Pro Mod, Pro Stock and Outlaw Snowmobiles Share Track with Bracket Motorcycles~ A star-studded lineup of snowmobile racers confined for too long by the COVID-19 outbreak descends on US 131 Motorsports Park this weekend for the 31st annual Super Sled Shootout and Bike Mania.
“Monster Mike” Schultz of St. Cloud, MN, and Scotty Hagen of Oxford, who won last year’s Pro Stock races, are expected to return to face multiple-time NHRA Pro Stock Snowmobile Series winner and past US 131 champion Glenn Hall of Gordon, WI, second generation pro Edwin Wirbel of Midland, Ron Bray of Anoka, MN and three-time former Super Sled winner Tina Duncanson of Acton, Ontario, among others.
Hagen, Hall and Wirbel also are expected to contest the Pro Modified championship along with Jeremy Hannen of Durand, Duncanson’s son-in-law. Among those likely to contest the two Outlaw races are defending champ Chris Homrich of Royal Oak, 2014 champ Cody Levasseur of North Bay, Ontario and 2018 runner-up Nic Cash of Pinkney.
The snowmobiles again will share the stage with motorcycles which will compete in honor of the late Tim Mills, former IDBA World Finals-winning rider, promoter and creator of the original Dash for Cash motorcycle series at Muncie, IN. A special new event this year will be the Bellman Oil Sled/Bike bracket shootout that sends the sleds of stars like Butch Veltum of Wilmot, WI, and Jeff Jawuish of Racine, WI, against Michigan’s quickest and fastest motorcycles at the eighth mile distance.
Weekend admission is $40 or $15 per day. Tickets for children 6-12 are $5 with children under six free when accompanied by a ticketed adult. Free parking and a pit pass are included with each ticket.
The Super Sled weekend begins Friday with a test-and-tune from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday’s schedule includes the Bracket #1 Challenge for snowmobiles paying $1,500 to win, a Pro Modified event with a $2,000 winner’s share and a $1,000-to-win Pro Stock race.
On Sunday, Pro Stock racers will run for a $1,000 top prize, bracket racers for $1,500 and Pro Mod riders for $1,500. Payout for the Saturday and Sunday Outlaw features contested at the eighth-mile distance will be determined by number of entries with 80 per cent of entry fees paid into the purse.
