Wauconda, Illinois (January 14, 2014) – This past weekend Great Lakes Region Snocross Presented by Jim Potts Motor Group (Ski Doo Dealer in Woodstock, IL) Hosted Round one of the new – Great Lakes/Great Northern Snocross Showdown Powered by Ameritemp.

This is a new two round event hosted by the Illinois & Wisconsin Affiliates of the International Series of Champions ( ISOC ). In round one Illinois affiliate Great Lakes Region Snocross (GLX) hosted the Wisconsin affiliate Great Northern Snocross Series (GNSS) in Wauconda Illinois. The two series combined for over 120 racer registrations and provided a great high flying show for the fans on a near perfect Saturday afternoon.

It was clear from the first heat race of the day that the battle was on, and the Junior 14-15 year olds led this day by GNSS racer Adam Peterson showing the on lookers that there was a battle in store. There were battles and good quality racing throughout the day and in the end GLX took the most podiums and topped the box only two times more than GNSS racers. There were many good races on this day and the finale in Plymouth Wisconsin on January 25th should be just as exciting.
