Vintage Snow Oval Returns to ERX Motor Park, Elk River, MN

High Banked Oval, Costume Contest and End of Season Appreciation Scheduled for Thursday, March 21st, 2013

ERX VintageElk River, Minnesota – With high-banked turns and pancake flat straights, the final ERX Grassroots Snocross event (presented by KYMCO) of the season harkens back to simpler times in the snowmobile industry. A time when open megaphone exhausts, cleated tracks, and high-banked snow oval racing was king. While the focus will be on vintage racing, all traditional Thursday night classes will be featured including 120 and Trail classes. (New classes will include: Mom/Girlfriend Race, Mechanic Race, Vintage 2-up race and a Costume Race!)

“Last year’s ISOC National Event conflicted with our snow oval event,” said track co-owner Chris Carlson. “We really want to capture some of the excitement surrounding the vintage snowmobile scene. We know a lot of guys (and gals) won’t snocross their old sleds for fear of breaking them, but we intend on keeping the oval smooth and tailor it for the older sleds.”

Featured classes for the night will include leaf spring fan and open sleds as well as vintage 1995 sleds. Racing will start at 5:30 p.m. and the evening will also include some end of year shenanigans such as the return of the costume of cross contest (simply dress up and be eligible to win prizes) with prizes for fans and racers sporting the most bizarre and creative costume!

This will NOT be a points race, we will be announcing season points champions and handing out trophies during intermission.

As always, racers are strongly encouraged to pre-register for the race by MIDNIGHT the night before the race. Due to the incredible growth of the grassroots series, registration deadlines will be adhered to and late entries will be turned-away. Registration is just $30 per class, and $50 for Pro Lite and Pro with a 50% payback. Spectators pay just $10 for an evening of fun with kids 12 and under FREE.
