Brad Hulings came out of Edinboro, Pennsylvania in 1974 Racing Mercury Sno-Twisters. As a talented driver for a small motor shop called Northwest Engines, he quickly blazed his way into the record books as one of the most successful independent drivers in snowmobile racing history.
Brad was winner of the Adema cup as the winningest Masters Class driver in 1976, aboard his Sno-Twister.
Hulings stepped easily into the professional ranks in 1977 as a member of the famed Polaris Midnight Blue Express where he finished third in points in his rookie season aboard the RXL and led in points in 1978 during that short final season of the Polaris factory team.
Teaming up with the Scorpion Sno-Pro team for the 1979 season, Brad proved to be as skilled at development as he was as a driver. Named USSA High-Point driver in 1980, he won the World’s Championship on his Scorpion in 1981.
In 1982 he moved to the Ski-Doo team where he helped to develop the dominating Twin-Track Sno-Pro Sled. Brad won the Muscle Machine Shoot-Out in 1982 and his second World’s Championship in 1983. He raced professionally until 1989, driving for the Anderson and Neilsen Sno-Pro teams in a career spanning nearly two decades.
