MINI-ROK CLASS ADDED FOR SHAWANO

posted by Mark Coats on 22 May 2015

We have had a lot of people request that we add the Mini-Rok class for the Shawano Route 66 Sprint Series Event. Since there has been very few events at Shawano in the past 5 years, we will add the class for the Shawano Event only.
We want to thank Allegheny Truck Bodies for sponsoring the class for this event.
The Mini-Rok class will follow the USPKS rules, weights, etc and can be found on the USPKS website.
This will make the days run longer for this event and I want to thank all of the help in advance.
Online Registration for this class is now available.
Thank you,
Mark

Shawano - Trailer Parking

posted by Mark Coats on 10 May 2015

Attention Everyone - For trailer parking, you must fill out the reserved trailer parking form that is available under downloads to the right. This INCLUDES SPONSORS. Please do this ASAP, the last minute rush takes up way to much time. Please get your forms turned in by May 31.
The other change is, you will be charged as you park. This eliminates tracking everyone down once the event starts.
All big rigs must be ready to park Thursday morning. Please understand the pits are very tight and we can't hold front spots if you are not arriving until Friday.
We have had several ask if they can leave there trailers for the USPKS race. We will work with you if you request it early and fill out the forms for both events.
Thank you for your understanding.
Mark

USPKS-ROUTE 66 COMPETITION AGE RULE

posted by Mark Coats on 02 Mar 2015

The Competition Age of a driver is determined by the driver's actual age at the start of the calendar year (Jan 1st). Any driver meeting the minimum age requirement to move up to the next level by the end of the calendar year, is eligible to do so anytime during the year. However, once they compete at the higher level, they may not move back to the lower level. EXAMPLE: If a driver is 15 on Jan 1st but will be 16 in July, he/she may stay in Junior or move up to Senior Pro (USPKS). Falsification of age will lead to disqualification or suspension.
* USPKS has the right to refuse a driver progressing to the next level if they feel it’s for the best interest of the driver.

UNITED STATES PRO KART SERIES AND ROUTE 66 SPRINT SERIES RELEASE 2015 SCHEDULES

posted by Mark Coats on 10 Oct 2014

The last two seasons has seen the United States Pro Kart Series become the top summer series in the eastern half of the country. Welcoming drivers from all over the country, continuing its focus on more track time and more fun, the 2014 season was a huge success for the series. Planning continues for 2015, as the schedule for the third season is confirmed, setting up another four-event championship at some of the top circuits in the country.

“This past season was a big success, with the numbers growing compared to our inaugural season in 2013,” commented USPKS series owner Mark Coats. “We welcomed a number of new racers to the series, and crowned eight class champions for 2014 at the New Castle event. Next year is going to be another big step, as we want to make attending a United States Pro Kart Series an experience that the entire family can enjoy. Helping to make that a success is selecting four outstanding race tracks for 2015.”

The third season will begin as the previous two did, hosting the opening rounds of 2015 at the GoPro Motorplex. The North Carolina facility hosted its first national event in 2013, welcoming the inaugural USPKS event. A duplicate of the Kartdromo Parma in Italy, the 7/10-mile course provides a challenge at every turn. The new circuit to the USPKS program is another demanding course, the US AIR Motorsports Park. Formerly known as the ‘USA International Raceway’, the northern Wisconsin facility opened in 2004 and hosted a number of major karting events over the past decade. The 1.1-mile course is a roller coaster for karts, with multiple elevation changes.

The final two events of the season will keep the series in the state of Indiana. Stop three is a return to the Michiana Raceway Park. Located just outside the South Bend area, it is the second straight year the tough 7/10-mile course is part of the USPKS program. The New Castle Motorsports Park is scheduled to host the series finale for a second straight year. At 1-mile long, the course puts the drivers to the test, and allows the engines to stretch their legs with the two long straights.

June 19-21: US AIR Motorsports Park - Shawano, Wisconsin

The Route 66 Sprint Series, the leading Midwest regional program, is also promoted by Mark Coats and welcomed a historic 2014 season. Record numbers throughout the year was seen in all categories, as the program will host a similar schedule for 2015. A five event, 10-round series is scheduled for the upcoming year, visiting five of the top facilities in the area.
