New schedule highlights great venues, racing for upcoming winter
ALBERTVILLE, MINN.~ Coming off the heels of the most successful year of snocross racing in the sport’s storied history, AMSOIL Championship Snocross, Powered by RAM, is set for a memorable, history-changing 2018-2019 season.
Snocross fans from Wyoming to up-state New York will once again benefit from a schedule that places the extreme sport in the core markets of snowmobile enthusiasts. Traditional stops in Duluth, Shakopee, Deadwood and Lake Geneva will be complimented with recently added events in New York, Michigan, Iowa and Jackson Hole, Wyo. The tour will not add any new market this season and will continue to build on last years eight events, which saw nearly 100,000 fans soak in the heart-pumping experience.
“We are extremely fortunate to have built such great partnerships with our venues and local promoters,” said ISOC president Carl Schubitzke. “Many of these venues have been part of snocross for almost three decades, and the new venues we’ve added the past few years are as excited as we are to put on world-class events.”
With a strong schedule in place, the series continues its commitment to remarkable racing, including an exceptionally talented group of pro riders returning to the series in 2018-2019. Past pro champions Kody Kamm and Tim Tremblay look to carry the torch after 11-time champion Tucker Hibbert retired from racing this past summer. Despite Hibbert’s absence, the pro class is chock-full of racers capable of winning the title this year.
“For the past several years, we have been working hard to continue the tradition of great racing, no matter who is on the track,” said Schubitzke “Snocross has great talent across all fields, and we while we will miss Tucker’s professionalism and ability, we are going to see some of the best racing we have ever seen. The whole field is ready to step-up and win.”
