Summer is the time for Watercross Racing!

To most people, the sound of birds chirping, the warmth of the sun and clouds drifting by signifies the start of summer and an ideal day outdoors. For those of us who can't get enough snowmobiling throughtout the entire year, our ideal summer day includes the sun, but then takes a drastic turn at the sound part. The crackle of tuner pipes and open exhaust as competitors scream across the lake is the sweetest sound during the long summer days and we wouldn't want it any other way. If you haven't checked out the crazy and awesome sport of watercross [...]

As the season end approaches, some classes are tight with only a few points separating the top [...]
