What You'll Get
Leave your friends in the dust with today's Groupon: $29 gets you three go-kart races at Speedway Raceway. With this deal, you get Speedway's Arrive & Race (three laps of practice and a 13-lap race) package times three. Bring two friends along for a speedway showdown, or keep this deal all to yourself and get loopy doing 40-plus turns around the track. With that much practice, you'll be fit enough to try out for the National Hot Rod Association.
Groupon feels free to say what you're thinking about this deal: ultimate bachelorette party. Speedway's Grand Prix track was modeled after Formula 1 racetracks, so you'll learn to take the curves like a pro, or you'll spin out a bunch of times and still have an awesome time. Speedway has two grades of kart: the 160cc junior kart for kids age eight to 14 and the 270cc full-size model for everyone older.
Note: You must be at least 5'4" to ride the full-size karts; kids must be at least 4'2" to race. Before racing, children age 8 to 11 must complete a training class, which is not included in this deal.
Speedway Raceway won Best Go-Karts in the Phoenix New Times two years in a row:
- There's something about the thrill of zipping around Speedway Raceway's curvy quarter-mile indoor track in a 270cc Honda-powered Indy-style go-kart that morphs us into a hairpin-turn-hugging speed demon doing 1.5 lateral G's on a quarter-mile track. – Phoenix New Times
- Great for a day with the family. Had so much fun racing around the track. – Bekoush., Kudzu
- My first time racing, I was lapped twice in the actual racing itself. The last time I went, I lapped some poor sap twice. It was quite glorious. – Nyomi L., Yelp
- Didn't know places like this existed. I've been missing out all this time! – Mike H., Yelp
