THANK YOU! WE APPRECIATE IT!
The 2018/2019 Ironwood Snowmobile Olympus is right around the corner. And we have enjoyed many years of great racing action at the fairgrounds in Ironwood. How do we say Thank You in a truly appropriate way? I don't know if we really can, but let us start with this. We need to thank both Red's Auto of Ironwood and Northern Clearing, Inc of Ashland for taking on the Title Sponsorship for the race. Great people who are truly excited by ice oval racing. In addition to Red's and NCI, we had more than 20 other primary sponsors who supported the race. Thank you to each and everyone of you.
The fans - Yes, the fans. They have packed the stands, trackside parking was full all the way around turn 1 & 2, food, beverage and clothing sales have been strong. The drivers love seeing the stands full during the race line up, and the organizers appreciate your attendance! And we are looking to have a fantastic turn out for all three of our races this year! Thank YOU Fans - You guys rock.
USSA Group and the Race Teams - Well, we couldn't do it without you. Some have driven 60 miles, some have drivewn 600 miles, and a few drove more than a 1000 miles. Incredible - Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. You make the event what it is. Your professionalism is outstanding, Your willingness to meet and greet media, VIPs, kids, and fans doesn't go unnoticed. Thank you for representing your sport so well. We are looking forward to see you this year!
Volunteers - The entire Ironwood Snowmobile Olympus is run by volunteers. Not one paid person. From the summer planning meetings and hay making days to the fall track prep to the crazy December schedule to the cold January clean up - we appreciate it all. The event relies on a great track, great services, and a friendly smile along the way. On behalf of everyone involved - Thank you for making the ISO GREAT AGAIN!
So Thank You - We have had some great racing over the last several years, and hopefully it can only be better if we all pull together once more in an effort to bring the fast and historic 1/2 mile back to life - "Where Legends Race!"
