Press Release –
With ground breaking and track creation nearing completion on the recently announced Extreme Motor Park (ERX) near Elk River, Minnesota, and cold temperatures in place, snowmaking has commenced with help from the newest ERX partner – Cummins Power Generation.
The power needs for air compressors, water pumps and fans guns, along with facility lighting are enormous; especially when snowmaking needs require immediate in-demand power for extended periods of time.
But thanks to Cummins Power Generation, an industry leader in power generation for over 80 years, those demands have been met with the best power solution available and the ERX track is currently being transformed into a world-class snocross track.
“Cummins has a tremendous amount of expertise in this area,” said Tom Smith, Sales Manager for Cummins Power in the Midwest. “We supply power for several world renowned ski-resorts throughout the world for their snow making efforts. We understand the tremendous power needs required for these types of applications and we know the power has to be there at a moments notice. When it comes to making snow you have to be ready when Mother Nature decides.”
But making snow is only part of the equation for Cummins Power according to Smith. “We (Cummins Power) are excited to be associated with a first rate motorsports facility like ERX. But aside from the passion for racing many of us share at Cummins, it’s refreshing to partner with a team such as ERX that has such strong family and community values. It’s a reflection of the same values Cummins Power and its employees share so it’s a great fit.”
Located on the outskirts of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area in the city of Elk River, ERX is a professionally designed and staffed year-round motorsports facility.
The park will feature racing, open practice, club events, demos and more for snowmobiles, motorcycles, ATVs and UTVs year-round.
More importantly ERX will focus on grass roots racing, giving first timers and recreational riders a chance to experience and enjoy their preferred motorsports hobby with an emphasis on family fun In addition to providing power for snow making equipment, Cummins Power will also be the driving force during events, powering lighting equipment, vendor tents, public address systems and more.
Six events are currently slated for ERX this winter, with more on-deck as well as a summer schedule to be announced later this winter. ERX will also be available for private uses such as factory team testing, special dealer demo events, test rides, training and safety classes, swap meets, club functions and more.
