I was perusing the race schedule, and either I'm having a brain cramp or there's no Exxon Mobil sprint race in AK this year. Any info?

The ASDRA Championships are this weekend, I guess that is equivalent to the Exxon Mobil...I don't have any inside information but I'm guessing Exxon Mobil chose not to sponsor the race. With the downturn in the oil industry, there a fewer sponsorship dollars available from the big guys. It's certainly not a snow issue; there is abundant snow at the Tudor Track in Anchorage this year and ASRA is running their full schedule of races. Rondy is a "go" with lots of teams entered to chase after the $100K purse.

Thanks, Chuck. I knew Anchorage had snow, but am bummed out that the same can't be said for *all* of AK's trails...while I'll be up for the Rondy and the Iditarod, my plans received an unexpected twist last nite when I found out about the Restart being in Fairbanks again.

But anyway, now that I know the ASDRA championship is equivalent, I'll keep an eye on it.
