Admission is just $5 for adults and kids 12 and under get in free. Tickets will be sold at the gate on Saturday night.
Multiple racing classes will be represented from rookies to professionals with added money to each class. Large checks will be awarded to winners of all classes along with medallions for second and third place finishers.
There will also be lawn mower races during the breaks for entertainment.
“The action packed Starkville Indoor Shootout Kart Race has something for everyone so bring the whole family out for a night of racing fun,” Miller said.
