The Route 66 Sprint Series Champions Banquet was held at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield, Illinois this past Saturday evening with 265 racers & their families attending. The voice of the Route 66 Sprint Series Mr. Tim Koyen was the Master of Ceremonies.
Awards were handed out in 10 classes & the champions were awarded their Championship Rings to end the evening. The Champions MG Tires jackets will be sent to their homes in the next several weeks.
Keep an eye out for the Route 66 Sprint Series Banquet Event coverage this next week. All of the BIG Prize winners will be listed. Two Merlin & one Praga chassis, 5 engines, 80 sets OF MG Tires, L&T Clutches, IAME rebuild kits, five $100.00 Comet Kart Sales gift certificates, KartLift Kart Winch & many more prizes & awards totaling right at $60,000.00 were given away.
I would like to personally thank my TEAM for getting me such a nice award. As you know I was speechless. Thank you to everyone for the standing "O"! It really meant a lot to me.
This brings a close to the 2015 Route 66 Sprint Series Season.
Good luck to our racers that are headed to Vegas.
Happy Thanksgiving & Merry Christmas to all.

There are a few adjustments to the 2016 Route 66 Sprint Series schedule.
I was attempting to spread our dates out, so its not such a financial burden on our racers and our shops. Scheduling dates on top of each other and around each other are not good for anyone. Everyone looses when series do not cooperate. The tracks, shops, engine builders, racers & yes the series looses.
April 22-24, 2016 - New Castle Motorsports Park - New Castle, Indiana
June 10-12, 2016 - US Air - Shawano, Wisconsin
July 29-31, 2016 - MRP - North Liberty, Indiana
August 12-14, 2016 - Badger Kart Club - Dousman, Wisconsin
October 7-9, 2016 - Mid-State Kart Club
Thank you for your understanding & input and please let your fellow racers know.

2016 & 2017 Class Structure

posted by Mark Coats on 14 Oct 2015

The following will be the 2016 & 2017 Route 66 Sprint Series Class Structure.

2016 Route 66 Sprint Series Class Structure
Kid Kart
Yamaha 100 Rookie
Yamaha 100 Cadet
Yamaha 100 Junior
Yamaha 100 Senior
Micro ROK
Mini ROK
IAME X-30 125 Junior
IAME Leopard 125 Senior

In 2017 the IAME Leopard 125 Senior will be IAME X-30 125 Senior.

As a series, we feel it is important to listen to our customers and to work closely with our shops & sponsors to bring the best package to our racers.
As a cost savings move for our racers, we will have a practice ban the week of all Route 66 Sprint Series Events, just like we have in the USPKS. There will be no practice Monday through Thursday the week of the event. THIS STARTS IN 2016.

We are revising several of the race dates and they should be released later this week. We are trying to keep the racers spread out for our shops & racers.

The 2016 sponsor packages will be available in the next 45 days.
If you would like to get involved with the Route 66 Sprint Series, please get ahold of Mark @ mcoats.uspks@gmail.com.
Naturally our current sponsors have the first priority of renewing their support. We thank all of our sponsoring shops and engine builders for their support. Without you we could not give back to the racers like we do.
