AMSOIL World Championship Snowmobile Derby« Back to Events
Since 1964, Eagle River has hosted the AMSOIL World Championship Snowmobile Derby; it’s the Indy 500 of the snowmobiling world. Hundreds of snowmobilers from juniors in boys and girls categories to the best competitors in the world compete in snocross and ice oval racing, grabbing huge air and hitting speeds of 100mph on the straightaways!
Plenty of action takes place each day Thursday, January 19 through Sunday, January 22, when the World Derby Championship starts at 3pm. Enjoy the action up close by the track or warm up in the Expo Hall, where you can shop for great stuff, imbibe on hot food and cold beer, or watch the action on TVs in the upstairs bar. Heated skyboxes are also available.
The Derby Track is on the north side of Eagle River, right along U.S. 45 and Highways 17 and 32. Highway 70 is just to the south in the downtown area. It’s definitely one of the winter highlights of the year!
