To me, there are a number of American summer traditions that will never grow old.  There’s no place better than being at a baseball game on a warm night, a picnic just isn’t the same without some Kool Aid and apple pie, and a summer isn’t really complete until you’ve been go kart racing.  Yes folks, summer time is a particularly special time for us Americans.  We love enjoying the warm weather, the seasonal athletics and of course the abundance of entertainment.  If you think you’re working too much this summer or spending too much time on the couch at home, all of us here at Speed Raceway have a few great ideas to help remind you what summer is really about!
