NEW DATE: Saturday April 17th will be the first NHKA road race.

Great news! New Hampshire Motor Speedway has given us a better date for the season’s first road race: Saturday April 17, 2010. No snow or run off. No freezing temperatures. No conflict with Easter or the NJ race. No excuses!

If you have already sent in your pre-entry for the 3rd, you’re all set. If you entered but can’t make the new date just email Lee leec@nhka.net.

We still need a minimum of 100 entries to run the event. The new deadline for pre-entries is March 12, 2010. So if you haven’t entered yet, Download the pre-entry form and mail it in today!

As we had planned for the previously announced date, this will be a doubleheader. More great news is the track has granted us Friday evening entry from 6-9pm. So if you want to come early for safety tech and to be set up for a busy Saturday of racing, you can camp at the track.

Why the sudden change? We have a new person to work with at the track who has said he wants to help us build the club back up. Could this mean additional road racing dates this season? Possibly. A strong turn out on April 17th would go a long way to proving that NHKA makes dollars and sense for the track. If we want the track to care about karting, we need to show how much we care about karting. Get those entries in!
