Along with a slate of racing in pro and pro lite, the Malone event will also include sport, women and junior divisions. This event will also feature a trail stock class for those looking to give snocross a try for the first time.
Leading the charge into Malone in the pro division is Mike Pilotte. The Team Southside Polaris racer from Fall River, Mass., won the first six finals this season. He’ll have to fend off hard chargers like Dylan Roes (D&D Racing/Arctic Cat), a successful grass drag racer who is starting to turn some heads in snocross.
Some of the riders to watch in the Pro Lite class include Dalton Jacquier, Adam Ashline, Adam Levi and Wade Acker. Jacquier and Acker already have a pair of wins each in 2019, while Ashline notched his first career Pro Lite victory in Warrensburg, in early February.
Other riders to watch in Pro Lite include Tucker Kierstead (D&D Racing/Arctic Cat) and Ryan Dupont (Team Southside/Polaris). All of these young athletes will be contenders in Malone.
Aggressive trail riders with a desire to compete can test their skills in a safe environment in the trail stock division. The weekend will also include races for children ages 6 to 10 riding 120cc machines on a separate, smaller track. This is where future stars of the sport learn what racing is all about.
Spectator gates open at 10 am each day. Tickets are $12 per day for adults or $20 for a weekend pass. Children age 7 and under are admitted free with a paying adult. Pit passes for those wanting an up-close look at the teams as they work on their machines are available for an extra $10.
The East Coast Snocross series, presented by Woody’s Traction and FXR, is an ISR-affiliated sanctioning body for snowmobile racing in the northeastern United States. ECS maintains a regional circuit.
