Snocross Championship brings hundreds to Grand Traverse

Snocross riders get read for the big Amsoil Snocross Championship race.

People from all over the country showed up at the Turtle Creek Casino Saturday, not to roll the dice, but to check out an action packed day of Snocross!

For the first year, the casino hosted the National Amsoil Snocross Championship races. This tour travels all across the country hosting thrilling snow competitions.

On Saturday, spectators could check out more hundreds of racers as young as 10-years-old -- as they raced around the impressive course.

"They're taking off at 60mph, getting the biggest air, and they launch the length of an NBA basketball court," said Turtle Creek PR person, Tracy Kurtz. "It is absolutely amazing. It's wonderful."
