When is a car show not a car show?
When it's not a car show... it's the White Knuckle Scramble!
Motorized Mayhem!! That's WHAT!
Vintage Go Kart racing
Vintage Minibike racing
Mini vs. Kart drags
The White Knuckle Scramble is one of only 2 events in the USA that allows vintage go karts AND vintage minibikes to race! It is the only event of its kind in the Midwest.
Kart races will be run 6:6:10… in other words, two heats of 6 laps and a final
feature heat of 10 laps.
Minibikes will be run 5:5:7
Drags will be run as eliminations. Line up and
go. Lose and you’re done.

8-10: gates open, registration, tech inspection #1
12-12:30: Tech inspection #2
12:30 Drivers’ meeting, with racing
When the racing is done, we will be able to do more practice runs
with the track officials’ permission. We’ve been assured that you’d have to
screw up royally to not get permission.
All racers must purchase a Hot Grid/track pass ($13). After that, the cost is $30 per vehicle raced. For example, if you're racing one go kart, it will be $43 ($13 + $30) for the whole day. If you want to race 2 karts, or one kart and one minibike, it will be $73 ($13 + $30 + $30). This covers racing and practice laps ALL DAY!
If you just want to watch the races, you will purchase a "premises pass" for $5 which will grant you access to the grounds and race pits (but not the hot grid or track).
Where? Concept Haulers Motor Speedway in Norway, IL (about 15 minutes from Morris, about an hour from Chicago). This is a great track with a nice concession stand!
There are some bleachers for watching the races, but you may want to bring your own chair and a sun umbrella.
Where can I stay? Concept Haulers Motor Speedway allows overnight camping in the pits. If you need electric hook up will be $10, otherwise there is no charge to camp.
If you'd like the comforts of a hotel, there are many options in Morris, IL (about 15 minutes away).
