You don’t have to spend your entire long holiday weekend avoiding in-laws or other relatives and ingesting turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, turkey soup, turkey surprise and whatever else you can dream up with your Thanksgiving leftovers. Instead, you can spend part of your weekend checking out the new snowmobiles and taking in some great racing action, and you’ll never have to leave the comfort of your own home…
Once again this year, the ISOC Amsoil Championship Series will make available a live webcast of all of its racing action, and snowgosite.wpengine.com can be your home for the action. Just click here to go to the live webcast page.
The folks at ISOC do it right, with professional announcing, many camera angles and a true professional broadcast. During some of the “undercard,” like when the Juniors or Sport classes are running on the bumpy course, the broadcast is more folksy and easy going. During the Pro part of the presentation, however, viewers get the full benefits of top-notch announcing, live interviews with racers who finish on the podium and entertaining banter.
This weekend at the season-opening Duluth snocross, racing starts Friday, Saturday and Sunday at about 8:30 a.m. each day. Simulcasting starts at 1 p.m. Friday and Saturday and in the last morning Sunday. The full simulcast Pro program starts at 5 p.m. Friday, with the Amsoil Dominator one-on-one Pro Open challenge event serving as the primary highlight. Saturday’s Pro program also begins at 5 p.m. and features four big finals: Sport at 6:15 p.m., Pro-Am Plus 30 at 7:30 p.m., Pro Lite at 8:05 and the grand finale Pro Open first final of the year at 8:30 p.m. Intermixed between those finals are heat and LCQ races in those same classes.
Sunday, the Pro program features opening ceremonies at noon, with the highlights include a 120 Champ final at 1:10 p.m., a Pro Am Women final at 2:05 p.m., a Pro Lite final at 2:40 p.m. and the Pro Open final starting at 3:05 p.m.
