Tomahawk Speedway Hosting Inaugural Snowmobile Race
Published on 02/24/2017 under News While the Tomahawk Speedway is busy on many summer nights with auto racing, this weekend the track will be filled with some of the top snowmobile racers in the world. The Speedway is hosting the inaugural Winter Hatchet Nationals sled races this weekend. While organizing has been ongoing for some time, the track preparation over the past month has been not only steady, but challenging. Often working in the early mornings or overnight crews have been laying the nearly foot and half of ice base on the short oval. Covers and tents were utilized to prevent sun exposure during this recent stretch of spring like weather. While there are over twenty classes of racing throughout the weekend, the big draw is the Champ 440 series. That's where two time and reigning World Champion Nick Van Strydonk will be race his hometown. He'll be joined by teammate, cousin and fellow Tomahawk native Beau. The field actually contains the three most recent derby champs with Matt Schulz and Cardell Potter also completed. With the track seemingly preserved and the covers lifted, the racers are ready to fire up their sleds. Earlier this week organizers determined to push the schedule forward a day to accommodate travel conditions and give the track one more day to set up. As a result those races will be all day Saturday and Sunday.

Organizers Adapt Weekend Events After Warm Weather and Snow
Published on 02/24/2017 under News This week's unusual weather pattern has forced local event organizers to adapt on the fly. Unseasonably warm temperatures deteriorated conditions for many, while the weekend snow has made travel difficult. As a result, many events have been changing as the week has progressed. Perhaps the biggest draw for the weekend is the Birkebeiner Cross County Ski Race. Organizers announced earlier this week that they would be changing and shortening their course due to some bare spots and ice conditions. The ice conditions also claimed the ice fishing portion of the Somo Fish and Game Club. Their organizers canceled early, but determined to continue with their celebration and raffle which serves as a fundraiser. Unfortunately other events such as the Gleason Community Club Ice Races became casualties due to the conditions. Meanwhile snowmobile racing returns to the Tomahawk Speedway with the Winter Hatchet Nationals. Track crews worked throughout the warm spell to keep the ice on the track and ready for racing. That included tenting or covering the ice oval to keep the sun off. Their organizers made a decision to push the schedule forward a day due to possible poor travel today. As a result they'll race Saturday and Sunday. Travel conditions also forced numerous post season high school sporting events to be moved up in order to remain on schedule for future rounds. As always stay tuned to WJJQ for updates, cancellations and changes to local events.
