Kart races return to the streets of Milford, DE

Milford Delaware's 10th Annual Grand Prix Black Top Kart Race returns to its origins on the streets of the downtown business district, October 19-20, 2002.

"The half-mile course features long straights and street corner turns," said Lance Stubbolo, president of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Milford, which is presenting the event. "We're looking forward to a great turnout of racers and the public for this exciting weekend."

The races include the Rodney J. Harrington Memorial Pro Race, with $500 to the winner and prizes as far back as 10th place, plus 14 feature races which will have trophies awarded to 1st through 5th places.

"Area businesses are making special concessions to allow this race to be the most successful yet," said Stubbolo. "Vendors for food, beverages and race wares will be on hand for a truly complete racing event."

Registration begins on Friday, Oct. 18, 7-9 p.m. On Saturday, registration is 7 a.m.-5 p.m.; practice is 10 a.m.-1 p.m.; and heats are 1-5 p.m. Sunday registration is 7-9 a.m.; feature races begin at 1 p.m., and the pro race follows.

Racers can pre-register to get an assigned trailer spot. For an entry form or information on sponsoring races, call 302-422-3344.
