All Star Karting February News
Well 2016 is here and All Star Karting is looking forward to an exciting year. With only a few months away from our first race, preparations are taking place to secure some great opportunities for our members.
DO YOU WANT TO RACE THE SUPER NATIONALS WITH A FREE ENTRY?
Our year end class winners in TaG Senior, TaG Masters and TaG Cadet will be eligible for their entry paid at the ProKart Super Nationals in Las Vegas held in November. As we get closer to the first race we will finalize the details with an announcement of the promotions to our members.
We would like to wish Good Luck to all of our drivers headed to the first SKUSA race of the season at Buttonwillow. We will update everyone on our next newsletter with the results of the weekend.
NEW ARRIVE AND DRIVE PROGRAM
Paula and I are preparing additional karts to be added to our Arrive and Drive program on race weekends, this will include both IAME Mini Swifts and X30 as part of the package. We are excited about our new relationship with SuperKart USA and International Karting Products out of Northern Arizona. Without their help and support this new venture could not have happened. Please give Paula a call in a few weeks after we have finalized all the details on pricing.
RACE DATE REMINDERS
It looks like some great weather finally coming up and we are looking forward to seeing everyone out at the track for practice. We do know the first race of the season will be the Grand Prix so we will be running this layout until our first race. Race dates are April 17th, May 15th, June 12th, July 10, Aug 7 and Sept 18 with Oct 23 as our Rain Make up date.

LOOKING FOR USED KARTS FOR SALE
We had some great success bringing new people into karting over the last few months so we are still looking for some used karts to sell. If anyone is interested in selling their kart on consignment please let us know.
The new Evinco Tires are now in stock, please call for pricing and availability. If anyone is interested in new engine packages, becoming the new dealer for IAME products has opened new doors for All Star Karting and our customers. Please let us know your IAME TaG needs so can keep fully stocked.
WOULD YOU LIKE 2 FREE PRACTICES?
Quick reminder for those that have not been to the track yet this year, as of 1/1/16 the park has started to charge a park fee at the front gate. The new entrance fee is $5 per vehicle. The park is now offering an annual pass that allows unlimited access for $50. The annual pass is available either at the front gate or at All Star Karting, with proof of purchase Paula and I are offering 2 free practices to offset the cost. We hope this helps our customers overcome the changes put into place by the state.
One last note, we were just informed by Go Racing Magazine owned by K1 Speed Inc. (5861 Edison Place, Carlsbad, CA 92008 P. (949) 250-0242 Ext.3013 fernando.montalvo@K1Speed.com) that Go Racing Magazine has been discontinued. Sorry no more articles about all of our great racers at all the wonderful tracks around here.
Thanks again for everyone's support, Bill & Paula McCallister
