The 2014 Season Points Championships have now been completed. We had a great season of racing and large grid numbers. Congratulations to all of the Champions of the year! The results are posted on the Results page.
However, this does not conclude the season! We have ONE more race before the year is over, at Sonoma Raceway for our annual Western States Road Race Classic. We will also hand out championship awards after the races. We hope to see you all there!!!
And lastly, if you haven't heard, our first race of 2015 will be at Laguna Seca on January 24th.
Thunderhill West Great Race Weekend
The new Thunderhill West track seems to be a big hit with the drivers that participated in the first kart race held on the 1.8 mile layout. Lap times kept dropping as the day went on with a track best of 1:17.6 by Conner Solis, word is that is the fastest turned lap to date on the track. Big thanks for the Northwest group for coming to play with NCK and the folks from south end of the state and Vegas as well.

Willow Springs June Race Video
Here is race video from Willow Springs in June.
**Special Message from NCK Driver Larry Stevens**
"I`m doing fine now just resting. After going to the Hospital and test results I was very dehydrated but I didn't have heat stroke. I did a 20 mile bike ride on Thursday which I shouldn`t have done because the EMT and the doctor said that my dehydration started then and my body didn't have time to recover no matter how much water and Gatorade I had and because of how hot it was on race day. I learned something from this and it won`t happen again. Thanks for all Mark's and David`s help getting the karts loaded up, Valerie and myself really appreciated all the help from everyone which included Dan Solis, his wife and sister, Bryant Thomas, Mike Estrella, Jim White, and two young men that I don`t know who they were and everyone else that helped. It's a good feeling to know that I`m a part of (not just a club), but a Family that looks out for and cares about the well being others. Thank you all again and see you at the next race!"
Friday Thunderhill Race
Despite the light grid, this Friday was once again a great event for NCK. The temperature soared to over 100 but the race was still fantastic. Congratulations all of the day's winners.
Laguna Seca Thriller, Results, Next Race
Laguna Seca was an overwhelming success for those who came. Another great thriller 2-Day race weekend at the famed track. The format seemed to work well with the time allotted to us by our host Speed Ventures. The results for the race are now live on MyLaps, so please check them out on the Results Page. And as indicated below, the Points are also updated on the same page.
Our next race is August 1st at Thunderhill. It's coming up fast, so get those registrations in ASAP!!!
Some things to be aware of for Registering... Race day registration and changes will close at 9:00am. There will be no exceptions.
All waivers need to be signed and turned in to registration or the scales before entering the track.
Pre tech forms go to the scales and are exchanged for a tech sticker. Tech stickers need to be placed near your front number so the grid volunteer can see them.
Points Updated & more
Current Season Points through the Willow Sprints are posted. We appreciate your patience regarding the points not being posted to the points until now. As you should have already heard, we had a complete scoring failure due to the track equipment and were unable to do any transponder scoring. As such, the best attempt has been made to recreate the scoring, based on notes, and also multiple emails to all of the participants to get information. At this time - only a small number of drivers have been scored with actual positions, and all others that we have no information on have been given last place points in their class. So if there were 9 entries, all unknown finishers are scored 9th.
We will be happy to continue to repair the points, as long as we get further input so don't be shy, send us your best knowledge of your race, in your class.
Good news is that Laguna went flawlessly so for our points events going forward we hope to have things working.
As always, email us with any questions or concerns over the points and results.
