CHAMPIONSHIP SNOWMOBILE RACING COMES TO SENECA ALLEGANY CASINO & HOTEL IN FEBRUARY More than 200 of the world’s greatest snowmobilers to race in AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series during three action-packed days – February 22-24 SALAMANCA, NY – A new outdoor event is coming to Western New York this February on the grounds of Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel, and it will make spectators’ hearts pump fast. More than 200 of the top snowmobile racers from North America and nearly a dozen countries worldwide will converge in Salamanca, NY, for the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series, presented by Traxxas, from February 22 to 24. The racers will face off in a full-throttle, action-packed series of races that combine big-air jumps and competitive racing. Crews will turn one million gallons of water into snow over a football-field-sized plot of land at Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel to create snowmobile tracks with wicked twists and turns, as well as ramps that will send vehicles flying dozens of feet into the air. The weekend is also one of eight nationally-televised events on CBS Sports Network for the 2012-2013 season. Tickets for the event go on sale Monday, Dec. 3, at the Logo Shop inside Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel and online at www.isocracing.com. Ticket prices are $25 for Friday, $25 for Saturday, $15 for Sunday, or a value-priced $30 all-weekend pass. Admission is free for children ages six and younger. Bleachers set up around the track can accommodate thousands of fans, and bright lights will illuminate the track during the evening hours on Friday and Saturday, when the main events take place and are taped for television. The atmosphere will be festive, including food, beverage, gear for purchase in the nearby Seneca Allegany Events Center, jumbosized video screens, autograph sessions and activities for the whole family – including the Traxxas Try Me Track, which allows fans to test remote-controlled trucks on a snow-covered course.
