Welcome To World Championship Day

Today marks the 46th running of the Eagle River World Championship Snowmobile Derby, and by 4 p.m. today a World Champion will be crowned. That racer will have his named engraved on the inaugural Snow Goer Racing Cup, along with the names of the 45 previous winners. As the World’s no. 1 snowmobile magazine, snowgoerracing.com is THE source for snowmobile racing news and results. This weekend, the Snow Goer crew has been on the infield, throughout the pits and inside the race trailers, talking to racers, race directors, crew members and race track officials. That’s how we get the inside scoop on all the action – here, and at every race we cover through the fall and winter racing seasons. The Snow Goer Racing Tip Sheet tells you who has qualified for the final in three different classes. It combines the input of our expert crew and our fictional “odds” that you can’t get anywhere else.

Brian Bewcyk, #39   Ski-Doo     Pole sitter also set the fastest qualifying lap Thursday. Fast.        2-1

Gary Moyle, #66      Ski-Doo     Changed his setup for more Saturday speed. It worked.               3-1

Dan Fenhaus, #10   Arctic Cat   Put down the fastest laps on Saturday. Legit shot at the title.      3-1

PJ Wanderschied, #28    Arctic Cat  A favorite this weekend but ran 2nd behind Moyle twice.        4-1

Dustin Wahl, #74    Polaris        Smart driver. Nobody better at working through the pack.            4-1

Joey Fjerstad, #16  Polaris        Looked good in the semis but still an underdog.                           6-1

Brandon Johnson, #22  Polaris  Good equipment, but does he have the drive?                              8-1

Cardell Potter, #58   Ski-Doo  One of the youngest WC Champ drivers ever. Will youth prevail?  10-1

Nick VanStrydonk, #13   Polaris    Held his own in the semis, but advanced from third.               12-1
