Graduation from high school or college is a milestone you should be proud of. You have worked hard for years, and by the end of your scholastic journey, you’re ready to take the world by storm. You possess all the tools you need to be a successful, high-functioning adult: You’re well-versed in the Pythagorean theorem. You can identify the components of the plant cell. You can identify conjunctions and independent clauses – in Italian, nonetheless. The world is a big, complex place and you’re psyched that your years of education have completely prepared you to kill it in the real world. Until you realize they really haven’t.

If you live in or around Houston, Spring Break is the ideal time for a staycation. Think about it, spring is the most pleasant time of the year, weather-wise, in H-town. Why would you make plans to leave town now? Better to stick around and enjoy all this vibrant city has to offer during spring break, and schedule your out-of-town getaways to coincide with the summer heat and humidity! Here are just a sampling of fun local activities in and around Houston to keep you and your crew entertained during spring break.

Whether you’re a NASCAR super fan or you know next to nothing about motorsports, you’ve probably at least heard of Danica Patrick. Now retired, Patrick is worth an estimated $60 million thanks to her success on the race track, most notably a 2008 win that made her the only woman to win an IndyCar Series race. Anyone who assumes that women don’t belong on the racetrack are mistaken!

If you’ve always wanted to be a race car driver (I mean who hasn’t thought about it...) and you’re ready to make a go of it, you may quickly develop a serious case of sticker shock. Race cars are expensive to buy, maintain, store, etc. In fact, race car driving these days is less about raw talent and natural skill than it is about money and slick marketing campaigns. We’re not dissing the sport, we’re just noting that it has veered off-course from its grassroots roots.

If you run or manage a business, your success depends on how effective, committed, and motivated your team is. Taking the time to show your appreciation to your employees by planning fun corporate team building events that get them out of the office (while strengthening that invaluable sense of team camaraderie) will help you achieve a more cohesive, more productive, and more pleasant work environment.

Check out this video published by Adam LZ on his YouTube channel of their day here at Speedsportz. They drifted on the Pro Track then got to race in the rain with the karts. We were happy to host and hope to see them again soon.

As the school year comes to an end, so do most of the school-sponsored extracurricular activities you rely on to keep your kids busy and out of trouble. As summer break approaches, you may be struggling to identify activities that will get your kids outside in the fresh air, will hold their interest, that they’ll enjoy, that they’ll tolerate as the mercury soars, and that they can pursue year-round.
After a while the old standbys (swimming, trampoline parks, waterparks, movies) lose their appeal. There are only so many camps and classes you can sign your kids up for. And, you probably prefer that they do something more productive than watching YouTube and playing video games. Fortunately, if you live in the Houston area, you have access to an outdoor activity that kids love – and that they’ll actually learn from (without realizing they’re learning!) This activity is high-speed karting!

Does your job description include setting up corporate activities that will create a sense of unity and common purpose amongst employees? Are you simply interested in lining up some enjoyable company events to help your employees get to know each other better and “gel” as a team? We’ve got a suggestion for you that checks those boxes, is tons of fun, probably isn’t on your radar, and will probably be a brand-new experience for every member on your team: Team Slalom!

No pain, no gain. Blood, sweat, and tears. Leave it all on the field (or track.) These common sayings are the mantras of many an elite athlete – including competitive kart racers. While karting rarely results in blood or tears – if you follow the rules and safety protocols, it does often result in pain. And in that, the feeling that you’ve left your full ability to move without discomfort on the track. That’s common, and it means you are on the right track; giving it your all. It also means that you’re a work in progress and need to keep working!
