Empire karts was started in 1999. At that time, karting was much different. There weren’t many kart shops with inventory where you could walk in and purchase products. There were a few kart stores that did mail order catalog sales, and internet sales of kart products was just beginning. Empire Karts began as a sales and service operation with 1350 sq.ft. of showroom space and 2400 sq. ft. of shop space for repairs.
Today you can still walk in to Empire Karts and purchase parts, try on safety apparel, and drop off your kart for repairs. You may also order quality kart products from Empire Karts online or by phone or email. While there, say hello to our friendly staff:
