From its humble beginnings on Dollar Lake to the multi-million dollar facility we all enjoy today; the Derby was destined to be the best. It hosts three separate racing venues: ice oval, sno-cross and vintage racing.  This year's derby takes place January 18-21, 2018. Thursday evening features time trials, Friday night features “Friday Night Thunder”, Saturday features grueling heats, quarter and semi-finals all leading up to the Championship Finals on Sunday. Racing Daily at 10:00 am. 


Known as the “Indianapolis 500 of Snowmobile Racing,” the Derby attracts more than 40,000 spectators annually. Fans travel from all over the United States, Canada and beyond to watch more than 500 international drivers race their high-tech snowmobiles.
