RC & Go-Kart Tracks coming to Dacotah Centennial Park

At its Feb. 13 meeting, the Mandan Park Board approved a request for Dacotah Centennial Park to soon feature a Remote Control (RC) track and a go-kart track. The approval allows Mandan Parks and Recreation to amend its current lease with the Bismarck Mandan Stock Car Association (BMSCA) to add the features without the park district incurring any expense.

BMSCA is responsible for facilitating construction of the two new features at DCP. The RC track will be on Mandan Parks and Recreation property located on the east side of DCP in the former community gardens location. The existing RC track located at Nicholas Park, 1216 14th Street SE, will be converted back to grass. The go-kart track will be located adjacent to the RC track and existing DCP race track. There will not be go-kart rentals onsite. Patrons will need to bring their own go-karts to race.

BMSCA formed two subcommittees, one responsible for the RC track and one for the go-kart track. The committees will oversee fundraising, development of the tracks, leagues, tournaments and events. The project will be done in phases and is anticipated to be completed this summer.

Each subcommittee is in search of track sponsors and donations to build the tracks. For more information on the RC track find the "Bisman RC" page on Facebook or email bismanrc@gmail.com. Donations can be made at mandanparks.com/facilities/dacotah-centennial-park/rc-track/.
