Track Rules

All Star Karting operations are run according to the 2016 NKA Rulebook. (Available for review at any time in the office or for review/purchase at All NKA rules apply to racing as well as practice. Track rules listed below contain both NKA Rules and Supplemental Track Rules: All persons entering the facility must sign the WAIVER OF LIABILITY FORM. Separate sheets will be available for participants, spectators, and minors. Those unwilling to sign the waiver must leave the premises.

No person shall enter the track area unless a member of the All Star Karting staff has granted permission. Any driver, spectator or minor driver’s supervising parent/guardian must be in good standing with the facility, event or series to be eligible to compete at any NKA Member facility, event or series. All Star Karting has the right to refuse or revoke entry to Prairie City Kart Track at any time.

It is the member’s responsibility to see that their guests have signed the WAIVER OF LIABILITY RELEASE FORM.

All persons under the age of 18 must have a PARENTAL CONSENT FORM executed or on file when entering the facility. Only a Parent or Legal Guardian, officially appointed by the court, can sign this form. A Parent or Legal Guardian can sign a Parental Consent form prior to attending any practice or event as long as it is on an original colored form and Notarized. You can obtain a Parental Consent form at the track.

Once an annual PARENTAL CONSENT FORM is on file, any responsible adult may sign for the minor on subsequent days. Releases signed at other tracks are not valid at Prairie City. Once the release is on file it is valid for a full calendar year. If there is not a signed Parental Consent form on file we cannot allow that minor onto the premises.
