Welcome to PKRA

Phoenix Kart Racing Association (PKRA) is a member owned and operated club and facility established in 1982.  Our multiple configuration asphalt track is 3/4th of a mile long and averages 25 feet in width.  With 12 turns of various radii and over 500 feet of straight away,  it’s a constant challenge for both the novice and expert driver.  PKRA is located in Glendale, Arizona inside the Adobe Dam Park and Recreation Area.  The track is primarily for those who own their own karts, though a separate entity provides an arrive and drive kart rental service (please contact them directly - see below).

For a more complete overview and how to get started, visit the How to Start page.
