'Fantastic Four' 2017

Post by REAR » Wed Sep 06, 2017 6:25 pm

The 16th Anniversary of THE BIG ONE just like in all the years past brought us some extremely fine quality karts representing the machines that were run back in the day so once again picking this years winners of a coveted 'Biggie' for the top 4 machines was a extremely difficult task. After all the judges turned in there score cards their choices were unanimous and this years winners are some of the finest examples of America's karting past to ever hit the track.

We would also like to make a 'honorable mention' to John McCorvy a.k.a. The Putt-Nik Dude from Lilburn Georgia who brought along a replica of a homebuilt kart him and his father built back in 1959. Keep tuned in for a feature on this kart in the near future.

We would like to congratulate this years winners for taking all the time and effort to not only track down these early karts but to also help preserve these important pieces of kartings history for generations to come.
