The Cardboard Classic Sled Race began in Albion Michigan in 1990 and was created by the Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce. The event was originally sponsored by World Corrugated.
In 2018, the race was held the day after a Winter Emergency, and there was 10 inches of fresh powder snow, and brisk 18-degree temperatures.
