  Updates from the annual meeting:
1. We have added a Woman's Open 800 Oval class to the season.  It will be raced as we can during an event but the plan is to follow how we schedule 600 Drags depending on registration.

2. We will be enforcing the decibel/noise levels regarding silencers already in place from both the IWA and ISR. Read the rules and be prepared not to race if you fall outside of these rules. 

3. We are also going to completely use SeriesTracker for charts this year. If you are unfamiliar with them or want examples, email us and we can provide you with them. We have made slight changes to stay consistent with the format everyone is used to. 

4.  Registration for racing using SeriesTracker will close 2 DAYS PRIOR to Driver Checkin.  For most events this will be Midnight on Wednesday. We will allow late registration by phone to a officer until noon on day of Driver Checkin. We will enforce the $50 PER CLASS fee NO EXCEPTIONS/EXCUSES and the fee will double with each event a driver uses this feature. You MUST contact an IWA officer and speak with them (please don't leave messages) or you may not race. We will no longer accept entries at Driver Checkin. 

5. 600 mod is allowed in the 800 stock drag class permanantly without review. 

6. mod clutch guard rules are written the same for stock racing. 

7. The IWA officials will enforce the Sportsmanship procedure especially related to out of lane calls and regarding missed bouys.  If going around a missed bouy or out of lan appears to be done recklessly, Race Director or other IWA officials will make the call. 


9.  Drivers can change from an Electrical PVF to a Mechanical PVF 

10. Lastly, We will be strongly enforcing the Procedure Manual statement regarding children in the pits. This simply states that NO children under the age of 12 are ALLOWED in the pits. You can ask for special allowance by the president however the child MUST be accompanied by an adult at ALL times and must wear proper safety equipment. We are all working hard to get the season off and running. If you have any questions, please let us know.

September 15-16
Brainerd Raceway, MN

The International Watercross Association (IWA) is bringing snowmobile watercross racing twice to BIR this summer for the first time. This is crazy fun racing that you just can't miss. Lake BIR in the middle of BIR's full-service RV campground will be transformed into a racetrack for snowmobiles. There will be an oval track and a drag strip - all on open water! This is a dual-event weekend with the Central Roadracing Association on the Competition Road Course for Superbike Racing.
Driver Check In will be Saturday morning at the track from 8:30-around 10:00 am.  If the weather allows we will be at the starting line with waivers and pit bands, however if that doesn't work we will move Driver Check indoors and will post the information once it is set.

We are down to 6 days until registration closes for the 36th Annual World Championship Watercross.  To save yourself $50 per class please make sure you register online using SeriesTracker.  If you are having trouble please contact us.  Some simple pointers that will make the process easy... remember that if you attempt to register and leave the SeriesTracker website for any reason, the program "saves" your bib number for 45min.  If you can't wait the 45 minutes you can add a letter to your number and you should be able to register without difficulties however it is YOUR responsibility to let us know you made that change.  Membership is required so please choose a membership when registering if you are not already an annual member.  As the rules states, in order to race Pro ovals, Semi Pro Ovals, or Drags you need to be a weekend member or annual member.  The associate membership is acceptable only for vintage racing.  Detailed instructions are available on the registration page.
  7/4/12:  36th Annual World Championship Watercross
We are fast approaching the 36th Annual World Championship Watercross in Grantsburg WI!  Just some pointers to help anyone who hasn't raced with us yet this year:  
  1.  We are using SeriesTracker for registration and payment is required prior to Thursday July 19th at 12 noon.  We will accept registration at the race site for $50 per class charge.  Membership is required and can be paid for at the same time as payment for racing using SeriesTracker.  Please complete membership forms and save yourself time at Driver Check-In.  We have detailed instructions on the registration page but if you have trouble, please let us know.  Registration closes promptly at 12 noon and this won't be allowed as a reason if you wait until the last minute and have a problem.      
  2.  Driver Check-In will take place to obtain event and pit bands from 6-8pm on Thursday evening at Hummer's Rendezvous in downtown Grantsburg (same place as last year) and at the IWA merchandise trailer from 8-10:30.  There will be staff at the trailer beyond 10:30 however we can't guarantee that you won't have to pay for your event band so please try to make it to one of the 2 Driver Check-In times scheduled.  If you can't make it during the scheduled times, please email us.     
  3.  Some changes to the rules were made so please make sure you are familiar with them.  We will be having post race tech as we did last year and every driver needs to plan on possible tear down of his/her sled.   
6/14/12:  The IWA is proud to announce we have a sponsorship deal in place with Wiseco Performance Products.
6/10/12:  Race results and points are posted.  We have gone with a simpler counting system and scoring this week used this method.  1st place receives 4points for any heat or qualifier and 1st place finish receives 200 in both drags and ovals.  See the procedural manual for details on calculating season points.
