Author Topic: Little Kalamazoo Speedway - Equipment Needed  (Read 7188 times)

« on: March 08, 2011, 05:28:32 PM »

Hi, my name is Scott Hocevar.  My wife, Amy, and I are building a new quarter midget track in Kalamazoo, MI.  Our quarter midget crew chief is our good friend, Dale Raber, and right hand man for this project.  Little Kalamazoo is USAC sanctioned and will host a Next Generation race in August.

The track is currently excavated and the drainage put in.  We are now working on getting bids for concrete.  We need all the things that go with a track soon.  We are in need of soft walls, transponders and the likes.  If anyone has any suggestions as to where we can buy some of this we would appreciate the help.  We are looking to buy new or would consider nice pre-owned equipment.

Please check out our website:

We look forward to all of you coming to race with us this summer.

Thank you,
Scott Hocevar

Hello Scott,
    Not sure if this will help but, I found this during my many hours of random web surfing.
Looking forward to visiting your track. It looks like it will become the closest track to me. I live in Laporte, IN. You are about the same distance as the club im in now which is Kokomo.

Scott,   Both the Columbus and Toledo clubs went with the "KISS" soft wall system. We had a few issues at first but we worked out a remedy for that and have been very happy with them. We find that they are easier to change out than the other style.

There are some photos we saw on the kissbarriers site that display how they work.
