EAGLE RIVER - The first-ever ATV & UTV World Championship Derby is well underway. Races begin early in the morning and conclude Sunday afternoon. Derbytrack owner Chuck Decker said there are about 200 entries, or about 150 participants. 

"It's been going really good, it's a first time event," Decker said. "You know we're very used to running a lot of snowmobile events, so this is very different. There's always some hiccups when you first start out. But things are going good. People are starting to come in. There's a lot of vendors here. I think it's going to be a great weekend."
