Ken Remer has been a successful competitor in the World Championship ICE Racing Series for the past six years. He is also a professional stuntman, most recently working on the popular television series Chicago Fire. Ken is promising spectacular special attractions for future ICE shows to enhance the Fire On ICE side of the events.

Kristi Remer has a strong professional business and marketing background on her résumé, which she plans to immediately put into practice with ICE.

As part of the sales agreement, the original founder and former CEO of ICE, Gary Densford, along with Brent Densford, will stay on for the foreseeable future in event advisory and off-site consulting capacities.

“We couldn’t be happier with who bought our business,” said Gary Densford. “The Remers have their heart and soul in it, and, along with their enthusiasm, ambition, commitment and the fresh new approach that they bring to the table, I believe the property is headed upward to the next level and beyond. The ICE winter tradition will hopefully continue on for at least another 40 years!”

The new owners are planning a 10-event series for their inaugural season. The 41st annual World Championship ICE Racing Series is scheduled to run from December of 2016 through March of 2017.
