USCC East New York 100 Cancelled
Minot, ND (Feb 21st, 2012) The race that was scheduled to take place on March 3, 2012 in Inlet, NY has been cancelled. As many of you know, mother nature has not been friendly to the world of snowmobile racing this winter, and we are continuing to feel the effects. The area doesn’t have enough snow on the site where the race was to take place, therefore forcing the USCC East and the promoter of the race to make the difficult decision to cancel it. There is no significant snow or cold weather in the forecast that would allow us to make this race work. The officials of the USCC East have tried to find an alternate place to hold the event, but the lack of a “true winter” seems to be effecting the whole Northeast.
“Making a decision like this is not an easy thing to do for sure. All year long, there is a lot of work and time that goes into planning these races and having to cancel one is a huge decision” said Erik Frigon, the coordinator for the USCC East. “We have a lot of racers that come from the New York area that drive long distances to the other races that were looking forward to the “home” race”. “Unfortunately we can’t control the weather and I hope that the racers and fans understand”.
Both the USCC East and the promoter will continue to work together to start planning for the 2013 season and put this behind us. Look for a bigger and better event for 2013!
This race being cancelled leaves us with the Maine 100 in Greenville, ME to cap off the season. As of now, there is snow there and plenty of ice. So, the outlook is a good one and we look forward to seeing you all in Greenville.
