What is Ice Racing?
The International Ice Racing Association (IIRA) has a long history of conducting car racing events on plowed courses on frozen lakes. Studded racing tires are used in the fastest classes to provide the cars with a surprising amount of grip on the ice.
Currently, all the events are based in Minnesota.
Many Ways to Participate!
Multiple cars on track competing wheel-to-wheel in races lasting several laps (15-30 min)
Studded tires only
Minimum car prep includes 6 point roll cages, racing harness, working lights and wipers. See rules for complete list of requirements
Open Track, no timers, come have fun and learn to drive on the ice.
Studded or non-studded tires
Street legal cars eligible
We need help!
