You wanna be cool, don’t ya?


This serves as your reminder that, if you’re in the Detroit area on Saturday evening, you should come to our annual readers vs. writers kart racing event at Kart 2 Kart in Sterling Heights.

Yes, the weather’s looking typically rough for Michigan in January, but we’re doing this no matter what. And you should come too because it will be a blast!

When: Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018

Where: Kart 2 Kart, 42705 Van Dyke Avenue – Sterling Heights, MI 48314

Check in: 6 p.m.

Exhibition Drift Trike Races: 6:30 p.m.

Race Start Time: 7 p.m.

Podium Photos: To follow the final race

Program Concludes: 11 p.m.-ish

The cost is $55 per person to enter if you pre-register or $60 at the door, but that’s a steal considering you get two qualifying sessions, a shot at the title if you’re fast enough, plus food and drinks on us and Kart 2 Kart.

If you wanna just come and hang out and eat pizza, but not race, it’s only $5 at the door. And we’ll have stickers, t-shirts and trophies for winners!

To register, please call (586) 997-8800, extension 104. There’s no online registration this year but this is more direct anyway.


We have 96 slots total and they’re already filling up fast, so RSVP now if you haven’t.

There will be other fun-tivities as well, including a trivia contest where you can win beautiful and excellent Jalopnik t-shirts, and the chance to decorate our art car:

Look at that! It’s just waiting to be made into a work of art, but it needs your hands and your vision.

We’ll see you on the track!
