Well, what a day. First off, it was a hard time getting there, whiteout conditions at times, but we made it. Went to get tickets, watched some hotlaps. Then we went to Best Buy, and I met Polaris-Man for the first time in my life. That was kinda neat. We went to the Alerus Center, then I met up with him there and talked for about 45 mins. The weather kept getting worse, the roads were closed down. We didn't have a hotel, but Polaris-Man did, so me and my friends had to stay at my frineds uncles house and they were out of town. So, after the races, we went and ate at Perkins, this was about 1:00 in the morning when everything was situated. Ok, the race...It was neat. Morgan won it, but Tucker was in the lead for quite some time in one race, then got passed. AC, well, they did ok, Ski-Doo seemed dominant, and Polaris, they were never really first, but not last either. They were always in the top bunch and they kicked everyone on the modifieds I think. Anyways, Polaris-Man can add more to this if he wants, I need to go work on my sled!!
What Erick said pretty much sums it up. The Polaris modded sleds just whooped all the other ones. I was fired up.
Doo seemed to have the best standings overall, A/C was doing ok, not nearly as good as everyone makes them seem. Polaris seemed to get a lot of 2nds and 3rds, Doo was usually first or second, some cats got first, but mostly 2nd or 3rd, when they were in the standings anyway.
Out of the bunch it was Doo and Polaris at the top. I found it pretty funny when the all-amazing Tucker went off the track during the pro mod class, but lots of A/C fans didn't.
The weather was horrible for our drive down, and like Erick said, we couldn't go home. When we got to our hotel, we ordered a pizza, around 11:40 and we didn't get it until about 12:50. This morning it was all good though.
Today I've built myself a jump out in the yard with tractor and my buddy went off it a few times on his XC 500 SP but we didn't get too far with it, I'm gonna go work on it some more after supper, then go off it a few times with my XCR, then tomorrow probably work on it some more, we don't have enough snow to make a track, so we are gonna try and make a huge jump, once we get everything straightened out, I'll post some pictures.
Ya them races were awesome last night. It was just gettin there, hard to see and everything. Watched the races, then when they said the roads were closed, we didn't believe it, so we took off down the road and made it home 2 and half hours later, And thats normally howe long it takes to get there so we made good time. But that was awesome to see them polaris mods kickin A$$. Then to watch blair pass tucker on them mogos, i didn't want that to happen, i was bumed then. But anyway, it was fun to watch them races, first snocross i been to, so i thought it was great. Then to watch that Braaap Pack. That was pretty good to. Hope every body who went had fun!
you guys need to post some pics of the races...im so deprived i didnt get to go. i miss the sounds of the straight piped modded up sleds and the huge ass jumps, and the stunt guys that look like they are gonna go through the roof....damn......im jealous
Does anybody here race the XCR 600/700 aggressive chasis sleds? I'm rebuilding my 97 XCR600SE for racing and I'm looking for ideas. I found this site www3.telus.net/maxceleration/home and the sleds they run (416, 417) have the windsheild I'm intersted in for my sled. My email is messed up so I...
I have a 98 700/920 PSI Genesis, what can I do to make that thing rip out of the corners like a raped app and what can I do to make it stand straight up and do cat walks? What kind of Gearing set ups and clutching do you guys have? Does anyone know about these 10al weights, blue and silver...

Im looking into converting my ice sled into a asphalt drag sled. Does anyone know of a set of rules I could get ahold of to insure a legal build? Im using my 92 Polaris 650 and any useful suggestions or ideas would be much appreciated.
Has anyone ever attended Amsoil Snocross at Canterbury Park in Minnesota? This is the first time I am going and am wondering how seating is there? Where can you see the most track? Is it better to pay the few extra bucks for the indoor seats or can you see better track-side? :confused:
