Sugar River Raceway Presents
Our 6th Annual 'Brodhead Historics'
Vintage Karting Event

Sugar River Raceway (SRR) in Brodhead, WI is proud to host our 6th Annual 'Brodhead Historics' Vintage Kart Event August 19th through August 21st, 2011.

We continue to draw karters from all over the country for our 'Brodhead Historics' event. Our event has become a group effort as Bill McCornack, George and Pat Sellon, and Mike and Joann Morrall have rolled up their sleeves to make sure that our vintage event is fun for all attendees. We will again enhance our event for 2011 by changing our typical schedule up and also adding new activities. August 19th is a Friday not a Thursday as has been our usual start up time. Our Friday will be the same as years past with practice, kart show, wine, beer and cheese tasting in conjunction with our kart show, and our fan favorite 'Steak Cookout' to end the evening. Saturday is a real change up for our event in 2011. We'll start our morning early with a swap meet and a pancake breakfast done by the same very popular caterer that does our cookout. Following our swap meet we'll have an afternoon practice session. The lunch break in the afternoon will have a local brewery tour for those interested. The vintage karts will again take to the track in the early evening for a round of practice and then our first two heat race rounds will take to the track. Our second round of heat races will be under the lights. This should give us relief from the August afternoon sunshine and get us that 'Under the Lights' feel on Saturday night. I'm sure we all have some great Saturday night racing memories; we'll make some more in 2011. We'll get everyone back to the track on Sunday morning for some practice and our final or feature round of heats. We should end our day by 1 PM so that travel home on Sunday can be accomplished. Check this Event Details link for all the times and details of our race day.

Each year in attendance we have those who only plan to show their karts in our Friday night Vintage Kart Show and Judging. This is great fun and the number of karts on site for the judging grows in number each year. We also host drivers each year who don't care to race but want to get some seat time and laps. You can purchase a 'practice only' pass for the 3 days and take part in all of the events except the racing on Saturday and Sunday. And then there are those who have to get in on the wheel to wheel racing action. Check out this link for a look at our 2009 Vintage Kart Race videos. We are expecting great things for our event again in 2011, based on the success of our previous events, the history of our racing facility, the increasing popularity of 'Vintage Karting', and also due to our expansion of eligible years of karts that can compete with the addition of our 1977-1984 era classes.

SRR has been a part of the karting landscape since 1959. Its founder, Don Fairman, also was the designer and builder of 'Blackhawk Karts'. Blackhawk Karts predate the start up of SRR. As these pictures show, many Blackhawk brand karts have been in attendance each year.

The number of Blackhawk Karts in attendance in 2009 was up nicely! The popularity of Don Fairman's brand continues to increase as the 17 Blackhawks in attendance would prove. We expect even more Blackhawks in 2010.

Blackhawk Karts in Attendance 2009 Event

Here is the 2010 collection of Blackhawk Karts in attendance at this year's 'Brodhead Historics'. There are 27 karts in the picture, 1 more that was on site that didn't make the photo, and who's counting the other 5 or 6 1984 to 1994 vintage Blackhawks that we left hanging in the garage! Are you even a slight fan of Blackhawk karts? You owe yourself a trip to the 'Brodhead Historics' this August to take this all in. See you there!
