Transponder Rental

$15 per day.

Mid-State Kart Club uses the MyLaps Scoring Transponder (formerly known as AMB). All race competitors are required to run a transponder and it is their responsibility to make sure it is changed/functioning. If you do not have a transponder of your own, there are transponders available for rental during registration. Please bring your car keys with you in exchange for the transponder rental for the day as this helps us ensure we receive all transponders back at the end of the day.

Open Practice Days

Non-Member: $40

Mid-State is open year round for open practice with the exception of any events on the schedule. Track hours are from 10AM until dark. If you are a non-member and wish to practice at Mid-State, you will have to coordinate with an officer or member for access to the grounds as it is kept locked when there is nobody onsite.
