This Saturday, September 16th – IKS Season Finale
NHKA Race 9 and Your Last Shot at Canaan this Season

And all of a sudden, here we are at the last race of the 2017 Interstate Kart Series and the second to last race for the NHKA Racing Series powered by K1 Speed. While we’re clicking off the milestones, it makes sense to note that this will be the season’s last race at Canaan Motor Club.The track has been awesome for the club this year, giving us the opportunity to bring kart road racing back to the Northeast for the first time in nearly a decade. Clearly you guys love it, as show by the record-breaking number of entries at our last event on the big track! Dave Delgenio has been super supportive helping the NHKA make the most of this unique facility.

We will be racing on the sprint/half-track configuration everyone knows well. All the usual track procedures will be in effect this weekend, with Friday entry 5-10pm. There is a $25 camping fee to be paid directly to the track, also, pre-race safety tech and registration will be available. The gates, tech and registration all open again at 7am.

This weekend’s trophy sponsor is Lecam Machine Company.

Road Racing Doubleheader at Canaan Motor Club
NHKA Races 6+7 – August 12+13, 2017

It was another great race day with 83 competitors at the NHMS Hill Course for Race 5 of the NHKA Racing Series powered by K1 Speed. Thanks again to K.R.G. Motorsports and the Georgantas family for sponsoring the trophies.

All eyes now turn back to Canaan Motor Club for our huge doubleheader weekend August 12th & 13th. For the last time this season we will be on the full 1.4 mile road course, utilizing the same race procedures as we did for KartMania with one big difference – two races worth of NHKA championship points will be on the line! That means all NHKA rules will apply. 

Saturday August 12th will be NHKA Race 6 with trophies sponsored by DD2 racer Ed Chappee’s Hurricane Racing out of North Conway, NH. Sunday the 13th will be NHKA Race 7 with long-time series supporters Adirondack Radiation Therapy picking up the tab for the trophies. It’s great to have TaG Senior driver Kent Vaccaro and his dad Tony back at the track with us.

As if this doubleheader weren’t exciting enough, NHKA will also be hosting the North East Super Series. Tim Hannen and crew draw a loyal following of some of the best racers from New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. These guys are FAST! Super Series racers will be following their own rules and scored separately, but mixed in with NHKA racers on track. Think of KartMania and its huge packs of karts going at it hard for the entire 30 minutes. Now add even more karts and pump up the intensity. As awesome as the racing has been all season, we’re thinking this doubleheader could be event everyone talks about for years.

Please stay tuned to this website, our Facebook page and your inbox for more event details as they come available.

Saturday July 22nd – Race 5 of the NHKA Racing Series
On the Hill Course at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Was KartMania 2!!! a blast or what?! So much close racing in every class from green to checkers. Be sure to checkout the onboard videos shared to the club’s Facebook page, they are amazing. Thank you to all who attended and for the cooperation that made it possible for us to get in a full day of racing Saturday despite the passing showers. A great time was had by all at the cookout party sponsored by NHKA, Dave Nadeau, Lefty’s Brewing, Lecam Machine, and of course our members. Special thanks to Doreen Simpson, the Bowin family, Jan Oliver and Tina Camarra for all the planning, coordination and set up, and to your grill masters Eric Stockford and Lee Camarra. Congrats to Lee and his teammate Tim Ferraro for their win in the Cornhole tournament, and thanks to Jim Slade for keeping the tournament running smoothly. Thank you Joey Kolbe for lending his photography to the club and sharing his work with the members through Facebook. And, finally, some great news: After his nasty wreck Sunday morning, Donat is back home and expected to make a full recovery. We hope to see you back at the track soon!

With KartMania in the rearview mirror, all eyes are focused forward on championships. Saturday’s Race 5 of the NHKA Racing Series powered by K1 Speed marks the midpoint of the 2017 season. By the time the sunsets, we’ll know who might have the momentum to carry them to the big trophy. Speaking of trophies, big thanks to Kevin and Richard Georgantis of KRG Racing for sponsoring this event’s hardware. The forecast is great and we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
