The second of eight rounds on the 2018-19 AMSOIL Snocross Championship calendar sees racers head to Jackson, Wyoming for the Jackson Hole Snocross National at Snow King Mountain. A wide open field in the headlining Pro class will compete at the highest elevation course in the series, situated over a mile above sea level.

The second annual event at Snow King will see a brand new winner at the Pro level, as the retired Tucker Hibbert swept both of last year’s main events. But judging by what went down in Duluth two weekends ago, who will take his step atop the podium is anyone’s guess.

Adam Renheim opened the season with a victory in the head-to-head AMSOIL Dominator event from Spirit Mountain, taking the $10,000 winner’s check in the non-points event. However, it was Elias Ishoel and Lincoln Lemieux who split the two race rounds on Saturday and Sunday, earning themselves the top two spots in the standings coming into Wyoming. 2016-17 Pro champion Kody Kamm sits tied for second in the standings with Lemieux, just two points back of leader Ishoel; Renheim and teammate Tim Tremblay complete the top five, with Pro rookie Daniel Benham just behind them in sixth.

Streaming from the Jackson Hole Snocross National at Snow King Mountain will kick off on Friday at 3:40PM ET and Saturday at noon ET. The event will air on television on the CBS Sports Network at a later date. The series takes a month-long break after this weekend, resuming the eight-event championship schedule on January 4-5 at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota.
