- The 2011-12 Amsoil Championship Snocross Series will start with a new twist
in Duluth, MN. this November. The Amsoil Dominator race
will offer up a winner-take-all, $10,000 prize and adds a unique format to the
Friday night show at the Amsoil Duluth National.
Sixteen riders will go going head-to-head in a bracket-style
elimination race. The winner of each one-on-one race moves on to the next round,
while the loser goes back to the trailer for the night. After four rounds of
racing, one rider will stand alone at the top of Spirit Mountain,
$10,000 richer and a newly crowned Amsoil Dominator.
"We wanted to do something new and exciting in Duluth," Carl
Schubitzke, ISOC Director of Operations, said. "The Amsoil Dominator will
be a fast-paced, man-versus-man, brand-against-brand event that will have race
fans on the edge of their seats. This race will set the tone for an exciting
year of racing on the ACSS."
How it works:
The top eight riders from the 2010-11 ACSS Pro Open points
championship are automatically seeded. There will be two 15-minute seeding
sessions on Friday night. From these sessions, the next eight fastest Pros
(combining their fastest lap times from the two sessions), will move on to the
Amsoil Dominator round of 16. After that, it will be one-on-one for two and a
half laps with the winner moving on to the next round.
