The races support the charity Flip’s Fund, inspired by Owner Ralph Merwin’s son Phillip “Flip” Merwin who lost his life while snowmobile racing in 2003. Since Flip’s passing, Flip’s Fund has raised over $300,000 and given it away to local causes, according to Ralph.

The money is used to help a variety of causes including children with illnesses, scholarships, the Lions Club, and Boy Scouts.

The track is located at 145025 Co. Hwy. NN in Wausau.

The Wausau 525 track is reachable by sled on the Marathon County Snowmobile Trail Map in Zone 4, marked as location #74, between intersection #356 & #358. There is snowmobile parking onsite. Riders get $2 off your gate admission when you arrive by snowmobile.
