April 16, 2013 - The first 2013 points race is now in the books. OVKA welcomed many new members this weekend and we hope their experience was enjoyable. The weather was beautiful and the racing was safe and competitive. G&J Kartway was in good shape from the winter and thanks to all of the members who volunteered at track clean-up day to prepare the facility for racing. I would like to say a special thanks to all of the track workers, tech officials, staff and anyone else who assisted in making the race day run smooth.

March 14, 2013 - OVKA is proud to announce that Racing4Vets will be joining OVKA this season with their Kart Racing Program. They are a motorsports organization designed exclusively for injured U.S. military veterans. This season, they will be entering two karts in each OVKA race in the Clone 420 Lite class. The event entry fees and pit passes for these karts are sponsored by Keith Freber with Margay Racing/Grand Products and the OVKA 50/50 Raffle for the 2013 season. Rick Coombs has graciously donated their race fuel for the 2013 season. For more information on Racing4Vets, take a look at their website at www.Racing4Vets.org. Please join me in welcoming these folks to OVKA and offer any assistance you can to make their racing experience with us enjoyable.
