World Championship Derby announces race dates
“The AmSoil World Championship Derby spokesperson, known as the “Indianapolis 500 of snowmobile racing,” announced dates for this year’s races.
The 2012 derby dates are January 19-22, 2012 in Eagle River, Wis.
This year marks the 49th anniversary of the derby. The Track has been home to the race for 48 years.
Ice oval, snocross and vintage racing will all take place at this year’s derby.
Last year more than 30,000 spectators from around the world attended. The derby track builds and maintains the ice oval and sno cross track with over 2 million gallons of water, a 4,000 gallon water truck, a state of the art snow making machine, a Bombardier ME Plus Groomer, and a Nortec Ice Shaver.
The weekend begins with Thursday evening time trials, then the Friday Night Thunder’s Sweet Sixteen sponsored by the Snowmobile Headquarters where the sixteen fastest time qualifiers race for Pole Position in the Championship finals, into Saturday afternoon’s grueling heats, quarter and semi finals to fill nine more spots in the Top Ten. Sunday morning is the LCQ (last chance qualifier) to put two racers on the second row (twelve make the final field). In 2011, the drivers faced a new challenge, a thirty lap final with a mandatory pit stop after 15 laps. To make the stop more rewarding there was a $2500 pay out to the Jimmy John’s Mid Race winner and checks for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th also. This new format brought more “inside” race action to the spectators who could watch what normally only happens in the pits, as race crews tended to the sleds, drivers stretched muscles, had pit action brought right into the front and center viewing.”

One of the longest-running Winter X Games events — Snowmobile SnoCross racing — will no longer be a part of the Winter X program, as of this coming January’s event in Aspen, Colo., X Games officials announced Thursday. SnoCross debuted in 1998 as the first motorized sport in X Games history, and had been contested every year since then. Speed & Style, which combines snowmobiling’s freestyle and racing disciplines, and adaptive SnoCross, are also being eliminated.Each year the X Games monitor and evaluate the most appropriate sports for inclusion in each event and over time has continued to evolve in order to deliver the best product and most value for its athletes and fans. At this time, we decided that ESPN will focus on the disciplines of Snowmobile Freestyle and Best Trick and will not bring back the discipline of SnoCross and Speed & Style to Winter X Games Aspen.
SnoCross has been a great element of the Winter X Games for the past 14 years. We’ve enjoyed working with the athletes and look forward to seeing many of them in Aspen as they continue to compete in the other disciplines…
