OUR PRINCIPLES - FROM THE BEGINNING
Karting has been a passion of ours for over 40 years now. We have seen a lot of change over those years, but what has remained constant has been how gokart racing is a family sport that teaches the basics of motorsports at the grassroots level. We pride ourselves on the success of each of our customers no matter whether racing local, regional, or national! At Top Kart USA we consider you family, not just a number, give us the opportunity to show you the difference today.
“Managing for profit is like playing golf with your eye on the scorecard and not on the ball”. At Top Kart USA, karting is our passion first and a business second. Treating you as a part of our family makes us different for all the rest. While all things about racing are expensive we strive to keep the cost down, we have never lost sight of what karting should be about, and we never will.
