GREENVILLE - Ice racing is a popular winter activity here in Maine.

This weekend the "West Cove Ice Race" is set to take off in Greenville.


The racers run three different races, a heat race, a feature and an open.


They all run four cylinder cars and run ten laps for the heat and fifteen for the feature.


This is a great community event and family oriented as well.


"We actually had a really good turnout for spectators the whole track is usually filled right up and kids are out there and cheering us on," says Nikki Hamilton, a racer in the event. "It's a good thing."


Anyone can participate with any car, but they do have protocols that you have to follow.


You must have a window net and a fire extinguisher.
