WINTON - Snowmobile oval ice racing returned to the Ely area last Saturday with the season opener of the Kids Championship Power Racing Organization. Events were held on Fall Lake at the Ely-Winton Rod and Gun Club’s Longbranch for kids ages four to 14 and competing in 11 different classes.
The event for youth racers and their families was limited by public health protocols due to the coronavirus pandemic so few spectators were allowed.
The Kids Championship Power Racing Organization, or KCPRO, originated in 1987 in Thief River Falls. At that time, the club consisted of about 20 race families traveling from the Iron Range to Thief River Falls.
Because travel was so widespread, in 1991 the club opted to divide into East and West divisions. This prompted the official creation of KCPRO-East, a non-profit youth ice racing organization.
