World Championship Ice Racing Series
Jan 23, 2016 | 7:00PM
The Gladiators of motorsports will square off at FORD CENTER for ROUND 2 of the 40TH ANNUAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ICE RACING SERIES Presented by Bud's Harley Davidson.
The world’s top ice racers will mount upon their highly modified, exotic state-of-the-art super cross motorcycles to battle it out on Ford Center's specially prepared solid ice race course. The word treacherous comes to mind. High speed thrills and spills guaranteed as these extreme athletes let it all hang out competing to win the Evansville Championship. Along with the gold and glory riders earn valuable World Championship Points towards the sport's most prestigious title - 40TH ICE RACING WORLD CHAMPION!
Also racing for their own World Championship Title will be the wild and wooly, always unpredictable ICE Pro Unlimited Outlaw Quads. These machines are definitely not your father's ATV from the farm. In this class of ice racing almost anything goes. In fact, there are only three basic technical rules. A "dead man" kill switch must be installed for when the rider and his machine become "separated" in a wreck; quads cannot exceed 50" in width at any point; and they must be rear wheels driven only, no 4-wheel drive.
Any chassis configuration, any engine make and displacement, any fuel, nitrous, razor sharp steel studded tires, 0-60MPH in less than 3 seconds, etc, etc. You get the picture - the guys are crazy!
Race fans will also see local riders competing in select ICE Amateur Classes. Most have never raced on ice in their life! To add even more to the excitement and fun Special Attractions are planned as well making for 2 1/2 hours of nonstop motorsports mayhem–!
