For the second straight year, the Holiday Inn in Detroit Lakes is playing host to a major cross country snowmobile race.

The J&K Marine Beach Bar 200 returns to the ice of Big Detroit Lake this Saturday, Jan. 5, for a full day of racing, starting at 8:30 a.m.


Though it's the second annual event, there is at least one big change to this year's format, said race organizer Brian Nelson of the U.S. X-Country (USXC) Snowmobile Racing Association.
