Join us for our first annual Tasha Fester Memorial Race! We’re honoring our beloved Tasha with 2 weekends of racing at 3 different tracks – Alexandria, Atwater, and Westport! This series will include a nightly payout for all classes EXCLUDING Rookie Cage, Rookie Flat, and Sportsman – 10 kart minimum for payout.
1st – $306
2nd – $156
3rd – $76

Kart entry fee will be $50 for Payout classes, regular entry fees for Rookie Cage, Rookie Flat and Sportsman.

There will be a Series Points Fund. This amount will be funded from Sponsors and donations at a minimum, the Series Payout amounts will be
1st Place Points $250
2nd Place Points $200
3rd Place Points $150
4th Place Points $100
5th Place Points $50

We welcome donations to help support the Points Fund – Venmo @AtwaterKartingSpeedway but make sure the description specifies that the payment is a Series donation. You can also make donations to the non-payment classes and those donations will be split between all 3 tracks for nightly payouts.

June 9 – Westport

Here is some quick reference information for the Tasha Fester Memorial Race Series that starts next week, June 7th-9th. Please visit the event page or MyRacePass for more info!
**Please note ALL 3 tracks will be mandating Hoosier tires for all winged classes for the entire series. Also transponders and receivers are mandatory. We do have limited availability to rent at the track.**

🚥 Green flag will drop at 4:30 on Saturday, June 8th in Atwater!

Kart Entry Fees for payout classes are $50. Rookie Cage, Rookie Flat, and Sportsman will be the normal $35 with no payouts. No additional kart discounts for this race because of the payouts.
Pit passes are $20 for the series.

Payouts are as follows (assuming 10 karts per class) :
🥇1st $306
🥈2nd $156
🥉3rd $76
If 10 karts do not register per class we will be paying out a percentage of the above payouts depending on how many karts are registered for that given class. Example: 8 karts registered will be 80% of the payouts listed above and so on.

Lastly, plan on attending the Runestone Go Kart Association at Runestone Raceway & Minnewaska Area Go Kart Racing Association tracks the day prior and after (June 7 & 9) so you get as many points as possible for the series points fund that will accumulate at all 3 tracks for both weekends of the series. This will be paid AFTER the second series race in August and is an additional payout from the nightly payouts listed above.

💰 If you would like to contribute to the series points fund you can send donations on Venmo to @AtwaterKartingSpeedway or @RunestoneRaceway. Donations can go toward any class and any place so have fun with it! The idea is that someone that doesn’t make it in the 1st-5th place points finish can still get payouts and, likewise, 2nd place could potentially receive more than 1st place if they get more designated donations and so on. Please specify if you want to designate it to a certain points finisher in a specific class (example: 10th place finisher for Rbox.)
