The fastest karts in Branson — world-class Sodi high-speed racing karts! Get your race on only at Xtreme Racing Center!

There are three different types of racing carts available at Xtreme Racing Center. It does take some skill to drive these carts on the 3,500-foot winding track. Therefore, you do have to qualify to drive them. The qualification process involves driving the GT5, showing drivability and good lap time. Racing chips in the carts keep track of lap time and are kept on the racer’s driving profile. All drivers must qualify in the GT5 kart before racing the X-Treme Kart.

Adult and Youth racers must be at least 52” tall to race on the adult course. Kid racers must be at least 48” tall to race on the junior course. Safety requirements allow for our Pit Crew members to have sole discretion in determining all racers’ ability to reach the pedals and steering wheel. Closed-toed shoes are highly recommended to race our karts. Balaclava's (head socks) are required to be worn inside our helmets. Helmets are provided. No double carts available.

Was a lot of fun for my boys, lines a little long but that was to be expected. The staff was very helpful and safety minded. They were very patient and kind to even the youngsters like Rogan and Drake. We received a text that they could come back for a reduced ride later that day, thought that was very nice.

"Son's "bucket pick""
August 2018
I found the staff helpful it being our first time there. My kids each had a "bucket list" pick. My son wanted gokarts, my daughter was terrified and she is the older child. My daughter enjoyed it and my son loved it!! I found a lower price online and my father, and my two kids and I went. All of us enjoyed it. Staff explained things, Helmets fit just fine. The wait between the two races was a bit long, but still moved along. I would recommend this place, and would do it again if my kids wanted to do it.

Tip: There are helmet liners BEFORE putting on the helmet.

"Dangerous Practices"
May 2018
We were excited to have some fun this day. We are a family of 4 with two teenagers. Our visit started with a not so nice young lady who was not so helpful inside the building. We continued on, watched a short safety video then proceeded outside for our races. We bought 2 per person. During the first race, their was a couple young men outside (on their cellphones) with no lights or flags to let us know what was going on. I was personally frustrated with just going around in a circle 4 times then the race was over. I declined to take part in the second race I had already paid for. I let the rest of my family race the second time and I sat and watched. This time, there was a larger family and I was glad they had company. It makes it more fun. During the second lap around, my oldest sons go cart was tapped by someone and it caused him to spin around. Everyone proceeded on and my son raised his arms in the air, as instructed in the video. I watch helplessly from behind the fence as my son waited for the employee to come help him. He started to panic as did I. I ran into the office and begged for help before the others made it around again not knowing he was blocking the road. The employee jumped up and got him back on the road. I was very angry at the thought of what could have happened on a day when we were looking forward to having fun on vacation. I asked the not so friendly young lady, Rebeca to talk to her manager. She got him on the phone and he seemed helpful at first. He was asking details of what happened. I requested a refund for our experience and was told repeatedly that the buisness does not give refunds. We ended the phone conversation with Russ telling me that he would review the “video” and get back with me. I left my name, address, and phone number with Rebeca for Russ. Additionally, I had Rebeca contact Russ again as I was leaving, for someone who was racing without the required helmet. Russ stated “oh that’s probably an employee”. I asked him if staff has different rules and standards than vacationers and he replied “no”. I took a picture of the person as well as several others, including staff on their phones not paying attention. I’ve since called several times and left a message for Russ with no response. There is not a way, that I’m aware of, to speak to staff, just a voicemail. I told Riss that day that I will move forward with reviews that tell the truth and warn others of the safety hazards of this place and contacting appropriate state regulators and representatives if I failed to hear back in response. That’s what I’m doing now. Although, this would have been a great place to have fun had these young employees been doing their jobs and had a kind demeanor, the negligence of both staff and the general manager, Russ, make it a dangerous place not worth the risk it the money you’ll spend. Stay clear from Xtreme Racing in Branson, who advertise the fastest go cars, requiring helmets, in Branson.

"Fast and Fun but a little rough."
March 2018
XTreme Racing Center has the best and fastest carts I've ever driven with adjustable pedals and steering columns. The helmets have face shields, comfortable padding, and come in various sizes. The track is pretty rough so make sure your helmet fits snug. The race is surprisingly long and you get to compete in at least two so it's worth the extra money. The staff was attentive and quick to respond when the other drivers got stuck.

Tip: Allow yourself plenty of time for this experience. The race is not judged by who finishes first but by each driver's best lap time.

"No refunds, even if it's their fault."
July 2017
Paid $50 for 5 races - the qualifying race, which was okay, and 4 races in the faster carts. My legs were pushing up against the steering wheel, so I was physically unable to turn. They wouldn't even refund me the ridiculous price.

"Best go cart racing EVER!"
February 2015
We had such a great time at the XTreme Racing Center. The staff were all very helpful and patient with us - even when I spun out and they had to straighten me back out. It was so much fun - I've never ridden go carts that would go so fast (hence the spin-out) and can't wait to go again. I highly recommend going - and don't just buy one race because the price is better when you get a combo PLUS you will definitely want to race again after the first time. Great job XTreme Racing Center Branson - you have fans for life!
