This marks the third straight year that the Plymouth Snow Rangers will be hosting the event at their facility. The park is located at State 57 and County C, just east of Fleet Farm in Plymouth.

Hot laps for all classes will start at 8:30 a.m. on both days, followed by two rounds of heat races and then the finals which are slated for about 1 p.m. The finals are expected to be completed before dark each day.

“I expect another strong field. It [event] will be a fan favorite with a lot of high-flying action and a lot of big jumps,” said Dan Schmitz, the event co-chairperson with Tim McMullen.

“All of the snow for the course has been hauled in. We’re in good shape and ready to go,” Schmitz said.

The course will be constructed on Friday.

“We’re always excited about this event and happy to be bringing the event to the Plymouth area,” Schmitz said.

The Race of Champions is a regional event for the Greater Northern Sno-X Series. The GNSS is in charge of constructing the course.

The event will feature the annual Adam Muesegades Memorial races on both days. A vintage sled race and youth races will also be part of the event’s program.

Plymouth Community TV-14 will stream all of the races live.

Brats and hamburgers will be available along with a warm, heated concession building for spectators. A big-screen TV will be in the building for fans to watch the races.
