Derby Track Invites Die-Hard Enthusiasts to Participate in Vintage Weekend January 11-13
For all you old, die hard snowmobilers and your old never-say-die sleds we’ll once again ride from the Derby Track to downtown Eagle River, Wisconsin, and back again during Vintage Weekend January 11-13. It will all happen on Saturday night after the day’s racing is complete. On Saturday, fans will be allowed to bring their classic snowmobiles inside the grounds. Sleds Free – riders not. (Snowmobiles must enter from the north end of the track by the red barn).
We’ll assemble in front the parked motorhomes from the North end of the Hot Seats towards the fourth corner of the track. This will make a nice display for fans to see your machines. At 6 p.m., we’ll ride into downtown Eagle River and back to the race track for a lap or two around the famed ice oval. No racing, just low and slow; pictures encouraged.
When the ride is complete, everybody will have their choice of going up to visit the Hall of Fame or just calling it a good evening. This should be about an hour and a half activity.
This is going to be a very special year for it’s the 50th Anniversary of the Derby. The weekend after Vintage will see many of the past champions returning as well as their actual winning sleds or replicas of the same.
With so much going on, you may want to extend your Vintage weekend visit into Derby Weekend. There’s only going to be one fiftieth and you deserve to be here. For more information contact the AMSOIL Eagle River Derby Track at 715-479-4424 or visit www.derbytrack.com.
