The Northeast’s Leading All-Electric Indoor Karting and Entertainment Destination to Provide One Free Race to Workers with Valid Identification Until Government Reopens


JERSEY CITY, NJ (January 15, 2019) – With paychecks currently on hold for more than 800,000 federal workers, RPM Raceway, America’s ultimate all-electric indoor karting and entertainment destination, today announced a way for furloughed employees to ease frustration and blow off steam: by putting the pedal to the medal in one of its six state-of-the-art facilities nationwide – for FREE! Starting today, federal employees can present their government employee identification at any RPM Raceway location for a free race, available for redemption until the government reopens.*


Each guest will have the opportunity to hit the track and race like a pro for free, and can also spend their time enjoying the rest of the facility’s dining and entertainment options once they’ve completed their laps. Born from racing and innovators of experiential entertainment, RPM Raceway is all about providing a memorable, authentic and exhilarating experience for guests of all ages, making it the perfect distraction for government employees in need of a break from worrying about the current shutdown.


“After seeing on the news that so many federal employees will be working without pay through the duration of the government shutdown, we felt compelled to think of a way to step in and help out,” said Karen Davis-Farage, president and co-owner of RPM Raceway. “For those who do so much for our government nationwide, we are offering this as a gesture of gratitude for their work on a daily basis, and hopefully it will help blow off some steam, relieve even a small amount of the financial burden they currently face and have some fun!”


*Limit one race per employee.

*Guests must present valid government employee identification at time of purchase.

*Cannot be combined with any other offer.

*Offer valid at RPM Raceway’s locations in Jersey City, NJ, Stamford, CT and Farmingdale, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, NY.

*RPM Raceway reserves the right to cancel the promotion at any time.
