The Roar of Snowmobiles

Published On: Wednesday, January 12, 2011By Categories: BlogTags: , ,

The Great Northern Snocross Series (GNSS) snowmobile races are coming to the Jefferson County Fair Park on Saturday, January 22, 2011. The Wilbur Betschler Memorial Grandstand area will be converted into a derby-style snocross track loaded with bumps and jumps. The event is a cumulative effort between the Jefferson County Fair Park, Fantasy Moto LLC and the Eagle River Derby Track.

Part of a new winter-long series of races held throughout the state of Wisconsin, GNSS offers a professionally run regional circuit where up and coming snocross racers have a place to hone their skills and showcase their talents. Racers ranging from as young as 4 to over 50 years of age can compete on machines ranging from 120cc to 600cc. Classes are broken down by racer age, machine size, rider skill level and/or a combination of all three. Practice begins at 8am on race day, with races following at 9am.

Food and beverages will be available on the grounds all day; carry-ins will not be allowed. Following the full day of racing, the event moves into the Activity Center for an awards ceremony and concert featuring one of the nation’s top 80’s rock tribute bands, “Hairball.”

Race registration information and a complete schedule can be found at the GNSS website, or by calling Scott Biese at 920-419-2863.
