The NSSR “Fire on Ice” Snosuit Super Series proved to be Hot again as a new Top Speed World Record was set at 170.078 mph by Glen Hall on the Henricks Racing ProLine D&D 1200 Turbo Sled.
In the competition was “Fast Eddy” Ensor from Illinois on the Busa Mod and the Marv Jorgenson Jaws1 sled driven by Darrin Weber. “Fast Eddy” was creeping up on the 170 mph record with a pass of 167.117 mph when he encountered mechanical problems and was done early in the day. Jaws1 sled made some great passes with a top speed of 160.893 mph while fighting a coolant leak which hindered performance of this great sled.
It was a fantastic day at Menomonie, Wisconsin with sunshine and the temperatures approaching 40 degrees Fahrenheit. NSSR experienced 80 entries on the Professional Track Side with 310 passes and over 50 entries on the Fun Run Track over 300 passes. The quartering head wind from the Southwest held speeds down on most of the classes. Despite the headwind, sixteen of the entries still managed to exceed the 130 mph mark and of those, eight were over the 150 mph mark.
The addition, the Vintage and Pro Mod classes for the World Record Series proved to be exciting with Rick Bolduc posting three new records on the SRX Yamahas and Jack Hendricks posting a 161.194 mph pass on his new ProLine/D&D Turbo Pro Mod. In all, NSSR saw eight new records!
Turbos are here to stay and show that if you want power, just turn up the boost! Jeff Simons’ full body CPR Yamaha Turbos were there to break the World Records in the Pro Stock and Improved Four Stroke Classes. Jeff Simons’ CPR Turbo with Driver Tim Steinke rocked a new record at 163.636 mph and Shanon Disch on his 2004 Warrior Improved Stock Turbo went an amazing 154.838 mph to set a new record. Who would imagine that full body snowmobiles would ever go into the 160 mph range?
NSSR’s next 1000 foot World Record Speed Run is scheduled for Saturday February 14th at Forest Lake Minnesota.
