20/21 Cor PowerSports season update

Good morning!

We have been receiving a lot of inquiries over the past couple weeks in regards to status of the upcoming race season due to current COVID restrictions in the Midwest.

With the announcement yesterday of the USXC banquet being cancelled as well as numerous other summer race events being cancelled we figured an update for everyone would help ease some concerns.

Over the past couple months we have been having numerous conversations with ISR, USAC, and host venues. As of today we all feel cross country is one discipline of snowmobile racing that already social distances very well since we run courses that are 10+ miles in length. Our racers, spectators, and crew are spread out over the course and majority of people are in their own vehicles. There are of course a few items we will need to review practices on how they are handled and possibly adjust as events get closer to accommodate whatever the current guidelines are.

Those items are:

  • Online registration with all entries pre-paid
    • We have already been working on a new online registration process that we have been using for the 20/21 Cor PowerSports membership registration. That has been working very well with only a couple adjustments needed, event registrations are ready to go live October 1st.

 

  • Driver check in procedures
    • We are working through waiver form options as well as how to handle transponder rentals and other items that need to be done on race day.

 

  • Riders meeting
    • This one is an easy fix; we will use the PA system and FM transmitter to do riders meeting at all events IF we cannot hold them in a group gathering as we have the last 9 years.

 

  • Awards presentation
    • This one we have an easy solution but we really don’t want to eliminate the group awards ceremony for after the event unless we have no other choice. These awards presentation are a great way to recognize in a group setting our winners as well as sponsors and host venue. This will be something addressed as each event gets closer.

Again we just wanted to be relay the information to all of our racers, fans, venues, and sponsors that we are working diligently on making sure the season will be able to continue as planned with only changes made for COVID guidelines.

If you have any questions feel free to email me and we are excited to see everyone at the races.

You can still sign up for your season membership by going to the Forms and Rules page, the Early Bird discount ends Oct 1. The winner of the July membership giveaway of the PowerMadd handguards is Taylor Cloose of Pinewood, MN!

August we will have another giveaway, the product will be announced Mid-August.

Sincerely,

Todd Myers
