Seattle, WA -- (November 20, 2006) : The Snap-on Stars of Karting presented by the IRL has released its 2007 calendar, a slate that sees a mix of new and well-visited venues for the series, as well as the introduction of the internationally charged CIK-FIA North American Championships to be hosted by the series in June. "This season we tried to take input from all of our competitors to heart as we mapped out our 2007, bringing back the East-West Divisional model allows us to provide a more logistically feasible series for many of our racers, but the combination East-West events like the Race of the Americas, Series Finals, and the high-profile CIK-FIA North American Championships provide venues for all of our top competitors to come together on a national, and international stage," said Series President Paul Zalud.

As has been the case the past two seasons, the season will begin with the Race of the Americas East-West combo event in Norman, OK April 13-15. From there, the divisional season will kick off at the traditionally popular New Castle Motorsports Park Complex owned by Mark Dismore on the weekend preceding the Indianapolis 500. Two weeks later, many Snap-on Stars of Karting teams, as well as a host of international competitors, will return to the immaculate Indiana complex for the CIK-FIA North American Championships that will play host to the ICC, ICA, and JICA classes. While not a points event the organization of the meeting will be handled by the Stars of Karting and will be the first event of its kind in North America since Charlotte, NC hosted the event in the late 90's. July 6-8 the West Division will go to the new Miller Motorsports Park Complex just outside of Salt Lake City, UT, while in August the series will again be fortunate to receive the tremendous hospitality of the team at USA International Raceway in Shawano, WI August 3-5. The West Division will make its return to Southern California at the resurrected Moran Raceway in Beaumont September 14-16. From there, the contingent will head to the Series Finals at a location to be announced. After already generating tremendous interest before even its first running, the All-Stars Karting Classic Exhibition event is already slated to cap off 2007 on December 6 at the PRI Show in Orlando.
