Officials announce 2017 event schedule for East Coast Snocross Conx2share Series, Presented by Woody’s Traction and FXR

CLARKSBURG, Mass. (Oct. 7, 2016) – A third straight year in Bangor, Maine, and a return visit to familiar sites in Vermont and New York are among the highlights as East Coast Snocross (ECS) officials announce their 2017 event schedule.

With only one site yet to be finalized, teams and race fans can begin making their plans for another exciting winter of snocross competition. Details of the tentative season opener on January 7-8, 2017, will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We’ve put together a great group of host sites for what should be a strong season in 2017,” series owner Kurt Gagne said. “Last winter was tough on our industry, yet forecasts call for plenty of snow in 2017. We hope fans will come out to see us live, but if they can’t, we’re happy they can follow the action with Conx2share Live Streaming. It’s going to be a very exciting season for ECS.”

On Saturday and Sunday, January 28-29, the series returns to historic Bass Park in Bangor, Maine, for the third consecutive year. The Queen City serves as an ideal host for sanctioned snocross, with plenty of dining, lodging and entertainment options available to fans, sponsors and team members.

Round three will take place at the annual combination race with ISOC’s ACS National Series on Feb. 3-5, in Salamanca, New York. This site has drawn thousands of fans since ISOC first rolled into town, and 2017 will only see the event grow larger. It is an honor to be part of ISOC’s Eastern visit.

On February 18-19, the series will return to Willow Park in historic Bennington, Vermont. During last year’s snow-starved winter, fans and the entire community in general rallied to support our inaugural race at Willow Park. With some help from Old Man Winter, our second race has big potential.

For Round 5, teams will travel to the familiar confines of Plattsburgh, New York, for two days of high-flying competition on Feb. 24-25 at the Clinton County Fairgrounds. Snocross has received a warm welcome since the series first visited Plattsburgh, and 2017 will deliver more great racing.

On March 4-5, the series will visit the famed Canandaigua Speedway in Elbridge, New York for Round 6. Canandaigua is an ideal venue for snocross racing, with good spectator viewing and ample room for a challenging track. When ECS rolls into the speedway, fans will get a true taste of snocross.

Round 7 will take place on March 18-19 at the beautiful Mt. Southington Ski Resort in Southington, Connecticut. A lack of snow prevented the series from debuting at the mountain last winter, yet hopes are that southern New England will receive somewhere close to their normal snowfall in 2017. This site offers all the amenities and comfort any race fan could desire.

To wrap up the 2017 season, ECS will again return to the friendly confines of the Peek’N Peak Resort in Clymer, New York. This world-class facility is the perfect spot to cap off a hard-fought season on the bumps and jumps. Officials appreciate the long-standing relationship they’re lucky enough to have with Peek ‘N Peak Resort. We look forward to our return visit on March 25-26.

With eight weekends of competition spread across four states, athletes in all classes will face a grueling challenge in the months ahead. Those who train, prepare and work hard to achieve their goals will visit the podium often. ECS officials will continue with preparations for what should be one of the best seasons in recent memory.

The East Coast Snocross Conx2share Series, presented by Woody’s Traction and FXR, is an ISR-affiliated sanctioning body for snowmobile racing in the northeastern United States. ECS maintains a regional circuit intended to keep grass-roots snocross racing healthy in this part of the country, while also cultivating new talent for tomorrow’s factory-backed national Pro teams.
