About Point Karting

 

The Sport of Karting isn't about a brand.
 
It isn't about a product.
 
It isn't about a team. 

Karting is about you. 

At Point Karting, we live this ethos each and every day we are at the track, in the shop, or interacting with our customers.

Headquartered in Arvada, Colorado, our goal is to be your first choice online for kart racing components, service, and support! 

As you may have discovered, there's a lot of noise out there in the sport. What's missing in this dynamic is the voice of the racer. Products should be improved based on karter feedback, and explained to the customer. You deserve more than a "use this and you will win" explanation. That simply isn't acceptable. 

At Point Karting, we are striving to constantly improve our site to be the number one resource for go kart parts, knowledge, and advocacy for the most important part of the equation...you! 

Don't settle for blindly following a tent team's recommendation. Don't settle for lackluster customer service. Don't settle for a lack of information about the sport you love so dearly. You deserve a better experience. At Point Karting, we are building a new direction. 

Join us on the journey. Together, let's drive this sport forward into a new way of thinking about how the racer's voice matters. From the smallest bolt, to the engine, to the safety gear you choose, the sport of karting grows when racers grow. 

Reach out to us to join the conversation, and let us know about how Point Karting Empowers you to go further on track. 

If you are in the Denver, Colorado region, you can find us at 5435 w.59th Ave, Unit K, Arvada CO, 80003. We are open during normal business hours weekly, and by appointment on weekends. 

Our Team

At the end of the day, people drive any business forward. Point Karting started from a vision and a direction formed by the founder, Eric Gunderson, in January of 2019. Since then, Point Karting has continued to grow and evolve.  We (all of us at PK) continue to learn from our customers, time at the track, and our projects in the shop.  

Check out a little more about the people behind the phones, emails, website, and (for Colorado customers) parts trailer at the track:

Eric Gunderson - Owner
Eric-Gunderson-Point-Karting 

Eric Gunderson is the current owner of Point Karting, and is usually the one you hear on the phone when you call us! Each day, Eric oversees our customer communications, answers phone calls, thinks about technical questions, and guides the direction of our service and trackside support team. 

Eric has extensive experience in karting - first competing at age 11 in karting in the Southern California area. He would go on to garner several club championships, along with an IKF Region 7 championship and Grand National title by age 14. From there, Eric raced Legends Cars, Ford Focus Midgets, Late Models, and did some testing in the ARCA Re/Max series in the years leading up to college, where he graduated from the University of Colorado. 

Along with forming Point Karting, he has worked extensively with a regional kart series, The Colorado Karting Tour, in a variety of officiating and administrative roles for several years. 

Gavin Tarr - Colorado Regional Lead

 

Gavin is our first full-time hire at Point Karting, and we are lucky to have him!

As the Colorado Regional Lead, Gavin is our main service lead in the shop for regional customers, at the track for trackside support, and an ever-increasing number of projects PK is working on! 

Gavin was first exposed to karting through his time working as a mechanic at Podium Karting and Events, gaining experience before joining the trackside support team at Point Karting. 

Prior to his time at Podium and Point Karting, Gavin attended Colorado Technical College of Denver, earning a degree in advanced manufacturing technology, certifying him as a skilled TiG welder. Needless to say, our trackside and in-shop welding projects and repairs have never looked better! 

For our Colorado regional customers, you'll see Gavin in the shop, setting up the trailer, and perhaps giving you a call about your kart or engine if you bring it in for service.
