We have picked what appear to be the most popular classes to run in the groups. Race Group 3 is designed with "open" classes to allow just about anybody the chance to run in a second run group to get more track time and race a second class during the event. Or, if your kart doesn't fit into any of the other classes, then one of the classes in Group 3 will surely work out for you.

Remember - due to noise restrictions, setups for large silencers and airboxes are highly encouraged. No refunds if you get dinged for violating the db limits. Ask here if you need help determining how to setup your kart properly.
Due to track requirements, minors (under 18) will not be allowed to run this event. We are truly sorry about that.

I tried to stop by each pit and thank you for coming. If I missed you, I would like to say "Thank you!" for making the event a success. Special thanks go out to all of the long-haul racers from Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and Southern California. We had several Novices out for the first time and I’m sure they still have smiles on their faces.

As a reminder, if Infineon is declared a wet event and you do not wish to race in the rain, you may roll your entry over to the round #2 at Thunderhill. You must be present at the track to roll your entry over. So, mount up those rain tires. It is the best way to ensure that it will be a sunny day!

2/1/2010 -- Please Support The Infineon Event
Fellow Karters,

NCK is a non-profit member-based organization. We strive to provide a venue for road races in the west. We do our best to keep prices as low as we can considering the rising costs associated with renting tracks and the lack of prime dates that we receive. We are scheduled to race on Saturday, February 13th at Infineon. We currently lack enough entries to even come close to covering a portion of the expenses. Unfortunately, our bank account is not infinite. There is no bailout coming for kart road racing. We either make it or we don't. Without the support of the racers, our current four race series could be significantly impacted by a poor turnout for this first race. The current forecast shows no rain on Saturday although that is still 12 days away. The track charges us regardless of whether we race in the rain or not.

The bottom line is this: We must be able to cover expenses or we can fold the tent and find another hobby. You, the racers, are the only ones who can decide our fate. Remember that pre-registration will close early, so avoid the late fees.

Thank you,
Mark Morrison, President NCK
The NCK Board

11/3/2009 -- Change to TAG Starter Rule
At previous NCK events, a working starter was required in TAG classes per IKF rules. This was a pre-tech item. IKF has changed the ruling on starters (see section 275.1.8). Summary of new rule: At Pre-Tech, engine must have all starter system components intact and connected properly

As a result, NCK will immediately apply this standard as Pre-Tech for TAGs for the remainder of 2009. So, the components must be there, including a battery, and it must all be connected properly, but it does not have to function.

11/2/2009 -- Thunderhill Is Only 5 Days Away!
