Facility NewsThe only permanent indoor and outdoor kart racing venue in the United States has just expanded their facility to include a semi-private outdoor patio aptly dubbed ‘The Brickyard’. Octane Raceway extends the spring training experience for fans with their new 5,000 square foot outdoor patio. To celebrate the new space, Octane is hosting a Spring Training Kick-Off Party in ‘The
Brickyard’ Friday, February 28 directly following the afternoon Rockies vs. Diamondbacks game.

Baseball fans can enjoy free kart racing, drink specials and take part in a Cornhole tournament with the champion winning free kart racing for one year.

“Although we’ve been in the Valley for ten years, we opened Octane Raceway in the Pavilions last July. Since this is our first spring training season at our new location, we want to make it memorable,” says Scott Sanders, president of Octane Raceway. “With 15 teams now playing in the Cactus League, there is so much energy and anticipation in the Valley each spring. We are tapping into that excitement with our Spring Training Kick-Off Party. We have many post-game activities planned – both on the racetrack and on the patio, that will top off a great afternoon at the ballpark.”

The Brickyard at Octane Raceway gives Arizona sports enthusiasts another way to enjoy the
entertainment venue. Approximately half of the extended patio is covered in pavers, allowing for casual seating that can easily be converted for an outdoor dinner party or event space for up to 50 guests. The other half of the patio is grass with redwood picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, lounge furniture and three Cornhole sets ready for action. The grass area accommodates up to 50 people and can easily be combined with the paved section of the patio for larger parties.

The patio is open to the public but can also be exclusively reserved for social or corporate events.
The patio moniker, The Brickyard, pays homage to the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Originally created in 1909 using a mixture of tar and crushed stone, the IMS racetrack surface was quickly improved using more than 3.2 million bricks throughout the two and a half mile course. As new materials became available, the track was eventually covered with asphalt although a one-yard section of brick remains at the Start/Finish line commemorating the time-tested surface.

The Brickyard Spring Training Kick-Off Party festivities take place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday,
February 28. For baseball fans with ticket stubs from that day’s Rockies vs. Diamondbacks game, Octane is offering free racing from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Guests can also compete in a Cornhole tournament with the champion receiving one year of free kart racing. The tournament will begin at 4:30 p.m. with brackets assigned at that time. Drink specials will run throughout the party featuring two dollar domestic and import draughts. The Spring Training Kick-Off Party is open to the public.
