Canastota Kart Speedway's slick indoor track and nearly quarter-mile outdoor raceway sing with the sounds of rumbling power from the engines of muscular sprint karts, easy-handling NasKarts, and double-seat Sidewinders. While they chew up asphalt on their way to the checkered flag, the aerodynamic karts remain as safe as they are fast thanks to sturdy roll cages and four-point safety harnesses. Batting cages stand ready for muscles looking to work through prerace warm-ups, and electric kiddy karts and a klaxon-filled arcade keep diminutive drivers entertained. The smell of savory fried fare emanates from the track’s in-house grill, setting the table for postrace refueling or attempts to engineer karts that run solely on french fries.
