For 2017, the Fairbanks Tired Iron is focusing on what got us started. Cool old sleds! On March 19th all races will be specifically dedicated to the Jurassic Classic.
Events will take place at the same location the Jurassic was held in 2016, at the groomed course in the field just North of East Fred Meyers. (the one on the Old Steese). We call it “Jurassic Park!”
Other events at the same time and location will include a show and shine (for all vintage sleds), specialty sleds display, and other fun events. Bring your spiffed up vintage sled to our vintage outdoor showroom and you’ll have a great chance at winning $1000 cash (a random draw from all participants) and lots of other great prizes.
Dig out that old sled and get her going! Depending on entries, we plan on adding a 2nd Jurassic event for sleds capable of 25-35 MPH (Jurassic II) as well as our 25 MPH and slower. If you can’t find a sled to drive, make sure you at least come out and cheer on your favorite geezer or bring any vintage sled to the show and shine (up to 1979 models)
Visit the Rules page of this site for all the details like what model years are allowed, entry information, etc. (We will be updating the website with details of the Show & Shine and other events on a regular basis leading up to the race. )
The kids Ping Pong ball drop and the other three main events will be back next year as we focus on increasing the number of participants and getting as many old “Jurassic” sleds and drivers out on the track as possible! Watch this website for updates, entry forms, and details. And spread the word!
