USPKS-ROUTE 66 COMPETITION AGE RULE

posted by Mark Coats on Mar 02, 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.

LODGING ROOM BLOCKS - SHAWANO EVENT

posted by Mark Coats on Jan 13, 2015

I have had several people calling telling me that the room blocks are full in Shawano. I just contacted the 4 hotels listed on the series website and all 4 hotels have rooms available. YOU MUST ASK FOR THE UNITED STATES PRO KART SERIES ROOM BLOCKS (USPKS) or they will tell you that they do not have any rooms. When I made the room blocks, I took every room in Shawano that was available.
I do suggest that you make your reservations early.
You must ask for the UNITED STATES PRO KART SERIES ROOM BLOCKS AT ALL HOTELS FOR EACH EVENT TO GET THE ROOM RATE & TO GET ROOMS.

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

posted by Mark Coats on Oct 10, 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

A five event, 10-round series is scheduled for the upcoming year, visiting five of the top facilities in the area.
