It’s finally here: The kickoff to the snowmobile snocross racing season might be five weeks later than normal, but the national ISOC Amsoil Championship Series is off and running, and with it, Snow Goer is bringing back its fantasy Snowmobile Racing Challenge game again this season, applying fantasy sports to snocross racing results.
The ISOC circuit will run eight weekends of racing, and with it we’ll have eight rounds of the Snowmobile Racing Challenge, in which participants earn point for predicting the final results of the last Pro class race of the weekend. The game is designed to be very easy to understand, and it’s free to play, and players can participate in a single week or collect points during the whole season.
Here’s How To Play
For each race event, players predict the top six in the finishing order in the final Pro final in snocross. Those selections are made using pull-down windows that include the names of all expected participants at the event — so you don’t even have to be a racing expert to play. If a fantasy player nails a driver to the position they actually finish, the player will get 20 points for that driver. If, however, they are one position off, the player gets 15 points for that driver, 14 if they finish two positions off, 13 point if three positions off, etc. Points are only earned for drivers who finish in the top six.
At the end of the weekend, points are tallied and the standings are updated. Then players can make their picks for the following event.
The Snocross game will be based off of results from the last Pro final of any given weekend on the ISOC Amsoil Championship Snocross series — which is available to watch online every race weekend. Picks must be made by a deadline that will be set each weekend, and once picks are made they are locked in.
Points races in our fantasy game will be:
- Jan. 9, Elk River, Minnesota
- Jan. 16, Dubuque, Iowa
- Jan. 30, Deadwood, South Dakota
- Feb. 6, Fargo, North Dakota
- Feb. 20, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
- Mar. 6, Shakopee, Minnesota
- March 21, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
- March 27, Grand Rapids, Michigan
Last season, the Snocross title was claimed by Russell Miller, who had previously also won in 2017. He collected 442 points in the COVID-shortened six round game and won in dominating fashion, with Tom Luoma (402 points) barely holding off Paul Kahtava (399 points) for the second step on the podium.
