AMA Ice Race Grand Championship Schedule
The Pickerington, Ohio based AMA says that "America's finest motorcycle ice racers will have two opportunities to compete for AMA No. 1 plates in 2021, with AMA Ice Race Grand Championship events scheduled three weeks apart in January and February in Wisconsin."
The first event is a Grand Prix-style competition on January 17 that will run in conjunction with the Steel Shoe Fund's annual three-hour endurance race on Kettle Moraine Lake at the Tiki Beach Bar and Resort in Campbellsport, Wisconsin. The course once again will be designed by AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Jeff Fredette.

Chris DaRonco, the event promoter, said: "We look forward to providing a challenging 6-plus mile course on Kettle Moraine Lake. We're working on some exciting changes to our program to make the event better than last year and to comply with any state and local orders regarding COVID-19. We look forward to hosting riders from all over and awarding those highly coveted AMA National No. 1 plates."
The Steel Shoe Fund was established in 1997 as a non-profit organization to assist flat track motorcycle racers who have been seriously injured during competition within the continental United States.
The second event, the High Voltage Ice Races, takes place February 6 on a half-mile oval at Miller's Bay in Oshkosh, Wisconsin - the second year that the High Voltage Ice Races will be sanctioned as an AMA Grand Championship.
The event is organized by Ron Brefka of iRon Enterprises, and proceeds go to support pancreatic cancer research. There is no admission fee for spectators, but donations to the We Care Fund are encouraged.
Brefka said: "We again will have spectacular ice racing at a great venue. And while our Grand Championship will be an absolutely great event for racers and spectators, we also will be supporting cancer research with donations to the We Care Fund for Medical Innovation and Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin."
The events will be scored separately, and class winners at each event will be awarded AMA National No. 1 plates.
