Fireball Race Series 2018

The Fireball Race Series, sponsored by Amoskeag Beverage featuring Sam Adams, is an 8-week race league for adults 21 and up. Races are held from 5:30pm - 7:30pm on Friday nights starting January 5, 2018 and ending March 2, 2018. At the end of the season, an awards ceremony and banquet will be held for the participating teams. Each team will be comprised of five members with all five members eligible to race and earn points weekly. Male and female racers will not be scored separately as this is a co-ed series.

Teams do not need alternates. Singles are permitted at $65 per person for the season. If a team member is unable to attend a race, he/she may be replaced with a substitute. A substitute may be any skier/rider on any given day. An individual may substitute for different teams on different weeks. The team captain must notify the race committee that there will be a substitute needed, and the racer's bib number the substitute will be replacing.

Thanks for a great racing season and we look forward to seeing everyone next year! Click here for the 2018 Fireball Race Series Final Results.
