Xtreme International Ice Racing @ Xfinity Arena {Everett, WA}

This past weekend, Team #77 Racing had the pleasure of racing on ice at Xfinity Arena in Everett, WA! Our family has participated in ICE Racing for 10+ years now – but this was our first year building entire classes sponsored by us ‘as a team’.

The kid’s class consisted of 7 riders for the night: Kaleah, Addy, Maybelline, Penelope, and AJ {all friends/family of Team #77 Racing} + Blake and another little gal.

Maybelline and Penelope had both raced on ice before. It was Addy’s first year racing a quad on dirt, and now on ice. It was also AJ’s first year racing on ice, but his second year racing his quad. And Kaleah, she is the dirt bike girl – so this was her first time EVER racing a quad. Such a fun group of kids!

The {un-studded} 3-wheeler class consisted of 6 riders: Painter Dan, Poppa Wheelie, Freakshow, Jeff, Travis, and Scott.

Poppa Wheelie had raced 3-wheelers on ice before, for several years – but never un-studded. Dan had just recently started racing his 3-wheeler on dirt. For Jeff, Scott, and Travis – it was the first time racing a 3-wheeler at all for them. They LITERALLY put on the best show of the night!

Everyone arrived to the track by 4pm, and got registered. We had a team dinner over at Buzz Inn, and made it back just in time for the riders meeting. Everything from there on seemed like a blur…as the kids’ quads and the 3-wheelers were racing ‘back-to-back’, and both had 2 heat races and one main.

This year, I was lucky enough to capture video of all 6 of the races that happened that night! Below are the race results and video…ENJOY!

A HUGE thank you to Xtreme International Ice Racing – XIIR for having the Team #77 Racing crew out to Xfinity Arena to race on the ice!

…until next year…
