2009 National Schedule Coming Together

10.15.2008 - As the final few events for the 2008 racing season approach, plans have been ongoing for the 2009 schedule. While some venues still need to be finalized, the bulk of the 2009 schedule is now available. Headlining the action will be the latest edition of Daytona KartWeek Dec 28-30 at Daytona International Speedway.

The high banks and infield of Daytona will come back to life as the Dunlop Tire Road Race Series driven by Mazda, along with the George Kugler/Bridgestone Manufacturer's Cup Series driven by Mazda, will begin their respective point seasons.

While many of the venues across the board are familiar stops, the most intriguing of all may be the doubleheader weekend at New Castle Motorsports Park in August. Much like Daytona, fans will have their choice of oval or sprint racing to watch, as the Horstman Gold Cup Series and Rage Karts Speedway Pavement Series go head to head in a blockbuster weekend. This will serve as the first ever appearance by both series at Mark Dismore's facility. The very next week, the pits will again come to life at New Castle for stop #4 on the Manufacturer's Cup Series.

A successful late season return for the Pavement Series to BeaveRun Motorsports Complex this year has also netted another back-to-back weekend of action at the Pennsylvania track next year for both the pavement and gold cup series.

The excitement of new venues doesn't stop there. With a few open spots left on the schedule comes even more new venues to the national fold. For a complete listing of the current 2009 schedule, as well as continued updates to the balance of the 09 venues, go to www.WorldKarting.com.
