(Press Release from American-Canadian Tour)

Pro All Stars Series (PASS) and American-Canadian Tour (ACT) officials have announced the full schedule of events for the ten-division 49th Icebreaker Weekend line-up at Thompson Speedway.

After a full afternoon of practice on Friday, March 31st open to all Icebreaker divisions, Saturday brings an exciting opening day for the 2023 season. The Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models make their 21st appearance at the 0.625-mile oval to headline the Saturday portion of Icebreaker weekend with a 75-lap showdown. In contrast, the newly minted Mighty Mini Stock Series will also be in attendance for their first-ever point counting event to the tune of 25-laps. 

Saturday’s showcase will also include the EXIT Reality Pro Truck Series and a $1,200 to win 50-lap Street Stock Open event. Starting off their 2023 seasons will also be the Sunoco Modifieds, who are pulling double-duty on both days of Icebreaker weekend, plus the always thrilling Thompson Late Models. Both local divisions will be pulling for 30-lap season opener events. 

Sunday, April 2nd brings along the iconic Icebreaker 125, now in its 49th edition. Won by such icons of the open wheeled world including Richie Evans, Bugs Stevens, Jimmy Spencer, Mike Stefanik and Ted Christopher, a pool of talented teams are expected to make a run at the history books with $10,000 waiting for them under the checkered flag. Sunday will also include season-opening action for four more local divisions including the Limited Sportsman, SK Lite Modifieds and Mini Stocks.

  1. Suitcase Jake says

    Thank you for keeping the ICEBREAKER as part of the spring tradition at the HIGH BANKS….!!!!! This is the first year I will be watching PPV …. There is no better Track in NE for Modifieds and Super Late Models… the Limited Sportsman are great to watch also…Heck everything is Fast on Thompson…I am looking forward to Racing in 2023….Wishing you Warm dry weather in April for this Iconic Icebreaker Weekend….!!!!

  2. Best track in the State.

  3. Shawn, $59.99 is too much money to watch the modified race on my computer. I want to be mad at TMS but perhaps someone else is responsible for this outrageous fee. Can you wise us up as to whom we should complain to? Ciao

  4. Fast Eddie says

    Ken, originally the PASS race was on Saturday, kind of making it a $30.00 per day race. For what was originally scheduled that was no different than buying a 2-day ticket to the event; same $$ either way. I’d guess you have to complain to the streaming service.

  5. It is the same price as two-day general admission. That is pretty typical for PPV racing events. if you were to buy the PPV separately for both days which is priced at $35 per day you would actually pay more for Friday than to go in person which is $25. I am considering going tomorrow so the two day PPV is off the table. I was thinking about getting the PPV tonight but seeing the pricing decided against it. Its the opposite for Saturday which is cheaper to watch online $35 v going in person $40. I don’t believe they did any PPV pricing adjustments from the original scheduled event. I haven’t been a member or purchased a PPV from Racing America since its rebranding from Speed51. Don’t know how the service has been since the change. Weather looks good, hopefully Thompson gets a good crowd.

  6. I get someone could think the whole nut is a good chunk of change but complaint worthy not so sure. I’m looking at the program Saturday and thinking that my friends is a bargain.
    Gotta try to support streamed racing in some fashion if you can. As it stands Racing America has the Icebreaker and Northeast Classic the only events that include tour mods. They appear to be all in on Late Models for now anyway. We get the two MMTTS races at Stafford and Thunder Road courtesy of FloRacing, so far nothing else from Racing America.
    We anticipated there could be a slimming down of streamed events and Racing America may very well be evidence of that. Last year about this time they scheduled a bunch of tour mod events as part of the monthly subscription and it motivated me to sign up on a monthly basis. This year just the two, both PPV and both include Late Models as it turns out.
    For now it looks like Racing American does not think it worth sending a crew to stand alone tour mod races.
