BANGORThe Paul Bunyan Snocross, a snowmobile competition that premiered last year at Bangor's Bass Park, will return to Bangor on Jan. 30-31, 2016.

Inaugurated and hosted by the Eastern Maine Community College Foundation, in association with East Coast Snocross (ECS) and with support from Dysart's, the weekend competition will feature pro and semi-pro races, as well as trail class races for recreational sledders.

Last year's event drew a crowd of nearly 6,000 over two days to watch high-speed races laden with bumps and jumps. Proceeds benefitted the Eastern Maine Community College Foundation, which manages over 50 scholarship funds to support EMCC students.

"This event was very well-received by the entire community last year, and served as a great winter-time fundraiser for the Foundation," EMCC Foundation spokeswoman Jennifer Khavari said. "We're pleased to bring the high-flying action of Snocross back to Bangor in 2016, and appreciate the strong support local partners like Dysarts and Darling's Auto have provided.'

Weekend passes are available for $20 and day passes for $15. Children 7 and under are admitted for free. They can be purchased at the gate the day of the event.

Members of the media are invited to a preview of the Paul Bunyan Snocross on Thursday, Jan. 27, 10 a.m. at Bass Park in Bangor.

East Coast Snocross is an ISR-affiliated sanctioning body for snowmobile racing in the northeastern United States. ECS maintains a regional circuit intended to keep grass-roots Snocross racing healthy in this part of the country, while also cultivating new talent for tomorrow's factory-backed pro teams.

The Eastern Maine Community College Foundation promotes, encourages and supports, financial or otherwise, all educational activities at EMCC, a two-year institution that provides technical, career and transfer education to over 2,700 students each year.
