie season in 1976, Bunke exploded into the Sno-Pro limelight in 1977 with an astonishing 15 feature victories including the Kawartha Cup tile, the Alexandria International Championship and a rare four-class sweep of all Sno-Pro classes at the Wisconsin State Open Championship as well as double-up victories at the Ironwood Olympus and the North Star State Championships.

On the heels of posting both USSA Driver of the Year and Sno-Pro High Point honors in 1977, Bunke continued his charge to greatness in 1978 with a repeat of his Kawartha Cup triumph and a 440 feature win at the Eagle River World Championship. Bunke was poised to card another banner season in his third year as a professional when a competition accident at the Beausejour Power Toboggan Championships ended his life on February 26, 1978 at the age of 26.
