What a Great turnout for the 11th annual vintage weekend. Many of the karters had great things to say about the track improvements. The karters had So much fun that many will be back for the 12th annual.  So many karters thanked the Traeders for putting on one of the best events they have been to this year.

We look foward to seeing you all next year.

The race show and class structure has not changed and will still be the same that it has been for the past 5 years. Exceptions to this are the 450 saw class rear single engine.

There is NO tire rule this year. There will be one slated for 2013 But until then we will run this event as we have been.

TNT Kartways & Staff  look foward to putting on one fantastic weekend for this event. SO DONT MISS IT !!!!!
