We are more famously known for the production of the Fur Rondy Grand Prix on the downtown streets of Anchorage. It became known as the longest running street race in North America, at one point surpassing the Long Beach Grand Prix, the race met its demise after the 2009 event due to budget, traffic and political reasons.
Our club has a long history of Ice Racing on various lakes, for the past 20 years we have almost exclusively raced out on Big Lake. Stay tuned for our next season schedule.
Tanacross as we call it is held every year on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. The event is held at the Tanacross BLM airfield by Tok, Alaska and is our only remaining road racing venue in the state.
As we are a promoter of all things cool, we also host the Super Stock Trucks as part of our Ice Racing program, hold Autocrosses from time to time, have time trial events at Tanacross, and look to start a true Rally Cross program in the state.
More importantly, as of August 2010 we are a fully chartered Lions Specialty Club – in a nut shell we are not just a bunch of selfish racers. Not only do proceeds from our events benefit community programs, but we also enjoy hosting fun charitable events such as scavenger hunts, and the Toasty Toes for the Homeless sock and boot drive.
I am well on our way to producing the most comprehensive Motorsports/Motor Powered Vehicle calendar in the State of Alaska! Our goal is to have all clubs, groups, and events on here by summer. If it has horsepower we will publish it. Advertising will be available to offset the costs of running the site. Eventually we would like to turn this into an avenue for promoting trade education in Alaska
