Race of Champions is next weekend

After spending seven years with the Greater Northern Snocross Series, Dan Schmitz is now the CEO of the Midwest Snocross Series.

“It’s a really exciting new group of people,” he said. “We started out with not a nickel in our pocket and we just were able to buy a groomer.

“This makes us to be able to build our own tracks and not rely on the venue to build them, and we can build them the way we want to, for the kids, for the age group that’s racing. Our first race with this groomer, it was an absolute fabulous track. ,,, It is huge to have that piece of equipment and be able to do the things we want to do with it.”

The results will be on display Saturday and Sunday, when the 44th annual Classic Race of Champions sponsored by the Plymouth Snow Rangers Snowmobile Club will be held.

Races at Ranger Park begin at 9 a.m. and includes the Adam Muesegades Memorial. 

The cost is for one day is $15 or $25 for the weekend. Those 12 and under are free with an adult.

 Ranger Park is located at the intersection of Hwy 57 and County Road C just on the Eastern outskirts of Plymouth. 

Concessions will be served in a heated building and a band will play from 5-9 p.m. on Saturday.
