Another race bites the dust due to lack of cold weather. Whittemore has cancelled their 1st race for February 22. We are shooting for next year.

    Rick, look to BEVRA racing Feb 22, fastest sleds in the state run at the Lakeview track. If you win at a BEVRA event your most likely a fast cat in the world of vintage sleds.

    I raced there before. It was ok but too far for us old racers. Me and my race partner are working with the Whittemore Chamber of Commerce to put on a race this year. Too bad the weather isn't cooperating.

    Looks like another nice racing season in Michigan for Winter 2020-2021.  Lucky Thumb and Big Bend just released their dates.

    Hoping the long range weather forecast is true. We are going to try again this winter.

    No. Being our first race we are just going to have only one. I'm working with the Chamber helping them get their feet wet. Maybe in the future we will have a second race.
