2012 AMA Ice Race Grand Championships

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and event promoter North American Action Sports (NAAS) have announced a new date and venue for the 2012 AMA Ice Race Grand Championships, which will crown the AMA’s first amateur champions of the year.

The amateur championship event will take place Feb. 4-5 at the Sugarbush Golf and Country Club with racing to take place on Potters Lake in Davison, Mich.

Joe Bromley (AMA Director of Racing) says: “Motorcycle competition is as diverse as it is exciting, and that is no more apparent than at the AMA Ice Race Grand Championships. We’re looking forward to once again working with NAAS to provide a national-championship program to this country’s top ice racers.”

The AMA Ice Race Grand Championships feature 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. 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.

Patrick Grzebinski (NAAS) says: “Everyone at NAAS is looking forward to one of our most exciting events of the year. Last year, everyone had a great time, and the racing was spectacular. We can’t wait for Feb. 4-5 when we can kick off the 2012 racing season in style.”

A rain-out date is schedule for the following weekend in case weather doesn’t cooperate with the original Feb. 4-5 date.

Patrick Grzebinski says: “While the racers are the reason for the AMA Ice Race Grand Championships, this family event truly has something for everyone. The Sugarbush Golf and Country Club provides the perfect location to combine racing with casual fun and dining.”
