     The Antique Snowmobile Club of America recreated one of the first organized snowmobile races on February 2nd at Dollar Lake near Eagle River, Wis.

    Fifty years ago, the event fostered the now infamous “World’s Championship” Snowmobile Derby.
    The 40 of the same makes and models were found participating in those same drag, oval and hill-climb contests.

    Even the Rotary Club, the original sponsors of the 1964 event, were there serving food and refreshments.
    On a beautiful clear day, the Lake was ablaze with colorful old iron.  Some of the machines were rear-engined and some were front-engined.  Some were powered by four stroke engines and some were two stroke.  Some drivers were young club members and others looked as old as the machines they piloted.
