The one guy who gave their Rupp snowmobiles to me and he sent me some pics from my e-mail. The old Rupp snowmobile race. These photos are from early 1970's Rupp Snowmobile Race at Walworth County Fair in Elkhorn, WI and there was 14 rupp snowmobile in this racing plus other model of snowmobile like ski doo, polaris, etc... So they were racing each other. One guy got first place in this race was rupp, he had 1972 Rupp Nitro 650.
I never knew it was done on plain old dirt. See quite a few pictures where it's supposed to be snow and has turned to mud, but on a horse track with no snow at all??? Looks like fun!
yep, a horse track with no snow. This was in September. Should be fun! Maybe we should go on horse track and race! But it will wear the Rupp's Sled out faster. Also get close to 100% traction. woo hoo!
runnerupp: Probably shunned upon but I finally got my 74 American out with 95 Indy drive and new limped track.

lemans1955: Lol!! I agree with Rupplover, keep em going, specially with a track conversion. Rupp tracks are hard to come by, and even when you find a nice one they are still 40 years old and heavy as sin.
