The top kart drivers in the country will be getting down and dirty at the Crossroads Arena.

Chase'n Race'n PRO Kart Tour is coming to the multi-purpose facility for the first time on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1.

The tour's Rebel Shootout will see over 300 racers from 15 different states take part in two days of racing on a dirt track inside the building.

"It's going to be a fun event and we want to get as many people as we can because the tour wants to come back again," said general manager Tammy Genovese during Wednesday's monthly meeting of the arena board.

"This is going to bring in a lot of out of town people," added board chairman Dr. Hardwick Kay.

Genovese informed the seven-person board dirt will be added to the facility on Monday and Tuesday with the track builder coming in on Wednesday.

"It's not a spectator sport, but the push for kids is Disney characters like Lightning McQueen will be here for photos and autographs," said the general manager.

There will be no charge for attendees to take photos of the characters.

"This will be the tour's first indoor event and we want people to come out and have a good time," added Genovese.

Tickets are $10 and $5.

In other board business, the general manager told the board the facility got off to a solid start in 2014 with January being a good month.

"There is going to be a down month here and there, but we are holding our own and aren't digging into our reserves to survive," she said.

"We are staying above water without the city and county operating money … that's a good sign," added board member Penn Majors.

Board member Thom Rogers was absent from the meeting.
