[TrackChasers] Outlaw Kart tracks
- I found some more info on the Outlaw Kart tracks in the northern
California-Nevada area. Allan, you may find this useful for the upcoming
edition of the History Book you're working on. Gary, perhaps you have some
info you can add about these and maybe other tracks you know of.
Champion Speedway in Carson City, NV, had put a dirt track in the infield of
their 1/4 mile last year for Outlaw Karts. They ran part of the season in
2002 before problems had the group moving to Thunderbowl Speedway. Champion
Speedway apparently now has put a figure eight in the infield because their
2003 schedule lists montly F8 races as part of their Saturday night shows.
In addition to the California tracks at Chico, Lakeport and Red Bluff, I
also read that they ran the Outlaw Karts at Ukiah. Is there a small dirt
oval at the same location as the 1/4 paved there too?
- On the Ukiah outlaw kart situation, for a brief period of time they had a
seperate race track on the far nothern edge of the property (put together by
rivals of the Lakeport outlaw kart promotion). The only outlaw kart race
staged at Ukiah in 2002 was back at an infield track inside the 1/4 mile
paved oval. Details about the Lakeport outlaw kart operation appear at
www.ukiahspeedway.com because Blair Aiken promotes both the Lakeport outlaw
karts and the Ukiah Speedway paved track, infield kart and motorcycle
