(Joliet, Ill. - March 22, 2006) KARTPLEX, the most comprehensive and full-service karting facility in the Chicagoland area, is coming to Chicagoland Speedway from April through October in 2006. Fans can get the first look at the new uniquely designed Kart Plex facility - and even take some laps in the Arrive & Drive karts - at its Open House on Saturday, March 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please use the entrance located at Gate 1 off Schweitzer Boulevard.

KARTPLEX provides a challenging 14-turn, 6/10-mile sprint track and a 1/5-mile oval track, which will offer flexibility for Sprint and Oval racing enthusiasts alike. These unique tracks are specifically designed and developed to serve the needs of karters from all levels, and support the growth and popularity of karting in the Midwest.

Co-founders John Dusek, Michael Franck and Steve Henry - who all have professional backgrounds in the field of corporation aviation (private jets and helicopters) - are lifelong motorsports enthusiasts who see karting as a growing sport that appeals to racing fans of all levels.

"Karting is moving past the entry level facilities that are in existence today," said Dusek. "Chicagoland Speedway is the perfect backdrop for the new KARTPLEX facility because it brings an added element of energy and excitement to the KARTPLEX track, which will make it a truly unique racing experience."

KARTPLEX will be running a 12-race Sunday Sprint Series, Round 4 of the Route 66 Series and open practices on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The KARTPLEX Series will also be a TAG USA qualifying series. MG and Sunoco will be the official tire and fuel of the 2006 KARTPLEX Sprint Series.
