St. Johns, PA (11/14/2016) During their inaugural season under management of Jason Makarewicz, Gene Ostrowski and Director of Racing Operations, Jeff Owler, Evergreen Raceway held a handful of Karting events. The shows, which were held in conjunction with a few of the Enduro events, were successful. However, the Karts just carried too much speed on the third mile asphalt oval and track management decided to take the remaining Karting events off of their schedule.
Looking forward toward the 2017 racing season, management has been heavily pursuing quotes to create a much smaller track for the Karting events. The Kart track is planned to utilize the existing front stretch and victory lane road. The two will be tied together with tight corners, giving it a mini Martinsville type of look.
“When we told all of the Karting folks after their last event at the track that we were taking their remaining events off of the schedule, they were bummed. Yet they understood why”, said Ostrowski.
“Jeff, Jason and I discussed it on a regular basis since and we’re going to do everything possible to get a nice track in place for the kids and adults, especially for the kids. They’re the future of the sport and putting a track in for them will be a major investment that we all believe will really pay off in the future.”
Evergreen Raceway is actively looking for any business owner who would like to invest in the making of mini Evergreen. If interested, please contact Makarewicz, Ostrowski or Owler by clicking the contact tab at EvergreenracewayPark.com.
At this point in time it is uncertain which day of the week Karting events will be held, or which divisions will be in place to begin with.
