The organization is committed to helping youth build meaningful relationships and grow into unique, independent young adults. For more information, visit http://www.cocoonhouse.org.
X-treme International Ice Racing features lightning quick Speedway Motorcycles and ATV racing on a thick, oval track of ice. Top professional riders from all over the world will be competing for national championship titles. The motorcycles are very lightweight, volatile machines that resemble mountain bikes with large, powerful engines burning on nitromethane fuel. What separates the bikes from other forms of racing is the no brakes allowed rule. All machines are equipped with razor sharp steel studded tires and are capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds. Tickets are priced at $10, $17, $22 and $32, all prices increase the day of the event. Select seats available, limit one $5 discount per donation.
