Wow, I can't believe it's been over two years since we opened our doors! Time really does fly when you're having fun.

We have made an effort to improve the value we offer our members here at M.I.K. Looking at the next 3 months specials we have a number of opportunities for you to save money with your racing addiction. The "Oval Track" and "Lights Out" racing seems to be the most popular events. We have also changed the NAPA 125 format with qualifying no longer required, so sign your team up ASAP...

A lot of you have asked me how to go faster on the track. The number one mistake I see is driving too aggressively. Smooth is fast- if your tires are squealing, you're losing speed. It goes against your instinct but you need to slow down before the turns; especially turn 3, so you can get on the gas just after the turn and should be on full throttle by turn 4. If you don't currently do this, work on that line and your times will improve.

Most of the staff at Maine Indoor Karting can...
