BANGOR- The snow may not be as plentiful as it was before, but that’s not going to stop some people from getting on their vintage sleds and squeezing the throttle.
The Penobscot Snowmobile Club hosted their first “Squeeze the Throttle Vintage Sled Races” at their trails today.
The races featured all sorts of classes for racers to choose from.
With a massive turnout at the event, racers had a lot to ride for.
“I think the turnout was excellent. I mean, we’ve been to quite a few races this year and this being Hermon’s first race, it was actually probably the biggest turnout of all the races we’ve been to this year so definitely a big success and hopefully they do it again next year for racers like us to enjoy,” said Tom Pederson, a local racer.
Thanks to the support of all of their donors, winners received cash payouts based on their race with the winner of the king of the track open walking away with a grand $2,500.
Racers say they can’t wait for the snow to return and to hit the tracks next year.
