February 2015 Happenings

It is exciting to know that our first race of the season is only 4 weeks away and with this great weather it is time to get some practice laps for the up and coming season.

The first race is March 1st and we are looking forward to a great turnout. We would also like to thank Jonathan Meris for providing the opportunity to feature Prairie City Kart Track on a Live Broadcast Sunday, February 22.

Jonathan will be bringing his Channel 31 crew out to the track from 9am to noon to showcase both the track and our new arrive and drive kart program. We would really appreciate if our members would come on out for the day to show their support for karting. Let’s see how many folks we can get out at the track for the broadcast.

This will be a great opportunity to showcase our little ones, so parents let’s bring out the kids!!! Don't forget to set your DVR's.

The LO206 class is really starting to get some traction and we anticipating a large turnout. Don't forget we will have our arrive and drive LO206 program is place in time for our first race, come by and ask about the details.

REMINDER: Speed School will be held this Saturday, February 7th at 9am-Noon RAIN or SHINE. We will offering this FREE class on basic instructions on racing, practicing, what to expect on Race day and the rules. Everyone is invited to attend regardless of experience. Bring mom, dad, grandparents and siblings. If you could please call Paula so that she can get a head count that would be appreciated.

We are still in need of a Race Director, so those that might have some interest in this position please contact either Paula or Bill.

As some of you might have heard, we had a burglary at the track Friday night 1/23/14 and we would like to remind everyone that having the right locks and or alarms kept the situation from being much worse. Contact the Pro Shop for additional details.

Paula and I would like to ask for some help from our members. Some very negative comments were submitted to the State of California, putting into question our ability to run Prairie Kart Track. It has created a very uncomfortable relationship with the Park.

Most of the comments were submitted by a single individual, who has been a long standing member at the kart track at Prairie City, and his intentions are very clear. This is where we would like to lean on our members for some support.

We feel that maybe a few positive references could help our cause. If we could ask for a few minutes of your time to comment your thoughts on how the track has been run over the last 5 years we would appreciate your help.

An email sent to Jeanne Sisson, Superintendent II of Prairie City SVRA ( Jeanne.sisson@parks.ca.gov ) with your comments would be of great value.

Paula and I have full intentions of overcoming this small obstacle and would like to thank everyone in advance for their assistance.

Just a quick reminder our first race of the season will be the beginning of the Gold Rush which has expanded to almost every track in Northern California. We will be sending out a separate email very soon with all the details of the series.

Let's Go Racing!
