Banquet Wrap-up

North Texas Karters | Banquet Wrap-up | NTK News | Kart Racing in Texas | Sprint Track

The 2010 Year-End Banquet at Robson Ranch was a wonderful finish to another great racing season at NTK.  The evening was action packed with over 150 attendees and over $15,000.00 worth of amazing racing giveaways, which included an electronic Kart stand won by Jeremy Green and a MyChron 4 won by Ivan Foster.  The chefs at Robson Ranch did not disappoint the club, and presented NTK members with a delicious Tex-Mex dinner, which was accompanied by the entertainment of Mike Furr, MC and DJ for the night’s event.

The club’s board members and officers were all honored by the club with kind words from the club’s president, John Ray.  Other highlights of the evening included the honoring of the club’s fearless leader, John Ray, for another year of selfless commitment, dedication and hard work for the benefit of the club.  The club sent John on his way to rock the night away with Jeff Beck.  It was also exciting to honor NTK 2010 Rookie of the Year driver Riley Cann, and senior Rookie of the Year driver, Chris Williams.  The Most Improved Driver award for junior drivers went to a well-deserved Carl Rupp, and the Club’s 2010 most improved senior driver went to senior stock moto driver Andrew Perkins.  Congratulations to all four drivers for your well-deserved efforts!

Lori Richardson was the recipient of two very special awards from the club this year.  She was honored by the kids of NTK and was awarded the 2010 NTK’s Kids’ Choice Award as the most valuable member of NTK.  In addition to the Kids’ Choice Award, Lori was also honored by the club for her hard work and devotion by the club’s President John Ray and Vice President Bob Schabel and given a well-deserved day at the spa.

The Class Champions were all honored, awarded with some pretty nice hardware and of course a pocket full of cash.  Congrats to 2010 NTK Champions:
