Arrive & Drive Racing

Racing is available on a walk in basis during our opening hours. When you arrive you will first need to register at the kiosk at the front desk. Once you are registered, a front desk associate will assist you with signing your liability waiver, purchasing your races, and then scheduling you and your guests into the first available race. Reservations are recommended on weekends and during peak times as there may be a hour or more wait for a race on busy days.

Racing at Octane Raceway is scored in a Fastest Lap format, where the driver get in the karts in a random order and race for a set number of laps. Adult races are the first to 14 laps and the junior races are the first to 10 laps. The driver with the best lap time wins the race. Junior races are not scheduled after 8pm Sunday-Thursday and 9pm Friday-Saturday. Click here for more on Karts & Tracks.
