Debut at Vermont's Magic Mountain next stop for ECS
CLARKSBURG, Mass. (Feb. 25, 2015) — For the first time in many years, the excitement of championship snowmobile racing returns to its roots in southern Vermont, as East Coast Snocross (ECS) will contest round eight of its nine-race 2015 schedule on Saturday and Sunday, March 7-8, at the beautiful Magic Mountain ski area in Londonderry.
Spectator gates open at 9 a.m. each day, with all Finals concluding shortly after 3:30 p.m. Admission is $15 per day for adults or $25 for a weekend pass. Children age 7 and under will be admitted free with a paying adult. Pit passes valid through the weekend are available for an extra $10.
Leading the charge into Magic Mountain is defending and four-time Pro Open champion Danny Poirier. The Quebec native has been on a tear this season aboard his Ingles Performance/Ski-doo, piling up the wins and podiums as he strives for a fifth title. Working hard to challenge Poirier for that crown is series newcomer Johan Dahlgren, of Sweden, who already has a pair of wins this season riding his Team Southside/Mystic Lubricants Polaris.
