MIDWEST ICE RACING ASSOCIATION

2018 Season!!

Thank to everyone for braving the elements 2 weeks in a row!  Next race January 27th at Barkers Island as part of the Ice Festival!

Points are posted!  As part of the Ice Festival there is a lot going on from kids slide, ice scultures, crafts and characters.  It will be a great weekend of activities come check it out!  Our awards banquet will be in a heated tent on the festival grounds.  There are fireworks planned for 7 pm so dress warm and plan on a day outdoors 🙂

Thank you to all whom purchased a square on the raffle for Brian Markel.  MIRA is helping Brian to raise money for a new handicap accessible vehicle.  Brian was in a 4-wheel accident back in 2005 that left him in a wheelchair.  We will be having another raffle in Superior and then at the finals again.  This raffle gave away some good prizes:  VP gas can won by Tevin Liimatained, goggles won by Brody Srsen and an FXR helmet won by Denny Almer (who donated it back for the next raffle).

The next race has a lot going on from the Ice Festival to a $1500 purse in the Quad A Class “King of the Quad Race” sponsored by Brockstar Racing, Mattson Rentals, Santtiko logging, Mains lawn service, MIRA.  There will be wild cards prizes and door prizes.  Tell all your Quad friends to come race.

We will have 3 back to back races!  Whew!  There are lots of hotels in Superior.  The race in Hayward is on Round Lake – Grand Pines Resort has cabins within walking distance of Props Landing or a motel a less than a mile away.  Then off to Eddy’s Resort on Lake Mille Lacs, stay at Eddy’s or the Casino about a mile away.

Please check out our sponsor page, we have a lot of new sponsors this year … Kivi bros Trucking, Marty & Gina’s, Props Landing, Crust Construction are just a few.  Not to mention all our loyal sponsors that have supported us from the beginning!  We could not put on these events without their help!  So check out our sponsors – visit their business and let them know you appreciate their support.

Any changes to the schedule will be posted here and on Facebook.  We are starting an email distribution list for race information, if you would like to be on that list please either send us an email or message on FB.

As always if you have any questions or comments you can email us at midwesticeracing@gmail.com  or on Facebook.

We have made some changes to our rules, chest protectors are mandatory for all classes except mini’s and unstudded.  It is recommended the you have all the protective gear possible we do not want any serious injures.  Goggles and helmets are mandatory in all classes and motocross boots are recommended.

We would like to remind everyone that number plates must be visible from the scorers point of view or you are at risk of not being scored. Thank you!

We will not have membership fees this year.  We will have one throw away race for the season!  Below is the schedule, we are hopeful that we will get all the races in and don’t have to adjust the schedule.  Make sure to book your rooms early!

2018 Schedule:

We are always looking for sponsors to help fund the race event, if you know of anyone interested in sponsoring please post on our Facebook page.  Without the generosity of our sponsors we could not put on a quality race event with the payouts that are being awarded.

Thanks again to everyone!!! Looking for to another great season!!
