Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events Raises Over $13,000 for Pediatric Brain Cancer Research.

Max Pound was a talented and generous young racer who caught the attention of David Larson, managing partner of Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events, with his impressive speeds at Autobahn Dulles. Sadly, Max’s racing career was cut short at the age of 12 when he passed away after battling Glioblastoma Multiforme, a deadly form of brain cancer. To honor Max and raise awareness and funds for pediatric brain cancer research, all nine Autobahn Indoor Speedway and both Accelerate Indoor Speedway locations donated 25% of their sales on April 14, 2023, to The Lilabean Foundation for Pediatric Brain Cancer Research.

AEKC League Racing

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.

Chase The Bunny

You’ve probably heard of my brother. He’s the Easter Bunny. He’s thoughtful, rarely talks, and like the treats he leaves behind, is really sweet. Yes, and I don’t think you would chalk the entire comment up to sibling rivalry if I were to say he’s a bit boring. Chances are, though, you’ve never ever heard of me. My name is, “Finn” aka “The Funny Bunny.” I’m nothing like my brother. I’m mischievous, and some people say I’m a bad bunny. No doubt, I’m a stinker as every spring, I dig up people’s daffodils, and hand out caramel covered onions. I...

How Safe Are Our Go Karts?

“How safe is it?” That’s a fair question to ask before you put yourself behind the wheel of an Italian-made, Formula 1-inspired pro kart/go kart capable of speeds up to 50 miles per hour. And while simply living brings its share of risk, you can rest assured that a lot of thought, care, and engineering went into making this activity as fast, fun, and safe as it can be. At Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events, our number one Core Value is to “Champion Safety.” Yes, we like to “Think young, have fun,” but that’s only possible in an environment that’s...
