The best of the best lined up to do battle for the 1977 Eagle River World Championship. If you read the story of this race in Starfire Kids – Midnight Blue Express, you may well agree it was one of the best races ever at the famed track.

Left to right: Jerry Bunke (Just out of sight) Jerry’s mechanic and friend Jomar Bernat, Greg Hedlund and Brad Hulings. Staring at the Starfire Kids logo is Ski-Doo driver Ed Schubitzke, and you can just barely see the winning sled of Steve Thorsen on the far right.
