Snowmobile races provide thrills for spectators

Email News Alerts

A thrill a second is taking place today in Hubbard County.

Dozens of daredevil snowmobile racers are headed up and down County Road 4 at speeds you shouldn't even try at home.

Saturday racers were humming along Long and Peysenske lakes at 100 mph.

On the groomed trail to Emmaville and beyond, speeds reached 50-70 mph as sleds careened through on one ski.

There have been no reportable accidents so far, but plenty of stiff and sore riders.
