There are several kart tracks in central Arkansas that I know of. I am the flagman at Optimist Raceway Park in Little Rock.
1/5th mile clay oval WKA / IKF rules
We race every other Saturday night, which our next race will be July 28th. Located 3/4 mile north of I-30 Speedway on the same access road.

The Big Giant Kartway in Batesville. They race every Saturday night, 1/5 mile dirt oval, WKA / IKF rules

There are other tracks in Arkansas, but I don't have much info on them:
Paved....Warren,AR Oval Briggs and Roadcourse Shifters
Dirt.....Texarkana Tx or AR..?
Dirt.....Searcy, AR WKA / IKF
