Why would we be talking about motorcycles here on VintageSleds.com? Because Gary Mathers got his start in motorsports with snowmobiles at Polaris way back in 1973.
Gary was named racing director there and was put in charge of the race team at home and on the road. He was managing the Polaris SnoPro Squad in 1974 when they dominated as well as in 1975 when they came out on top again. He then went to Kawasaki and managed their short lived SnoPro effort.
When Gary moved to run the motorcycle racing programs at Kawasaki then later Honda, his keen eye for talent and drive to succeed helped him dominate with those racing efforts as well.
