September 14, 1956… on this day in history, Elvis Presley put out his first hit song; Dwight D. Eisenhower announced he is running for a second term; and of course, it was the first ever public go-kart appearance! We’ve coined it Go-Kart Day. And what better way to commemorate this special time than offering FREE RACES in our all-electric go-karts at ALL SIX RPM Raceway locations (Jersey City, Farmingdale, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Stamford). We’ll be giving out FREE RACES to the first 25 racers who come to each location!

This year Red Hook, Brooklyn will once again be center stage for the grand finale on July 14 & 15. Rounds 11 & 12 feature a back to back race weekend with the only circuit to feature the iconic Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty as the backdrop. For 2018 the Brooklyn Circuit will feature an even longer track than last season, spanning 1.52 miles. 10 teams and 20 drivers will head into the double header weekend finale but only one team and one driver will come out with the championship.
