Planned road construction changes the Humpy 500

The Humpy 500 go-kart race held the first weekend of October to celebrate the end of the salmon canning season will not take place as it has in past years.

“Due to road construction that will be taking place on PFI Hill at this time, we will not be having the street race this year,” Petersburg Fisheries Plant Manager Patrick Wilson said.

The event will still take place with the costume contest, theme contest and picnic.

“I know this is disappointing to the participants that work so hard all summer long,” Wilson said. “There is still a lot of fun to be had, we will just have to do it on a smaller scale.”

For more information regarding the Humpy 500 contact Patrick Wilson at 772-4294.

“As the details for the event are worked out,” Wilson stated, “I will let the public know.”
