- People usually go to the Eagle River Derby Track to take in snowmobile races.
This summer, you'll be able to watch more than that on the same track.
It'll play host to the first annual UTV & ATV World Championship Derby.
Drivers will get to compete head to head over a course filled with clay, sand, and water.
Those behind the scenes say it's a one of a kind race.
"That's the hottest industry right now in the power sports business," says Russ Davis, V.P. of Marketing and Sales for the Derby Track. "We just think, with the facility that we have here, with the oval track, with the opportunity to modify that so that we can keep racing all down here in the bowl, it's like a stadium race without the roof."
The track's snowmobile derby brings in people from around the world, but there could be an even bigger turnout for the summer race.
"We anticipate it to be actually bigger, even though it's our first year," says Davis. "The winter time, we're always fighting the weather elements. 20 below zero in the middle of January, that's something we can't do anything about, but we are expecting a good attendance, good gate."
The event runs from August 28th until August 30th.
