Snowmobile Watercross Racing Photos

What do snowmobile racers do in the summer? Race snowmobiles on the water, of course, in snowmobile watercross events.

Grantsburg, Wisconsin, is the birthplace of snowmobile watercross. Photos below are from one of the hottest watercross  events ever, with temperatures soaring up to 100 degrees. This 29th annual snowmobile watercross racing event was one of the fastest shows on H2O on July 16-17, 2005
