AMA Amateur National Ice Racing ChampionshipsThursday, November 3, 2005 | 12:22 PM
Menasha, WI - Fantasy Moto will be hosting it's first ever AMA
National Championship event as the 2006 AMA Amateur National Ice Racing
Championships roll into Waverly Beach in Menasha, Wisconsin on January
Promoting a true National Championship has been a goal of the company since our conception back in 1998. Although an ice race was not our initial thought for promoting a championship, we feel it is a great opportunity, which through hard work and efforts could present us with the opportunity to promote ATV Nationals. The heart of Fantasy Moto is to provide racers with the ultimate riding experience and rewards, just as we would want if we were racing ourselves. This basic principle has served our clientele and has provided an outlet for growth throughout the past 7 years.
The Kold Kutter Shootout will return in 2006 with a guaranteed purse of $2500 plus 100% of the entry fees for that class.
Waverly Beach is a Mecca of activity in the winter months with on-shore facilities that are second to none. There has always been a practice track plowed near the shoreline. In fact, the 2005 60cc National Dirt-track Champion Jacob Cunningham and his father Matt maintained a track at Waverly Beach in 2004-2005 that helped Jacob sharpen his skills all winter long.
"It's amazing, the last time this race came to Wisconsin was in Eagle River a few years back. There were people from all over the country. In my opinion, ice racing is bigger than ever, especially with the success of the CWIRA (Central Wisconsin Ice Racing Association) circuit" states Joel Janssen of Janssen Racing.
Within the next few weeks, Fantasy Moto will be offering online pre-registration. The local Chamber of Commerce and Visitors and Conventions Bureau is also compiling a list of hotels that will offer discounted rates for event participants and spectators. All details for the race, including times, classes, prices, directions, entertainment attractions and lodging will be posted at www.fantasymoto.com in the upcoming weeks.
