12-13: Gonvick, MN. Each season teams from all over the Midwest and even Canada travel to this little town in Northern Minnesota to race against the best in the business. The notorious Pine Lake season opener is a race all cross-country competitors want to add to their win list. The competition is fearless with sleds reaching speeds over 100 mph.
23-24: Park Rapids, MN. The Heartland 200 in Park Rapids, Minnesota will return for the 20/21 season. The race course is typically 120 miles full of wooded trails and ditches making it a very technical course. The Park Rapids course is significantly different than any other course on the circuit. It takes intensive concentration to run at speed for 250 miles on a course like this with no room for mistakes. Racers with woods riding experience seem to excel on this course. Racers of all ages and skill will be competing from Juniors to Pro Stock to Vintage classes.
13-14: Thief River Falls, MN. On every terrain racer’s bucket list, the I-500 is an iconic race trail riders often dream of completing. Sled reliability and durability has a lot with succession in this race as the high speeds for 500 miles can put a lifetime of wear and tear on any snowmobile. For 95% of all entrants it’s about finishing the race not just winning it.
The Goodridge-Grygla 500 takes place over two days covering 500 miles filled with the same rough ditches, deep holes, rivers, woods and fields. The 500 continues to thrive thanks to the support of sponsors, former racers, snowmobile club members, and volunteer enthusiasts from the Goodridge-Grygla area.
27-28: Warroad, MN. Run on the, the Warroad course is routed over the lake and banks of Lake of the Woods. This varied terrain, makes it a challenge for riders of all levels. The Warroad event is a favorite amongst many riders as it is usually warm and snow conditions are typically really good.
6-7: Naytahwaush, MN. The Naytahwaush event has been a big hit on the series for many years. With a vast expanse of terrain and lake available for our course crew, it brings yet another challenge to racers and their crews. In past years, warmer weather has forced the race to primarily compete on the lake, if that happens, the course will not be plowed.
27-28: Bessemer, MI. Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort will be hosting the Cor PowerSports series including Hillclimb and Hillcross on Saturday, and then utilizing the entire facility for Cross Country on Saturday. Big Powderhorn has incredible spectator viewing and the substantial lake effect snow makes for one of Cor Powersports best events in Michigan.
