Herfindahl Wins Goodridge/Grygla 500February 12, 2019Fertile, MN (February 11, 2019) - The Winnipeg to St. Paul I-500 is a legendary race in the world of snowmobiling. It was perhaps the first big money, big exposure race to enter the sport. It captured the essence of snowmobiling - traveling cross-country in the dead of winter, a task no other vehicle on earth was equipped to handle. This year's famed 500 took place February 9-10, around the Northern Minnesota towns of Goodridge and Grygla, where volunteers from the local snowmobile club and community took it upon themselves to make sure the 500 got its due in 2019. The two-day race featured a loop format, with a 250-mile run and multiple fuel stops each day, and a home base of Goodridge. The course was made up of the terrain that has defined the race including woods, river, ditch and fields.
