Willmar notebook: Wild thing: Winnipeg to Willmar race in the works
The way things are going, Brian Nelson can’t back out.
The idea of a U.S. cross country I-500 snowmobile race from Winnipeg to Willmar in mid-February of 2015 just keeps “gaining traction,” in the words of the 1971 Willmar High School graduate.
The response has been “phenomenal,” said Nelson, owner/manager of the eight-stop USXC circuit that stopped in his hometown for a second straight year last weekend.
Inquiries have come from Europe, even Russia.
