Blue Max is excited to be nearing it's first race of 2013 on March 3rd. This will be the first race of seven total club races, 5 at home and two away. These races include the revamped original Tri County Series (formerly crossover), and the annual Clonefest featuring the Hard Hustling 100 clone shootout. We will also have the newly formed Norcal Shifter Karts making a stop at Blue Max as part of their traveling club race series. Also making a stop on the schedule will be the traveling NFRA. The famed Blue Max will host the First Tri-County race in June. Then it's off to the newly refurbished Little 99 in Stockton in July. The series will finish up in August when it makes the final stop at the twisty turns of Prairie City hosted by All Star Racing. Blue Max Kart Club understands the high cost of racing and tight household budgets so it has decided to give the racers a break and offer a shorter season hosting five at home and two away races. We are trying to do our part to help build kart counts back up. Not only that we are offering a discounted membership at only $200.00. This offer will be good up until the first race on March, 3.
