Scott Elkes in the 8j TaG Kart. 2008 Energy Kinetic Corse chassis powered by an IAME Parilla 125cc EasyKart engine. Fremont Raceway Park, Fremont, Ohio. May 25, 2013. Last raced here in 1965, running a 1963 Dart Grand Prix, fully modified Mac (100cc). Second shakedown day run at Fremont. No changes to tire pressure, seat position or chassis settings.
The story that almost did not happened. We ventured out about an hour away to the track only to discover it was closed. We missed the internet announcements that the track was closed for the Memorial Day Weekend. Kit Henry, the track operator, was there mowing and performing other track maintenance, told us to go ahead and run as long as we want. However, the story does not stop there... literally! Once again, the engine's internal starter failed. Having an external starter we were able to start the kart. Then the gremlins moved on to the video camera and we discovered, like the famed Nixon Tapes, had about five minutes of content missing. There was enough material to still salvage and create the movie trailer.
Track established 1961 featuring a asphalt paved 1/4 mile road course and a 1/10 mile oval in northwest Ohio.
