From a press release:

As announced in May, World Championship Ice Racing will return to the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre Township for one night only on Friday, Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the 2019 Fire on Ice Evolution Tour.

Featuring the biggest names in professional motorcycle ice racing and the most fearless racers on ice racing the wild Unlimited Outlaw Quads, these racers will be rocketing around the arena’s solid ice track, shredding the ice with razor-sharp studded tires, hitting insane speeds (going from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds), and racing for the most prestigious World Championship Ice Racing Title.

This action-packed night of professional racing and stunts comes with chills, spills, and thrills with a no-holds-barred racing attitude that will keep everyone on the edge of their seats. And just when you think things couldn’t get hotter, Ken “The Stuntman” Remer will be back with his pyrotechnics team to light the night on fire.
