X-treme Ice Racing on Friday, March 13, 2009. The AMA Pro Tour will be holding its 9th round of its sixth annual championship indoor ice racing series at the EnCana Events Centre. The series features lightening quick Speedway Motorcycles and ATV racing on a thick oval track of ice. Top professional riders from England, Scotland, Canada, and the United States in two professional divisions will be competing for National Championship titles. The event also features an amateur quad division, showcasing local ATV riders who join XiiR for one night of pure adrenaline.
The speedway motorcycles are very lightweight, volatile machines that resemble mountain bikes with large powerful engines burning on nitro methane fuel. What separates the bikes from other forms of racing is the NO BRAKES ALLOWED rule.
The Quad division features highly modified ATVs built and prepared specifically for oval track ice racing. Any engine or chassis configuration is allowed as long as the machine is rear-wheel driven and no wider than 52 inches at any point. Wild machines seen nowhere else and crazy bump-and-grind action are the trademarks of the XiiR/ AMA quad racing.
Don?t miss the chance to support your local ATV riders who will have a chance to mix it up with the pros and capture the reward from SuperTrapp Industries Dash 4 Cash! This $500 reward challenges any local quad racer who can compete against the XiiR Quad Roster and win the main event.
All machines are equipped with razor sharp steel studded tires and are capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds! Visualize all this inside the tight confines of an ice hockey rink and you just may be close to imagining the thrill of this X-treme winter motorsport. In two hours fans will see up to 20 exciting races to determine event champions. Racers will earn valuable championship points towards the sport?s most prestigious title; the 2009 XiiR/AMA National Ice Racing Champion.
