“The AMA ATV Ice Race Grand Championship features the country’s fastest Amateur ATV racers competing aboard highly modified, purpose-built machines that allow them to race on an oval course,” AMA track racing manager Ken Saillant explained. “The AMA is excited to team up with the Wausau 525 Group to host this year’s event and to award AMA National number-one plates to class winners.”

Racers will also be competing for two prestigious awards: AMA ATV Ice Racer or the Year, which honors the most impressive rider on the ice, and the AMA ATV Youth Ice Racer of the Year.

“Quad and motorcycle ice oval racing has a huge presence in our area,” said Cara Spatz, Wausau 525 Group operations director. “The Wausau 525 Group is thrilled to be teaming up with the AMA to bring a National ice event to the Wausau 525 Track and to be able to offer these racers their own, much-deserved event at our track.”

ATV ice racing in the Midwest is incredibly popular, particularly in Wisconsin.

“Some local racing groups trace their history back over 30 years, and it shows in the quality of the racers and level of innovation, particularly in the Unstudded [rubber-tired] classes,” said William Bell, race director for the Rib Mountain Riders Motorcycle Club. “The challenge for these riders will be to see how they compare to the best quad racers in the AMA on February 10. The Wausau 525 track is universally praised as the best anywhere, so all the racers are in for a red-hot weekend on the ice.”

The 2018 AMA Ice Race Grand Championship for motorcycle competitors will be held at a separate event in Cadillac, Michigan, February 2-4, 2018. More information on this event will be available soon.
