Backwards/Fun Race Weekend 10/10 - 10/11

The weekend of October 10 and 11 is our annual Backwards and Fun Race weekend. We will need volunteers on hand beginning Saturday October 11 at 9AM to change the track from the normal/counter-clockwise configuration to the backwards/clockwise configuration. The track will be open as soon as the configuration or 10AM, whichever is later. On Sunday, a $15 entry/pit pass will allow a driver to enter as many events they want that day. Kid Karts will get free race entry all weekend, though Kid Kart crew members will still need a pit pass. Come and enjoy one last hurrah before you put your karts away for the season!

See What Badger Kart Club is All About

If you've just heard of kart racing, or karting, and you're not really sure what it is, this video will give you an idea. Many people think of the karts you see at amusement parks or in Wisconsin Dells when they think go karts, but our racers take it to another level. Badger Kart Club members race purpose-built racing machines powered by 2-cycle or 4-cycle engines capable of speeds over 60 miles per hour. Our members all own their own karts and equipment. Our members participate in races from our the club points series, with some participating in races at the top levels of the sport. If you've seen the show "Kart Life," you've seen some Badger Kart Club members.

Want to see what it's all about? Come out as a spectator to one of our races. Admission is free, you can bring your whole family. Enjoy a picnic on our grounds, or get a bite to eat at our Karter's Kafe. There is no cost to mingle in the paddock with the drivers and mechanics and ask them questions.


New Member Referral Program

Badger Kart Club will be starting a new referral rewards program for members who recruit other members. If an existing member refers a new member, the existing member will receive a free membership for the next season. Additionally, existing members will receive 5 free practice/pit passes when the new member competes in 2 championship races and an additional 10 free practice/pit passes when the new member completes in a total of 8 championship races. There is no limit on the number of referrals. For additional details, click to download this information sheet.


Bring Membership Cards to Registration

To ensure faster service at the registration building on Sunday, please have your 2015 Badger Kart Club membership card ready to present to the volunteers in the registration building. This will help us make sure everyone is charged the correct amount while keeping the line moving as quickly as possible. Thanks for your help!
