Default Indoor karting race before USGP in Indy, June 19th. Deadline soon!

  • We need eight, four man (or women) teams.


For more info, www.fastimesindoorkaring.com or check my site for Subaru specific info: http://home.indy.rr.com/thestreetman/karting.htm

I'm looking for 8 teams of four people each from each city/region. If you don't have 4, or have more than 4 that's fine, I'm sure we'll have half the field on mix matched teams. However, St Louis said they could kick Chicago's ass. When asked about Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Texas? They just laughed and said, "They don't even justify a comment from us."

Jeez...you guys gunna take that? From the "show me state"?

What's all the excitement of a unique racing experience cost? Total cost, everything included, $92.92. The $2.92 is the paypal fee. The $90 will cover EVERYTHING else, including catering (you'll be hungry after a day at the track), and any extras we decide on later (prizes, trophy's, hmmm...prize money?)

DEADLINE TO PAY IS NEXT FRIDAY, MAY 21ST!
We have a very limited opportunity here. That weekend, as you can imagine, is VERY popular. I've worked out an arrangement with Fastimes, provided we pay that day or sooner. Please, don't make me sweat until the last minute, I'll do enough of that in the kart. If you can pay, pay now. If your friends can't, can you sponsor them for now? C'mon, help some bruthas out. This is in your hands now, I've done all I can.

Payment by paypal is preferred. I will wait for everyone to pay, before accepting anyone's payments. If we don't get the full 32 people paid, I will offer a FULL refund, minus the paypal fee. Again, I just can't cover $2.92 for everyone if this doesn't fly. You can use secure pay by clicking the buy now button at this link:*PAY HERE*

C'mon, do it already. All the cool kids are. Itíll make you feel good.

Multiple other Subaru events that weekend can be found HERE

OUTSTANDING, SOLDIER! That's the way it's done. Now, can you find 31 more people with the same commitment?

4mla1fn is my new favorite person.

Hey, is there a place to put your screen name in when you go through my paypal link? I can't test my own link.

If there is, can everyone PLEASE put your screen name in there somewhere?

I'm sure we can find some others. Like I said, I figure half the field will be randoms. Thanks, both of you for the quick response. Makes me hopeful this is going to fly.

Everyone else, get on board. You might not have a spot if this keeps up.

Hey, fellas. Just thought of something. If this doesn't fly, I'm out almost $2.91 for each person paid. Could you guys include that in the payment?

For you first three, don't worry about it. An you know what? I don't have time to change my link right now. From now until I change it, you save a whole $3. Get to signing up already now.

If you're just thinking about it, let me know here, so I know I've got some interest.

I've been telling everyone that is going to Indy about it.

i'll be bummed if this doesn't come together. $90 for 2hrs is steal.

hey streetman, here's a looney idea. do you think the track could facilitate connecting us with another group who may also be struggling to get their minimum?? i don't know if they'd do something like that though it would be in their interest to have the place sold out. just an idea. (32more days before i make my pilgrimage to indy.)

Yeah, it's an idea. I've contacted the guys at the local Audi Club, and some of them might get in. I don't want to go too crazy with opening it up to whoever, as that can sometimes lead to trouble.

For all the people who asked me about it, there's not a whole lot signed up. Perhaps I should have posted this in General?

Do you guys have any other local clubs that would be interested? Looks like we need people, no matter what club.

Anyone that is interested and going to be in indy, I really don't see a down-side. It will totally be worth the money.

Do we know what group we were in conflict with for that night? Maybe some of them?

Well, once again this is going to be like last year. Everyone asks about it, until it's time to pay, and now everyone is going to show up, and ask if we're going to do it. It's now or never, and looks like never.

However, I'll make one last attempt at reaching out to other groups, for the sake of the people who got on board. If I do somehow pull this off, we all have to agree to be good little boys while racing. Yes, rubbing is racing, but at 40 MPH, stuffing someone into a wall hurts.

You all cool with that?

Yeah man. It's just recreation. I'd keep it civil no matter who we were going wheel-to-wheel with.

I'll call a few more people.

Cool, thanks for the help. I changed the price on the Pay Now button to $92.92. Sorry, had to do it. $2.92 is now non-refundable. I just couldn't cover it for more than a couple people. If anyone knows of a better way, let me know.

I was waiting for a call from fastimes today, telling me if we can extend it out any. Should we? This hasn't gone off as planned. I don't get it, but that's the way it is. I know everyone who shows up will want to go karting, but by that time it'll be too late.

I'm all ears on what to do. I'll call fastimes again tomorrow, to see if we even need to debate it.

Called again, no return call. Their sales staff is outsourced, so don't let the lack of follow up reflect on the track. Also, I haven't run off with your money. Rest assured too many people know me. Oh yeah, I also have directions to my house on my site, and value my life.

Any feedback on how long we should attempt this, if we still can? I'll give it the ole college try, if I get the OK from fastimes.

You must be psychic. I just got off the phone with them,a nd they said they've got someone else who might take it, and they have until the 3rd. If we get our --it in order by then, we may be able to still do it. I'm up for a big push, if you all are cool to wait that long, and also give me a hand. I need to hit some of the smaller sites, postwhore the event around other forums here, and hit some more local car clubs. Maybe it'll turn into Subaru vs Honduh vs Toyota vs Audi, etc. Right now, I'm not sure how many, guessing around only a quarter full. Lame, but with a serious effort, we may pull it off. Throw enough --it at a wall...

Whatdaya think?

got a message from them this morning, finally. In the end, the other group got the spot, it wouldn't have mattered how many signed up. They got the royal treatment because they got bumped from a different spot. Oh well, win some lose some.

I will be refunding everyone's $$ via paypal tonight. Working right now, and it's going to take some time to sort through who paid, who paid for 2, and who paid $90 and who paid $92.92. As I said though, I WILL get your $$ to you.

Now, what to do that Saturday, if you're not karting. All sorts of things on my website, if you haven't checked there.
