ELK RIVER, Minn. (Feb. 8, 2018) – As soon as the snow dust settled on last weekend’s innovative and highly-entertaining ERX Eliminator snocross race, the groomers at ERX Motor Park began reworking and tuning the snocross track specifically for recreational snowmobilers of all ages to test the latest in Polaris, Ski-Doo and Arctic Cat snowmobiles.
Dubbed “Ride Day” at ERX, the consumer-faced event was a big hit as ERX wrapped up its 10th anniversary celebration weekend by giving back to the fans in the coolest of ways. All kinds of positive feedback on Ride Day poured into the ERX offices throughout the week. Here’s a sampling of what the snowmobile industry had to say about the event:
“The ERX Demo Day was a huge success for us. It was great to see people who have driven a snowmobile before, and some that have never been on one, get the chance to drive the 2018 Arctic Cat models. With snow being scarce the past few years it is so nice to have a place like ERX to bring people out and get a ride in. It is something that we hope we can do again soon!” – PJ Wanderscheid, Country Cat
“Most of the compliments we received was for ERX having the event to start with and also being able to try out the latest machines from each manufacture on a competitive style course. Another compliment we received was for having a variety of machines ranging from mountain to trail models as well as having various Ski-Doo models with the 850 E-TEC to give people a better perspective on the power and responsiveness from the new big bore engine. We did also hear from quite a few people that the Ski-Doo Renegade was the fan favorite with one of the smoothest ride and more planted feeling in the corners, giving the average rider more confidence in their riding ability. Overall everyone seemed to have a wonderful time and we look forward to being there next year.” – Eric Swaser, Power Lodge
“Ride Day at ERX was a huge success and it was great to see so many people come out and enjoy a fun winter activity that Minnesota has to offer! My favorite part of the event was watching all the children get out and be able to ride a snowmobiles. Introducing snowmobiles to our next generation is so important and this is a perfect way for us to do it! Our staff was honored to be able to get out with the community at ERX Motor Park and give people a chance to test drive a Polaris snowmobile and ask questions regarding the sleds.” – Kathy Bethke, Mies Outland
“The ERX track brought out what each machine was capable of which was great to see. I know people enjoyed the variety of machines that were on hand as well. Being able to get direct feedback and give people information while on a sled is beyond perfect conditions for us to succeed.” – AJ Oster, Power Lodge
The staff at ERX Motor Park would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that came out and helped us celebrate our 10th anniversary. From the fans to the racers, track workers, dealers and industry members, thank you for being a part of the celebration. We look forward to many more memories at the track with you!
