July 22, 2014 - It was brought to my attention this evening that CRP no longer sells fuel at their track. During the last drivers meeting at NCMP, I informed everyone that they could purchase spec fuel at CRP, but this will no longer be an option. If you purchased enough fuel for this weekend while at G&J Kartway or NCMP, that will work fine. I will be available at G&J Kartway on Thursday evening from 5:00 to 8:00 to sell spec fuel to anyone who needs it for this weekend. I will also try to bring some fuel in my trailer to the track; however, it will be a limited supply. If you have any questions or problems, please contact me as soon as possible. Thanks, Ted (937) 855-6315
July 15, 2014 - Please see the diagram below for the track configuration that we will be running at New Castle Motorsports Park this weekend. You will have the opportunity to practice this configuration on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The track will be closing for practice at 5:00 p.m. due to a planned event at NCMP. We will follow our standard race day schedule on Sunday. If you have any questions, please contact Ted Cradlebaugh.
July 14, 2014 - The Ohio Valley Karting Association will be represented at the Lebanon Blues Festival again this year; however, the regularly scheduled workers have other commitments that weekend and are not available to work the OVKA booth that day. It is a one day show and we need at least four volunteers, but could use more. The Lebanon Blues Festival is a really good show with a lot of participation and it’s a great opportunity to represent OVKA to the community with a prime booth space on the corner of the Car Show and the Food Corridor. You will earn a participation credit for each four hour shift that you work. OVKA will provide the booth, television, stand, tables, brochures, schedules, etc. If you have questions or are interested in representing OVKA at this show, please contact Ted Cradlebaugh or Lynda Coombs.
Must be completed prior to the opening of the festival. You may begin setting up after 7:00 am when the streets are officially closed. If you are not setup by 10:30 am, you will not be permitted access to your booth space. No refund will be given.
You may begin tearing down your space at 11:00 pm when the festival is over. Vehicles are not permitted in the festival area until the last band has finished their set and the crowd has dispersed. If you want to tear down your space prior to this time, you may do so but you must carry everything to your vehicle outside the festival area for safety reasons.
July 14, 2014 - For those members who wish to run with MSOKC on Saturday, July 26, 2014, their race day information is listed below. OVKA will be racing there on Sunday, July 27, 2014 and we hope their members join us also. If you have any questions, please contact Ted Cradlebaugh.
