Just what is ice racing? I found out and it's not a Winter Olympic event but it should be. I had the privilege of speaking with Jay Maloney, one of the top racers, and he broke it all down for me.

Yeah, I'm not so sure about ice skating, but ice racing? I kid, but now here's a taste of what you will be seeing this Friday night at the Ford Center. It looks really fun!

All the festivities get underway Friday afternoon with the amateur racing, 6pm is the pit party and the 38th Annual World Championship Ice Racing Series presented by Bud's Harley-Davidson begins at 7pm at the Ford Center in Evansville. Tickets are on sale now at the Ford Center box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at ticketmaster.com or by phone 800-745-3000.
