Bakersfield Karting Experience Summer Series Starts Friday



Prepared by Blakesley Sports Media

BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA (April 23, 2018) – After a highly successful inaugural indoor racing campaign, Bakersfield Karting Experience has set a slate of ten races for the “Indoor Summer Series”. Races will be staged on Friday nights on the 1/10th mile dirt oval for a variety of Outlaw Kart, flat Kart, and Mini Dwarf divisions. Nearly a dozen divisions will compete for points in the series.

The 2017-18 Winter Series included separate nights of competition for Outlaw Karts, Flat Karts, and Mini Dwarfs. The Outlaw Kart nights saw a season-wide average of 20 karts per event including the busy Indoor Kart Nationals in January. Open Outlaw Karts proved to be a regional draw with many racers crossing over from other valley racing divisions to compete. The all-star nature of the driver line-up is expected to continue into the summer with few conflicting dates with area race tracks.

For the 2018 Summer Series, Open Outlaw Karts will headline all ten nights of racing. Half of the shows will be designated “A” shows with stock and open flat karts and Jr. & Sr. Mini Dwarfs competing, while the “B” shows will be dedicated to Outlaw Kart classes such as Open 250 Intermediate, Box Stock, and Beginner Box Stock.

Racing begins April 27th with the first A show while May 25th will be the first B show. The complete schedule is listed at the end of this press release.

Bakersfield Karting Experience is a state of the art, complete entertainment venue. RC car racing, oval dirt kart racing, golf simulator, arcade games, and food and drink specials. BKE is open to the public 6 days a week with karts available for rent for a single race or for group outings. It is the only indoor public rental kart dirt oval in the world. Birthday parties and private room rentals round out the extensive options for a night out or for a great get together.

Tate Sanders won Friday's season finale for Outlaw Karts

Release prepared by Blakesley Sports Media

BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA (March 3, 2018) – Friday's sixth and final race of the 2017-18 inaugural Open Outlaw Kart series at Bakersfield Karting Experience saw Tate Sanders storm to his third consecutive victory while Larry Moody of Templeton did enough to win the series championship.

19 Outlaw Karts competed on the state of the art 1/10th mile dirt oval with three heat races and a B Main helping set the lineup for the 25 lap feature. Chris McKellar jumped out to the early lead with fifth starting Joey Yantis quickly into second. Sanders followed the pair for a three car breakaway throughout the feature.

Moody ran as high fourth before dropping out of the race during a caution period. Sanders used the numerous restarts to take over second from Yantis and set his sights on McKellar. After several laps running nose to tail, Sanders dove inside down the backstretch to take the lead out of turn four. Sanders led the final three circuits for the $400 victory with McKellar and Yantis the top-three. Bryce Cooper finished a career-best fourth and Bryan Watson used a fifth place to finish just three points behind Moody in the final championship points.
