WICHITA FALLS, TX — The Wichita Falls Warriors are pleased to announce that the revitalization of the ice plant at Kay Yeager have been successfully completed and that ice will be made during the last week of March to not only test out the equipment but to host the finals of Xtreme International Ice Racing along with open skating for the public.
The repairs to the ice plant, which came with a price tag of $150,000, was donated by the ownership of the Wichita Fall Warriors Hockey Club to the city of Wichita Falls.
“As promised when we first came to town, we are not only bringing hockey back, but we are investing in the community. It was very important to me that the repairs to the arena would not cost the taxpayers a dime,” said team owner Mary Ann Choi. “Not only can we now bring hockey back, but we now have the opportunity to bring in different programs such as youth and adult hockey, figure skating, public skating and events such as Ice Racing. All of these activities help to improve the quality of life for this area”.
The Warriors are also pleased to announce that they will be partnering with the MPEC and Red River Harley to bring Xtreme International Ice Racing to town on March 28th. This will be the final event of the season for the XIIR tour.
“This is going to be a fun, affordable event that the whole family can enjoy”, said team president Jason Rent.
XIIR has recently partnered with Orange County Choppers to create a reality television show. They will be on hand filming during the event in Wichita Falls.
