Memorial Go-Kart Inc. 

Memorial Go-Kart Inc. (MGK) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit, charitable organization. It was established in June 2008 after the tragic loss of 13 year old Parker Klumb to provide youth in the Southeastern Wisconsin area with a positive and educational activity through go-kart racing at Slinger Super Speedway. It was initiated by community members who volunteered to assist and support our area youth youth. In addition, MGK offers annual scholarships to youth pursuing a career in a TRADE related industry.

MGK’s Vision is to heal and support youth through racing experiences and positive community building experiences.

MGK’s Mission is to coordinate fun and safe go-kart racing team events designed to bring community members together to mentor and support youth.
