North Texas Karters Joins Southwest Regional Cup Racing Series
December 3, 2004 AUSTIN Rod Heslor, president of North Texas Karters, Inc. today announced that NTK will participate in the newly created 2005 Southwest Regional Cup superkart racing series. NTK, located in Denton, Texas, joins Iron Rock Raceway (IRR) and Oklahoma Motorsports Complex (OMC) as the third track to take part in the 12-race series, which will begin in March 2005.
The Southwest Regional Cup will include six two-race weekends. Two races will run at the Denton facility, two at IRR of Austin, Texas, and two at the OMC facility in Norman, Oklahoma. Using a format that conforms closely with the World Karting Association (WKA) sanctioning body for this series, all affiliate tracks within the Southwest Regional Cup Series will be eligible to host not only the regional series races but also future national races under the "Stars of Karting" and the "WKA World Cup" banners.
"North Texas Karters looks forward to working with IRR and OMC in the new series," Heslor said. "and we look forward to a bright future for racing in the Texas-Oklahoma area."
"We couldn't be more pleased to have such an outstanding track participating in the series," said Rodney Berryhill of OMC. "Anyone familiar with the Denton track appreciates the professional race environment it offers. With NTK's commitment, we're anxious to get the series underway!"
The 2005 Southwest Regional Cup Series format will include six two-race weekends and a year-end banquet as follows:
