    Snowmobile racing on open water? That's what the Int'l Watercross Assoc. racing is all about! Snowmobiles drag race across Lake BIR and compete in oval racing by skipping across the water as they make laps around floating markers. And sometimes they sink to the bottom of the lake, only to be pulled out, dried off and lined up again for more racing. It's great entertainment for the whole family. The IWA has two dates on the BIR calendar this season:
    June 9-11 with Bracket Drag Racing & CRA Superbike racing
    Sept. 22-24 with CRA Superbike racing
