Minneapolis – Dec. 30, 2011 – While unseasonably warm temperatures are blanketing much of country, including the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area, there’s been just enough chill in the air at night to make a mountain of snow at Shakopee’s Canterbury Park Racetrack and Card Casino – right on time for the Jan. 6-7 running of The Traxxas National, presented by Jimmy John’s, rounds 5 & 6 of the 2011-‘12 ISOC AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series’ (ACSS).
Tickets start at $15 and are available at the gate or online at www.canterburypark.com and snocross.com
With six snow making machines blazing ‘round the clock when it’s 32-degrees or colder, ACSS Director of Operations/Race Director Carl Schubitzke assured snocross fans planning on attending the Canterbury event that next weekend’s race will go on as scheduled – with or without help from Mother Nature!
“Snow making has been a difficult task with this warm weather, but we’ve been on top of it – and will continue to be – so that AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series fans will see the world’s best racers competing in Shakopee,” said Schubitzke. “We encourage anybody from Minnesota that is missing snow and snowmobiling to come check out the action next weekend, January 6th and 7th, at Canterbury Park.”
Not only does ACSS racing at Canterbury Park showcase the best pro racers, fans will also get to see the top amateur kids and women racers – many of whom are from Minnesota. Watch two full days of great racing in front of Canterbury’s comfortable indoor stadium seating setting, featuring all of the amenities associated with a professional racing circuit – right in the middle of the Minnesota winter!
