On June 20th, 1999 a new kart racing facility opened its gates for the first time. Hi-Go Raceway is an 1/8th mile clay track located 1/4 mile north of Cecil, Wisconsin on Highway 22. Racing was held every Sunday afternoon along with the first annual "Fall Classic" special race that was held in early September. Track lighting was added the next year and racing began on Friday nights ever since.
After many debates on the naming of the new track, Mike Mitchell, decided on Hi-Go Raceway. The name comes from his two boys (Timmy and Jordan, then 9 and 7 years old) who believed that everything that they did or made up should include the words HI and GO. Currently he can think of the Hi-Go Store, Hi-Go Restaurant, Hi-Go Mall, etc. All of these "businesses" were run out of their bedroom and were successful from what he was told. He is not sure how they came up with the phrase but was not to question the imaginative minds of children. His brother, Mark, was quick to point out that the phrase could also be interpreted as "HIghway 22 GO-karting" but something told him that that is not what those two had in mind.
The track itself is a clay base and is a "true" 1/8th mile in length measured on the inside of the track. It measures 325' x 150'. The straights are 25' wide and the corners are 30+' wide. Electrical hookups and water are available to the karters to use as they please. See the video below for exciting racing action at Hi-Go Raceway.
