The Battle of Wisconsin ISR Snocross State Championships scheduled at the St. Croix Casino in Turtle Lake on January 13th-14th is being postponed to February 3rd and 4th . Snowfall has been very light in the Northwest corner of Wisconsin this winter and todays weather isn’t enough to supply the series with enough snow to build a safe and suitable track. Organizers are working diligently to put together a snow making plan that can supplement the snowfall mother nature gives us between now and then. We do understand this falls on the New York National weekend but it is the best option for both the series, and our host, the St. Croix Casino, in Turtle Lake.
The weekend will actually kick off with a Friday night, under the lights warm-up race. Gates and registration will be open at noon on Friday the Feb 3th. Registration and checkin from 12:30 to 2:30 PM with practice slated to start at 3 PM. Saturday will be the true State Championship event with 27 classes, whoops 28 classes - we will have a "SNOWBIKE" class both Friday and Saturday (spread the word) as well as a TRAIL class for those wanting to give snocross a shot. If you haven't attended a GNSS race yet, this might be the one for you. It is right at the St. Croix Casino in Turtle Lake, WI.
Saturday's Pro Am and Pro 15 + will feature a combined ADDDED purse of $1500 above and beyond normal series payout.
If you already made hotel reservations please remember to call to reschedule. If you already entered for the race your entry will automatically carry over to the February 3-4 date change.
All times will remain the same for the Friday-Saturday event, only the dates will change.
POSTPONED from January 13-14 To Feb 3-4 2017
Remaining 2017 GNSS Schedule
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.
