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.
