Go-Kart Racing Information

SBR is a unique go-karting experience. We take special care to ensure our customers know how important they are. We work hard to provide an outstanding race experience that will keep our customers coming back. Our gas powered sodi karts ensure a more authentic race experience than our competitors' electric karts because you can better control your speed without constant braking and finesse the corners better. Come check out our recent remodel and enjoy an air conditioned, newly carpeted lobby with plush lounge chairs. We also have 8 monitors and 3 leader boards, so you are always on top of each racer's position.

You can watch the race from our lobby observation windows or sit at the track-side tables. At SBR, we are very safety conscious. We devote extra time with Jr. racers to ensure they understand how to operate the go-karts and feel safe to make the most of their race time. We take time to explain braking and lifting techniques that they understand how to drive safely!! For added precaution, we can remotely control the speed of each kart to ensure the safety of all racers on the track. Inside our lobby, we have snack and drink refreshments for your convenience. We also have air hockey and pool tables, arcade games and even fun stuff for kids under 8 years of age.

If you are wondering about the latest Football or NASCAR standings, then check out one of our 8 monitors and you will find a race or multiple sporting game playing live!!

Tips and Tricks - Making the Go-kart Go!

Some Good Info to Keep in Mind While Racing at SB Raceway
Driving our karts can be fun and exhilarating, as well as it can be tough and frustrating. Often times, people will get red flagged and “talked” to about how they are driving. So here are some tips and tricks to not only be safer, but also become a better and faster racer.



If you do ever get “talked” to about how you are driving, it is because we see cause for concern. We don’t want you to crash and get hurt, just as much as we don’t want you to get caught up in someone else's mistakes, so make sure you always leave others room. If someone is definitely faster than you, our best advice is let them pass you and try to learn as much of their line as possible. If someone is about as fast as you, be sure you don't do anything that will cause them to crash into a wall or even worse, into you, and always leave them room. Never cut someone off, it's just bad driving.


When you first start out make sure to start slowly and get used to the track, the kart and how the kart handles on the track. You should do this every time you race, at least the first lap.


After you get used to the track and kart, make sure you maintain a smooth racing line. Think, “Where am I going to next? Do I need to slow down, or can I take that turn at my current speed?” If you ever slide in a turn, always go slower the next time. You probably can eventually go through the turn faster than you are now, but you may not be a smooth enough driver to execute the turn yet.


SPEED IS YOUR ENEMY. Speed happens naturally as you become a smoother driver, most the time with bad effects. As you increase your smoothness you will increase your exit speed from a turn, thus making it so you go into the next turn with more speed than ever before. Which means you need to rethink when to slow down for the next turn and how much.


Often times, you will be have a particular problem with a certain turn. Our advice is to investigate the turn before the one that is giving you problems. Make sure that you are doing that turn correctly. More than likely, you are taking the turn before too fast and thus cannot get in the correct position for the turn that is giving the most noticeable trouble.


And of course you can always ask our staff and other racers you see racing well for some more tips and advice.

In the pit area the maximum speed allowed is walking speed.
Never get out of the go-kart while on the track. If you need assistance, pull to the side of the track, raise your hand and wait for the track personnel to help you. If you start to feel sick, pull into the pit and take a break.
Walking onto any portion of the track or beyond any divided partitions is prohibited.
Steering should be done with both hands on the steering wheel in the “10 and 2 o'clock” positions.
