SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) -- A Minnesota man has won the I-500 snowmobile race here for the fourth time. A Wasilla rider was fifth in Saturday's race.

Corey Davidson is only the second person ever to win four times. His co-driver was Tim Hjelle.

Second was John Bosek, who was leading until his snowmobile broke down. Greg Barnaby of Caledonia finished third and Gordie Postula was fourth.

Chad Gueco from Wasilla and his co-driver, Travis Adams of the Yukon, rounded out the top five.

The race included a fatal crash.

Mike Kolbus, 31, of Muinising died Saturday after falling off his snowmobile, investigators said. He was hit by two other snowmobilers traveling at speeds of roughly 70 mph.
