A new outdoor event is coming to Western New York this February on the grounds of Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel, and it will make spectators’ hearts pump fast.  More than 200 of the top snowmobile racers from North America and nearly a dozen countries worldwide will converge in Salamanca, NY, for the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series, presented by Traxxas, from February 22 to 24.

The racers will face off in a full-throttle, action-packed series of races that combine big-air jumps and competitive racing.  Crews will turn one million gallons of water into snow over a football-field-sized plot of land at Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel to create snowmobile tracks with wicked twists and turns, as well as ramps that will send vehicles flying dozens of feet into the air.  The weekend is also one of eight nationally-televised events on CBS Sports Network for the 2012-2013 season.
