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.

 2024 EVENT UPDATE

The IIRA has put a lot of effort into attempting to host an event in the abnormally warm 2024 winter season. Unfortunately, ice conditions on lakes have not been safe enough to host a racing event. Just like other ice racing clubs even further north of us, we haven't been able to find safe ice and are canceling the 2024 season. However, we are looking forward to hosting a get together for all members and anybody else interested this spring. Stay tuned for more details on this page, our facebook pages, and our email list. We are also planning on attending various car shows and other events during the off-season to promote the 2025 events. Many of our members are open and willing to help anyone who is interested in preparing a car to get in on the ice racing fun!

Official event calendar will be on MotorsportReg for 2024. Actual dates and locations will vary depending on ice conditions.

Tentative dates are scheduled as follows:

January 20-21 Cancelled due to not enough ice

January 27-28 Cancelled due to not enough ice / warm temperatures

February 3-4 Cancelled due to not enough ice / warm temperatures

February 10-11  Cancelled due to not enough ice / warm temperatures

February 17-18  Cancelled due to not enough ice / warm temperatures

February 24-25 Cancelled due to not enough ice / warm temperatures

March 2-3 Cancelled due to not enough ice / warm temperatures
