Fastrax Races Its Way Into Poughkeepsie Galleria!

High performance, eco-friendly racing machines, with speeds of up to 50mph



Poughkeepsie, NY- Fastrax Raceway Indoor Karting Center announces its new location at the Poughkeepsie Galleria, preparing the Hudson Valley for some high speed FUN!


Opening in 2014, Fastrax guarantees incredible fun from the first lap to a lifetime!  Now, thanks to the introduction of Fastrax Raceway Indoor Karting Center, that checkered flag experience is available to the thrill-seekers of all ages and skill levels who would love nothing more than the fantasy of defeating the likes of Andretti, Villeneuve, Foyt, Patrick & Earnhardt.


On the ¼ mile indoor course of Fastrax Raceway, everyday people can enjoy the authentic real life thrill of driving high-speed and high performance electric-powered racing karts.  Out-‘n’-out competition with friends, soon to be friends and themselves at the newest and most fun-packed entertainment venue in all of Poughkeepsie, will make for a great time filled with excitement and energy.


Fastrax ultra-high performance, all electric, custom race cars are both designed and built for excitement; speed, precision and memorable fun.  Though all electric, these karts really are fueled by adrenaline.  Just before the starter’s flag drops, specially trained employees strap helmeted racers into their karts by three-point harnesses (just like the real guys).  In no time, racers are “flyin” around at up to 50 mph, a mere 2 inches above the track.   And because the karts are electric powered, the only “emissions” are screams of excitement.


“We are extremely excited to welcome Fastrax Raceway as an entertainment venue opening here at the Poughkeepsie Galleria,” Dan Severance, General Manager for the Poughkeepsie Galleria, stated.  “Offering corporate events and a family-friendly atmosphere, Fastrax is sure to race its way onto people’s to-do list.”


Fastrax Raceway will be located on the lower level near Regal Cinemas.  For more information about this new and exciting tenant, please call the Poughkeepsie Galleria at 845-297-7600.  The Poughkeepsie Galleria shopping hours are Monday thru Saturday from 10am to 9:30pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.  Follow us on our website,, facebook page, and twitter page, for the most up-to-date information.
