North America's top professional motorcycle and quad racers are competing in this year's World Championship Chase. Riders from as far away as North Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kansas and elsewhere were in town to take on the best of the West.

All of the high powered machines are equipped with razor sharp steel studded tires, allowing for them to achieve incredible speeds on ice but also adding an element of danger not present in dirt track racing. Select Amateur Classes also competed, giving local racers a chance to compete in the spotlight, on ice, in front of their hometown fans.

Riders competed in Ice racing's two Professional Divisions: The lightning fast state-of-the-art Manufacturers World Cup Motorcycles and the wild and unpredictable ICE Unlimited Outlaw Quads (highly modified 4-wheel ATV's).
