What a cool race. Its like the baja 1k for snowmobiles. Much better than some lame spectator sport such as sno x

Why

Because Polaris is getting its ass handed to it in Sno X

:snack:

nah, because watching sleds go round and round on a man made course for a few laps is boring to me, always has been. Not taking anything away from the guys that do it, I know I couldn't but its just not my thing. Now if they ran the track for 100 + plus miles or maybe even 50 then id maybe find it more to my likings

Winning 2 years in a row seems impossible let alone 3. So much can go wrong in this race. But I can’t wait it’s a lot of fun following along this race
By far my favorite race of the year. I missed out on the Soo this year due to the Snowmobile Clubs of Dane County put on an Easter Seals event.

Good Point

NASCAR same concept

Watching the Xfinity Series at Road America for years in person really changes the perspective on going round and round versus running a road course

The original ISOC, in the 90's was spectacular, back when they used the full track and ran 100 miles. Everyone thought WSA was a joke and would never survive. Hell, one year ISOC was going to use the Snow Cross track for the Kitty Kat races. :bc2:

There should be a few dirt spots Cat could win on but they don't seem too good on snow.
The dirt sure did not help much in the Soo for Cat. :c-n:

A lot of that Cat racing heritage people talk about comes from Races like this, the Soo and the 1-500 xc races.


Cat historically has done very well at these races...just not as well as polaris

I enjoy keeping tabs on this just because it's so unique. The outcome isn't so important to me as a follower it's more the weird stuff they have to endure. Over the years this race has given the racers every obstacle imaginable including no snow, freezing temperatures, open water, too much snow and on and on. This or Cain's Quest are the most difficult to just finish. Just as yearly sales go to Poo and Doo the same is true for entries in these races. Let the toughest and best prepared team win.

I mean Polaris just showed the world they were the fastest sleds in an oval on dirt this past weekend .. might as well show they are the fastest through the dirt across the tundra too.
:thumbsup: don't forget, this is the Clutch Kit World Championship

Personally I find it boring as hell. If it wasn't for C2C and his posts I wouldn't even know if it was still in existence.
just trying to draw attention away from Cat's latest ass whupping. ;)
