Wausau native Matt Schulz looks forward to first Derby in two years
By Russ Owens
EAGLE RIVER (WAOW)- In Eagle River, the 2nd weekend of the World Championship Snowmobile Derby got underway today. A few of the Championship hopefuls are from the Wausau area.
One of those is Matt Schulz, who actually had to miss out on the Derby last year, because of an injury.
HIS best finish is third place, mostly due to a lot mechanical failures in the past runnings at this race.
Schulz is on a quest to end that frustration this time around.
Says Schulz, "Yeah it's been a long time since last year, being here watching everyone else race after the accident that happened at Plymouth, so it feels really good to be back and be on the sled, and everything is running really good. So hopefully we can qualify good and run well all weekend and be there at the end sunday in the final."
