Race Into Winter Grass Drags and Watercross official kick-start to the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association’s season has once again proven to be an exciting mix of racing, freestyle shows, food, and great deals on sleds and apparel. It has become a tradition here in New Hampshire for many to attend this Columbus Day weekend event. There is a lot to take in!
Racers competed on grass and water all three days, with amateur grass racing on Friday night. The fastest speed recorded for the weekend was 115.56 mph on an Arctic Cat 1100 turbo.
Eastern Watercross Association holds their final race of the season here, with amateur, semi pro, and pro racers all taking to the pond to see where they will finish in the overall points.
NELMRA brought their final race of 2017 back to Fremont. These are not your average lawnmowers!
Our kid zone is a big hit, especially the free 120 track, as the little ones throttle their way around the hay bales. The smiles on their faces tell it all.
The freestyle skills of Rave X crew was once again a crowd pleaser-their stunts are well thought out and practiced, and should not be tried at home!
Manufacturer’s Row Crowded
Tents were brimming with great deals on sleds, clothing, and accessories from dealers here in New Hampshire and across the country. Manufacturer’s row was crowded all weekend as people caught sight of what the big-4 had to offer this season. Food vendors were well stocked and busy from opening until the last spectator left.
The weather is always an important factor, and the warm October days welcomed thousands to Peterson’s Brookvale Farm. A little rain on Sunday proved no match for the crowds, as shown by the 41,900 in attendance!
