About The Sprint Kart Speedway - Davenport, Iowa
The Sprint Kart Speedway started out in the early 60’s as The Dusters Kart Club and continued to provide go-kart racing on the weekends until the late 80’s when the Sprint Kart Speedway then moved to Friday Night racing.
This is the oldest family operated track in the Mid-West. It is a six-turn asphalt track 1/5th mile, which also offers two different oval tracks.

This is a local track, which caters to the beginners and expert drivers with one thing in mind- to have Fun! We stress family involvement.
Ages begin at 5 to 75 years old. We have formed special classes such as Ladies Only, Seniors, and Novice Only. The track has made some changes over the years but one thing stayed in place, it is a fun place to attend.
