Hot old sleds hit the 2012 Outlaw Grass Drags

The hot muggy Friday, Aug. 24 weather did not sway a huge crowd for showing up for the opening night of the 2012 Outlaw Grass Drags, hosted north of Princeton.

Vintage snowmobiles were the feature draw Friday evening, with multiple heats run for a myriad of sweet old sleds. The three-day event is hosted by the Rum River Trail Association made up of six area snowmobile clubs (Mystic Riders of Princeton, St. Francis Sno Ghosts, Anoka Winter Knights, Grandy Northern Lights, Cambridge Drift Dusters and Milaca-Rum River Sno Riders). All proceeds go back into the area snowmobile trail system, explained Northern Lights member Vern Fix of Braham.

Saturday’s action at the Grass Drags was the NSRA Stock Class. On Sunday, NSRA Pro Classes, Kitty Cat/120 drags and 120cc the Oval Races were held. A Swap Meet, tons of snowmobile and other mechanized toy vendors, and food and beverage booths were among the draws to the Outlaw Grass Drags. It was a State Fair for all things snowmobile!
