Ice Racing

For a fun family spectator event, check out the West Cove Ice Racing Association. This event started in 1999 with a small group of local enthusiasts racing in a single four-cylinder car category. It has expanded to become a highly popular local event. Every Saturday from late January until March, an assortment of novelty racecars and trucks with special studded tires gathers in the Greenville Junction West Cove for an afternoon of racing. A quarter-mile oval track is plowed on the ice. A concession stand offers the usual spectator sport fare. Racing events include 8/12 valve, 16 valve, 6 cylinder, and rear wheel drive cars; mini pickup trucks; and youth categories.
