    Tuxedo Park Raceway - Crete, NE (Saturday Nights)

    We started breaking ground this week. Pictures are available on our FB site. We are still pushing to practice on Saturday May 26th.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone racing again on Saturday nights in Eastern Nebraska.

    Looking for and calling on any open motored karts to come and race this Saturday nite, looks to be a great place to race and hoping to get things started off with a good field. I wasn't able to be there last week, but from all reports, the track was smooth and fast, which shows the promoter, Nick Dice, is committed to making it the very best place to race it can be. Hope to see a big field Saturday!

    Great place to race! Fast wide 1/6mi with some banking in the corners, alot of hard work and effort has been put in to make this place a reality, and it shows, the future for Saturday nite kart racing in eastern looks bright to say the least!

    Based on what I've run with my outlaw motor, I'd think about 14/65 would get you close to start with on a #35 chain

    Where there any Adult Clones out there last night? I took some time today to read the rule. I see that the track is under NKA rules, which means all Flat Kart engines must follow NKA rules and specs. Does this means that you have to have two engines, AKRA for Eagle and NKA for Tuex? That's if you want you go to both places?

    Thanks for the reply Don. I'll tell you what I going to do, I've got a clone shortblock with a billet rod. I ordered parts this morning to build a modified . It will be a small open. It won't be big power, but should enough to at least get some seat time.

    That's pretty much what everyone has, though a mixture of modified clones, black predators and Briggs animals, so that should fit in just fine....

    I saw a video on Facebook of last Saturday nite Outlaw Feature. The Fella with 2 Stroke was crazy fast, you could see it on the straight away. Whats he got KT100?

    You can see the video on Facebook Tuxedo Park Raceway page. It's was taken with phone, so the quality isnt the greatest. It looked like a really good race.

    Eagle's rules are 2016 AKRA which meet NKA standards. Shouldn't be an issue.

    Let me know if you have any other questions

    Thank you for clarification concerning my question Nick. I didn't realize Eagle was using 2016 AKRA rules. I guess I should have called you. Dumb me.
