2023 Wilke Myers Memorial Freeze Out Hillclimb

Freezeout Hillclimb

About this event

REGISTRATION: You must be a current member of NHA to register for an NHA sanctioned event. Please renew/purchase your membership at Northwest Hillclimb Association  before attempting to enter our event. NHA membership is $20 annually. 

The City of Emmett is excited to have the 57th Annual running of the Freezeout Annual Hillclimb which has been renamed to the Wilke Myers Memorial Freezeout Hillclimb, in honor of Wilke Myers who passed away in 2020.  

From the first Freezeeout Hillclimb until June 2020 Wilke never missed a Freezout Hillcliimb, a fact he was very proud of.  One year he suffered a broken ankle and was in an ankle to hip cast.  He despartely wanted to keep his streak going so they helped him the car, strapped down his broken leg in the passenger seat and sent him up the hill.  As a disclaimer that would not be allowed today...just sayin'.  His love for cars and racing is was almost legendary.  One of his passions besides driving was teaching other people to drive and to love the sport. So come and enjoy the hill, bring plenty of water and shade.


Tech will be ON THE HILL Friday from 5:00-8:00pm. For anyone that cannot make it Friday, we will be able to tech Saturday morning, but you must be there by 8:00am, and preferably if at all possible, please make it to tech on Friday to reduce the scrambling and anxiety of the volunteers.
