America: Baseball, Apple Pie and Go Kart Racing

January 16th, 2018

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!

Baseball
The Great American Pastime.  Whether you’re a fan of the game or not, spending an afternoon or night at the stadium can be a great experience!  There’s almost always great baseball to watch if you’re a true fan and the sporting atmospheres can be by far some of the best in the nation if you’re just in it for a good time.  Depending on your home town team, tickets won’t set you back that much either, with some starting at less than $10!  So take the family out, or maybe hit the game with your friends and make it a night! Who knows, maybe you’ll even watch the game if that’s what you’re in to!  Check out your favorite MLB team’s schedule here or if you’re not close to a big team maybe take a look at the future stars of the big show and catch a nearby minor league game!

Summer Picnics
Wicker baskets, red and white checkered blankets and apple pie.  If that doesn’t hit some sort of nostalgic bone if you’re body I might ask you to check your pulse!  Picnic-ing has been an American summer tradition for just about as long as anyone can remember.  With such beautiful natural scenery throughout the nation and great weather to be had, it’s not hard to see why!  And don’t forget the apple pie!  So pack up you picnic basket with all the essentials and head to your nearest park for a great day out!  If you’re really feeling adventurous, have a look at some of the country’s best spots to relax on a checkered blanket!

Go Kart RacingGo Kart Racing
We Americans sure do love our adrenaline rushes!  And when the weather turns nice we sure seem to kick it into another gear!  I remember my first summer go kart racing long ago with my dad and brother, whipping around corners, flooring it through the straights and occasionally asserting my racing dominance with a well timed bump (whoops!).  It wasn’t until I took a few laps around the track at Speed Raceway that I remembered how much I loved this summer tradition!  Perhaps it’s the competitive streak that us American’s are so famous for or maybe it’s just our love of the feeling of the wind in your hair as you go screaming down a track, but whatever it is, go kart racing is almost as American as it gets!

No matter what you’re in to, the summer always holds something that can help you get away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life.  So the next time you wake up on a weekend and consider just relaxing on the couch all day, try one of these great ideas instead!  We’re positive that you’ll have a blast and make some great memories along the way!
