January 2015 Happenings

Happy New Year! All Star Karting hopes that everyone had a relaxing holiday season. Now that the holidays are over, we can start planning the 2015 race season. Here are a few important reminders and some highlights coming up for this year:

1. Everyone with existing pit spots will need to renew your memberships and pit spots no later than January 15th or they will be reassigned! Currently, we have a number of people on the waiting list for pit spots. For those that don't plan on renewing, please let us know as soon as possible. Also, if you currently have parked a trailer here, you will need to pick it up to make room for the new pit spot owners.

2. The yearly Parental Consent, Release and Waiver form must be signed for 2015 for all minors under 18. Only a Parent or Legal Guardian, officially appointed by the court, can sign this form. A Parent or Legal Guardian can sign a Parental Consent form prior to attending any practice or event, as long as it is on an original colored form and notarized. You can obtain a Parental Consent form at the track. Once an annual PARENTAL CONSENT FORM is on file, any responsible adult may sign for the minor on subsequent days. Releases signed at other tracks are not valid at Prairie City. Once the release is on file, it is valid for a full calendar year. If there is not a signed Parental Consent form on file, we cannot allow that minor onto the premises.**New this year, we will need a copy of the minor’s birth certificate, if they plan on racing the 2015 season, as required by NKA rules. (The NKA rule book can be found on line at www.nkaonline.com.) First time kid kart drivers, whether racing or practicing, must have a birth certificate on file as well. I only have a hand full of certificates on file, please contact us to verify if there is one for your racer.

3. The new Extreme karts and the Briggs and Stratton LO206 engine packages are ready for delivery, come by and see the new product line. We think everyone will be very impressed. Our plans are to run a couple of LO206 classes for this season in the hope that we will start to see an increase in kart count. For now, we would like to focus on Junior 3 "12 to 15" and Senior "15 and Up." If there is a need, we will also look into the Masters "35 and Up". Stay tuned for more details, as we get closer to the first race. Please keep in mind it takes 3 drivers to make a class. We will also have a group of karts ready when the racing season begins and at this time our plans are to offer an "Arrive and Drive" program to help promote the class. Further details regarding this will be coming within the next few weeks.

4. The racing season is going to consist of 6 races with 1 drop. However, you cannot drop the Gold Rush race #1. In order to be eligible for the Championship, you will need to participate in at least 4 of the 6 races and there must be the minimum of 3 drivers in the class for each of the 4 races. NKA rules will be adhered to for the 2015 race season. (The NKA rule book can be found on line at www.nkaonline.com.) We will be having the second annual Linda Emmick Memorial race on June 28th, it will be our featured race of the year and will be DOUBLE POINTS. We hope to have a fantastic turnout for this event, as a portion of the proceeds will benefit the American Heart Association. Our 2015 club season will close with the last race on October 18th. This race will also be double points, in order to provide an opportunity for drivers to tighten up the points race. Increased kart count is our main focus for each of our 6 races. The 2015 Race Calendar can be found on our website as well as the class listings or is available at the track.

5. The first race of the season will be a Club Race and Gold Rush combined, same as last year. The Gold Rush Series will expand to 7 tracks this year: Prairie City, Davis, Dixon, Stockton, Monterey, Atwater and Reno. We still have some details to iron out but we’ll keep everyone updated. Our thoughts at this time are to have at least one drop, but you can’t drop the last race of the series. More details to follow.

We are excited about the up and coming season and we look forward to seeing everyone out at the track during the new year. Please look for us on Facebook at All Star Karting,

HELP NEEDED:

We are looking for a Score Keeper for the 2015 Race Season. Some computer experience is required. We use the Orbits program and although prior experience would be nice, it is not required.

Race Director needed! Person would be required to be available for all races scheduled, unless prior arrangements had been made. Hours are 8:00 am until race ends, which maybe 3:00pm or as late as 5:30pm. Lunch is provided.

Track workers needed! We have a few track workers returning for 2015, but we need a few more. Workers would be required to be available for all races scheduled, unless prior arrangements had been made. The job entails working different parts of the track, knowledge of all race rules and flags (instruction will be given at the start of the season), assisting racers and spectators as needed, and finally clean up assistance at the end of the day. Hours are 8:00 am until race ends, which maybe 3:00pm or as late as 5:30pm. Lunch is provided. Please call Paula at (916) 803-1992 for further details on all of these positions.
