New Track Will Provide New Challenge For Outlaw Kart Drivers



Eureka, CA (August 23, 2018) – It’s been a long two months for outlaw kart racers in the Humboldt County area. The most recent race occurred all the way back on June 21st during the Redwood Acres Fair. The delay between then and this Saturday was for good reason as this weekend’s Humboldt Outlaw Kart races will be the dawn of a new era for outlaw kart racing in the area.

A brand-new permanent 1/8-mile track has been built in place of the fairgrounds’ old rodeo arena which is in the southwest portion of Redwood Acres, adjacent to the BMX track. The previous 1/10-mile dirt circuit was located in the infield of the 3/8-mile paved Redwood Acres Raceway oval. However, other motorsport events necessitated the track having to be restored throughout the year. The new track will be to the benefit of racers and fans and the new, bigger track will provide a new challenge for the drivers. The Mill Yard will be presenting this Saturday’s races and all six divisions will be participating.

The beautiful new outlaw kart bullring would not have been possible without the hard work and support of numerous people. Thank you to Ryan Ahrens, Nick Green, John Jameson, Kevin Jameson, Jamie Jorgensen, Jordan Miclette, Casey Mitchell and Ryan Walters for their dedication to not only seeing the new track come to fruition but for going above and beyond in making it a place we can all be proud of. Humboldt Outlaw Karts would also like to thank our division sponsors Champagne Attorney Service for the beginner box stocks, Williamson Financial Group for the box stocks, Wes Green Landscaping for the 125/250cc karts, Fortuna Wheel & Brake for the old fart karts, Miclette Family Racing for the pure stocks and NorCal Automotive for the 500cc/open karts. Also a huge thank you to Wes Green Landscaping, Steve’s Septic Service, Eureka Payments, John’s Used Cars And Wreckers, Automotive Workshop & Fabrication, The Mill Yard and Ultimate Yogurt for sponsoring the Humboldt Outlaw Kart races.

Gates for this Saturday’s event open at 10:00 AM. Mud packing will take place at 2:30 PM with racing starting at 3:00 PM. For more information on this weekend’s exciting action, visit Humboldt Outlaw Karts’ website at www.HumboldtOutlawKarts.com or on Facebook www.facebook.com/HumboldtOutlawKarts/
