Well, it's pretty hard to put a positive spin on this one; it looks like much of the 2020 karting season may be in jeopardy. Regardless of how you feel about the reported threat of the Corona Virus, schools and universities, professional and amateur sports, and all sorts of other organizations are hitting the "pause" button.
At Fox Valley Kart we are particularly disappointed to see the cancellaiton of the 2020 Purdue Grand Prix race. We have made a decades-long commitment to the event and to all the participants. We will continue to support the Grand Prix Foundation and look forward to the running of the event in the spring of 2021.
We remain committed to supporting the Fall Grand Prix Series at Whiteland for Grand Prix teams to sharpen their skills and have some fun with their Grand Prix karts.
As for the rest of the 2020 racing season, we look forward to attending and supporting races, and racers, at Vintage Karting Associaiton events, and at Sprint, Road Racing, and Dirt events throughtout the Midwest. Each of us can look at the "hiatus" in the racing calendar however we choose; we at Fox Valley choose to look at it as an opportunity. More time to get those little projects done on the kart that might have been delayed; time to work on building a larger footprint with customers and potential customers; time to save up a little extra cash to hit more races once this is all over. And, of course, more opportunities to chat on the phone, or on the internet, or in person about karting and karting related topics with customers and friends. Remember, this sport is ultimately about people. When each of us finally sees that final checkered flag coming, it won't be the races we've won that we will rmeember; it will be the people we've met along the way.
Stay well, and keep in touch.
