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.

2016 SCHEDULE FINALIZED

posted by Mark Coats on 25 Oct 2015

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 - Springfield, Illinois
December 3, 2016 - Crowne Plaza "BANQUET" - Springfield, Illinois
Thank you for your understanding & input and please let your fellow racers know.
