The 45th annual running of the I-500 snowmobile race happened Saturday in Sault Ste. Marie.

Before drivers could take to the track for the big race, they had to first qualify by participating in the time trials.

Last week on Thursday, Photojournalist Stephanie Adkins watched as dozens of sleds clocked in at speeds of nearly 105 miles per hour.

This year's race was cut short because of snow dust and safety concerns, and Gabe Bunke, of Bunke Racing won for the second year in a row.
