I brought my adult children here and we had a great time racing against each other. You will get placed in random positioning. However, you can request to go first or last. For a special treat, they have ice cream available in their parking lot.

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.

"Fast and Fun but a little rough."
March, 2018 NEW
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!

Teens 12, 14, 16 has a great time racing. They did two races, one test run with slower carts and one with faster carts. They had a blast but it was a bit on the pricey side. Worth it for the smiles!

Good time! We are a group of 7. The boys and dad went on big track and the girls and I did the jr. track. Always pricey but it’s vacation. If you want to go kart this is the spot.

"Best go karts in Branson "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 22, 2018
If you have older kids that can drive the big ones at the track go here and don’t waste your time and money at the track. We go here every time we come to Branson and do at least 3 races each and you are timed each race, teenagers love it and so do I. The more times you race you get a cheaper rate, have to wear a helmet but it makes the racing experience that much better.

Reviewed December 23, 2017
I’ve been to a few racing facilities such as “Pole Position” in OKC and “Xtreme Racing of Tulsa.” I’m a picky person, you must know this. For the tourist I definitely recommend this facility because it doesn’t require much skill to push the pedal to the metal for three laps (6 minutes). Not much skill required. The pricing is reasonable for Branson. There are better deals at other facilities. The race course is outdoors so depending when you choose to go it can be either really hot or cold. The one thing I didn’t appreciate about the facility is that you have to “qualify” in order to race in the cars that go 35 MPH. Also, some of the cars were not well maintained and found myself under steering! Yikes! The staff was super friendly when I went and were very attentive to myself and other guests. Overall good fun and faster than all the other go kart facilities in Branson.
