Indoor vending and concessions below the grandstands are available for fans to warm up while not missing a beat thanks to monitors.

Red River Valley Speedway is best known for its dirt track racing since 1967 (formerly known as Red River Speedway). In 2010, the 1/2 mile dirt track was shortened to 3/8 mile in length. The venue is home to IMCA Modifieds, Stock Cars, SportMods, Hobby Stocks, Legends, and Sprint Car racing, including the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws.

In 2021, Amsoil Championship Snocross made its inaugural visit to the speedway after previously having the Fargo event hosted by Buffalo River Race Park.

Outside of the National event, the Snocross track at Red River Valley Speedway serves as a professional practice and race facility for all ages. These events are organized and promoted by Chad Ohnstad and his team. Since springing into the Snocross scene, Ohnstad (Team Co-Owner, All Finish Racing, and Owner, All Finish Concrete) quickly put plans into action to grow and promote the future of the sport.

Snocross racing in Fargo is commonly known for its below-freezing temperatures. A notable feature of the 2021 course was its elevated start. The average lap time of the Amsoil Pro class that year was 40.069 seconds.

Sophomore Pro rider from Quebec, Francis Pelletier, scored his first career Pro win in round 3. He doubled down with career win #2 the following night at the Theisen’s Snocross National. Pelletier was the championship runner-up in 2021, just one year after winning the Pro-Lite title. In both round 3 and 4 Finals, Pelletier’s speeds and overall performances were unmatched as he won by 4.8 and 12 seconds, respectively. Following round 4, Pelletier had jumped to 3rd in the championship points chase.

The Hentges Racing Polaris Pro riders, Oskar Norum and Kody Kamm, made podium appearances in round 3 (Norum) and 4 (Kamm). Norum was in contention for a round 4 podium before a mechanical in the final lap derailed his hopes. Kamm has been one of the more consistent riders in 2022 with only one finish outside of the top-5 (round 2, 7th). Following his Round 4 run, the 2017 Pro Champion had made his way up t 2nd in the points standings.

Another rider inside the top-5 championship points race is Sweden’s Emil Harr (5th) who has only had one finish outside of the top-5 (Round 4, 13th).

Reigning Pro Champion, Elias Ishoel, swept the All Finish Concrete Snocross National in 2021 with a pair of Amsoil Pro Final wins. After winning the first two rounds of the season, Ishoel finished outside of the top-5 both nights in rounds 3 and 4.

Other Amsoil Pro riders to have earned a podium at the West Fargo venue (2021) are Oskar Norum, Trent Wittwer, Logan Christian, and Kyle Pallin.

A rider who will be notably missing from the All Finish Concrete Snocross National presented by Kost Material is One Three Motorsports Ski-Doo’s Lincoln Lemieux. In round 4, Lemieux was involved in a crash in the Pro LCQ. Lemieux is speculated to return to racing in 2022, though no official plans have been made at this time. Until then, he is on injured reserve and back home in Vermont. Amsoil Championship continues to wish him a speedy recovery.
