Racing legend Frans Rosenquist named Grand Marshall for Sprint World Cup

The Ice Oval Sprint World Cup (SWC) being held in Wausau January 27-29 has confirmed the attendance of Frans Rosenquist for the weekend. With the tag line, “Legends honored. Legends Made”, the SWC is making a concerted effort to honor the pioneers in the sport of sprint oval snowmobile racing while at the same time, running a premier race sought after by the current field of drivers.

The racing career of Frans Rosenquist spans nearly 20 years. Over those years, Frans raced most every brand. He qualified for the World Championship 6 different times, including in 1979, when he ran a Polaris with a Rotax motor and finished 4 th. Over his career, Frans earned the #1 bib in ASA, the #1 bib in USSA and won the Adema Cup in 1977.

Frans will make the trek from Minnesota to spend the weekend with fans and racers at the Wausau, Wisconsin facility. During the weekend, Frans will be doing interviews, signing autographs and he will be on track for Sunday’s final of the Ice Oval Sprint World Cup. The SWC traveling trophy will be presented by Frans to the Cup winner. The engraved plate will read: 2023 Winner: (insert name), presented by Frans Rosenquist. In future years, the SWC will work with a new racing legend and honor them on the weekend culminating with the SWC trophy winner presentation.
