Due to pending inclement weather, Xtreme Racing Center in Pigeon Forge has decided to postpone their grand opening celebration for a later date. With safety as our utmost priority, we do not want our guests experiencing less than ideal track conditions in our professional grade racing karts. The new dates will be announced as soon as they are finalized. We apologize for any inconveniences this
may have caused. Thank you for your support, and continued interest in Xtreme Racing Center in Pigeon Forge.
The Pigeon Forge Parkway recently got a little more ‘Xtreme’ with the opening of Xtreme Racing Center in Pigeon Forge. The new Pigeon Forge go kart attraction features two exciting courses with carts reaching a top speed of 30-40 miles per hour on average. To help celebrate the grand opening of the new Pigeon Forge go kart track, celebrity NASCAR driver Trevor Bayne will be making a special appearance on Wednesday, September 25 from noon- 2 p.m.
Before making the switch to professional car racing, Knoxville-native Trevor Bayne got his start racing go karts at the age of five. After securing three World Championship titles, Bayne has gone on to become the youngest winner of the Daytona 500 in 2011.
Think you have what it takes to beat Trevor Bayne on the go kart track? Xtreme Racing Center in Pigeon Forge is offering guests the chance to do just that with their Golden Ticket drawing for all guests to RSVP prior to the event’s start date. Three lucky winners will be chosen to race Bayne, as well as other notable Sevier County residents.
Other special incentives for the event include a free autographed picture of Bayne for the first 25 RSVP guests to arrive, a special appearance by former Vol Erik Ainge and Tennessee Sports Radio, as well as free admission to the racetrack during the event. Free food and music entertainment will also be provided.
Xtreme Racing Center in Pigeon Forge is located at 3144 Parkway next to Traffic Light #6. Hours of operation are weekdays 10 a.m.-10 p.m., and 9 a.m.- midnight on weekends. Along with their thrilling go karts, the new Pigeon Forge go kart center offers guests a spacious arcade with popular games like Wheel Deal, Temple Run, Buck Hunter, Skee Ball and more.
