Kart Races
Missing Go Kart Starters.... On Friday evening we went to get out our Starters for the Weekend Kart Races and to our surprise they were missing.  We bought these Starters ($300 apiece) for the convenience of our racers. So if you or someone you know have them we ask that you please return them. (With no questions asked). As most of you know we have had low Kart counts this year and it's costing us money to put on these go kart shows. With that being said we are canceling 5 of the scheduled events that we had planned this year. We have tried the best we can to make things work and put on good shows. We can't continue to lose money every week and waste our time. Blow are the last three race events that we will put on this year! Thank you to the people who do show up and support OMP Kart Races.

Clone Jr. Class Read Up!!
Owosso is going to try something new with the clone jr. class starting Fri.Aug.30th! AKRA rules are that clone jr. runs a .550 plate at a weight of 300lbs.
WKA rules state clone jr is unrestricted and thats what we have run for the past two years with No Success! The other thing that has influenced this decision is, that where do our Purple Plate Clone kids go next? Without this .550 plate class it's just too big of a jump to go unrestricted.
Yes, I know here I go again changing the rules. LOL
Since there are only two kids that run this class from week to week I don't think it's going to be a problem.

2013 Update
Mar 04 2013, 10:26
Sorry for the lack of info and response I've had to the Owosso Kart Speedway site. I have been very busy this winter with work and other projects. As time seems to pass so very quickly, here we are again about to start another season, so let's talk a little racing. We have a full schedule for 2013, I'm just waiting on a couple of small things to come together to complete the schedule. Most everything is the same for 2013, there are just a couple of small rule changes. First is the Purple Plate Clone and Red Plate Clone classes they are going to be required to run the small weenie pipe and a 14 tooth drive gear. This should help slow the little guys down a bit! This should be a simple process, the weenie pipe cost only about $25 and from there, just a little bit of jetting should have you rockin. Second is that everyone is going to be required to have the universal starting nut that fits all electric starters. We will have them available at the swap meet and always have stock at the track. I'm going to purchase a couple of starters to have in the infeild to help speed the restart process up a little.
Now to answer some of the questions that have been posted on the track talk portion of the site. Running the Heavy class with the Senior Stock class I'm fine with that but I'm not sure how the Seniors will feel about that. So seniors speak now if this will be a problem with you guys? Sr. Champs, heck yeah I would love to see a more regular turnout for this class. So to get it going I think we have to go through the process of growing this class. So the weeks we don't enough Champs we can combine them with other classes.
I will be a the swamp meet on March 10th with the full schedule and to answer any questions. See you all soon!
