Whiteland Raceway Park
Whiteland Raceway Park has acquainted patrons with the thrill of the race for more than half a century via its slate of go-kart rentals and classes. A fleet of Birel N 35-X rental karts with Honda 9HP OHV engines zips around two tracks whose layouts shift weekly to keep young riders on their toes and rental vehicles from getting bored and partying in the motor-oil storage vault. Sponsored by the Tony Stewart Junior Racing League, the park's instructional program gears classes toward students from age 5 to adult. Meanwhile, speedsters at least 16 years of age can captain rental karts for invigorating rides that last 6-7 minutes apiece.
