Located at 40 Daniel Street in Farmingdale, Pole Position Raceway’s 120,000 square foot facility boasts two quarter-mile tracks and the latest in high-performance, all-electric, indoor karts capable of speeds up to 45 MPH. Pole Position Raceway features adult karts for racers who are at least 58 inches tall and separate junior karts for kids who are at least 48 inches tall. Best of all, the karts use electric technology, so there are no fumes and they are clean and green.

“We are pleased to announce our fourth Pole Position Raceway location,” said Karen Davis-Farage, president and co-owner of the Pole Position Raceway franchise. “Indoor karting is one of the fastest growing forms of family entertainment in the country. After extensive research, we found an excellent location on Long Island that will allow us to build a state-of-the-art kart racing facility that racers have come to expect from the Pole Position Raceway brand. We are happy to continue our expansion in the New York area and look forward to bringing our authentic and exhilarating racing experience to Farmingdale in the upcoming months of 2014.”

Pole Position Raceway offers a variety of options to suit the needs of all racers – from families, to die hard karting enthusiasts.

In addition to side-by-side race action, Pole Position Raceway also features authentic racing memorabilia, arcade games, concessions and V.I.P spaces for private parties, personal celebrations, corporate events and fundraisers.

"I like to describe it as the ‘new bowling’ for corporate team building and employee and customer appreciation. You can race as a group and improve your time each race, plus it's exciting, memorable and can be competitive too,” added Davis-Farage.

"We are extremely excited to be expanding within the New York City area," said Ken Faught, president and co-founder of P2R Karting, Inc., the franchise company for the Pole Position Raceway chain of indoor kart tracks. "We are going to provide Long Islanders with a unique form of entertainment that continues to rank as one of the top entertainment activities for families. Karen and Eyal Farage are experienced franchisees with a successful track record. I have no doubt that they will build a beautiful state-of-the-art facility that will be among the best in the family friendly sport of indoor karting."
