K1 Speed is the place to be for the Daytona 500
K1 Speed Blog - go karts, karting and go-kart race events
With the busy race weekend ahead, K1 Speed is the place to be for all of your kart racing and NASCAR viewing enjoyment! With the Gatorade Duel 150′s on Thursday, the NASCAR Camping World Truck series race on Friday night, the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday and the Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500 on Sunday, K1 Speed has put together this special offer – come in Sunday to any K1 Speed location and take advantage of our special offer to buy 2 races and get 1 race free, all for just $40. This will probably be an emotional weekend for NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt, Jr, who initially won the pole but now has to start in the back on Sunday because of a wreck in practice Wednesday, because this 500 marks the 10th anniversary of his father’s passing in the 2001 race. A moment of silence will be held on the 3rd lap of the race to honor Dale Earnhardt, Sr, The Intimidator, for his many accomplishments, and remarkable legacy.
K1 Speed also has a busy weekend of kart racing ahead with two K1 Challenge GP events on Sunday with K1 Irvine holding round 2 of its current series Sunday morning and K1 Carlsbad holding its GP later that evening. Both locations should be busy all day but will definitely have some great racing action for anyone in attendance – don’t miss out!
