The 2nd annual Big Nasty Snowmobile Grass Drags are set for Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014 near Boise, ID.
Many have heard about the Big Nasty Hillclimb. It is Idaho’s largest motorcycle event, pulling in 10,000 to 12,000 spectators every September to a 1,000-acre ranch near Boise, ID. Last year, Big Nasty organizers tracked down Brad and Lori Kent who are snowmobile grass drag enthusiasts from way back and they created and ran a grass drag in one of the Big Nasty pastures. There were 44 entries, which was awesome for a first-year event with almost no publicity.
The course is 500 feet long with a 500 foot run-out. The Big Nasty is very centrally located, kind of in the center of the greater Northwest, so that might be attractive to sledders from Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming, who will join the 813 motorcycle and 4-wheeler entries who rode in the hillclimb last year.
Event organizers are committed to grass drags for the long haul. They decided to abandon their successful Big Nasty mud drags this year (they had 78 entries last year), so that they could really focus on the grass drags. They are also planning on adding grass drags to their other hillclimb, the X-12 in Snowville, UT, in either 2015 or 2016, as soon as they can get a course built.
