The AMSOIL Duluth National is using snowmaking equipment at Spirit Mountain for the start of this year’s WPSA Snocross tour and while early cold temperatures have been less than favorable the 2007-2008 tour starts this Friday. The snowmaking will continue right up to race time on Friday Morning.
The Friday racing is scheduled to start at 3:00 P.M. rather than of 9:30 AM. This change is to ensure time to prepare the best track possible for the racers and spectator viewing. Friday’s fireworks show is still scheduled for 6:00 PM
