Poirier Overcomes Mechanical Issues to Claim 6th Career Title at East Coast Snocross
CLARKSBURG, Mass. (April 4, 2016) — In one of the closest Pro class championship battles in series history, Quebec native Danny Poirier overcame a number of mechanical issues and a hard-charging teammate to record his sixth career title, as East Coast Snocross (ECS) concluded an abbreviated yet highly competitive 2016 racing season.
Poirier, of St. Theodore, edged Mathieu Morin by the narrowest of margins after 11 Pro Open finals were contested. The Ingles Performance/Ski-doo riders battled side-by-side all season, with Poirier sweeping the finals in Bangor, Maine, and Morin notching a sweep of his own at the season finale at Pittston Farm. Congratulations to our six-time champion and his teammate for their historic one-two finish in points. It was a thrill to see the great battles, and we hope to see more in 2017.
Officials announce new partnership with Camso at East Coast Snocross
CLARKSBURG, Mass. (Jan. 12, 2016) — One of the key components of any snowmobile is its rubber track. It provides flotation over the white gold we call snow, and directly connects the power under our hoods to the trail below.
Within the far-reaching snowmobile industry, one name stands above the rest when it comes to manufacturing tracks. Officials at East Coast Snocross (ECS) have announced a new partnership with Camso (formerly Camoplast), the worldwide leader in snowmobile tracks and ATV track systems.
"We're extremely proud to have Camso join our group of marketing partners for what we feel is shaping up to be a fantastic 2016 season," series owner Kurt Gagne said. "They represent high quality, and have supported sled racing of all kinds for many years. We're honored to have their support and will be promoting Camso tracks to our fans throughout the season. We welcome them to our team."

Officials at East Coast Snocross (ECS) are proud to announce that Plaistow Powersports, a full-service Snow Bike kit dealer in Plaistow, New Hampshire, has signed on to sponsor the new Snow Bike class for 2016.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. (Dec. 4, 2015) — Officials at East Coast Snocross (ECS) and Southside Sales and Service, a longtime Polaris dealer in North Adams, Massachusetts, have announced a new program created to boost the purses available to Sport class riders during the 2016 season.
While a great deal of attention is rightfully centered around the Pro Open and Pro Lite classes, it's the Sport class that develops riders as they hone their skills for the future. These young racers also face the high cost of racing and will directly benefit from this new program.
