About Us

stevePublisher Steve Landon has been active in snowmobiling since 1970 when his family purchased       his first snowmobile at the age of 12, a 1971 Yamaha SL338B. In addition to snowmobiling Steve has been a boater, ATV rider, hunter who truly loves the outdoors.

Steve’s love for snowmobile racing developed while attending a local race back in the early 1970’s. Hooked on the sport he set his goal on attending the Soo I-500. While standing on the hillside watching the race in 1975 he realized the press had it pretty good, it was at that moment he decided to become a member of the snowmobile racing media – through the years Steve has also maintained a historical and pictorial archive of events he has covered – the rest is history. Since those early days Steve has written for several publications. Many of his photos have appeared on ads, posters, fliers and numerous promotions.

Back in the late 70’s it was not uncommon to see guys involved in the sport bring several different girlfriends to the races – the old saying used to be if you could get a girl to attend more than one race – you better marry her.

In 1980 Steve’s girlfriend Sherry attend the Alpena Thunder Bay 250, her first race and the Soo I-500. In July of that year Steve and Sherry were married. During those early years Sherry would take Steve’s notes while watching the race from the press box, she also tagged along toting his camera bag while he headed to some remote area of the track to take pictures.
