Pro Stock Snowmobile 2012 Division 3 Schedule Announced & Includes Race During the Burndown at Sundown!
The North Central Division will once again feature Pro Stock Snowmobiles at selected 2012 events. Pro Stock Snowmobile racing made its North Central debut in 2005 with a series of events established the following year that qualified racers for an exhibition staged during the Brainerd national event. The four-race 2012 schedule will include the Burndown at Sundown at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill., June 8-10.
