Indoor kart racing is coming to Crossgates Commons this summer.

Fastrax Raceway Indoor Karting Center announced Thursday its newest location will be at the shopping plaza, located just across the street from Crossgates Mall. The new entertainment venue will feature a quarter-mile indoor race course, as well high-speed, high-performance electric-powered racing karts for people to use.

Racers are provided with helmets, safety training and a "Fastfacts" results sheet to see how their statistics match up with other racers.

The venue will open in June, with the company now hiring for part-time positions at the track.
