[08/24/20]   Not sure if everyone knows but the racing community in Washington State had a scare last week. Governor Inslee made some new Updates to the outdoor recreation guidance clarify restrictions to non-spectator motor-sports in Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Safe Start plan. These changes go into effect on August 24.
When these changes came out, it seemed to read that all Go kart tracks, ORV/Motocross facilities and non spectator motorsports were now not allowed, after 3 months of being allowed. This affected all racing tracks from karts, motorcycles, drag strips, road courses and stock car tracks in the State.
After some discussion today from motorsports groups and the state it was clarified to read, spectators and spectator camping, spectator races and spectator events are not allowed.
So we are still allowed to have non spectator events, but we need to limit the number of people at the races. Each driver is allowed to have two other people in the pit area. We will not be opening the outside pit area for free entry like in the past.
All other kart tracks in the state require masks be worn by everyone, everywhere at the track except in your own pit area and when drivers have their helmets on.
We need to make sure that we follow the rules so we can keep racing.
Each person must bring your own pen to sign the waivers.
Thank you
Sunset Speedway

[08/16/20]   Thank you EVERYONE for coming out for race #6 last night! Another great show in the books...track was smooth and bad fast!congrats Jared Storer and Kily Fleming on your main event wins! See everyone sept 12 for the double points season finale! It’s gonna be a barn burner!
#bepartofsomethingbig

[08/15/20]   As a reminder to everyone, registration is open from 3:30 til 5:30. If for whatever reason you cannot make it by 5:30, and register after the registration closes no pea pick will be allowed. My scorekeeper was a bit frazzled from re-doing the lineups due to late arrivals. We appreciate your understanding in this matter. See everyone at the races!

Workin every day fine tuning track
Prep. There’s a lot of trial and error that goes into this effort. I can not control Mother Nature. Wind, rain, blazing sun, overcast, humidity...these are things I can not control or affect. The only thing I CAN control...is the amount of water I put on. It’s race day folks!

Track is ready for race #6 tomorrow.

Season is winding to a close and the racing is starting to intensify as the battles for all the top spots are heating up.

Tomorrow’s race day! With only 3 races remaining, there are tight battles forming for the top spots in each class! Corona virus put the breaks on our season for a bit over a month but we stuck with it and are

[08/04/20]   A reminder of some items that have come up this season.
-All pit areas must have fire extinguishers.
-NO DRUGS or ALCOHOL allowed.
-garbage (pack it in/pack it out).
-everyone must have pit passes including people in your pit area. All drivers know this but some act like they don't know. The penalty is to dq the driver. -non ethanol fuel to pass fuel tech.
-no restarting engine once on track, even if you don't get out of the kart. The only restarts are on red flag when drivers are told to turn off engines, as long as the kart was running before the red flag

[07/29/20]   Just a reminder to all Sunset Speedway racers of our remaining schedule.
We have two races scheduled for Aug and one in Sept.
Sat. Aug 8th is our 2nd make up race.
Sat. Aug 15th is race #6.
Sat. Sept 12th is race #7, Double Points race.

[07/19/20]   I’m thinking of having a small motor mafia pay race around the end of August or later in September after the UAS Grand National Race. By small motor mafia I mean only air cooled, small displacement (131cc max) 2 stroke kart specific engines. Parilla, Sudam, Yamaha KT, K35, etc. CC/weight rules per UAS air cooled rules. Bore and stroke will be the only tech for the top 5 pay spots. It wasn’t but 6-8 years ago these powerplants were the big dawgs of the UAS. Lotta guys still have these motors and I feel this would be an excellent opportunity to pull’em off the shelf for another run. I’m open to all ideas and suggestions ANYONE may have. Message me on Facebook if you wanna RSVP, have ideas or would like to sponsor this race event. The Fireball 2020 was a great success and we want to build on that. We’re seeing growth around karting in the PNW and want to keep that momentum going forward in this grassroots of motorsports.

The head...Dq’d on a technicality...sometimes you’re the hammer, sometimes you’re the nail. Congratulations Kily Fleming getting the main event win...and a brand new motor!

Blake Hinton rides the front stretch wall off of 4...like the song goes....”I crashed that piece of s#%t and just walked away...Blake walked off under his own power...jokingly says “he’ll prolly feel it in the morning” ....hope you’re doin ok Blake!

Huge shoutout to this kid! What a blessing it was when Edward Reynolds came walkin up Saturday morning ....just lookin to hang out at sunset and catch the Fireball 2020! Edward was a huge help from the minute I saw him. He helped us stage out the prizes for display in the registration booth, ran the grid a little for me...he used his own vehicle to help me get the track wheel packed on Sunday morning, he was the corner flagman for both days also....Edward showcased his racing savvy Saturday night recognizing a potentially serious crash and throwing the yellow flag at the correct time to eliminate possible
Catastrophe late in the UAS main event! Edward has a huge heart and his willingness to help in anyway he can speaks volumes with me! We really hope to
See more of Edward in the coming races! Thanks again so much buddy for the help! You da man #8!

Complete details tomorrow ...I’m whooped! Thank you everyone again! From Sunset Speedway ....3 deep in the pit area! Been a while since we’ve seen that!

[07/09/20]   The Sunset double race weekend is coming this Saturday and Sunday and there are few things to let everyone know about.
The club will be hosting a BBQ and we are asking club members if they could bring some chips or desserts.
All non towing vehicles must be parked outside the pit area.

Each race day is a separate event and so we need to pay each day separately. There will be camping in the pit area with no water or power for $15 per night, per unit.
We need to remind all drivers that Sunset Speedway is Burris only track so anyone racing member or non member must have Burris tires. This rule does not apply to UAS as they are a separate Series.
No one is allowed to go near Jr II or adult drivers until they have scaled after each race, Beginner and Jr I drivers are allowed one adult to help them. The post race tech area is only for one driver or mechanic per kart. No driving in the pit area and please slow down coming off the race track as there are always kids running around.
All spectators must stay behind the fence on both the on ramp and off ramp, no one is allowed past except officials.

All minor drivers (members and non members) need to have a copy of birth certificate on file with Sunset Speedway.
Everyone must remember to follow social distancing or wear
a mask, Sunset has masks and hand sanitizer available.
