2013 AMA Ice Race Grand Championships

The American Motorcyclist Association will crown the first amateur champions of 2013 at the Feb. 9-10 AMA Ice Race Grand Championships. This event, promoted by North American Action Sports LLC, will take place at the Mitchell State Park in Cadillac, Mich.

Ken Saillant (AMA Track Racing Manager) says: “The winter season is no reason for racers to shut down. In fact, this is when some of the most hard-core racers on the planet converge on the Ice Race Grand Championships. Once again, we’re excited to work with NAAS to provide a top-level program for our competitors.”

The AMA Racing Ice Race Grand Championships feature 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.

Rosanna Grezbinski (NAAS) says: “We are so excited to be hosting the 2013 AMA Ice Race Grand Championships. Awarding the first AMA Grand Championships of each season is always such an honor, and this year will be no exception. Come on out! The ice will be perfect!”
