— On Dec. 4, the 51st Annual Indoor Motorcycle Ice Races, hosted by the Flint Motorcycle Club, roars into Perani Arena and Event Center.
Since the races inception, all proceeds from the event have benefited Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Flint. This has been a lasting partnership combining the love of motorcycles and ice racing with the mentoring needs of children in the community. More than 2,000 spectators are expected to attend and be thrilled by amateur and professional riders competing for prize money, and the races will showcase adult competitors and a youth division featuring children as young as fouryears old.
Doors open at 6 p.m., followed by the races at 7 p.m. Tickets are $16 for adults, $8 for children. Tickets are available at Perani Arena and Event Center and Ticket Master Outlets. A kick-off party is Dec. 2 at Scooters Bar & Grill, featuring a live auction and pre-race fun.
