Official 2016-17 ISR rules are now posted at http://www.isrracing.org/tempPDF/Vintage%20Oval.pdf    See pages 17-19.  These are the rules we will be using at West Yellowstone for the coming season and beyond. The only changes from last year are in the stock classes. Stock will be stock, no internal modifications to the engine and only rubber molded tracks produced in 1985 or before are legal. If you are running a sled that came with a metal cleated track you can use any track or rear suspension from a 1985 or older sled of any brand to make the conversion. Super Stock and Mod rules remain unchanged. Classes for West will be released soon and will likely include additional L/C classes in Super Stock and possibly Stock.

From the WSVSA Facebook page ...


May I first start off by saying.... I am no fan 
of the 500 class, the “UP TO 500cc” that the 
440’s now run with, be it Stock, Super Stock or
Mod !!  ….. Just my opinion …. And with that 
said, let’s get on with the show and get some
sleds ready to race in West Yellowstone in 
March of 2017.  If it’s ISR that will be the basis
of our rule package, then let’s all get on board
and move forward to improving our events.

In preparing my overdue statement, I have spent
the last several weeks talking with those that are involved with conducting the races, as well as
with those that are interested in racing and being
a part of what it is we have at West Yellowstone.

New to the schedule of races at West for 2017
will be … 
Super Stock 340 Liquid Cooled 
and 500 Super Stock Liquid Cooled.

These will both fall under the same ISR
Super Stock rules.  

A couple of major areas that will be addressed are …..

Track !! … There will be more room for the oval
at the next event. I have been in contact with
the folks there that it will be an oval, not a quad corner track. We are planning a grooming schedule that can better help with race schedule.

Tech !! …  Both pre tech and post tech will be
ready and in place at the next Yellowstone event !!

Announcer !! … In the pit area to better serve everyone and help with staging.

With this ….I have given just a few highlights.

Always remember this ….. You have chosen to 
be at the race. Prepare your race sleds according
to the rules at that event. Your there because you want to be …. And we want you there !!!!
