National series opens at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn.
AMSOIL Championship Snocross saw several major changes last season as the pandemic caused the series to move away from its traditional schedule and find new stomping grounds for its 17-race national championship.
The 2022 version, which begins Jan. 7 and 8 at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn., will build upon a number of those changes, as well as bring high-flying action back to several historic stops, including New York and Michigan.
“I am so excited about our schedule and the direction of our series,” said Carl Schubitzke, ISOC President and director of the events and scheduling. “Looking back, last year’s pause allowed us to make some changes to our schedule and our venues that will benefit the sport for years. It’s going to be a fun year of racing and we look forward to putting on a great show for our fans. ”
For the second straight year, AMSOIL Championship Snocross will start its season after Jan. 1, beginning with one of the sport’s biggest events. After a one-year hiatus caused uncertainty due to the pandemic, the series returns to Canterbury Park for two days of racing. The Canterbury grandstand provides both indoor and outdoor seating, multiple food and beverage options, fan-friendly sponsor and vendor display areas, and access to the pit. Tickets are available at tickets.canterburypark.com .
“Kicking the season off by returning to Canterbury Park and continuing our two-decade relationship is a perfect start for the thousands of racing fans that will visit the facility,” Schubitzke said.
The series will also bring back a full slate of regional racing this winter. Series officials will host two-day regional events in Fargo, Elk River, Brainerd (Minn.) and Shakopee starting December 11-12 in North Dakota.
The 2022 AMSOIL Championship Snocross season will continue to air all 17 rounds on CBS Sports Network, and via livestream at www.snocross.com.
