What started as a smallish schedule for the USSA ProStar Series and related ProStar Cup has built into a rather full lineup for this coming winter after several big moves by the host circuit.
The historic USSA circuit that has long been the most prominent circuit in snowmobile oval sprint racing found middle ground with the famed Eagle River facility, stepped up to self-promote/host the event in Wausau, Wisconsin, and now has added yet another stop in Canada to its big Cup points series. It’s going to be a busy winter.
For the uninitiated, the USSA ProStar Series is the “regular” circuit that runs a wide variety of classes at events sanctioned by the USSA circuit. Most are in Wisconsin with one run across the U.P. border.
The ProStar Cup series in a North American points series that’s focused on a couple of classes and includes USSA events as well as events hosted by other circuits. It’s where North American championships are earned. Let’s look at the latest schedules:
