Racing is HEATING UP at the Kartplex

Racing is HEATING UP at the Kartplex



It was a hot one at the track this weekend, but we had a great crowd for both our Ignite Series night race on Saturday and our SuperComp Series double feature race on Sunday.

 

Our weekend started out with some excitement on Thursday when a HUGE storm blew in and shook up the Kartplex. The end result was a rearranged track, standing water, and other various damage. However, thanks to our awesome team of Kartplex workers, the track was back together, dry, and ready for racing by Friday evening!

Saturday turned out hot, as expected, but that didn’t stop our Ignite racers from coming out ready to go! Thankfully, once the sun set we were able to have a break from some of the heat and it turned out to be perfect weather for racing!
The full classes made for exciting and close racing in all classes resulting in some new faces on the podium.
