Rounds 2 and 3 of the 2018 AMA National Snow Bike Series are coming to the legendary World Championship Snowmobile Derby at Eagle River, WI, this weekend, Jan. 19-20.
These are two separate events with separate entry fees, separate awards and separate points. Both days will run a tight, jumpy snocross type track and will be electronically scored.
There will be practice sessions available on Thursday afternoon, exact starting time TBA, probably after 1 p.m. on Jan. 18.
Round 2, on Friday, Jan. 19 will only have races for the circuit’s three national classes: Pro men, Pro women and Senior 40+. Exact times for Friday's racing are not yet set. There will be hundreds of snowmobiles also racing at that time, both on the ice oval and on the snocross track.
Round 1 of the three classes will run during the day, likely between 10 a.m. and noon, and the finals for all three classes will be at night under lights between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Pro men, women and seniors, you can register on-line for Friday's round 2 race here. Pre-register online ahead of time if possible.
Round 3, on Saturday, Jan. 20, will offer the three national classes, plus four regular support classes: trophy women, kids, 350 trophy and Open Development trophy. This will be a pure snow bike only show on Saturday evening under the lights, starting in the early evening at 5 or 6 p.m. after the snowmobiles have run.
