I-500 Qualifying Begins
The Soo Evening News reports that Unionville's Grant Vermeersch averaged almost 90 MPH in the first day of qualifying for the 38th annual I-500 snowmobile endurance race. Poor freezing conditions throughout January have significantly impeded efforts to build up the 12-18 inches of blue ice considered ideal for the Saturday's run.
