      The 10th annual RoboPong 200 is set for this weekend at the popular New Castle Motorsports Park. The 1-mile circuit in Indiana will welcome karting’s best along with big names in motorsports. This year’s race is later in the year then normal, and thus one extra challenge of battling the weather will be a factor. Temperatures are expected to be in the low 50s, with late night temps into possible freezing temps.

      Updates will be posted here throughout the weekend, beginning tomorrow with links to the Official Event Page to keep up on the entire event.

      It’s only 5 hr’s for me to go there.  How many karts do you expect for the race and do you still race if it rains?  I don’t want to go there and then only see 8 or 9 karts in a class.

       

      thanks  paul

      Paul, There are only 4 classes for this event, Yamaha Jr. Sportsman, Yamaha Jr., Yamaha Sr. and the Robopong 200 for TAG.

        With lots of money on the line for all classes ($10K to win the Robopong 200) there will be plenty of people to race with.

      This in not counting the Dan Wheldon Pro-Am Challenge charity race to benefit the Alzheimers Foundation.

       

      If you come to the race come and visit the tower, I’ll be the announcer for the weekend.

      Great weekend of racing, this event has certainly become one of the “Crown Jewels” of karting. It was good seeing you there David.

      I had a blast.

      If you miss this event you are truly not a karter!   1st class race, 1st class facility, 1st class management….     The competition is the best in the country..   Bring your A game!!

      We spend our money on Racin, Whiskey and Women.... The rest we waste....

      Correct Doug. It was a great start for the young guys. A little bit of contact here and there, but that’s expected with 37 on track.  And what a finish – three wide to the final corner.

      If you haven’t already, check out the race report

      All 37 Jr Sportsman racers lining up for the final…with no major incidents during the start…not bad for 8-12YO racers.
