Our Fall Racing League registration is now open.  Below are all of the particulars!

Cost: $50 per week
Duration:  7 week league - Tuesday Nights - 6:45pm-9:30pm
Start:  November 7th
Minimum Racers to have league:  16
Max Racers for league: 27

All racers will get 1 warm up race, 2 qualifying races and a Main Event Race.  The qualifying races will seed you into the Main Event.  Main Event will either be our standard race (winner based on fastest lap time), 12 lap grid start, 12 lap rolling grid start (fastest racers seeded first, crossing the finish line determines the winner).

Kart Selection
Kart numbers will be done randomly (pick a number from the hat by each racer).   Order of picking for warm up race will be based on the best time ever completed at Steel City Indoor Karting.  Subsequent rounds will be based on fastest to slowest lap times on previous round that day.

Racer Weight Adjustments
Racers under 180lbs races times will be used as-is.  Racers between 181-230lbs will have their race times adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 1 tenth of a second.  Racers over 230lbs will have their race times adjusted by reducing their fastest lap time by 3 tenth of a second.

Points to be given out based on finish position and number of total racers.  For example, if 27 people race, first place would get 27 points, second would get 26, and so on.  Total points over the seven-week league will determine winner.

All League Racers - 50% discount on Wednesday's Unlimited Racing for the duration of the league.
1st Place: Trophy, 7 Free Races, Free Entry into next League, Cash
2nd Place Trophy, 5 Free Races, 50% off Entry into next League, Cash
3rd Place Trophy, 3 Free Races, 25% off Entry into next League, Cash

Cash awards will be dependent on the number of racers.  (If we get a full field of 27, 1st place will get $250, 2nd place will get $150 and 3rd will get $100)


All Current Race Rules at Steel City Indoor Karting are Active
We will enforce all rules we current have in place including blue-flagging racers that are slower during races where fastest lap time is the determining factor.

Late Arrival to Race Day
If you arrive late and miss your slot for practice, you can still be added into the qualifier races.  If you also miss the qualifier, you'll be added into the last slot of the main event.  Cost is still the same.

Equipment Failure
If a racer has equipment failure during the race, Steel City Indoor Karting will have the final determination on how it's handled.  This may include the racer being able to race a full or partial race, with other or by themselves, to obtain the needed lap time. 

All other issues/challenges that may come up
Steel City Indoor Karting will have the final say in how they are resolved.


Call (412-380-1314) or stop by Steel City Indoor Karting to register for the league.  Registration is $50 to hold your place.  If you race all 7 weeks, your last week's league fee will be covered by your registration fee.

We must get at least 16 racers to start the league and will only let in a total of 27 racers.  If we get more interest, we'll start a waiting list.  If the waiting list gets to 16 racers, we'll have a second league on Monday nights.

Tuesday evening is not ideal, but I'll do it if I have to.

Sunday at 11am would be great.

And a fat guy pax - woo hoo!  Nobody is going to catch Alex, Ted and Dan.  They live there.

I have a conflict on the 19th so I can't win.  Ted needs to gain weight to be competitive.


Was just there last Sunday. They tell me the new hot shot is 11 year old Daniel so I feel at a weight disadvantage.
I am thinking about the League.


Woah, I didn't even see the fat guy PAX. Hmmmm.... :)

Well at least the league is probably past his bed time, haha. 

I was actually there Sunday on my way home from Hershey.  I hadn't been there since February and despite Ted probably having a few(many)pounds on me, in the same kart I was able to run only about .075 or so slower than his time. 

I am sitting right under 180, so i guess if I do this I would need to either to eat on my way there every Tuesday, or lose the 20lbs that I should anyway.   :P 

However I am out for this league, just too much going on this time of year.  If they do a winter/after Christmas one though, I would say I will definitely be in.

I'd be all over this if my money wasn't currently tied up into other things. $350 isn't a bad price, but it's $350 I just can't swing at the moment.
