2010 Race Date - Jan 9/10 - Saturday Moose 3hr Endurance Race (non-points G.P.), Sunday points - Race Results
Neillsville is one of the most anticipated races of the season! With the weekend kickoff of the Moose 3hr Endurance Race on Saturday, Sunday's Central Wisconsin Ice Racing Series points race is usually has one of the best turnouts of the season. The Moose Endurance Race is a non-CWIRA event but features one of the biggest ice G.P. layouts of the season designed by the legendary racer Jeff Fredette. Sunday the racing turns to the traditional ovals, but the G.P. classes also run the BIG course from Saturday. The Moose Race on Saturday will be a 3hr race for bikes and WILL have a 1hr race for quads following. Quad racers should plan on arriving by 1pm for signup and practice at 2pm. CWIRA membership is not required on Saturday.
Food vending and race sign-up will be in the picnic shelter adjacent to the boat landing as you proceed onto the ice from the park.
NOTE: As this will be only the second race of the 2010 season expect a line of people renewing their CWIRA Membership. You can avoid this by renewing by mail - click here for more information. CWIRA Membership is required at all events (with the exception of the Saturday MOOSE race) and is $30 per year.

History: 2009 Results The CWIRA literally got it's start along the lakes and backwaters of Wisconsin's Black River Valley. The Neillsville Ice Race has a long history and has been held at several locations in the past, most recently Snyder Park before moving to it's current spot on Lake Sherwood. Many long time CWIRA racers call this part of the state home, and is considered their "local" race. Having the advantage of good early season ice has brought many fast rides from the warmer South and the result has always been a fast and highly competitive event. Moose Racing has been a sponsor of Off-Road events in Clark County for many years featuring pro races on the extensive trail network in the Clark County Forest.

Directions: From the Southwest take 54 out of Black River Falls to City Point, then North on Cty Z. From the South and East you will want to be West of Pittsville on 73 again to Cty Z. About halfway between 73 and 54 on Cty Z it makes several curves - there will be Badger Ave. to the South. Follow that to Dyer Road (you will only be able to go right) and that will go into Sherwood Park. From the Northwest you can take 73 South from Neillsville or 13 to 73 out of Marshfield. CAUTION: Every year somebody dumps into the ditch at the corner of Badger & Dyer. IT WILL BE SLIPPERY and it is a sharp corner. Once you leave Cty Z onto Badger Ave. be very careful and watch your speed!
