Ironwood made snow throughout the past weekend and they informed us they will have SEVEN snow guns starting tonight and running all the way up to the coming event. We should have some good snow!
GNSS will go with transponders this year, It's official, we are taking the Great Northern Snocross Series to the next level in 2017 with electronic transponder scoring. We will be using the same system they use at the ISOC Nationals. If you don't own a transponder we will have up to 40 of them to rent on race weekends. Please spread the word!!
We will have a link to purchase of transponders. Purchase price is $95. If they have one for Isoc nationals it will work for gnss. If they do not want to purchase they can also rent one for $25 per event. We will place a bulk order and have them ready for ironwood.

120 classes: What you used to know as our STOCK 120 classes have been renamed Improved Stock. We now have one stock class which means bone STOCK – no modifications allowed including gearing. This class is meant for first time racers as in introduction to snocross.
Two season long promotions meant to help us build snocross in Wisconsin:
Bring a first time Trail Stock rider/entrant with you to the races and receive a $25 coupon toward a race of your choice – this promotion is good for the entire season.
Also, first time 120 racers new to the GNSS will get a buy the first class and get the 2nd class for FREE – again, valid at all events this year.
You must run 75% of the scheduled races (6 of 8) in order to qualify for year end points/awards and the Showdown at Lake Geneva. There are NOT any throw out races for our series. You must make 6 of 8 events in order to be ELIGIBLE for the showdown or year end points. That does NOT mean you throw two races out. Example: You win every heat and main event you compete in but only attend 5 of 8 races which lands u in the top three in points. Result: you do NOT get to attend the showdown or receive series awards because you did not compete in the minimum number of events (6). If you make all 8 events, then all 8 of them count towards points, if you only make 6 or 7 events then those 6-7 events count towards points. If you only make 5 events you will not be figured into the year end points.We do hope this clears a few things up.

In the days leading up to the event I am very difficult to contact since I am generally on-site preparing for the event. I do NOT have access to email on the Thursday or Friday prior to the event. Please plan ahead with your question and contact me early.
ALL racers and crew wishing to enter the staging area (Hot Pits) must have an ISR membership in order to compete in 2015. This is what allows GNSS to eliminate the per class “Insurance” charge from past years. Please sign up at Insurance. Print your receipt or email confirmation and carry it with you until your hard card arrives in the mail. One day USAC memberships are available at the track only for $25.
Anyone/Everyone can race in our Trail class!
Snowmobile must be 800cc or less: Riders under 18 are limited to a 600cc max sled.
Rider must be a minimum of 14 years of age. If under 18 you must be accompanied by BOTH parents or one parent and a written/notarized consent form from the other parent.
Snowmobile cannot be a “snocross” produced sled. Snocross replica sleds manufactured for trail use are fine. But a snocross sled converted to a trail sled is not
Racers must have a Tech vest or an EVS snocross vest. We borrow them to racers at NO charge but a license or credit card must be left with our race day office
