Sears Point kart track NYE

Anyone else planning on heading there? It's a mixed kart/moto day and I have the day off, so I might head out for the first time in way too long.

I haven't been to the track in months so probably not as much as you're thinking.

I've never been and don't think I'll be able to make this because of work.
I look forward to doing a lot of these next year though!

Sears has a great track. Lots of fun and a bit of a chance to let her rip.

I'm guessing its because they make more money from their kart program so that gets the premium track time.

Here's what a lap of Sonoma looks like on a KLX140

Damn I was planning to go to Stockton today but I was replacing my brake pads because the track just gobbles up pads and it's nearly gone and I found out I bought the wrong brake pads. So looks like I am out.
