Trackmagic Reunion Recap – 2019

What can I say, this was a great day for myself personally. Not being a part of the “inside” group of Trackmagic was a fun perspective. Watching teammates of the past bond like they were just at the track together last weekend was a humbling experience.

The shit talking, the jokes, the stopwatches, the food, the smiles……… nothing sums up karting to me any better. I keep finding myself going back to the Trackmagic Owners Group facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/1816255888667285/ just to relive the weekend. It also keeps me away from the outside drama some of the other sects of karting want to keep drudging up.

It is no wonder why tracks and race series have a hard time keeping members around to help out or to continue to promote our sport. Unnecessary drama that is just a huge waste of time.

Know what was missing at the Trackmagic BBQ…………… drama!

The BBQ was full of memories, a new Trackmagic chassis unveiling, a Tornado, and countless smiles and laughs.

Below are a number of interviews I was lucky enough to record from a number of the participants. The stories, memories, and even witnessing the looks on their faces as they retold their version of the Trackmagic history from their perspective.

Jason LaPoint, Kyle Martin, Landon Yee, Oliver Rowen, Gary Carlton, Joe Fong, Greg Yannazzo, Big Rich Bacchi, George Barros, and many others were on hand to celebrate and re-unite with each other. The unveiling of the new Limited Edition FV Trackmagic. Seeing some older karts that I remember tearing up the tracks in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. What a great weekend.

Watching the group grab their stopwatches when Gary Carlton hit the track. Watching the group scurry back to the pits when one of their own came off the track to find more speed. Watching people admire the new Trackmagic FV Chassis. Watching the Factory drivers stumble around as their bodies remind them of the years that have past.

I’m glad I was able to record this event. I’m glad Bob Iriks took the time to assemble a great group of guys. I’m glad each individual participant came out to support the event. I’m glad the air was filled with shifter engine noise all day long. I’m glad I came home with a HUGE smoked brisket.

I’m glad there is still hope for karting if others can manage to do the same thing for their personal group of karters. Someone told me last week, “If we all just got 1 person into the sport, it would double!” Events like this is how we get people into karting.
