RESCHEDULED: 1st Annual GVKC Memorial Money Race

1st Annual GVKC Memorial Race

**RESCHEDULED: Due to rain, our Memorial Race events from August 21st are rescheduled to take place during our next money race, taking place on September 18th. See you there!**

Join us for a special day of racing, including a money race for senior two-cycle drivers, to honor club members and loved ones who are no longer with us. Come out and dedicate your race day to the memory of a family member or friend…all drivers and spectators are welcome, and there’s something for everyone!

Donations and drink/snack purchases throughout the day will benefit the Alan Decker Memorial Scholarship Fund, supporting individuals with financial need and a passion for karting. By covering race entry fees and other essential expenses, the fund helps mini-grant recipients to continue doing what they love, while benefitting our club and the larger sport of karting.

Dedicate a parade lap to a loved one to help us kick off our heats. Tell us who you are racing for, and their name will be announced as you enter the track. Suggested donation of $5.

Join us on the track at intermission to send up a sky lantern as an expression of love and remembrance. Bring a family member or friend to help you launch the lantern (pit passes are not needed for this portion of the event). Suggested donation of $20.
