The 2014 SRK points have been posted to the SRK website. These are the final official points for 2014 after undergoing two independent audits. For those who have been patient with us while we audited the entire year we thank you.

What a very competitive year this was. There were some very tight races which was another reason we wanted to audit the entire year. Here are some of the highlights of the tight races:

Only 5 points separated 2nd from 3rd in Jr1.

Only 13 points separated 1st and 2nd in Jr2.

Only 1 point separated 1st from 2nd in Sr. World formula.

Only 10 points separated 2nd from 3rd in Rotax/Tag.

Only 1 point separated 1st from 2nd in Shifter and only 10 points between 3rd and 4th.

Only 11 points seperated 2nd from 3rd in SR4.

 (NOTE: SR4 points updated on 11/7/14 for Excel calculation error)

We will have some news out shortly concerning the awards banquet and general meeting coming up Saturday December 6th.

New Track Records Set at Newly Re-Paved Glen Morgan Raceway


Opening weekend at Glen Morgan Speedway just north of Star, ID is now in the books. The Father’s Day Classic is complete! The new pavement delivered as promised with growing kart classes and long absent drivers came back to the Snake River Karters (SRK) facility! Names like, Tim Ross, Sting Ray Robb and others made their return to the technical sprint track. The inaugural laps were made on Saturday during practice and track officials held the ribbon cutting ceremonies on Sunday morning.


Long standing track records fell to very fast times in most of the classes as the newly laid pavement held the MG tires to the racing surface like never before. Although the configuration is basically the same, the surface is smoother, faster, and delivers a completely different feel with the new updates. Many drivers recognized the changes to the famous “Hair Pin” corner where karts can use the progressive banking to ‘hang it all out’ on the outside of their competition. A silky smooth transition onto the straight from a banked, downhill, left hand, 2.8g lateral corner made for passing, the newly named “Foster” sweeper can be viewed as one of the best racing corners in the North West.


SRK produced growth in each of the kart classes from 2013. Very exciting racing on Sunday began with drivers attempting to master the new entry and exit points during practice. One driver found air underneath each of his four tires as he exited the “S” corners and launched onto the unused center of the back stretch infield. Each class provided the line of spectators on the outer fence and grandstands a different perspective. From the small and affordable Kid Karts to the fast and loud Rotax and 125cc Shifter Karts, fans were treated to fantastic racing action!


Eighteen 125 Shifter karts registered for the event. It is very possible to have twenty or more for the next event in July, which is typically the largest event of the season in the 125 Shifter class. The return of the 1/8 mile oval in the center of the track saw some tight four cycle racing action. The track will continue to be updated with more curbing, paint, and many other exciting improvements! Driver Point Standings will be updated soon.
