Welcome to Great Lakes Ice Racing

Great Lakes Ice Racers

A call out to all ice racers,


Update: 2.27.19


Great Lakes Ice Racing would like to invite any and all ice racers, from anywhere and everywhere to come to Escanaba, and compete in our 8 th annual Open Invitational Ice Race. The format has changed this year, from a night race to a day race. With the outrageous weather pattern we have seen this year, track conditions are not permissive of racing at night. What hasn’t changed you ask? The purse baby!


The three big open classes, open bike, open studded quad, & open unstudded quad pay $500.00 to win! Provided they are full classes, a definition of full a full class is…10 riders per class. As always it’s 100% payback for all other pay classes, Trophies will be awarded for non-pay classes. The schedule of events is as follows: 


Registration: 10:00am Practice: High Noon Riders Mtg: 1:30pm Racing Begins: 2:00pm.


This is a non-points paying race, which provides racers the opportunity to go for the money without risk of losing points. This always makes for very exciting races. It is a double header weekend with racing on Sunday as well. 


Sunday’s races will be normal race procedure and is our final points paying race. 


All racers from Saturday are invited to race with us on Sunday. Following Saturday’s races, we will be holding an after race party, in the Pub, at the Magnuson Grand Pioneer Inn &  Suites. 


Free horse’durvies compliments of the club and the Pioneer. 


The Magnuson Pioneer Inn will be offering a racer’s rate of $65.00 both Friday & Saturday for anyone choosing to stay the nights. Just call and ask for the racer’s rate, (906)786-0602. Trophy awards presentation will be on Sunday at riders meeting, because of time

constraints on Saturday. As I have always said “The greatest club on the planet!’’ Spread the word and let’s make this weekend a safe and enjoyable event for everyone. So, if you think you got what it takes, you don’t want to miss this one, you have to beat the best, to be the best. With that, I’ll see you on the river!


Thanks, Peanut
