Case Equipment Keep Derby ‘On Track’


Earlier this year, Case Construction Equipment sponsored the 49th running of the AMSOIL World Championship Snowmobile Derby in Eagle River, Wisconsin. As part of the sponsorship, Case provided equipment to support the derby and facility in various chores.

Case SR175 and SR220 skid steer loaders and TR320 and TV380 compact track loaders – each equipped with an angle broom – were used to sweep the track between races. A Case 721F wheel loader was used to build the snow course, and a Case SV250 skid steer with pallet forks was used for loading and unloading equipment.

“Case is proud to be an official product sponsor of this legendary snowmobile competition and to have our brand associated with the best of the best in the world of snowmobile racing,” said Russ Wadzinski, general manager of the Case Tomahawk Customer Center in Tomahawk, Wisconsin.

Mr. Wadzinski, an Eagle River class champion racer himself, approached the Decker family, owners of the Eagle River snowmobile derby track, to explore the opportunity of bringing Case customers from the Case Tomahawk Customer Center to the Eagle River track for tours of the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame.

The championship event is one of the highest-ranking winter sports events in the Midwest and one of oldest continuous snowmobile races in the world, drawing more than 40,000 spectators from around the world.

Home to the World Championship Snowmobile Derby for 49 years, the Eagle River derby track contains three separate racing venues including the Ice Oval, the Sno-Cross and the Vintage Racing track. The Ice Oval and Sno-Cross tracks are built and maintained using more than 7,5 million litres of water, a 15,000 l ice truck, a state-of-the-art snow-making machine, a groomer and an ice shaver.
