Summer Event Coming To ER Derby Track


Eagle River welcomes a new event this summer sure to draw crowds: the First Annual World Championship UTV and ATV Derby will be held August 28th – 30th on the snowmobile derby track. Russ Davis is the Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at the track, and he says the UTV / ATV derby is about more than just racing.

"We’ve got some new experiences that we’re able to implement during summer time vs. winter. One, we’re gonna have camping on the grounds. We’ve got over 200 campsites available for spectators as well as racers to stay right on the grounds. We’ll have manufacturers’ displays and, more importantly, demo rides."

The weekend-long races will include both a short course with a motor-cross style track, as well as oval racing, held on the same track where the World Championship Snowmobile Derby is in winter. Davis says preliminary interest has been tremendous.
