New York Shootout to take place December 7

  • Comments 1

 The Date is set! For the 23rd annual AmSnow New York Shootout which takes place every winter in Woodgate, N.Y.

The Shootout is scheduled for the morning of Friday Dec. 7 with a back-up date of Saturday Dec. 8 at the White Otter Fish & Gun Club.

The Shootout is our first chance to compare the 2013 stock sleds on snow. Times and speeds are recorded via a timing light system. Also, these fresh out of the crate sleds will be dynoed by our partner, race coordinator, sponsor director and tech guru Jim Czekala from DynoTech Research.
Furthermore, several top aftermarket companies will be showing off/testing/racing their Trail Mod, and Lake Racer mod sleds, plus a new class of Turbo sleds!

In addition the New York Shootout has added "Turbo Time."

Here's what we have so far on the 660' "Turbo Time" Cat trail turbo shootout which will take place at the AmSnow/Dynotech New York Shootout in Woodgate, NY on Dec 7. This is a one at a time single pass competition using the professional timing system provided by Pete Webb.

Each tuner company will be allowed one sled to run.

Separate awards will be handed out for fastest MPH in 660' and quickest ET, measured separately

There will be either 2 or 3 runs per sled, likely dependent on weather and other factors. 

Jim Czekala of Dynotech, Mark Boncher and Mark Savage at American Snowmobiler, wanted to create a fun new opportunity to get public exposure and national coverage. We all want to absolutey pack the Otter Lake Fish and Game Club this year!

Here's the rules so far for the Turbo Time Shootout:

Stock turbocharger with no internal mods
No N2O
No speed tracks--1" lugs minimum
Any studs
Stock clutches
no more than 2" lower than stock ride height
trail exhaust, some sort of muffler
stock hood, seat and fuel tank.
no air filter outside of hood.
800 lb sled and driver minimum before each pass (Tom Ferry-Arctic Adventures is bringing scales)
Any gasoline.

Woodgate is just outside of Old Forge, N.Y., which also plans its 36th annual Snodeo the same weekend.

For additional participation prerequisites and questions or comments, please call Jim's cel phone 585-993-2777, or Mark Boncher at 262-798-6453,
