CMSA will be coming to McGregor Mn on February 3rd.

The fastest speed run racers on the planet will come togather in McGregor Mn to push the limits to see who has the fastest sled for their respective classes. With speeds expected to exceed 170mph, the excitement level is sure to be HIGH.

With the big guns doing their homework over the summer, the speeds are sure to be higher than ever. Marv has invested in more gear hoping to push him over the 170MPH mark. Kurt Mohawk is rumored to have added a few hundred cc's and with nitrous could better his own speed of 168.750mph that already has him labeled as the Fastest single engine sled in the World in 1000'. That number looks to be increasing this year.

Then there is Outlaw Racing that has been taking notes from Kurt over the last couple years. He has added nitrous and with a huge tripple under the hood, is looking to be right in the pack with Kurt and Marv. He expects to be in the 160's without a problem.

There is also quite a few new sleds on the market this year. It will be exciting to see how they stackup against tried and true machines.

This event is open to all racers and trail machines alike. There will be two tracks, a PRO lane and a fun run trail lane.

For the fun run lane, the price is $5.00 per run or $40.00 for an all day (unlimited) pass. CMSA membership NOT required.

For more info contact Nathan @ 320-282-6717 or 320-310-4248 or [email protected]

Hope to see you there.

I'm not 100% positive on this and it doesnt even mention location on the CMSA site, but...I believe it will be held on Big Sandy Lake.

The race is sponsored by Eagle Point Lounge 218-426-4257. Search Google for a map. Unless things have changed, CMSA asks racers to become members to run in the "pro" classes. I believe that there is a "fun run" (radar run) offered also at a "pay per run" fee. The CMSA tracks have ALWAYS been smooth with a long shut down area, Nate does a nice job.

The "fun run" costs $5 a run, or 5 runs for $20, or $40 for an all day pass.....as many runs as you can make. Thats what it was 2 years ago anyway. I'll be at the Forest Lake event again this year if I'm home that weekend. I just hope it's colder this time!

Even if you don't run your sled it's worth the show to watch these guys haul.

Tom, are you going to McGregor?

Got to be in North Dakota for work. I haven't really even looked at the sled this year. Glad to have a job. But you never know, might get done early and drop in to watch.

Well after two 16 hour days (and nignts) to get back to Mpls and an "all nighter" on Friday, we did make it to McGregor. When we pulled on the lake it was -19 degrees below zero. The wind was blowing between 15-20 mph. About half of the "regular" CMSA members were there but Nate and crew put on the show anyway. The track was in very good condition with some what of a tail wind, I thought a big speed would be easy, was WAY WRONG! It was so cold that some sleds didn't start from what I saw. Our prostock sled didn't want to run either, had to keep starting it on pump gas to get enough heat in the cylinders to burn the race fuel. The sled ran a 141.8 mph. Marv's sled ran the top speed for the day at 151 something.
On a day like that, we owe a lot of credit to the CMSA folks to stand out there all day!

Reminds me of the 1996 I.S.R. World Series on Ice the first weekend in Feb at Arbor Vitae, Wi. We froze our BALZ off for 2.5 days out on that lake. I never shut the truck off from when I left Illinois on friday morning till I got back home monday afternoon. Sunday morning at 5:30 a.m. the weather channel was showing -47*f actual temp.

The 440 speeds amaze me. They are smoking a lot of sleds with much bigger motors! Whats really noticeable about the 440's is they are all Doo's. Cripes, those things haul ass. I guess I'm going to have to get a 02 MXZX 440 next. We'll see what happens at the Forest Lake event in a few weeks, I saw some fairly fast Cat 440's there a couple years ago, but nothing over 93-94 mph that I recall. Thats WAY off the speeds of these Rotax 440's. Look at the speeds of the Pro Stock 800's. I hope those are misprint!!

Cat had decent results in the stock classes with Firecats it seems.

You need 2 more mph to be king. I think current CMSA record is close to 104 mph. Squeeze a couple more out of it and come to Forest Lake on the 24th and take it away from Bray.

timing lights are used and the f6 class Participants in the stock classes must weigh 175lbs including the protective gear. If the participant does not meet the weight requirements, they must add ballast to the sled. The ballast must be securely fastened by means of a grade (5) -5/16” bolt with a self locking nut. (no wing nuts)
Adding fuel to the tank will be allowed as ballast. If fuel does not make up the weight deficiency, additional ballast must be securely fastened to the machine.
Optional marginal snow wheels can be considered as ballast.
The snowmobile must meet the weight as filed by the manufacturer.
Eighteen pounds will be added to the snowmobile weight (as filed by the manufacturer) for fuel and studs.
PORK CHOP RULE - Racers weighing in excess of 200lbs fully suited with helmet may incorporate a mod fuel tank. Stock fuel tank must remain in place. Mod tank must be located inside the stock tank and be accessible to tech officials at all times for fuel testing.
