As you know, JET Karting is looking for a property to move our operation to. In searching for a place to call home, our priorities are; a racetrack capable of hosting a strong regional or national event, property owners that we are able to have a positive relationship with, and ideally a location in the ‘Route 66’ region.
Kris and I are having discussions with three properties that meet all of these goals.
Once we finalize our location, our whole family is looking forward to welcoming and expanding our racer family at our new ‘home’.
With great sadness, JET Karting will no longer be operating Concept Haulers Motor Speedway. Our current lease finishes December 31, 2011.
Kris and I would like to thank all the great racers that have shared the past years with us. Far more than customers, you have become our ‘racer family’. We will miss working and playing with you. The past years will always be a bright spot in the lives of both of us and our kids. Thank you.
Here are the current points for the Friday night rental leagues fall session.
Margay 4.2c - $2000
$3000 ready for Spec with new 206 package and new IR tires.
This 1 year old chassis that Andy ran at the Rock Island Gran Prix to an 8th place finish. This would make a great kart for the Spec class with a 206 engine, or put a clone on it.
The big party is November 13th at Skydive Chicago. Check out skydivechicago.com for directions.
It's coming fast... Time to break out the warm driving gloves and get ready for the Halloween Gran Prix. This season we'll be splitting practice so you won't have to come early for the 100 lap practice, and it will be closer to race conditions.
Don't miss the Hotdog & Coke race! Open to all classes, drivers race two laps, stop to eat a hotdog and drink a Coke, then race one more lap. Admission is just a hotdog & coke from concessions. Bragging rights are forever.
We will be having a mechanics race this Saturday. Get Dad out on the track for Fathers Day! Register for the race at the registration booth when you arrive at the track.
In honor of the Holiday, we'll not be holding a League Racing tonight. League's start again on the 11th of June. The schedule for the rest of the year is up too.
You may notice that we are pushing back the start time to 7pm, as we've had some racers have to rush to get here by 6:30. We all like racing, but shouldn't have to do it on the street...
If you're thinking of getting into karting, or are looking for a cool way to spend Friday evenings with friends, give it a shot.
