Stansberry Claims Grand National Title

Stansberry Claims Grand National Title

  For the first time in several years, the wife and I made our way to Whynot Motorpsorts Park in Meridian MS this past weekend for the UAS Grand Nationals. The UAS is a grass roots movement of “old school” high horsepower karting that has enjoyed growth and success under the direction of Mark Bergfelt.  To say that many of these guys aren’t “normal” would be an understatement, lol. But, the vast majority are passionate about horsepower, a lil off center, and a helluva lot of fun to hang out…

JRPW Grand Opening / Open House

JRPW Grand Opening / Open House

The date is set! It’s time to officially celebrate the opening of the new Jimmy Rivers Performance Works Race Shop!!!  While details are still being worked out, there’s no doubt, the event will be off the hook!! Nothing Jimmy Rivers does is mediocre, it’s all in or not at all. I mean seriously, let’s face it, the guy bought a bank, tore it down, and built a race shop!!! lolol. Actually the former building was a branch bank that had been closed for quite awhile, and not adaptable to the…

Yarbrough and Joyner Own NKL Liberty Event

Yarbrough and Joyner Own NKL Liberty Event

  For the first time in several years, we packed up the P&R Photos / Chase’n Race’n RV and made the trek to Staley NC’s Liberty Raceway Park. Over the years, we’ve certainly covered our share of great karting events at this facility, beginning with Ronnie Miller’s NCKRA. For you “younger folks”, the NCKRA was the North Carolina Kart Racing Association. That organization eventually became simply, the North Carolina Dirt Series. Four years ago, Tommy Burrow (as he puts it, he and the bank) purchased the facility from businessman Jim…

“R” Word changes Weekend Plans

“R” Word changes Weekend Plans

Well, just as the crew was making final preps to head west for Round 5 of the P&R Photos Ozark Karting Series at Lasoski Speedway, we get the call that the event has been cancelled due to a high likelihood of the wet stuff on race day. Promoter Jimmy Swan mad ethe call this morning to give everyone time to alter their travel plans, if they were indeed coming from any distance. Some may not agree with the decision, but they are the same ones who have nothing at stake….

Thanksgiving Rumor is Actually Fact?????

Thanksgiving Rumor is Actually Fact?????

Well, many in the “inner circle” caught wind of this news earlier as the rumor mill cranked several weeks ago. Without divulging details, (we’ve been sworn to secrecy!! lol) but there will be an option for kart racers in the Bible Belt during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend!!  Many racers over the years have voiced the opinion that their options for that weekend were limited, and many have even opted to stay at home all together. The event being put together will offer several options for those looking for an alternative for…

Doing it up NYDKS Style!!

Doing it up NYDKS Style!!

NYDKS   Well, the Chase’n Race’n / P&R Photos wagon made the trip over the hill last weekend into the empire state. The last couple of seasons, our schedule has forced us to late into the season before making the haul up North to visit with our New York Dirt Karting Series friends and families. Things worked out a lil different this year, and that allowed us to make the mid-summer trip to our favorite NY karting facility. Not taking anything away from anyone, but CCS is just our kind…

Let’s head North!!!

Let’s head North!!!

The Chase’n Race’n /P&R Photos crew will load up this week and head to Caroga Creek Speedway for a date with the racers and families of the New York Dirt Karting Series. CCS is one badass lil bullring, which is why it is perhaps our favorite track in the Empire State. The stop on the schedule was originally slated for Ransomville Speedway, but promoter Shawn Jeffery made the move a few weeks ago to return to CCS, which again, suits us just fine! lol. Our schedule has been limited so…

Despite Rumors, NKL All-American Blow-Out is a go!!!!

Despite Rumors, NKL All-American Blow-Out is a go!!!!

Seriously?! Sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh at the absurdity of some of the BS you see online, particularly Social Media, especially when it comes to the karting world. Well, the latest “gossip” is that NKL promoter Rodney Byers has pulled the plug on this weekend’s bash at Patriot Speedway in Blacksburg SC. As Maury would say, “that is a lie”!!!! Contrary to rumors and the gossip mill, Byers and track promoter Boyd Maloney has reaffirmed that beyond a doubt, this event will happen. It’s pathetic that…

Ozark visits KC Raceway

Ozark visits KC Raceway

  Hello everyone, yeah it’s been awhile since we’ve met here on Chase’n Race’n Online. Fact is, life has changed for us quite dramatically, and we are still sorting things out here in 2016 as we move forward. As it has turned out so far, 2016 is the slowest “coverage” year we’ve had since started photographing kart racing some twenty years ago. Somewhat knowing the direction of our companies was changing back around New Years, while covering an event in Nebraska, we struck up a deal with a friend, Jimmy…
