Portage County Ice Wars

By Bonnie Shelton

AMHERST (WAOW)--Snowmobile racers take to the track this weekend in Amherst to compete in the Portage County Ice Wars.

The weekend event is part of the Central Wisconsin Triple Crown. Racers young and old participated in several heats and rounds Saturday. Cash prizes and bragging rights are at stake all weekend.

Snowmobile racers as young as 10 years old compete in the Junior Novice class.

Organizers say there's no better place to watch snowmobile racers duke it out.

"You can't see any better racing anywhere than right here in Amherst. It's the same people as Eagle river, it's all Champion caliber racing," said Ice Wars Co-Chair Steve Peterson.

Money raised at the event goes directly back into the Amherst community.
