September 27-28, 2014 is Wisconsin's LARGEST
snowmobile grass drags & swap meet event held in Wausau in its 25th year on the Trailmates grounds
THOUSANDS of snowmobilers and other powersports enthusiasts, fans and
vintage racers will be welcomed back once again. The ATV & Mini Rod Pull
State Championship events in addition to NSRA-sanctioned snowmobile
grass drags & swap meet /
vendor displays are always a
highlight worth checking out while on the grounds. NSRA is the
same sanctioning racing organization and race circuit as the popular Haydays Grass Drags.
Race action at Wausau Grass Drags is high energy on the racer-favorite 4-lane, hardened & rolled 500
track. (300 feet for vintage classes.) Expect fast times and cool
sleds. You'll also find the swap meet and vendor display
pricing to be the best Central Wisconsin will see all season.
Watch for the tentative event schedule and updates to be posted to this
page on or about April 1, 2013.
