Indoor kart racing is becoming one of the fastest-growing forms of
recreation in the United States. That’s what prompted several key
people from the racing industry to create Pole Position Raceway.



Pole Position Raceway in Oklahoma City is located near Interstate 44 at
N.W. 36th and May Ave. inside a 90,000 square-foot state-of-the-art
entertainment facility on 5 acres. The track also includes all sorts of
racing memorabilia, video games, concessions and a V.I.P. room.



“This is the ultimate hands-on racing experience,” said Jason Williams,
CEO of Race P2R, Inc. “I was born and raised here and know that
Oklahomans will love this facility. Aside from those who just show up
and race in our arrive and drive races, we will offer a wide variety of
programs including corporate team building events, birthday parties,
group races and more. This is a track for racers by racers, and anyone
can join in on the action. We have 75 brand new electric karts that
have twice the horsepower of the karts found at most facilities around
the country. At 45mph these are certainly not the karts you remember
driving as a kid. They accelerate harder, are more evenly matched, and
provided the closest racing found anywhere in the state.”



Those involved with Pole Position Raceway also include Seven-time AMA
Supercross Champ Jeremy McGrath, X-Games Gold Medalist Mike Metzger,
Freestyle Legend Kenny Bartram (from Oklahoma), off-road legends Randy
Hawkins, Barry Hawk and Dick Burleson, FIM Motocross World Champs Greg
Albertyn and Grant Langston, and three-time land speed record holder
Ken Faught, among others. For more information be sure to check out
