2007 AMA National Ice Racing Championships - Location Change

AMA SportAppleton, WI – Unseasonably warm weather is again blanketing the upper Midwest. “If there was one thing we learned from losing the National to poor weather conditions in 2006, it was to have a good contingency plan in place for the “2007 AMA National Ice Racing Championships.” Ice conditions at Waverly Beach in Menasha are simply non-existent and making an early decision to move the National gives organizers plenty of time to resolve logistic issues and give racers time to plan ahead. The new location, Barnum Bay Marina in Nekoosa, Wisconsin is ideal for race conditions. For the overall event with the Powersports show tie-in, Waverly Beach was the place to be; but with just racing in mind, the new location in Nekoosa, Wisconsin has everything needed to facilitate a first-class National event. Only the location is changing, the scheduled weekend remains the same, February 3-4, 2007.

The new site offers expansive on-shore parking and ice that literally sits on the bottom of the lake bed. There is a HUGE sandbar at this location. This is the best possible situation to being on an actual land based flooded track. “The Lure” located at the Barnum Bay Marina is a top notch establishment that provides participants and attendees a warm place to eat, relax and refresh themselves over the two-day National Event weekend on February 3-4, 2007. View the new location at www.barnumbaymarina.com

We’re actually excited about the move – the Nekoosa location gives us a lot more control over the racetrack area. Best of all, this location has an impressive start on the ice needed for the event. If racers haven’t made plans yet, now is the time – pre-registration will be available at www.FantasyMoto.com starting January 3rd. Updated hotel and lodging information, as well as directions, will be available on Wednesday, January 3rd on the same site.

Our confidence level on pulling the National together has skyrocketed after touring the Nekoosa facility. This move provides us time to reorganize our sponsorship opportunities – just today we were able to put the finishing touches on a deal with Janssen Motorsports that will allow us to offer a “Quad Shootout” in addition to the typical “Kold Kutter Shootouts” for the bike racers. The “Janssen Motorsports Quad Shootout” will feature a $1000 minimum cash purse for ATV racers. Couple that with the $2500 “Kold Kutter Shootouts” for bikes and we have a $3500 purse. But….it gets even better – Action Awards in Appleton, Wisconsin is adding another $1500 in cash to the overall event purse that will get split proportionately between the two “Kold Kutter Shootouts” for bikes and the “Janssen Motorsports Quad Shootout” for a total event purse of $5000!
