2013 Season Begins!
On May 17th, we started the season on the newly repaired track surface. The fans saw the racers put on a great show! The drivers said the surface is much better and the races were all very tight. Fans witnessed victories by Thor McDonald and Rick Phillips in the Adult Clone Class. Oden McDonald and Christin Owens won in the JR II Clone class with Hannah McDonald leading in the feature until she was bumped by Owens on the last lap for the win. Jace Carter took the checkers in all three races in the Kid Kart Class.
The track surface is undergoing repairs! Racers will be very happy to soon be racing on a smooth track again. City crews have been working hard every day cutting out all the rough areas to be replaced with new asphalt, which is something needed for the past few years. Racing is hopefully to start Friday, May 10, at 7 P.M.
Karting has become so popular that you should be able to find a track near you. Most of the major cities in the US have one or more tracks designed especially for racing. This is really the most important element at this stage...finding a track you're comfortable with.
2007 Sprint Kart Speedway Awards Banquet
The 2007 Sprint Kart Speedway Awards Banquet was held Friday night October 19th at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport. We had 129 drivers, family, friends and fans turn out for another great night.
Mark Yeager was the entertainer who did walk around magic and a stage show after dinner before the awards were handed out. As always Mark amazed the people and did a great job.
Promoter Steve "Spider" Duffy first recognized his track staff, George and Corolene Clausen and Mike Clausen, Fred Williams and Tony Franklin. Without these folks who are very dedicated to the track and are a very important key in keeping things running smooth all year long.
Jeff's Market catered the event and supplied great food.
As always there were plenty of door prizes handed out after the awards and everyone took plenty home.
