"Snowmobiles are the most versatile machine man ever invented-or perhaps the racers who drive them are the most innovative. Whichever the case, the combination of competitive spirit, and a machine with the potential for virtually unlimited speed and flexibility, has created a sport that spans every terrain and season: snowmobile racing.
To the tops of mountains, over water, sand and grass, and of course on snow and ice, snowmobile racers have traversed the toughest terrain to push their sleds to maximum speeds. Competing since the second sled was built, vintage cross country, drag, and ice oval racing have paved the way for today's extreme competition racing at events such as the X-Games Snocross.
This book traces the development of how snowmobile racing got to where it is today with influence from sanctioning bodies and organizations like the USSA, ISR, and WPSA and milestone moments in sled-racing history.
Linda and David Aksomitis have written what many will call the continuation of the Bill Vint story ''Warriors of Winter'' first published in 1977. In many ways it is just that. Linda and David bring us right up to the present day racing scene played out every weekend in the snow belt of the United States and Canada during what I call the ''white-gold'' season. Loren R.
