I am pleased to announce that Volusia Karting will be open in 2020 for a points season as well as special events. World Racing Group, the owner of Volusia Speedway Park, announced that James Sawyer will be the General Manager for the Speedway, overseeing both the 1/2 mile stock car track and the 1/5 mile go-kart track.
James raced several years at Volusia’s kart track as a team owner and sponsor after an extensive career as a driver - owner of sprint cars and has spent the last several years traveling with the World of Outlaws working for World Racing Group preparing facilities for their events.
James has a lot of plans and wants to bring weekly karting back to the family event it used to be. He will be announcing his schedule and all information regarding the kart facility within the next few days. I will be working with him closely to ensure the smoothest transition possible as he assumes his new role. Please give James your support and input to keep the kart track open.
I want to thank everyone that has supported Volusia Karting for the last 26 years as well as World Racing Group for their help and support. As I step away I am very confident in James and his vision for what he wants the kart program to be and I fully endorse him. It is going to be an exciting time at Volusia.
