Martin, Mich. – The sleds were as hot as the weather at the 27th Annual AmSnow
/ Aeroquip Super Sled Shootout in Martin, Mich. It was 80 degrees in the shade all weekend at US 131 Motorsports Park, and the racers were hot to trot as well. The fastest action anywhere is on this track, and on this weekend every year ... and there’s a new world record to prove it!
It didn’t take long for big passes to be laid down on the quarter-mile track. Friday night’s test-and-tune session gave way to Outlaw grudge matches with a cool thousand bucks wagered between racers challenging each other in a heads-up 660-foot dash for cash. This was old school sled racing, heads up and winner take all.
With that, the tone was set for the weekend. Racers’ heads hit their pillows with visions of standing in the Winner’s Circle Saturday evening, a trophy and an oversize check in hand.
