ABOUT OCTANE RACEWAY
Octane Raceway opened in 2003, the first of its kind in Scottsdale AZ, and is privately owned and operated by its founder/President, Scott Sanders and a small local investment group.
Octane has a third mile track which winds inside and outside. It is the only full time indoor/outdoor track in the United States.
We are open for business 364 days a year for public and corporate events. Some of the organizations we have hosted include: GoDaddy, Insight, Southwest Airlines, Honeywell, Intel, Sprint and the Phoenix Suns.
Our European electric race karts go up to 45MPH, and offer a truly exhilarating experience with zero emissions.
