As per the USPKS Competition Rules and Regulations, practicing or testing during the week of a USPKS event, by drivers competing in the USPKS event, is prohibited. This rule was waived for the first event due to unforeseen contractual obligations with the facility, and practice was allowed on a modified circuit. This will NOT be the case at the remaining events. Drivers practicing or testing on the Monday – Thursday at the facility of an event will be subject to the penalties outlined in the rule below. This rule also applies to the Route 66 Series.
“302.15 Practice: Drivers will practice with their class. If a driver practices with another class without USPKS approval they will be penalized. Testing Monday thru Thursday the week of the event will not be permitted at the track at which the event will be held. Anyone violating this rule will not be allowed to practice on Friday. Furthermore, they must participate in qualifying on Saturday and Sunday and start at the back of both of the heat races or pre final on both days. Starting position for the finals will be based on the accumulated points they received from the heat races or pre final. Anything outside of a concession rental kart is not allowed.”
