Welcome to HIRA

Welcome to Hardwater Ice Racing. Home of the best Ice Racing around and the ever popular Baja Races. Our goal is to provide quality, action packed, family friendly and affordable racing. We ice race on a ¼ mile oval track starting on the third Sunday in January, weather and ice permitting. We have four different classes for the entire family to be able to enjoy and race. Spectators are free during our racing on the lakes! So grab some friends and enjoy the races!

We are the founders of the local Baja races. We took our experience with ice racing, figure eight races, demo derbies and blended them all together on a tamed down motocross track full of bumps, jumps and corners. You’ll see a little rubbin’ is racing, cars flying and the popular roll overs.  The Grand Daddy of them all is the Crow Wing County Fair in Brainerd, Minnesota where over the two nights we have 120-140 cars racing.  The cars and drivers don’t just race it, they have to survive it. It’s a test of skill, endurance and luck. If you haven’t seen this, you need to!
