World Championship Derby Under New Ownership

The famous World Championship Derby Track in Eagle River, Wisconsin, has a new owner – and an aggressive new plan going forward – as a group of longtime snowmobile industry insiders and passionate fans of the event purchased the track from now-former owner Chuck Decker.

The group is led by Snowmobile USA and World Snowmobile Headquarters founder/owner Tom Anderson, former Bombardier/Ski-Doo Vice President of Sales & Marketing Russ Davis and renowned drag racer and current Snowmobile Hall of Fame president Craig Marchbank.
