While an indoor go-kart track on Watson Road remains under construction, they have a holiday treat for prospective customers: a limited run of gift certificates.
Pole Position Raceway is currently constructing a 56,000-square-foot go-kart facility in the former Value City department store. Their battery-operated go-karts, fit for youth and adult riders, can travel up to 45 miles per hour. The track is expected to open in spring 2013.
Roughly 200 $25 gift certificates are currently available for purchase for the holidays, owner Mike Johnson said in an email. They're being sold for $20 each while supplies last, with a limit of five per customer.
These customers will also have the opportunity to participate in pre-opening activities, he said.
Those interested can stop by the raceway, at 8800 Watson Rd., on the following dates:
- Friday, Dec. 14: 4-7 p.m.
- Saturday, Dec. 15: 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
- Sunday, Dec. 16: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Checks for $20-$100 can be mailed to the store, 8800 Watson Rd. St. Louis MO 63119, with the customer's name, phone number, street address, and email address.
