Special Thanks To All Involved With The New Track Sign!

September 21st, 2021|

Thank you to Scott Cebulski for fabricating and building our new sign. Scott’s skills as a metal fabricator show through in the design, and scale of this behemoth. This sign is located at the North entry to A-Grid. The sign will display a track map, and ad boards for track sponsors. Additionally, we would like to thank Lyn Grant, and David Hillburn for their hours of help getting the foundations set. One look at this thing, and you’ll see that we have signage covered for years to come, despite any tornados that may come through town.

If you, or anyone that you know are interested in purchasing an ad board, please contact Curtis Ruth, at Innovative Karting.

 

Thanks again guys.

PKRA Rules School

Hello PKRA Racers,

At the last driver’s meeting, I noted how much our club has been growing and how many more entries we’ve been having at every race.  And, while that is very exciting and we love it– there are also additional challenges it presents.

I have several instances at every race where it is clear that our racers (and their parents) do not know or fully understand the rules and raceday procedures.

To help ameliorate this, I am hosting two “Rule School” zoom meeting next week, before Race #4.  They will be on Wednesday and Thursday at 6-8pm meeting links are below).  They will be identical sessions– just pick the day which works best for you.  These sessions will go over some of the more common “not-understood” rules and procedures, and will also explain what the officiating staff is looking for and ruling on during the races.  I highly recommend this for all of our Junior 1 Novice racers and any of our newer Junior 2 racers, as well as anyone in any of our classes that is new to racing at PKRA.

These sessions do not take the place of reading the rulebook, but I hope this will help anyone new(ish) to […]
