We will be closed, Monday July 4th to celebrate Independence Day and reopen for normal business hours on Tuesday the 5th. The weekend prior will be regular business hours.
We will be holding an enduro event in honor of the 4th of July. The event will consist of 4 segments each being 1776 seconds long to go with the July 4 theme. At the end of each segment there will be a 5 minute break, during which the karts will be adjusted using the dice and doin format we’ve used in the past. Cost is $300 per team until July 3rd. Starting July 4th entry increases to $350 per team.
-Four Segments each 1776 seconds in length (roughly 30 minutes)
-Kart order adjusted during segment breaks using Coin/Dice Format
-Entry Fee $300 per team until July 3rd, $350 starting July 4th
-Drivers pass and Kart insurance included with Entry Fee
It has been suggested that we should offer the KA100 class as an add to our Points races. Adding a new class always presents some new dilemmas. What if I am the only one that shows up is a major consideration. To be sure we have at least a small class each raceday, I would like to see at least 5 commitments to the season so if one can’t make it this week, there is still a class. To encourage this I am willing to reduce the entry fee for a year commitment. We have 12 scheduled races left yet this year (race 1 & 3 have rained out and will be made up). Normal raceday entry fee is $70. I will reduce that to $50/race which means $600 for the rest of the year. I will hold this pricing for three weeks and if we can get 5 or more to enter, then we will start the class. If you sign up, and pay, and it does not happen, you will get a full refund. Suggested tire was MG SH (red) and suggested weight was 360. There are many karts in the area so let’s make this happen. You can comment below or email the shop if you have other ideas.
Join us for a day of fun and socializing. We have no special theme this year so invent one and come. We will have open practice from 10-1ish for the reduced price of $25. At 1PM we will start our “precision” driving challenge. This is a moderate speed event with emphasis on accuracy around different courses and then combining your times to select a winner. You will get 2 attempts at each course if you choose. Because this is moderate speed in our rental kart, even those without racing experience stand a good chance of winning. Entry fee is only $10 with 5 going into the purse divided among the best. We will furnish sandwiches at 6PM but please call and let us know a head count so we can order food. Bring your own drinks of choice and a dish to pass if you would like. Socialize with your friends, or make new ones, after eating. Let us know you are attending and see you Sat.
We will be hosting the CKNA race in June. They are handling the class entry along with the pit space reservations this year. We will be selling the pit pass wristbands. We have some garages available for rent for the race as well. Garages will have a parking spot nearby included with them along with elec (probably not enough for a trailer plug in though) and locked with your padlock. Call to rent a garage or prepurchase wristbands as that will put you in the “fast lane” for wristband pickup. If you would like to “spectate” at this event for free, you must stay on the “71” side of the orange gate until races are over. Come and enjoy watching some serious racing.

Some of the awaited tires have arrived. The bad news is tire pricing has increased upwards of 9% with freight added in. We will be increasing the prices on todays sales and beyond. We will honor the pricing for those who have purchased tire contracts already but new contracts will see an increase of $10 on the base plus $5 per set. MG has held prices constant for well over 6 years now but the last few years have been a financial challenge for all of us — business and personal.
We will be closed Sunday, April 17th in celebration of Easter. We will reopen Monday, April 18th for practice and rentals during regular business hours.
