Membership 2018

GNSS Racing News

Well the warm weather is finally going to come to an end this week and we know that will kick our snocross racers adrenalin into overdrive.  We have a number of important things to share with you in regards to the coming season. Brad Lind has been our groomer/track builder almost since we started the series 10 plus years ago.  Brad has taken his business a different direction for 2018 so we will have a new operator.  The great news is that the new operator is a former racer that understands snocross and the demands on the racers and their machines.  Jake Buttles is a former Sport and Pro Lite racer and is now a father of a couple of little 120 racers.   Jake understands the need to make sure the tracks are nice and loose to start the race day so he/we will be making a very big effort this season to groom early in the morning and rip and tear up landings and corners before we begin each race day.  As a result, tracks may not appear completed the night before an event, we will likely form up the take off ramps; but landings, rollers and corners will all be left in piles until race morning so the snow does not set up and freeze overnight. Transponders - We will once again be using transponders in 2018 but hand scoring will be our primary method since it’s what we know best.  As you know we struggled to get the transponder system working to its potential last year.  Our schedule currently stands at 7 races over 4 weekends.  Last year we had 8 races over 6 weekends.   As of this newsletter our schedule is as follows:

  • Hayward – January 13-14
    Plymouth – January 27-28 (the 28th will be the Battle of Wisconsin ISR Snocross State Championships
    Digger Doug’s – February 3-4 (Moved from Weyauwega, Wega has elected to eliminate snocross for 2018)
    Westby – February 17th with banquet to follow.

If you are looking for more events there are plenty outside of our GNSS series, you have three more “Midwest  ISOC Nationals in Shakopee, Iowa and Geneva.  There is also a grass roots event in Ironwood in December and the World Championships at Eagle River the third weekend in January. 

I will be out of the office for the better part of this week so please don’t panic if you don’t get a response from me if you send or post questions.

Thanks,
Scott

Trail Class

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. 

 

Points/Showdown Clarification:

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.

E-Mail 
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.
