Susie Wheldon discusses with Andi and Annessa the details of the The Dan Wheldon Memorial Pro-Am Karting Challenge at Mark Dismore, Jr. with Castle Motorsports Park details the 10th Annual 2013 RoboPong.

Drivers from various racing backgrounds will come together on Oct. 26 to compete in The Dan Wheldon Memorial Pro-Am Karting Challenge at New Castle Motorsports Park. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, a cause Wheldon fought to raise awareness for after his mother was diagnosed with the illness in 2008.

The challenge will consist of 12 corporate sponsored teams in a timed 2-hour race beginning at 12:30 p.m. Each team will have one pro driver paired with three amateurs. Gates open at 7 a.m. and admission is free. The pro drivers will also take part in an autograph session before the start of the race.

The 10th Annual 2013 RoboPong 200 TaG Endurance race will take place on Sunday, October 27th at New Castle Motorsports Park, just 30 minutes east of Indianapolis.

With over 60 karting drivers entered, this promises to be one of the best races ever. They will join drivers from IndyCar including Will Power, Simona DeSilvestro, Stefan Wilson, Josef Newgarden, Conor Daly, Jay Howard, Ed Carpenter and James Davidson.

From Sportscars, Anders Krohnand and from IndyLights, Sage Karam and Gaby Chaves.

The winning team will take home the Dan Wheldon Cup. Dan raced in the majority of races prior to his untimely death in October of 2011.

The RoboPong 200 is a must-attend event for many in Karting. This year’s event features a family atmosphere with plenty to do other than watch the racing. NCMP has plenty of free spectator viewing areas, AND FREE admission.

For those who haven't been, the Robopong race can produce some real drama. Last years winner, Beasley and Donald, I think, stayed on dry tires when it was raining for about 5 laps. At the beginning of the stint, they were way ahead. They were passed and fell about two laps behind- until the rain stopped. Great race.

Also, there are Yamaha Sportsman, Yamaha Jr and Yamaha Sr races that are 30 laps in length that pay good money back to 10th.
