For Immediate Release:

The International Ice Racing Association is pleased to introduce a new, easy, way to enjoy our top notch tracks: IceCross. IIRA, well known for our wheel-to-wheel racing series, and beginner open track time programs; IIRA will now host IceCross. IceCross is an exciting and easy way to get out on the lake and race your car! The IceCross program will look and function much like a traditional autocross, but will take place on the IIRA’s ice race track. Cars will be sent one at a time, to lay down a time, and the fastest time in each class will win. Classes will allow almost any car to compete, with both studded and regular winter tire classes, split by drive configuration. This form of competition does not require a cage, or a racing suit, your car just needs to pass a basic safety inspection, have a good 2010+ SNELL rated helmet, and you are good to go on the ice!

So what is Open Track Racing

Open Track Racing is the newest addition to the IIRA, allowing STOCK "Regular" street cars to come out and drive on the same road course style race track as the Spec Stud cars race on, but you will be driving at alternating times in between the regular studded/Caged races ! 

It is a class that allows stock "Regular" cars with or without a roll cages to come out and drive out on the continuas road course . NO ROLL CAGE OR STUDDED TIRE REQUIRE....NOT REQUIRED

Helmet and seat belts are required....

You are allowed to have studded or winter tire also, they would help the with the fun factor BUT ARE NOT required

Open Track series will be in between our Studded/Caged race class usually every other half hour when the studded/Roll caged cars are not racing on the track. Call if you -have questions 507-420-8777 or message us.

I feel very fortunate and am very grateful to be a part of the IIRA. I have met some wonderful people, and a few odd ones, as being a part of this group, and learned so much about cars, racing and myself. It is a great family group that cares about getting people out there racing, being safe and having fun. I have had the opportunity to be able to have my two daughters racing with me, as well as having my wife come along to races. many other teams have also have made these weekends family events. WE are always looking for pictures and video of past racing events

Look forward to seeing you THIS year on the ice.
