Good listen with TJ Patrick...check it out.

How many times do you get to interview your dad? It’s about to get #PrettyIntense on this week’s new podcast episode as Danica Patrick sits with her dad TJ Patrick and NO subject is untouched: Danica’s childhood, her true early origins of racing, getting grounded in high school, the Patrick family Christmas traditions and so much more, including the story of TJ sampling the local cuisine in Amsterdam. You’ll just have to listen:

Winter Spectacular 2017 Champ 440 Snowmobile Heat Race. Viking Speedway. TLR Cup. Day 1

Sure do miss this event....

My dad and I went to Viking Speedway, Alexandria, Minnesota to watch the snowmobile races on February 3rd, 2017. We got to the first of a two day event at 11...

Central Minnesota IFS Sno-Pro Series.

The first pic is HOF driver Steve Thorsen aboard his factory Scorpion at Alexandria MN.1979. The second pic is a head on shot of the same front straightaway 2017. So much history! #daycoholidayspectacular #winterspectacular #history #safteydifferencelol

Man-this was a fun race to watch.....let's say it was " Spectacular"....

Yesterday during day 2 of The Winter Spectacular, the F-500 Final was OUTSTANDING!

Winter Spectacular won't be held in 2019

[07/13/18]   It is never an easy decision to end something that has been so very successful and had so many awesome racers and fans. With changes to different entities, the speedway facility-the decision was made that the Winter Spectacular will NOT be held this year.
Thank you to all our faithful racers, fans, partners ( Tommy Lipar, Oval Racers-Alliance, Thomas Larson Jr, Todd Achterberg, TLR, Explore Alexandria MN, Ollie's Service, Inc Earl Anderson Sonya Anderson Telkamp Farms, D/S Field Services, Raceday Larry Preston Holiday Inn Alexandria Dave Wahl, Radil Farms, Schaeffer's Oil Shawn Olson Winning Edge Graphics Robyn Snyder H Boyd Nelson Inc Beer Wholesale Ramblin Ray Ramblin Ray) that have supported this event from day 1- Year after Year; and made it such a successful and family fun event.
We encourage and ask that you continue to support these fine organizations; TLR, ORA, CPTC, CMPR, PVR and ER - and perhaps, in 3-5 years a reunion Winter Spectacular race/show will return.
IT truly was like watching jet fighters in a gymnasium-RR
Go Fast, Turn Left, Look Kewl-Raceday
Thank you. Blessings and safe travels.

The 10GDP group sends their thoughts and prayers....Vern was the Winter Spectacular Grand Marshal in 2015. He was the Race Director for the 'original' Holiday Spectacular, wrote tech articles for a snowmobile magazine, built 2 prototype snowmobiles with Frank Chan. HE mentored and influenced many in racing and in the fire industry.
We were glad to know him -

Our founder. Our mentor. Our friend.

It saddens me to announce the untimely death of our Founder and President, Vern Wieberdink, early Thursday morning.

Vern started our company over thirty years ago, one man on a mission to bring firefighters the very best equipment available. He was instrumental in making our company what it is today, and by building a strong foundation he was able to step away a few years ago and enjoy retirement to its fullest.

He will be deeply missed, but rest assured that our commitment to our customers will not change. We will continue to provide you with the same exceptional level of service you have come to expect from Alex Air Apparatus. Vern wouldn’t have it any other way.
