On steel-studded tires to help them better traverse the frozen surface, motorcycles and highly modified ATVs zip around the rink in an attempt to speed past their competitors during ice racing’s yearly to-do: the 37th annual world championship. Riders culled from all corners of the United States gather at the ShoWare Center and Comcast Arena before spraying ice chips and dazzling spectators with high-octane excitement. Among the elite athletes competing in ICE racing’s two professional divisions stands Mandy “Wild Child” Brodil Cervantes, the first lady of ICE Racing, who will defend her five world championship titles. Select amateur classes will also compete, which grant local racers a chance to prove themselves in front of their hometown fans and the stuck-up penguin sitting on the bleachers.
