ARGYLE - The Capital Region is now in Phase 4 of re-opening.


Despite many businesses bouncing back, several of them are having to change the way things are done.

That includes Turkey Trot Raceway in Argyle.

The go-kart track just opened up but, with no karts. That's because drivers bring their own.

Owners Joe and Kate Maille say there's been weeks of confusion as to whether or not they even could re-open.

They say the state was sending them mixed messages as to whether they're a race track or an entertainment venue.

The plan now is to open this weekend as a racetrack, but the owners say they would like someone to tell them how many people are allowed to be there.

Races normally start at Turkey Trot the first weekend in April and end in October with 40 to 60 karts.

The Maille's say this year they are limiting pit crews to three people and spectators are not allowed.

Learn more about some of the mixed messages the owners say they're getting by watching the video of Jacquie Slater's story.
