Alan Decker Memorial Money Race – This Sunday!

Last year we lost a dedicated member of our club. For those who did not know Alan Decker, he could be found just about every Sunday at the track. He started racing at the age of 5, and was a member of the Genesee Valley Kart Club for over 30 years. He raced at tracks all over the region, and in more recent years was focused on developing the driving skills of his sons, Leo and Justin.

We will run a combined class of Yamaha Pipe and Senior Yamaha Can, and one class of Tag karts. We will be running in regular club format. Racers will draw for starting position of the first heat, the second heat will be run in inverted race order. First and Second heats will be 10 laps. Points from the first 2 heats will designate starting position for the feature, which will be a 14 lap heat. In the event of a tie in the first two heats, order will be decided by the original draw number. Winner of the feature event wins the race. Entry fee is $50 60% of the pot to be paid out in prize money. WKA manufacturers cup weights/engine specs. WKA tires and club tires allowed – 5″ Dunlop SL4, Bridgestone YLC, Vega...
