Indoor Kart Racing 1/25

WRAPUP:  Thrills, chills and speed!!  Everyone had a fabulous time at this years event. The racing was close and mostly clean, and what wasn’t clean makes for fun bench racing stories.   The format was a little different, with two person teams and 45 minutes of time, but it actually allowed for a bit of additional racing time, and it is always fun racing on the full size combined track.

The overall Race winners Adam and Scott were awarded gift cards courtesy of Ridemakerz 

If you have any photos or video of the event, please send the link (not the actual pictures) to and I will link them here.
