  • Ice Racing Promotion

    Hey Ice Racers:

    I have been blogging about amateur motorsports at www.wheelstalk.com for over a year now. The topic this week is Ice Racing. I hope that this gives some exposure for Ice Racing. Wheelstalk.com is owned by Metroland Newspapers and is the online version of part of their local community newspapers. Sometimes the online articles get published locally in print.

    Please feel free to comment online as that helps to build the blog.

    Happy Ice Racing!

    I posted a comment this morning on your blog. Awaiting judgement before it goes live. Thanks for doing this John. It is a great hobby and it results in much more than the great memories we make over the annual 6 week racing series.

              It makes it more aerodynamic!! There ARE other ways to do it but they carry a bit more risk. :0

                        We have a subscription to the Times and they report every year on the Ice Racing series. PRN also had an article in the last issue - toward the back - on this and had an estimated value to the local economy of somewhere in the neighbourhood of $600,000.

                            I e-mailed Rick Lowes from 93.5 The Moose and he said that he will anounce the event on air!
