2023 Tired Iron Update

Thanks for Stopping By!

Fairbanks Tired Iron proudly announces its Title sponsorship of the 2023 Vintage and Classic Sled Races, to be hosted by Alaska Vintage Sleds.

Get ready to experience some real “Vintage Style” snowmachine fun! Our most basic commitment to the “Tired Iron” experience is to have FUN! True, our official mission is to: “Educate the public, document and preserve the history of snowmachining and snowmachine racing”, so what better way to achieve that goal than to encourage people to restore those old sleds and bring them out to show them off!

For 2023, once again, we’ve teamed up with Alaska Vintage Sleds to host the 18th Annual Tired Iron, a Vintage snow machine weekend full of fun events! There is sure to be sufficient fun to satisfy all types of vintage sled enthusiasts.

Events will be held on March 11th and 12th at 3671 Lakeview Drive, which is the location of the Fairbanks Snowmobile Fun Lions Clubhouse

And back, by popular demand is MONEY!! Tired Iron has set aside $5,000 for CASH drawing prizes. We think you’re going to like what’s in store for 2023. Bottom line is… it should FUN… a good time for all.

Don’t Forget… Everyone should plan to enter at least one sled in our Vintage Sled Show-N-Shine (for all vintage sleds through 2000). Bring your spiffed up vintage sled to our vintage outdoor showroom and you’ll have a great chance at winning $ cash $ (random drawings from all participants) and other great prizes. AND, BEST OF ALL… IT’S TOTALLY FREE TO ENTER THE SHOW-N-SHINE!

So, dig out that old sled and get her going! If you have a running vintage snowmachine, but won’t be able to ride, ask a friend to race it for you. If you can’t find a sled to ride, make sure you at least come out and cheer on your favorite geezer or bring any vintage sled to the Show-N-Shine, for your chance to win some cash!
