Many of you have begged for a chance to destroy your favorite Jalopnik contributor in a head-to-head race but have been unwilling, for some reason, to travel to Detroit in January. Great news! We’re having a kart race October 23rd at Autobahn Indoor Speedway (AIS) at the Palisades Mall outside of NYC. RSVP here, race us, support a good cause. Details below.


Jalopnik and AIS are pleased to invite you to another installment of Are You Faster Than A Jalopnik Writer, this time at the AIS track in West Nyack, New York just outside of the city. The event will be on October 23rd and if you buy a ticket you’ll get a guaranteed practice session, qualifying event, and if you’re fast enough a race against the best readers/writers we’ve got.

There will also be food and drink and hanging out all for $55.


But that’s not all! AIS will also be donating 50% of your ticket price to the RPM Foundation, which is a services-providing, resource-sharing, grant-giving organization that accelerates the growth of the next generation of automotive restoration and preservation craftsmen through formal training and mentorship.

More on that in an upcoming post!
