Go Karts Coming Back To Spud Speedwaylast updated on 4/2/2013
The 2013 season is coming quick to Spud Speedway, and under the continued management of Troy Haney and his staff, new things will be happening to make the show more entertaining. This year, Spud Speedway looks to go kid friendly with several events geared to get the kids involved in racing. The first big announcement is the return of Go Karts to the track in more than 20 years for a regular series that will take place each and every week. At one time karting was a staple of the 1/3 mile asphalt oval as racers cut their teeth learning how to set up a kart and race, which translates to race cars in later years. Spud Speedway is looking to make sure that everyone has a chance to learn what karting is all about by hosting a seminar at the Caribou applied Technology Vocational Center at the Caribou High School on Saturday, April 13th at 1:00. The class will take place at the Caribou FFA agriculture shop where we will have past Spud Speedway kart racer and teacher, Tom Hale on hand to answer questions about his past experiences at the track. The keynote speaker and trainer of the day will be former Aroostook County resident, Nate Anderson, owner and operator of Thundering Valley Raceway in St. Albans, Maine. Nate has great knowledge and a long history of karting all over New England and will be looking to share that knowledge with anyone who is interested in karting at Spud Speedway. Nate was born and raised in Mars Hill left shortly after being drafted in the army. Nate built his first go kart in 1967 which he raced in Centerville, New Brunswick. After a few years off, Nate got back into kart racing in 1992 with a club that raced at Wiscasset, Bangor and Unity on the big tracks. Since Maine never had a track built for karts, his wife, Marti and Nate decided to build one. The reason for them was simple as safety was the underlining reason. They located their facility in St Albans as it was centrally located in Maine and just off the interstate. This will be their fifteenth year operating Thundering Valley Raceway. As one of the first kart dealers in Maine, Nate has established a working relationship with dealers throughout the country. Nate builds engines for several tracks and sells karts throughout New England. Nate has agreed to help Spud Speedway establish proper rules and technical support to those who get involved in racing karts. Spud Speedway will be starting with 3 classes of karts. Kids Karts ages 5-7, Jr. Sportsman ages 8-12, and a Sr. Sportsman class for anyone 13 and over. If you interest in attending this seminar please preregister by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 207-227-0897 Other events this year for kids will include a few special events to include pedal bike racing and box car races for even the smallest of kids. Box car racing is where kids take a cardboard box and design it to look like a race car that goes over their shoulders and then the foot race is on. Kids will race other kids in their age group. These type of events will be expanded upon based on the popularity and participation as Spud Speedway looks to ensure a great family fun environment each and every week at Spud Speedway. The 2013 race season will start on Memorial day weekend on Saturday, May 25th at 1:00 and they hope to see everyone there!
