2017 AMA Ice Race Grand Championship to be rescheduled


PICKERINGTON, OH – February 13, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Due to weather conditions, the 2017 AMA Ice Race Grand Championship scheduled for Feb. 17-19 in Cadillac, Mich., has been rescheduled to Feb. 24-26.

Warmer than normal temperatures in northern Michigan have made racing conditions questionable. The AMA Ice Race Grand Championship has been rescheduled for the following weekend at the same location.
