As the 2015 Western Canadian Snow Drags Championships take off, the Museum is proud to once again be hosting one of the largest snowmobile races of the year as racers from across western Canada will gather at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum Feb. 21-22 to compete for more than $12,000 in cash prizes.
The race experience offered at the museum is exceptional with a lot to see and do both outside at the track or inside the Museum. It’s the perfect event for a family day!
In 2014, there were 118 sleds racing in 300 heats at the Wetaskiwin Snow Drags and $13,000 in cash prizes handed out at the end of the day.

Competitors can pre-register online until Friday, February 20 or register on race day from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. with races starting at noon.
