    Start your engines! The go-cart track at Pima County’s Xtreme Fun Spot is open for business.
    Go-cart track
    Xtreme Fun Spot is north of Mike Jacob Sports Park, west of the Interstate 10 frontage road and south of Ina Road.

    Julie and Kirk Vaughn, the operators of Xtreme Fun Spot, have reopened the track that was part of the Fun Spot recreation area before it closed in 1996. A 1,200-foot BMX track opened there earlier this year.

    The Vaughns have four single-seat go-carts for use on the track. Drivers must be at least 10 years old and 54 inches tall.

    They’ll be adding a double-seater to their fleet, which will allow children under 10 to ride along with an older driver.

    The track is open afternoons and evenings. The Vaughns are planning to have a regular schedule but until they determine that, please call Xtreme Fun Spot at 520-631-4256 for hours of go-cart track operation.

    Admission is always free to Xtreme Fun Spot. As a promotion, the Vaughns are charging $5 through Saturday, Oct. 19, for go-cart use. After that, the charge will go up to $7.50.

    But drivers will be able to get a discount if they use Facebook, Twitter or other social media to promote Xtreme Fun Spot when they visit.

    The Vaughns plan to reopen the miniature golf course that was part of Fun Spot by December.

    The County plans to connect Xtreme Fun Spot to The Loop, the system of bike and pedestrian paths being developed around metropolitan Tucson, by early 2014.
