Formula 1 has Monaco and the Formula 1 World Drivers’ Championship. IndyCar has the Indianapolis 500 and the IndyCar Series. NASCAR has the Daytona 500 and the Chase for the Cup. And of course, Endurance Racing has the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
So, it should come as no surprise that indoor e-karting has the American E-Kart Championship which this year will be held at Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events Chicago in Mokena, Illinois and where the victor will walk away with a $10,000 check.
What makes the AEKC unlike any other racing series, though, is that it’s open to just about anyone, and you don’t have to drive to some far-off track to qualify. Whether it’s in a shopping mall or business park, an indoor e-kart track provides an affordable way to race against the best in your area and, if you get really good, the country. Unlike outdoor racing, weather rarely stands in the way of the exhilarating, high-speed, G-force-producing competition.
Every Autobahn Indoor Speedway & Events location, including Autobahn BWI and White Marsh (Baltimore); Autobahn Dulles and Manassas Mall (DC/Northern Virginia); Autobahn Harrisburg (Pennsylvania); Autobahn Palisades (New York); Autobahn Memphis (Tennessee); Autobahn Jacksonville (Florida); and Autobahn Birmingham (Alabama) offers AEKC Leagues where you can win cash prizes and even qualify for AEKC 2023 at Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events Chicago (Illinois). Furthermore, Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events Chicago and Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events Milwaukee (Wisconsin) have similar leagues.
As a league racer, you also can take advantage of special deals like “3 races for $30” not just for you, but also for your friends and family. That way you can have fun and chase down some more ProSkill points.
Of course, the competition will be pretty fierce. A number of Autobahn league and even casual racers have gone on to race in other series. Cameron Das, who most recently won the 2021 Euroformula Open Championship with Team Motopark and was the first ever champion of the United States Formula 4 Series, got his start at Autobahn BWI in Jessup, Maryland when his friends decided to give karting a try. The first time I saw him race I knew he was special and got him into clinics and leagues and have watched his career literally shift into high gear ever since.
Rajah Caruth, who races for GMC Racing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, also got his start at Autobahn BWI. At just age 23, he’s racing in the third highest series NASCAR offers.
Earon Luke Ramos, the 2018 AEKC Champion, has raced in other series when he hasn’t been too busy as a student, and Ryan Wilson, 2019 AEKC Champion, is a consistent threat to win at late model dirt track races around the country.
This year’s champion, Austin Partelow, at just 13, has the skills to take it even further.
Ellis Spiezia, who represented Autobahn Indoor Speedway & Events Palisades and placed 12th in the 2019 AEKC, has committed his entire career to e-racing and currently participates in multiple series in Europe.
