Snowmobile Drag Races


Last week, Lake Potanipo in our little town hosted an ice fishing derby and today it was the North Stream Nationals Drag Racing competition. It’s just like car drag racing but done on ice with snowmobiles. As you can see these “sleds” are fast and there was every imaginable type of vehicle out there. There was a good-sized crowd to enjoy the fun.

    Wow…great photos! Yeah, the 1st one is so fast. πŸ™‚

    When I grew up in upstate New York in the 1970s my brother + I had a snowmobile that we’d take with the local snowmobiling club. An adult highlight for me was going with The Southern Oregon Snowmobiling Club on a outing 10 years ago in the majestic mountains here in Oregon.

    Very cool pictures, Chris! πŸ˜‰ And I mean that quite literally! πŸ˜‚ It’s amazing how many things and people can go on the ice without it breaking. I’d always feel a little stressed standing there I guess because around here the ice is always much thinner on the lakes, no speed racing there!
