The Latest at 61 Kartway


Due to the amount of rain received this morning and early afternoon at the track, the track and pit area are not suitable for racing this evening.  Thus we are issuing the first cancellation of the season, and hope to see you at the RIGP next week, and at 61K the following!


7/12/14 : July 19th Races

In memory of Kristin Hanrhan our races on the 19th will start at 2:00 so we can have a cookout immediately followig the races.  We will provide the meat, we ask that you bring a dish to share.



5/7/14 : Change of weight fo Sr. LO 206

We are making a few changes to the Sr. LO 206 class.  We orginally had the weight of kart and driver be a minimum of 375 lbs.  We feel that there is enough interest to have 2 classes; Medium with a minimum weight of 370 lbs. and Heavy with a minimum weight of 400 lbs.  We will continue to run 1 Sr. LO 206 class for now, but they will be scored separately.



5/4/14 : Practice at the track

The track is available for practice during the week and on Sundays.  Call ahead to let us know when you want to come and practice so we can meet you at the track to sign you in.  Please give us at least one day notice to make sure we are available at the time you are wanting to come.



5/4/14 : LO 206

We have had a handful of people asking about what clutch is allowed in the LO 206 classes. So we thought we should clarify. The clutch rule states....Any rim centrifugal clutch with a maximum of 9 springs and 6 shoes. No alterations to clutch, except springs. Clutch coolers not allowed.


4/11/14 : Garage stalls

There are a few garage stalls left for rent.  For $450 you get a 10x10 stall with electricity.  They make a great place to store your kart and tools so you don't have to haul them back and forth to the track. If interested please call 563-659-8900


4/11/14 :  Open for the season

The track is now open for practice. Please call the track to make arrangements to come and practice, 563-659-8900.

We are almost ready to open the track for practice. We will post on Facebook and the website when we are open for the season.

6/28/13 : KHMR Update

We are very excited for the KHMR (Kristin Hanrahan Memorial Race) on July 20th. So far there is $1500 in prizes to win that day for the Clone Heavy and Sr. Supercan classes. We have made one adjustment to the race. Like we stated in our last post we have always run the track in reverse that weekend but we have decided to make it a STANDARD/DRAW race. We feel that this will encourage more racers to get involved in this event. Remember the races start at 2:00 that day.



6/23/13 : Kristin Hanranhan Memorial Race

For the past 7 years on the 3rd Saturday of July we have had a hog roast and the races run the track in reverse. This year we are changing it up a little. Instead of a hog roast we will be having our 1st race in memory of Kristin Hanrahan. She was a sweet girl that worked at the track for a few years and she was thought of like family, unfortunately she was taken from us to soon.  In honor of Kristin on July 20th, 2013 we will continue to run the races in reverse with the addition of 2 classes, Clone Heavy and  Sr. Supercan, racing for prizes. The track will supply the meat and we ask all that come to the track that day to bring a dish to share and stay and enjoy dinner with everyone. Mark your calendars the races start at 2:00 pm that day. If the races get rained out that Saturday we will hold them the races the following day, Sunday the 21st. Please spread the word to help us make this day a day we all remember Kristin and her love for the track.



6/21/13 : Kid Karts

We are wanting to get the word out to anyone that has a son or daughter that races in the Kid Kart class that we have 2 different classes for them to run in. We have a class for those that have a Comer 51 and we have a class for those that have a LO 206. The LO 206 is new to our track. We would love to see more of them. We follow WKA rules for this class. Feel free to contact us if there are any questions.
