Races Postponed To February 15

This Saturday’s races have been postponed to Saturday, February 15 due to the cold weather forecasted. Even though the building will always be at 55 degrees or more during race day, the cost to heat up and maintain that temperature will be too costly this week. And starting February 15th, the grandstands will be FREE! We’ll see you for the next race on Saturday, February 15!

Order Tires

Dunlop

During the summer, the Red River Kart Club is a Dunlop only race track. Currently, Dunlop is making a newer tire compound (DFS) that’ll be released in the fall of 2014 or spring of 2015. That means only the older tire compound will be available during the summer race season – while supplies last. To ensure that you’ll have enough new Dunlop tires for this summer, we’re putting in an order straight from the factory for the older compound. Use the form below to enter the number of tires you’d like to purchase and we’ll notify everyone when they’ll be available for pick-up. When the order arrives, you’ll be expected to pick-up and pay for the tires at Performance Auto of Fargo. Please make sure to enter your name or the order will be disregarded. Thank you!

RRKC/Monster Jam 2014

The Red River Kart Club has the opportunity to race during the Monster Jam event at the Fargodome again this year! If you’re interested in racing, contact Nick Skalicky (701-261-3673) by Tuesday, January 28th at the latest. The kids in the Junior 1, 2 & stock animal/flathead classes would race Friday, January 31 (7:30pm show) and Saturday, February 1 (7:30pm show.) The Rookie kids would race the Saturday, February 1 (2:00pm show.) The Rookie kids are welcome to race Friday and/or Saturday nights but keep in mind that they’ll be running with the older kids. This is not a points or scored event. It’s more of a show than a competition and we’re out there to have fun and get the crowd excited. Here’s a link to the Fargodome’s Monster Jam event: http://fargodome.com/event-page-new?e_id=81

Details for those racing in the Monster Jam event at the Fargodome:

  • If you’re racing the Friday night show, you should be at the dome by 5pm to sign-in/register.
  • Use the North entrance near the long loading ramp.
  • Only the driver and 1 parent are allowed in the pits area. (If 2 parents need to be in the pits let Nick know)
  • The karts will be racing on the dirt surface that the Monster Trucks run on.
  • No adult drivers will be competing.
  • There’ll be 2 chances to race per event.

If you’re racing the Saturday afternoon race:

  • There’s a “Pit Party” prior to the afternoon race.
  • The “Pit Party” runs from 11:30am – 1:00pm.
  • Clean off the kart and show it off to the fans!
  • Be at the dome by 10am to sign-in/register.

Anyone that only races on Saturday can drop off their kart on Friday night if they want. We’re able to keep the karts there overnight.

*Check out video from last year:

Here is GoPro video from Monster Jam at the Fargodome on Friday, February 1, 2013.

Races Are On!

WE WILL BE RACING THIS SATURDAY! The weather is finally cooperating with us and our first race of the Winter season in Crookston will go on as scheduled. Here are a few notes for Saturday:

- Gates open at 10:00am. 1 round of hot laps will begin at 11:00am. Race at 11:30am.

- It’s at the Red River Valley Winter Shows Building in Crookston. It’ll be in the North building. (East side double doors – look for the RRKC signs.)

- The track size will be similar to Valley City and so the setups and gearing should remain about the same.

- It’s a good idea to put labels on your tools, gas tanks, etc.

- Make sure you have all of your safety gear.

- Save some time at the sign-in table by printing and signing the waiver paperwork HERE. The Red River Valley Shows facility requires this paperwork for EVERY DRIVER participating. (Pit members or fans do not need to sign this paperwork. Only Drivers)

- The pits are smaller and so only bring in necessary items. (No trailers inside)

- There’s a limited number of outlets to use.

- Everyone will need to buy a wristband because there isn’t a clear separation from the pits and fan areas.

- There’s a small grandstand but we suggest bringing a lawn chair if you want to watch.

- Concessions will be available.

- We’re looking for a photographer/videographer for each event. (Contact Scott Sailer scott@theracinglife.com for more information)
