Pole Position Raceway, a chain of indoor motor sports entertainment facilities featuring electric go karts, will open a site at Walden Galleria this fall.

Eyal Farage and his wife Karen Davis-Farage are owners who also operate Pole Position locations in Jersey City, N.J. and Syracuse, N.Y. The new facility at the Cheektowaga shopping center will employ about 35.

Pole Position Raceway will cover 40,000 square feet on the second floor, across from Regal Cinemas. The indoor electric go karts are capable of speeds up to 45 mph, and will race on a quarter-mile track.
