AKRA Returns Regional-Level Racing to Maryland’s Nicholson Speedway

Nicholson Speedway club officials and members welcomed the American Kart Racing Association (AKRA) to their historic sprint track nestled near the shores of the Chester River on the Delmarva Peninsula this past August 26-28 for the fourth and final round of the 2016 Vega USA American Sprint Cup Series “Northern Tour.”

Nicholson – built in the late 1950s on Earl Nicholson Road just outside of Chestertown, Maryland – offered racers a speedy quarter-mile track that can be negotiated in less than 20 seconds by some TaG racers.

Florida’s Colin Warren, who had never turned a lap on the circuit before the event, described the track as “fast and flowing” and “very smooth.” Other racers noted they enjoyed the smoothness of the track and quick layout.
