Extreme Indoor Go Kart – Pole Position Raceway

Pole Position Raceway houses the fastest most exciting go kart Texas has to offer. These high-performance electric karts are capable of reaching speeds up to 45 mph.

The facility located in Frisco, TX is a 55,000 SF indoor facility with a 1/4 mile track kept at a cool 75 F so you can kart whenever your heart desires. The karts at Pole Position Raceway accelerate quicker and handle better than any other indoor kart in the US. This company has invested over $10 million dollars into researching and developing the best electric kart in order to combat environmental problems caused by running gas powered engines indoors.

Pole Position welcomes anyone from experienced racers to children who don’t even have their drivers s license! You must be 48″ tall to get behind the wheel of a kart and remember everything happens indoors so there is no reason to worry about mother nature when planning your trip. Pole Position Raceway is open 7 days a week to cater to your adrenaline needs excluding Christmas and privately booked parties. Speaking of private parties, Pole Position should be your next location for that employee outing you’ve been planning for the past year or the kids birthday party that has to be epic!

Hall Park Introduces Newk’s Eatery – Frisco

162-acres and more than 2.5 million square feet of office space, Hall Park is the primary location for modern business in North Dallas. Due to its distinct reputation, Newk’s is the first restaurant on the property with may more dining options to come. Newk’s Eatery was founded in 2004 by Don Newcomb, Debra Bryson, and Chris Newcomb, the same team that founded McAlister’s. Furthermore, many of the featured items on Newk’s menu are straight out of the Newcomb family cookbook. The menu consists of soups, salads, pizza, sandwiches and much more!

Frisco Newk's Eatery

Newk’s is kicking off operations in a 4’500 SF building placed in Park Plaza! Park Plaza will be the retail portion of Hall Park on track for completion in the spring. You can expect to see a compilation of upscale burger or pizza places and possibly Japanese steakhouse or Asian Fusion. Park Plaza will give business men and women the option to stay on the campus and still have a casual lunch meeting. Kim Butler, the director of leasing for Hall Group is in no hurry to lease the property, but would rather take the time necessary to find the best options for Hall Park’s needs.
