“Snocross is a one of a kind racing sport with specialized high-performance snowmobiles,” according to AMSOIL. “Snocross races are held on natural or man-made tracks and is the most popular form of snowmobile racing in the world.”
Racers of all ages come from around the world to compete in a race on different types of snowmobiles. This year, there are snowmobiles and snowbikes from Polaris, Ski-Doo, Arctic Cat, MFG and Lima.
