About ASK

Hello everyone. I just want to welcome all of you to a new season of racing at PC! The first race is coming up quick and we are doing our best to get everything prepared to put on the best race ever.

As most of your have probably seen, Bill and Paula McCallister have been handling the day-to-day practice and track operations, and my family and friends along with Bill and Paula will be running the races. My father Les will be running the facility on race weekends and I don’t think you could ask for someone better. My mother Janet will be in charge of timing and scoring which is also the best you can do. Both have held these positions before for many years in the days I raced karts. Tom Halbasch will be Race Director.

Just so everyone is clear on our goal with All Star Karting and PCKC, let me give you some of my thoughts. We look forward to giving people a fun, family-oriented place to race. I started my career racing at PC and spent many days teaching people how to drive at this track. I really enjoy the idea that some of the kids racing out here will possibly make a career of racing, and those who don’t I expect will have a great time.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to be at the first race as I will be flying to the ALMS winter test in Sebring, FL. I am excited for my season with BMW Rahal Letterman Racing, but my racing will cause me to miss a handful of PCKC events.

Look for our BBQ on Saturday afternoon sponsored by Race Media Group (RMG) and hosted at the Kartel hospitality tent. I will be there for that! I hope everyone has a great weekend of racing. The more fun you have the better you can do, I know from experience!  - Joey
