Alpine Shop Sponsors Short Track Series!

We are on the countdown for the series to begin. The heat is on. This is a great way to adjust your core to the Missouri racing. Then toss it in the creek for a cool down while Kaspar cooks a dog, brat or burger. Yes, Steve Kaspar will be hosting the "every Thursday event". Possibly lead out on his vintage Schwinn for a parade lap.

Race Dates: July 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30

Fun, Low Pressure Off-Road Racing Every Thursday Night!


Races will be held every Thursday at Castlewood State Park with the start/finish line being in the field by the horse turnaround. It’s a great way to stay in shape while escaping the torrid heat of a typical summer afternoon.

Races will be geared towards all levels. All racers are encouraged to race in the group they feel most comfortable in. Women are encouraged to participate. This is a great way to gain racing experience.

Registration will open at 5:30 PM for all racers at the start/finish line.

The “B” Race (Cat 2 Racers and Sport wannabes) will be @ 7:00 PM - 25 minutes + 2 laps

The “C” Race (Cat 3 Racers and Juniors) will also be @ 7:30 PM - 15 minutes + 2 laps
