2014 Maxxis National Championship
Whew! What a weekend in South Carolina!! Thunder Valley Motorplex in Neeses SC was the scene of one of the most anticipated kart events of the calendar year, the Maxxis National Championships. Being a tad over two hours from home base here, it's definitely a welcomed

The Maloneys Take Over Iron City...
Well, it's official now!! Boyd and Charlotte Maloney will be promoting and operating the former Iron City Kartway in Blacksburg SC. For the past several years, the Maloneys have been operating Carolina 120 Speedway in Mooresboro NC. Iron City was last operated by Jason Owens, and has hosted several "marquee" events. Under the guidance of the Maloneys, mass renovations will begin immediately, and a contest is underway to choose a new name for the facility. "We want a completely fresh start, for the facility, and ourselves" stated Charlotte Maloney.

Dates for Tri-State and Mid-Atlantic Series, as well as Rodney Byers' new National Karting League have been secured. The track will also host Mini-Cup and Lawn Mower racing events throughout the year.

The Maloneys have always asserted that "Our race track is YOUR race track!" For this new venture, they are seeking to rename the Blacksburg facility with a "Name Your Race Track" contest. The winning name will garner free season parking for 2015. Name submissions can be made online via the P&R Photos forums, under the Carolina 120 section, and on the Carolina 120 Facebook page. The Maloney's welcome and value your input, and be contacted at 704-739-9600 or via Facebook.
