Ignite Battle at the Brickyard

There is perhaps no kart race in the country that garnishes quite the nostalgia that The Battle at the Brickyard does. For good reason too. Who hasn’t dreamed of turning laps at the Brickyard? This is your chance to etch your name amongst racing legends such as Mario Andretti, AJ Foyt and Tony Stewart as a winner at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!
