A small rain shower during the heat races didn’t stop the action Monday night! Check out the picture gallery from this week. (Courtesy: Stevenator Photography) Any of the club’s pictures can be downloaded to share or print for free.
Here are some club notes:
If you have items on your kart that the tech inspector found to be incorrect, please fix them A.S.A.P.. It’s the rules and most importantly it’s for the safety of everyone.
Please make sure your kart is staged and ready to go when your race comes up. The line-up board will have the race order. We might not wait for you next time.
Exact change (or a check) would be very helpful and quicker when signing-in.
We’re looking for a person to collect the 50/50 tickets for about an hour each race night. It’s helps fund the club and and 1 lucky person’s wallet! (Call/text Nick Skalicky 701-261-3673 if you’d like to help do this)
We’ll be electing a 3-member board very soon and if you want to be a candidate, contact Nick Skalicky.
The special go-kart race at Norman County Raceway will be held on Saturday, June 22 as scheduled. If you signed up, be there before 5pm. If you’d like to race, contact Nick Skalicky.
We’re looking for more teams to sign-up for Norman County Raceway’s special kart racing event Saturday, June 22. Kid, kart and family members get into the pits for FREE! If you haven’t already signed-up, please call/text Nick Skalicky ASAP at: 701-261-3673. We need to have enough teams signed-up otherwise we’ll have to cancel the event. Thanks!

The weather has not been cooperating with us this spring and the rain we had today didn’t help. We’re postponing the races to Tuesday (June 11) to give the grounds one more day to dry out. We’re still planning on a “test & tune” for the first hour. (6:30pm – 7:30pm) Then at 7:30pm we’ll have heat races (only one heat) followed by a feature race. We’ll be back to a normal schedule Monday, June 17. For those in the pit area, please don’t drive through the drainage ditch on the east side of the pits. And for everyone else, if you see water, don’t drive through it. We don’t want anyone to get stuck out there. Our delicious concessions will be in full force so come hungry and we’ll see you on Tuesday!
Due to the large amount of rain the track has received, we unfortunately have to cancel the season opener on Monday. The ditches around the track are still full of water making it impossible for the fans to park and the pit area is also very soft. And the overcast skys, low temperatures and forecasted precipitation will not be helping the drying process this weekend. Let’s hope for warm, dry weather this coming week and we’ll see you on Monday, June 10th!
We’re less than a week away to the first race! Monday will be the start to our Summer Asphalt Series in West Fargo, ND. Here are some notes as we begin the 2013 season:
Try to get there early on Monday because we’ll have membership forms and minor release forms for everyone to fill out.
Due to requests to have a “test & tune,” we’ll devote the first hour to testing. (6:30pm – 7:30pm) Then at 7:30pm we’ll have heat races (only one heat) followed by a feature race. Then on June 10th we’ll be back to a normal schedule of 2 heat races and a feature.
It’s highly suggested that you sign-up for our Cancellation Notices. We can send out schedule changes immediately to your cell phone and/or e-mail as soon as we know.
