Snowmobile Racing

By Angel Chodie

After its invention, snowmobile racing increased rapidly in popularity. The powerful rush of adrenaline while racing at high speeds is incomparable and addictive. If this is one of your passions, with good snowmobile shocks and a reasonable membership fee, you can start racing like the pros.

You might hear references to two different circuits while discussing racing. Across the country and up into Canada is the National circuit. Covering the upper Midwest are the Regional circuits.

Snowmobile racing is open to those who are under eighteen. Many professionals began racing early on, starting anywhere from nine to fifteen years old. The only thing required is an original, notarized minor waiver form.

Safety and care are always held in high regard. A rulebook holds specific safety requirements, such as body armor, helmet, and shin guards. Keeping everything, including your snowmobile shocks, functioning well will also keep you safe and ready to perform.

Another must to snowmobile racing are sled and bib numbers. Snowmobile shocks do their best to counteract uneven terrain, but even while racing these numbers should be both visible and legible at all times. Most racers choose first-come/first-serve from three-digit numbers, while pros and some grandfathered semi pros have their pick of numbers single or double.

In snocross you race according to your class. Your class is made up of your age, competition level, and type of snowmachine. More specific information is available at each tour.

There are three ways to advance to the next level or class in racing. First, you may advance automatically according to your age. Second, the race director may ask the dominating racer to advance to the next level even if above the specified age group.

Third, you may fill out a Class Advancement form and request the Race Director to come watch you. This is called a Racer Resume. The form must be filled out one week before the race, and will be the basis of the director’s decision regarding your advancement.
