This is the 13th year for this charity fundraising event.
Held on West Bay of Little St. Germain Lake, this event has come a long way from the beginning when the races consisted of snowmobiles and a radar gun. Now this two-day event sports a seven-class line up beginning with stock sleds all the way up to the Super Mod class which is a specialty class allowing for unlimited cc’s, full body, custom body and propelled by gas, nitro or turbo.
Friday afternoon, the Fly Racing Speed Runs will be held on the Thunderbird 1000’ of shaved ice or on the Twilight 600’ of groomed snow. Races start at 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM.
That evening, is Timber’s Bar and Grill, “Friday Night Under the Lights”. Weber’s Wildlife Gas Pump will sponsor a Shoot Out snowmobile ride leaving at 3:00 PM. All snowmobilers are invited to take part in Weber’s Wildlife Shoot Out drag races scheduled from 5:00-8:00 PM for $5 a run.

Music will fill the air as snowmobilers shop the snowmobile vendors and warm themselves in the heated tent with food served by the Bo-Boen Snowmobile Club from 12:00 – 8:00 PM.

Beginning at 1 PM, the wildly popular Knockers Pizza Co. Bikini Runs, featuring Divas SnowGear, will hit the 660’ groomed track with dozens of gorgeous gals in dazzling, goose bump-raising bikinis. This year there will be three categories of winners. The overall category combines fundraising and speed for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. The next set is for the fastest speeds and will award 1st through 3rd place. This year a new category has been added – for those who exceed 100 MPH and there will be awards for 1st through 3rd place.
