Some of the toughest racers in American Motorcyclist Association amateur competition will line up at the Feb. 8-9 AMA Ice Race Grand Championship in Cadillac, Mich., to determine the first AMA national championships of the 2014 season.
The event, promoted by North American Action Sports LLC, will take place at the Mitchell State Park.
“The winter season isn’t the off season for everybody,” said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. “For many racers, January and February offer prime racing conditions with thick ice and plenty of competition to keep it fun and fast at the AMA Ice Race Grand Championship. We’re looking forward to working with NAAS to offer our racers another great event.”
The AMA Racing Ice Race Grand Championship features classes for riders from 4 years old to 50-plus competing on bikes ranging from lightly modified off-road machines to full-on, purpose-built ice racers. 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 Rider of the Year.
“We are excited to host the 2014 AMA Ice Race Grand Championship,” said Rosanna Grzebinski of NAAS. “The town of Cadillac is a great family-friendly location for this event, and you can bet there will be something for everybody to enjoy.”
