THE MAN is looking forward in attending his 3rd event of 2016!!! One month ago I wasn’t going to be able to make it but now, I will be there to support this super event put on by KART/MARRS as just a spectator.
Even though my drivers (Brad, Lindsay) won’t be there since we have sold their karts, I will still be bringing a trailer load of karts and wrenching for a couple of drivers.
Get a chance, drop by my trailer and check out the remaining items I have to sell. Everything is priced to sell and is good stuff!!!
Se you all soon.

If it isn’t right, clutch won’t be right either. Clutch is like a dummy (not you Ric)!!! Clutch only puts the amount of power to the axle as the carb and motor puts to the clutch. I proved this to a competitor at Afton a few weeks back.
You all keep this up and you will have ALL my SECRETS!!! LOLSeptember 26, 2016 at 8:40 am #72140
If this is the question, Ric pretty much hit it on the head!! Glad I taught him well!!! LOL
Getting it close in the pits keeps you from over/under slipping it to much once you hit the track. With this, on track is the true final setting as this is where everything gets up to temp.
As for where to set the clutch engagement, most generally it is within 200RPM of the max torque of the motor.September 12, 2016 at 8:36 am #71590

The READ family would like to THANK ALL THE RACERS, FAMILIES & FRIENDS who supported this event!!! Even thou we haven’t been able to race this year due to certain circumstances, it was well worth all the work it took to put this event on with what mother nature dealt us from Wed-Fri. It’s been awhile since THE MAN has had to work that hard to get a track green and ready by Saturday morning!! THANKS to everyone for your patience while we worked to get the track ready to go. Only being 1 hour late starting is amazing to me!! I owe a big THANKS to my family (Donna, Brad, Lindsay), All our friends (YES, I do have a couple) who were there to help including way early Saturday morning to help sweep the track.
As for the turnout and the racing, AWESOME!!! Turnout was up from the April event. Racing was once again unbelievable!! I lost count on just how many races were decided by the main flagman and Maysha in scoring as there were many finishes that they had to visual decide who went across the line first.
Congrats to all the lucky winners of the items that were given out throughout the weekend.
We look forward in seeing everyone back in 2o17.

Just an FYI!!!
You want to be at this event!!!!!!!
Lindsay has been doing some great work in getting things to raffle off for this event. She has $50.00 Carlos O Kelly’s gift cards, gift baskets, free motel rooms, Spangle gift cards, free entries and working on more!!! I may just have to throw in a “THE MAN” autograph!! LOL !! PLUS, it’s not costing the racer a penny (outside of entering) to have a chance to win any of these items!! You get a ticket when you enter. Be sure to enter before noon on Saturday (hint hint).
Just come and have a FUN FUN time!!!! The READ family is getting fired up as we have missed not racing this year and want to show our appreciation to everyone for supporting our event.August 11, 2016 at 8:03 am #70317
READ RACING wishes everyone a SAFE & FUN weekend!!!! We wish we could attend but HAYWIRED (Brad) has shows both Friday & Saturday nite.July 25, 2016 at 12:58 pm #69635
I don’t like getn the shaft either (been there done that over my many years in karting) BUT, there are always 2 sides (even more at times) to a story. I’m not here to pick sides as there is no one here or even the people involved that I am BEST friends with!!!!
I took it upon myself to look into this and after talking to several people including reading some texts that went back and forth (including some who have posted on here), there is more to this then what it sounds to be from the original post. Not saying that some things are not right from what I found out but, there is more to the story!!!! Without making some people look bad, I will just leave at that.
I will say that rather it’s myself or whoever, I don’t believe this is the place to discuss things like this here or on any forum (my opinion only). Tell your friends, fellow racers, etc, but here??July 20, 2016 at 1:11 pm #68895
I’m not askn you to post the name on here but would you mind sending me a PM??June 9, 2016 at 7:02 am #67047
You trying to say something?? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like this event went very well. Glad to hear that!!!! GREAT job everyone!!!May 31, 2016 at 9:10 am #66639
Gas pumps will be available. SunocoMay 24, 2016 at 6:32 am #66352
Glen, you beat us to the punch!!!
Saturday will be ran CW, Sunday will be ran CCW. This allows the KART officials to see which way is best to run their KART NATLS in October.
Entry form and event schedule is on the KART web site (www.kart.org).
You will notice that for this event that there is a SPRINT TAG EVO class. Weight is 385#.
The READ family wishes everyone a SAFE & FUN weekend as we will not be able to make this event due to SHOWTIME (HAYWIRED) has 2 major shows scheduled we cannot miss. Not everyday you get to perform at these events that his manager (Lindsay) got them in on this weekend.

The READ family wishes everyone a good, safe weekend and that we will be thinking of you!!! It’s been a LONG LONG time since someone from this family hasn’t been able to attend Garnett.May 3, 2016 at 6:49 pm #65351

Ben, I text Lindsay to see if she could put a link on here.April 28, 2016 at 11:41 am #65113
I’m not smart enough (NO COMMENTS) to put a link here but, Lindsay has over 700 pictures she took during the weekend on her facebook page.April 25, 2016 at 7:52 am #64936
Thanks to all the racers and families who were able to make it this past weekend. Seeing new people get into the sport was awesome. Seeing the Reverly family after making the 12 hour drive was also special especially to the READ family. We had a good event with great weather other than the good old Kansas wind. Everyone who we spoke to had a great time. THANK YOU ALL from the READ family!!!!
Since everyone was pleased with the way SHOWTIME handled the flagging, maybe he just needs to do it again in September and let THE MAN get behind the wheel!!!!!!!
Hope to see you all back September 10/11 for our fall race.
THE MANApril 19, 2016 at 9:21 am #64657
Make that 2 pitchers!!! I’m thinkn myself and Donna will need a few!!!! LOL
OK RACERS, if ur not ready to load yet, GET THERE!!!! 3 days before move in time. Hope to see all of our regulars and any new racers that can attend. Going to be a GREAT weekend of racing!!!!!!!!!
THE MANApril 14, 2016 at 10:49 am #64421
On the schedule posted on the KART web site, I will be moving the SPRINT YAMAHA CIK I class that’s in race 4 and put it in race 1 on Saturday to accommodate a few racers. This class will get the checkered at the 30 minute mark.March 28, 2016 at 11:47 am #63489
Thanks my FRIEND!!! That would be a 5.0 we would run on a Piston port at AMP. Kids run a 4.5 at Afton. Sounds like it could be the same to 2-3 more teeth then Hallett. This could be a fun fun track!!!
What class, motor?? If it’s the same package Lindsay ran at Daytona, I would start with a 4.5. I know that Brad runs 6-8 less teeth on his control vs his P.P. at 410#.March 25, 2016 at 12:08 pm #63375
How about helping us MIDWESTERNERS who plan to go??? As you know, I don’t like to work on them at the track so, BE RIGHT ON!!!! LOL
Whoops, I probably shouldn’t have let the cat out of the bag telling everyone that MT POCKETS RACING will be at this event. Sure hate to scare the competition off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!February 3, 2016 at 12:04 pm #60570

The city booked the county fair the same weekend that we had the KART event scheduled for the 6/7. Felt it be best to move it a week later vs dealing with the fair!!!!
