KART 2 KART Celebrates 10 Years of Karting Action

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., Oct. 13, 2010 – This Michigan automotive company is hosting a party filled with friends, fun, food and refreshments. Kart 2 Kart, Michigan’s premier indoor center for thrilling karting action, celebrates its 10th anniversary with a special event for the public Nov. 6.

“10 Years of Karting Fun!” will be held Saturday, Nov. 6 from 5-10 p.m. at Kart 2 Kart, 42705 Van Dyke in Sterling Heights. Cost is $30 per person. For reservations, please phone (586) 997-8800.

The celebration includes an adults-only tasting event featuring beers from Detroit’s finest micro breweries. Guests also will receive a Go Kart Race Pass that can be redeemed through the end of the year, a Kart 2 Kart 10th Anniversary beer glass, and door prizes. In addition, guests will enjoy a food buffet from area caterers and dessert.

“It’s been quite a ride, navigating the twists and turns of the economic raceway for 10 years,” Tony Eckrich, Kart 2 Kart Founding Member, said. “In fact, we’ve pulled ahead and are leaders in entertainment because we give people the chance to enjoy the thrill and camaraderie of karting in a safe environment. Plus, it’s a whole lot of fun.”

Mr. Eckrich opened Kart 2 Kart ten years ago after working in and developing other entertainment facilities. He was drawn to indoor karting as a safe and fun way to experience a little speed and test one’s abilities. He says, “Some patrons come in every so often to blow off some steam and have some laughs and others may “race” a few times a week and are constantly trying to beat their last time.”
