2018 AMA Ice Race Grand Championship dates announced

Event will feature oval track and grand prix races

AMA Press Release

PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Amateur ice racers from across the country will travel to Cadillac, Mich., to compete for AMA National Championships at the 2018 AMA Ice Race Grand Championship on Feb. 2-4.

"Each year, the AMA Ice Race Grand Championship hosts the country's fastest amateur ice racers in this event that is thrilling for participants and spectators, alike," AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant said. "After being unable to host last year's race due to inclement weather, we are pleased to be working with Jeremiah Sherman of Sherman Motorsports again in 2018 to provide AMA members with the best possible racing venue."

The AMA Ice Race Grand Championship features classes for riders from 4 years old to 50-plus competing on bikes that range from lightly modified off-road machines to full-on, purpose-built ice racers. Competitors modify a variety of machines to run on frozen lakes and ponds, using off-road tires, often studded with hundreds of sheet-metal-style screws.

Riders will battle for AMA National No. 1 plates in a number of classes. The top riders at the event also will compete for the AMA Ice Racer of the Year Award, given to the most impressive rider on the ice, while the youth riders will chase the honor of AMA Youth Ice Racer of the Year.

"The community is excited for the AMA Ice Race Grand Championship to make its return to the Cadillac area," Sherman said. "We will be working with the Cadillac Winter Festival in 2018. And we are hoping Mother Nature will cooperate with us for a spectacular weekend of racing."
