Ironwood Snowmobile Olympus

January 1-3, 2017

On an early December weekend back in 1968, the Ironwood community roared to life with the first ever oval snowmobile race at the Gogebic County Fairgrounds. Factory teams from Polaris, Arctic Cat, and Ski-Doo, along with privateer racing Sno-Jets, Rupps, and more came from miles around to challenge the very fast ½ mile track. For the next 15 years, the Ironwood race settled in as one of the premier snowmobile oval races in all of North America. Ironwood Snowmobile Olympus
