2000 – February 7 – Volume 27, No. 12


Recovering from injuries suffered the previous spring, Defending Champ Mike Houle said his mod sled wasn’t making great power, and it wasn’t handling as well as some other sleds, either. Yet the ironman persevered in an action-packed World Championship in Eagle River to win his second straight! Read all about his historic victory plus 15 other winners on the high-banked oval AND 19 classes on the infield snocross course where Dennis Durmas cleaned up in the Pro classes in the USI Select Snocross. Wait, there’s more: The issue includes blow-by-blow details on Brad Pake’s victory at the Ironman 250, the “first look” at the 2001 Yamahas, an interview with Canadian racer Mike Morrow, an insider’s look at engine porting plus an extended Racewire section with shorts on Morgan’s victories in Crandon, Bosek’s enduro win at Shawano and more.
