CENTER CITY RACE IS SET

We got the official word from the Sheriff today that we are a go for Saturday. We will be parking on the ice as they reported 19" of ice. Please remember to fill out the track help sheet when you register, as we will not start racing till that is filled out. Also the fencing and signs need to be in place before any hotlaps can start, so please help out.

Track shaving fee will be $10 Per Racer.

This is only a Saturday race this weekend. The makeup race is being worked on as we speak, potentially being set for Sunday February 8th.

North Center Lake:

As you enter the lake, go North and head around the island. Stay to the right as we need to park on the West side of the track up by shore. I will be parked by the bridge on the South side of the track. Please stay to the right of my trailer as the CLACC has asked us to leave the East side open for viewing. Also we need to leave room between the board members trailers for the Tech area.

*** CANCELLED*** MAIDEN ROCK RACE***

Due to the conditions getting onto the ice and the amount of water in the area from the landing to the race spot the race will be cancelled. 

A make up race will be rescheduled (a Sunday race) as soon as possible for one of the two cancelled races. Potentially for Sunday February 1st at the earliest.

I do apologize for the late notice on this, but due to the ice conditions rapidly deteriorating over the last 12 hours this was the best decision for the safety of our kids, family, and visitors.

Series Tracker will refund this race.

MAIDEN ROCK UPDATE

As of now (5:00 PM) the race is in jeperady. A frost heave let loose today and is creating a wet/slushy area where the track and walkway would be located. A track move location will be needed which creates other challenges. 

Please check back shorly for an update.

** Maiden Rock Update **

The ice is between 12-14” and is very smooth under the snow cover. Our plan is to leave the track to be plowed until Friday to protect the ice during warm temps. There is a chance of  rain on Friday and we will monitor that. If need be, we will plow the track early Saturday if the rain looks potentially threatening on Friday to the track.

Chances of parking on the ice look low. There is plenty of parking at the access, and Mark has lined up four wheelers and snowmobile trailers to ferry sleds out on to the ice if need be. Please keep an eye on the website for updates. We will be checking the ice again tomorrow. We plan on plowing the track right next to the access if parking is not an option.
