The purpose of our new Deep Snow Super Stock class was to increase participation by those with sleds that are mountain ridden regularly. The rules were written with these mountain ridden sleds in mind and to try and encompass the most common improvements these riders are making to their sleds.


It is very common to see vertical cold air intake kits on mountain sleds as it reduces the chance of the deep snow choking off the air intake of the sled, which is most commonly behind the windshield in its stock location. With a filter pointing upward, the rider can monitor the snow buildup on the intake, if it occurs at all. Because this is so common, this style of intake will be allowed in Deep Snow Super Stock as it is keeping in line with the mountain ridden sled theme. Examples of these style of intakes are as follows:







However, there are intakes which are intended to create a "ram air" boosting effect by having the speed of the sled force more air into the intake. This style of intake is not used by mountain riders as it would plug up more easily with snow. As such, this style of intake will not be allowed in Deep Snow Super Stock. Examples of this style of intake which will not be allowed include:






We hope this provides some clarity and we appreciate the interest this new class is generating.

There has been quite a bit of discussion lately about the classification of the current factory 4-stroke turbo sleds. In the interest of creating some clarity, we can offer the following:


ISR has never classified the current factory 4 stroke turbo charged sleds. There has been a lot of interest in these sleds though, as well as their predecessors including the 1100 turbo from Arctic Cat. In light of these sleds’ popularity, the SSRA created classes for them to compete in a number of seasons ago.


When classifying a sled, it is important to begin with the stock class. With the tuning allowed in stock classes, it was clear that these turbo sleds “should” outrun any other stock sled. Therefore in the interest of fair competition, a new stock class was added, Open Stock. This is the entry class for the current 4-stroke turbo sleds. 2 Stroke sleds can move up to this class as well if they so choose. As in all stock classes, tuning is allowed but OEM components must be used on the turbo sled including all induction and exhaust components.


Moving up to Improved Stock – if a class was needed to be created for a stock class sled, then one needed to be created for these sleds that are improved as well. Therefore, the Open Improved Stock class was added. Obviously the technology of a turbo charged 4 stroke sled is different from that of a 2 stroke sled, so the intake and exhaust modifications for the turbo sleds were looked at. The modifications that were settled on were mufflers, air intake (as long as it remains under-hood), charge tubes (as long as they are OEM diameter), and wastegate and blow-off valves. It is important to note that the engine components, turbo, and exhaust header must all remain stock OEM. It is also important to note that just like in other Improved Stock classes, engine stutter and launch control devices are not allowed.


Moving up to additional classes – Although it has a minimum track requirement, the Mountain Improved Stock class is a step up from the regular Improved Stock classes. This is because more modifications are allowed that can reduce weight and improve performance. For this reason, a sled that is Open Improved Stock qualified can move up to Mountain Improved if it meets the track requirements. If the 4 stroke turbo sled has modifications that do not qualify it for Open Improved, it will compete in Mountain Open, Open Mod 1000, or Outlaw, depending on the nature of the modifications.


We hope this brings some clarity to the discussion and we encourage anyone with further questions about a particular sled configuration to contact Dale for further information.

The 2020 Race Season is approaching almost as fast as an Outlaw race sled and we have some news and updates to share with you! In order to cover everything, we are going to be holding our first ever Facebook Live broadcast. This will allow us to cover all the news and take comments and questions from the racers as the broadcast progresses. Why Facebook Live? It is an interactive format and the video will be saved on our Facebook page to be viewed later for those who can't attend the live session.


Topics planned to be covered include:

- 2019 Season Championship Points Awards presentation details

- 2020 Season Schedule

- Announcement of host for 2020 Western Canadian Championships

- New class recap and floating the idea of a totally new style class

- Mini sleds for the 2020 season

- Race fuel orders for the 2020 season

- and more!


Because of the nature of our page you shouldn't have to be a Facebook user to watch the video. A link to our Facebook page is located on the bottom of every page of the website. However, if you log in to Facebook to attend the Live session, you will be able to post questions and comments during the presentation.


We ask that you bear with us as this is the first time for us with this new format and we will try to keep technical snags to a minimum.


The LIVE broadcast is scheduled for Wednesday, December 11th at 8:30 pm Saskatchewan/Manitoba time (7:30 pm Mountain Time in Alberta).


See you then!
