ELMIRA, NY (WENY) - Xtreme Interntaional Ice Racing returns to First Arena this weekend. 

The event, presented by Buckley’s Automotive and Elmira Heat Treating, begins on Friday and Saturday at 7:35 PM. There will be three different race classes: Speedway, Pro Quad, and Flattrack. The Speedway bikes go from 0 to 60 MPH in under 3 seconds. 

One of the greats in the sport, Anthony "The British Bulldog" Barlow, tells WENY, "It's one of our premium events. We came here, I think, in 2009. Brought the show here. I met Robbie Nichols who has now become a really good friend and helps me promote in different places and if I need him he's always there for me."

Barlow also tells WENY returning to First Arena is always a treat. He says, "We really look forward to coming back here. It's just a great atmosphere. Whether it's 2,500 people here or 700 people here the crowd gets behind you."
