Eagle River, WI - International Snowmobile Racing (ISR) has been purchased by Todd Achterberg and is now located in Eagle River, WI, at 1527 N. Railroad Street in the World Snowmobile Headquarters building.
Achterberg is the former general manager of the Amsoil Eagle River Derby Track and brings 13 years of management and experience with snowmobile racing to ISR.
Formed 31 years ago by Richard Goekey, Thomas Zernia and Olav Aaen, ISR provides a common ground and rules structure for the many different snowmobile sanctioning bodies, clubs and organizations that wish to conduct races in a safe and organized manner.
As owner and CEO of ISR, Achterberg's strong leadership skills and playing an active role in the daily activity of the company will provide a strong foundation for IRS to move forward. His past Derby experience has given him the opportunity to work first hand in every aspect of snowmobile racing. This experience and knowledge of the industry will allow him to pave the way for even greater growth of snowmobile racing in the coming years.
"ISR has already started on the development of new programs that will launch in the coming months," Achterberg said. "These will bring additional opportunities for race promoters and organizations to produce improved events. We are building on a 20-year long commitment to conduct snowmobile races that fit and fulfill the needs of these organizations."
