Eighth annual Deadwood Snocross Showdown

The roar of finely-tuned snowmobiles and revved-up crowds return to Deadwood Jan. 24 – 25, 2020 for the 8th Annual U.S. Air Force Deadwood Snocross Showdown.

Deadwood's event has gained a name for itself as one of the most popular and skill-testing tracks in the eight-city AMSOIL Championship Snocross Tour, attracting top names in the professional snowmobiling world.

More than 150 of the top professional Snocross racers will descend on the historic town’s Deadwood Event Center (Days of ’76 Rodeo Grounds) for a weekend of high-flying, high-speed, high-octane snowmobile racing.

Pros like Logan Christian, Kyle Pallin, Kody Kamm, Elias Ishoel, Lincoln Lemieux and Megan Brodeur will race in the Deadwood Snocross Showdown.

The tight course features hairpin turns, soaring jumps, and break-neck speeds. More than 150 amateurs will also suit up for racing. The races will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.

Snocross tickets have historically been in high demand, and 2020 ticket sales are performing better than ever.

With previous years' events selling out, it is highly recommended to purchase tickets early. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 1-800-344-8826.
