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.
Badger Kart Club will be open for practice Wednesday Sept. 2nd through Friday Sept. 4th from 10AM to 6PM for general practice. We will be CLOSED Saturday Sept. 5th through Tuesday Sept. 8th for Labor Day. We will be open Wednesday Sept. 9th and Thursday Sept. 10th for general practice, then we welcome the Route 66 Sprint Series Friday Sept. 11th through Sunday Sept. 13th for their season finale. There will be a dinner and corn roast on Saturday Sept. 12th for Route 66 racers and Badger Kart Club members and volunteers provided by the Dousman Chamber of Commerce and the American Legion. We are still in need of volunteers for the Route 66 weekend, particularly for Friday Sept. 11th. Please contact Scott Jagush at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
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.
Special Event Volunteers Needed
Each family membership needs to work two events per season for their drivers to be eligible for year-end awards at the awards banquet. We are looking for help at the following events.
- Sept. 11-13: Route 66 Sprint Series
To sign up, please email Volunteer Coordinator Scott Jagusch at email@example.com.
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!
Free Kid Kart Entries in 2015
In an effort to grow our beginning classes and introduce more people to the sport of karting, Badger Kart Club is offering free Kid Kart race entries in 2015. Racers will be given a free pit pass when entering. An adult is required to be on track at all times with Kid Kart drivers. Pit passes for adults are $15 for members or $30 for non-members. We hope to see you this weekend for our first race!
Cadet Karts in 4-cycle Classes
To correct an error in the rule book, cadet-sized karts are not allowed in either Animal Sportsman or LO206 Sportsman. Cadet karts are only allowed in 2-cycle Junior Sportsman classes. The rule book has been updated with this correction.
