Snocross racing will return to North Adams this winter and be expanded with the development of a practice track.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — More snocross racing will occur at The Range on Curran Highway this winter as well as practice runs beginning this fall.

Range owner David Bond said the weekend event this past February brought in thousands of snocross racers and audiences, and an estimated $300,000 was spent in the city.

The potential for the sport in North Adams has been cemented with the purchase of East Coast Snocross by Clarksburg resident Kurt Gagne, owner of Gagne Mechanical Corp.

"His idea is to create a practice track, there isn't a place for these teams ... to

Tanglewood is offering more food choices for patrons — a lot of it locally sourced — beyond the traditional bring-your-own picnics. Left, fixings from the salad bar at the Cafe.

LENOX, Mass. — We go to Tanglewood for the best music of the summer. Many listeners come with picnics in tow but our dining expectations for the prepared food Tanglewood offers may not be so high.

Time was, a local baker or caterer would be contracted to bake giant chocolate chip cookies for that summer. Or, big chocolate brownies another summer. That was when we were lucky.

Times have changed.

In addition to fine dining for donors at Seranak, on the hill overlooking Tanglewood; and fine dining,

WEST LEBANON, N.Y. — Three Berkshire County drivers figure to be in the mix on Thursday, Aug. 14, when the Mr. Dirt Track USA tour makes its annual stop at Lebanon Valley Speedway.

The event is part of the Super Dirtcar Series that kicks off each February in Florida and ends up back below the Mason-Dixon Line at the Dirt Track of Charlotte in North Carolina in November.   The Lebanon Valley stop is always one of the highlights of the track's season and certainly one of the richest nights.   "It pays $17,500 for the winner ... and pays all the way back to, I guess, $300 or $500 for the last spot," Lebanon Valley owner/promoter Howard Commander said this week.

The Berkshire Regional Planning Commission held a hearing last week on the potential for passenger rail to New York City.
