Junior Champ Kart Racing Revs Up for Second Season at Thunder Road

 

Thunder Road officials announced today that the Junior Champ Kart summer youth racing series will return for a second season at the speedway. The series for racers ages 6 to 14 debuted in 2016, marking the return of go-karts to Thunder Road after a long hiatus.

 

This season, teams will be competing on a new go-kart track constructed as part of the recently announced repaving project. The independent oval track sits just inside the backstretch of the larger stock car speedway.
