Got up to a balmy 12 degrees with a nice stiff breeze, great day to go stand out in the biggest field around and watch the races.  The local snow mobile club, Lisbon Stump Jumpers,  has put on these races for vintage snow machines for 7-8 years now, gotten to be quite a popular sport in this area.  My wife volunteers in the cook shack and I spent some time track side and in the "pits"  Several different classes, and for most, the sleds can not be newer than 1973.  For many this is a serious sport and for a couple of the top classes there is prize $$ to be won.

Boy, those old sleds bring back a lot of good memories for me when I lived up in IN. and we actually got a lot of snow every winter.

We don't get to see those oval track races hardly anymore. Use to be every winter carnival

had them, but the insurance premiums put an end to that.

 

Thanks for the pics.

I see at least one "2 lunger" there.   :D   Never drove a snowmobile, or even been near one for that matter.  Not much call for them down here.
