Snow Drags puts 100 Mile on the map

‘We will plan for another event next year’

The 100 Mile Snow Drags event raced its way to a rewarding weekend (March 7 and 8) for the South Cariboo Track and Trail Dirt Bike Association.

According to Brandon Plewes, president of the association, over 35 racers participated in the event.

“The weekend went very well,” said Plewes. “It went better than expected. There was a great number of spectators and the perfect number of racers for the first event.”

The fast-paced, action-filled event brought in racers from all around the province. Plewes said the event in 100 Mile received a higher turnout than similar events throughout the province.

Proceeds raised over the weekend will go towards covering the insurance costs for the 2020-2021 motocross season.

“We will plan for another event next year,” said Plewes. “The feedback from spectators to the racers was that the event was organized and ran smoothly. You could see [from] the looks on everybody’s faces that they enjoyed the weekend.”

Plewes thanked the sponsors and volunteers. He says without them the event wouldn’t have been the event that it was.
