Add more oil to the fire; Extra penalty against Michael Page
Michael Page rode to victory at the Talladega Ice Bowl. Victory came on January 8th at the Talladega Short Track in Alabama.

Tire fails the benchmark
Just two days after the suspension was imposed, officials have returned and added an additional penalty.
The series release reads, “2022 Ice Bowl winner Michael Page of Douglasville, GA was disqualified as the winner of the event after a tire sample taken after the conclusion of last Saturday’s event failed inspection by an independent laboratory test has passed. ”
“1600 right rear tire and a 1350 right front tire. The 1600 passed the lab test, but the 1350 failed to meet and pass the benchmark, so Page was disqualified from his Ice Bowl victory.”
Christian Hanger of Winchester, TN was declared the 2022 Ice Bowl winner. The Dirt Late Model Race paid $5,000 to win.
