Track Location

Houghton Lake Kart Speedway is a 1/8th mile clay oval with banked corners located on Emery Rd. in Houghton Lake, Michigan. The track is owned and maintained by Cheryl & Bruce Sandera, who took ownership 1999, and features kart racing  every Friday night through September 4th. They are proud to promote it as a family oriented race track, For both racers and spectators. This is a place where kids and adults can race and learn how to race in a safe and fun setting.We offer 6 race classes that encourage racers age 5 to 95 to participate. While we have adult racers, over 3/4 of our total kart racers are under the age of 18 with kids starting as young as 5 years of age.


We teach & encourage  good sportsmanship to all involved. Our goal is to provide a venue that allow kids to learn and enjoy racing as a family, with parents, grand parents and friends to be involved! Many of our racers have grown up on this track and as adults still continue to race at higher levels on larger tracks!


You do not have to race to come to the races, we encourage spectators to come out and cheer our racers on! Taking the family on a Friday night to watch the eventful kart races is an affordable & exciting way to spend time together. We have plenty of spectator seating and offer a great concession stand with snacks & drinks to enjoy during the races. Who knows it could end up becoming a family night tradition. We would love for you to stop see us. These racers put on a great show and its all good family fun!


Friday Night everyone is welcome an encourage to come out to the races, view this seasons race schedule here! Racing Starts at 7:30 starting with micro classes through open 4 car dashes.  We will have a small intermission to clean the track and then finish out the night with feature races.
