Georgia Karting KomplexThe twentieth annual Thanksgiving Thunder and Junior Big Dog Championships will be held on November 28 through 30 at the Georgia Karting Komplex in Carnesville, Georgia. To commemorate the twentieth anniversary, the event will feature the largest purse in its history — more than $100,000 in cash and awards!

You can find all of the payout details on the flyer that is accessible at the track’s website at gakartingkomplex.net. The flyer includes all of the information you need regarding go kart classes, racing schedule, entry fees, and of course payouts.

Along with the big racing event, the traditional annual home cooked Thanksgiving dinner will be dished up in the restaurant located on the grounds of the Komplex. Dinner will be served from 12:00 noon until 3:00 pm. You will need to RSVP for the dinner. Last year, over 300 dinners were served.

You can also obtain an entry form, reserved parking form, and sponsor form on the gakartingkomplex.net website. Kart numbers can be set aside at five dollars per class. There are currently over 160 parking spots booked for this event. If you need reserved parking or sponsor parking, I would recommend that you don’t hesitate and submit your form ASAP.

Pre-registration for this event comes to an end on November 21. All entry fees are refundable until that date. Reserved parking is non-refundable. If you enter at the track, the entry fee will be increased by ten dollars. No credit cards will be accepted at the track.

As this event shapes up, it would seem as if it will be the biggest Thanksgiving Thunder in history, so make your plans to attend now!
