Race day went extremely well except for one small challenge with timing and scoring, for some reason Orbits, our Timing system, decided to do software update nationwide at 10am Sunday morning. Needless to say that was definitely the wrong time to be doing something like that!!!!

Paula and I would like to personally Thank Ashley, her husband, Josh Veloz and Frankie Tripoli for working very quickly to overcome the set back and get us up and running. We resorted to a Pee Pick for starting spots during the first heat, which opened a whole new conversation of "what's a Pee Pick" for most of the racers that have not been in the sport for a while.

Thanks to ALL the racers for working with us and as it turned out that race day went really well.

Club Race #3 - Linda Emmick Memorial Race

Another quick reminder The "Linda Emmick Memorial" is coming up June 28th and we are looking forward to a great event. This is a fund raising event for the American Heart Association with donation made in the name of Linda Emmick.

Linda Emmick, a pioneering woman and leading figure in karting motor sports, died June 5, 2013 of a sudden heart stroke. She was 69. An adrenaline junkie, Linda blazed a trail in a racing community dominated by men. She was a champion driver, businesswoman and avid promoter of karting, a family-friendly activity and early training ground for many NASCAR and Indy champions. Linda was the first woman to win both national and world titles in karting, in Camden, N.J., in 1969 and Hong Kong in 1971. "Can you imagine a woman back in the early '70s being up front in motor sports or any kind of race car?" said Ron Emmick, a karting and auto racing champion. "She was dedicated to the sport." Help us to beat last year’s All Star Karting donation of $1400.00. Part of the proceeds from the race will be donated, donations will be taken at the track and you can donate online by clicking here, be sure to sign the Guest Book.

We will be running the Mom's LO206 Race again this year and moms let’s get your name in now to reserve your kart for the race. The Dads have been asking when it will be their turn and we might have to put our brains together and come up with a plan to run them both some time during the weekend, separately of course.

Arrive and Drive LO206 karts are available for $150.00 rental for all club races. Call now to reserve your kart for the race. All you need is a little karting experience and you too can race in our series. Everything is provided, just arrive and drive.

Additional help is here!

We do have additional support now during the week as Michael Hayes has committed to working a couple days a week to help out at the track. This means Rentals, Training and Mechanical work can all be done by appointment during the week. If you need any assistance please give us a call (916) 355-0116

Hangtown this weekend

This weekend will be the Hangtown Amateur Classic and Pro Motocross Classic and we have been assured everyone will have access to the kart track during normal business hours. The Amateur Classic is Thursday & Friday May 14th & 15th, the Pros race is on Saturday, May 16th and keep in mind the gates open at 7am and it is usually packed until 9:30ish and the Main event is around 5pm so leaving the park after 6pm might be a small challenge. With the new road out front getting in and out should be a lot easier.

Rental Karts ready for Kart Parties!

Once again the rental fleet is up and running so anyone looking to get into karting, corporate event etc. please give us a call at (916) 355-0116.

 

Thanks again for everyone's support of the track and we look forward to seeing all of you sometime soon.
