Kartington coming back! Don't miss the action!
The Trickiest Track in Ohio.
1/7th Mile Asphalt Racing Oval.
A compelling story, Kartington Raceway idled since the one race it held in 2010; and in it's heyday had 125-150 karts racing every week. The video was created to communicate the coming back of their first race Sunday, Oct 28, 2012. The track was endangered with Mother Nature overtaking the site. A young man contacted the owner in June and the owner gave him the keys and told him to go for it. The young man started preparing the site and was injured where he worked. After he healed, it was mid-September, the owner called the karting community for volunteers to help clean up the track to get at least one race in this year--shooting for Oct. 28th. The movie shows some of the volunteers at work and of course, play. Kart #10 features two drivers--Shania Bland (Blue helmet), Scott Elkes (Black helmet) and Madison Bland in #4 kart. Scott's 1st time in a competition kart in over 45 years.
