Daybreak Winter Fun: Snowmobile Drag Racing

Full story: WGRZ Buffalo 8
It may not be every Western New Yorkers idea of a good time. But, it's a unique way to take care of a need for speed with snow on the ground. Read more

I used to work the finish line at this event. I was asked to leave after using fishing line tied to a tree at each end. The line held up well but the drivers had some Zednik type of injuries.

Stu,
You have never worked this event for Shawnee. We've only had it one time before-this was to be the 2nd and was cancelled due to lack of snow.

MAYBE with all of the deaths in NY state from snowmobiling..... this should not have been aired... NOT everyone knows how to handle the machine and imitation is NOT the best flattery when SOMEONE dies doing it )c:

I don't totally disagree with you.....but...should the Daytona 500 be cancelled because Dale Earnhardt was killed. Racing should be done on a track, under controlled conditions. Not a single death that you speak of, was at any type of racing event, that I'm aware of. I'd much rather race down a well lit track at 100 plus miles per hour, than down some dark trail, at say 40 mph,with only a little headlight to show the way.
If someone doesn't know how to operate a snowmobile or a car, guess what....THEY SHOULDN'T BE DRIVING!!
Your thoughts are noteworthy, you just need a little prespective.

What AWESOME friendly people I have here!Thanks friends for all the positive influence you have in my life. Just by being YOU , each has helped me to grow a voice, a very strong voice of DEBRA~ Healing~ recheck my motto which IS 8 or 10 months old.... sometime (always) God makes us smarter THAN we are reread to see.... HE places PEOPLE turned HUMAN into our lives because WE KNOW that GOD does NOT LIE. We follow the rules EVEN WHEN we are bonked by baddies... BUT even the bad guys ARE PART of HIS plan to PRESS ON the warriors HE has GROOMED. WOW, tell YOUR MOM "THANK YOU" for what ever NICE thing she did for you when you stayed home sick as a kid... this tells her she matters.
Tell YOUR SPOUSE that THIS IS a new DAY~ that THEY matter ,
Tell a stranger that is having a "moment" they matter.... Just by being a Deb~ YOU ALL tell me I matter. WOW.
THANK YOU WWW, and Steuben County for helping THIS NIagara County escapee,
THANK YOU GOD for placing people where YOU needed them to help along this tough chick that COULD NOT trust others...BUT LOVES all people anyways!
THANK YOU GOD for a world where NO ONE cares so THEY don't TRY anymore....
FOR KEEPING us LOUD and building us up so THAT WE MAY build YOUR HARVEST...... WATCH a scrooge movie again people, that warm fuzzy you feel on the surface? It GETS "biGGER" when YOU watch with Christian eyes... mmmm.
MY whole life IS HEAVEN on EARTH because GOD NEVER LIED . Stay tuned for further updates as i have time/energy.
Ponder this tho'... The Easter BUNNY and SANTA were BROUGHT to YOU by A CHRISTIAN that did NOT want to scare their kids with the REAL TRUTH.... setting into place a TIME and season of GROOMING children into tradition... So as NOT TO SCARE the children off of GOD!!!! AH, Glad to finally SAY THAT OUT LOUD. PEOPLE being people... took advantage of THE CHRISTIAN gifts of Mr.Bunny and Mr.SANTA and made it a MONEY maker. Go figure...people being PEOPLE.(c:
Bobby says its because NO KID wants to HEAR about the "EASTER ZOMBIE" who would wanna follow a God that KILLS people? LOL, THANK YOU GOD for the view of a child that SEES with CHRISTIAN wisdom..well, actually 2 of THEM.
SEE U ALL soon, off to trust doctors again, if they goof and do NOT do the right thing then it will be the F O U R T H time I have needed major surgeries to repair their neglect. BUT! GOD being such a trickster, HE told ME, TRUST your sisters to do the right thing, I said okay you funny guy , YOU KNOOOW where THAT got me LAST time.... but YOU ARE STILL GOD and Gave THIS DEBRA back to DEBBIE! WOW.

PRAISE GOD, YOU BETCHYA!
My motto:
One positive voice making a difference, MANY positive voices joined TOGETHER making CHANGES. ONE heart at a time. Debra Zurenda A.

Kevin's run on the snowmobile was not on a trail but in a controlled enviroment in a field.

We promote safe riding at all times-every death is one of our own and we feel strongly that any time spent preventing another death is time well spent.
