Based on fantasy sports games common in football, baseball or NASCAR, players in the Snowmobile Racing Challenge select how they think racers will finish in a high-profile, upcoming snowmobile race, using a drop down menu with all of the racers names. Players then get points based on how those racers actually finish the race.
There will be weekly winners for bragging right and occasional gifts from Snow Goer, plus year-end champions in the snocross, oval sprint racing and cross-country brackets that will get prize packages from sponsor Amsoil, including the company’s Interceptor Synthetic oil and some Amsoil swag.
The snocross round kicks off immediately, with selections for the ISOC Amsoil Duluth National on Thanksgiving weekend. Players will select their “team” for the Sunday, November 30, Pro Open final.
Then, over the course of the season, there will be rounds for the following snocross races:
- Duluth, Minnesota, on Nov. 30
- Fargo, North Dakota, Dec. 13
- Shakopee, Minnesota, on Jan. 10
- X Games Aspen on approximately Jan. 23 (awaiting final schedule from ESPN)
- Deadwood, South Dakota, on Jan. 31
- Salamanca, New York, on Feb. 7
- Chicago, Illinois on Feb. 21
- Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, on Feb. 28
- Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, on March 15
