Ice racing takes place on frozen lakes or rivers, groomed frozen lots, or dirt tracks turned to an icy surface by spraying water on them when the temperature is below freezing and letting it freeze. This is not a sport for the faint hearted! Then there is the indoor ice arena racing which is the loudest excitement every on a skating rink. Ice racing fans enjoy the fast action and spectacular crashes
Motorcycle ice racing started in Scandinavia in the 1930s and has spread to other temperate-climate countries. There's nothing like the adrenaline rush you get when you're in a race, going up to 60 mph without brakes on steel studded tires.
Tracks usually are a ¼ mile oval. Converted dirt tracks and road courses can be 6 hour and 24-hour events. AMA Sports offers a national championship ice-racing event every January.
