2024 AMA Ice Race Grand Championship GP and Oval Events Scheduled for Jan. 21, Feb. 10

The annual event returns to Fond Du Lac, Wis., after 2023 cancellation

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Nov. 9, 2023) — After an added year of anticipation due to last year’s cancellation, the AMA Ice Race Grand Championship GP and Oval events are set to make a return in 2024, with the GP set for Jan. 21 and the Oval for Feb. 10 at Lake Winnebago in Fond Du Lac, Wis.

“We have eagerly awaited the return of the AMA Ice Race Grand Championship after the weather failed to cooperate with us last winter,” AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant said. “This event was sorely missed from our schedule last year, and we hope the weather holds up so we can crown new ice racing national champions in 2024.”

The AMA Ice Race Grand Championships are the only amateur ice racing opportunities in which a racer can earn an AMA National No. 1 plate. Not only will AMA No. 1 plates be on the line, but racers will also compete for the AMA Ice Racer of the Year, AMA Vet/Senior Ice Racer of the Year and AMA Youth Racer of the Year.

The GP event will run alongside the Steel Shoe Fund 3 Hour Endurance Race, an annual endurance ice event that serves as the main fundraiser for the Steel Shoe Fund — a non-profit organization that assists flat track racers who have sustained serious injury during competition. In the event of a cancellation, the GP event will have a makeup date of Jan. 28.

“We are thrilled to once again host the AMA Ice Race Grand Championship GP in conjunction with the Steel Shoe Fund 3 Hour Endurance Race on Jan. 21, 2024, as well as the Oval on Feb. 10 on Lake Winnebago,” event promoter Chris DaRonco said. “My team is ready for the challenge and hope Mother Nature allows us to hold the event this year to determine National Championships in Ice Racing.”
