CKRA Animal is a local option at BeaveRun Gold Cup
09.25.2009 -- The GT Machine Grand Nationals -- the fourth and final round of the 2009 Bully Clutches Gold Cup Series -- is slated to go off Oct. 2-4 at BeaveRun Motorsports Complex in Wampum, Pennsylvania. Racers from the Championship Kart Racing Association at Thompson (Ohio) Kart Raceway now will have the chance to compete at a WKA grand national event fairly close to home with the addition of the CKRA Animal class.
The CKRA Animal local-option class will run on Saturday. The class will have the same format as the national divisions, comprising practice, qualifying, a heat and main.
CKRA Animal allows karts fueled by either gas or alcohol. The minimum weight for gas-powered karts is 345 pounds while karts running alcohol must cross the scales at a minimum of 390. CIK or full "Gold Cup-style" bodywork is acceptable and the class is open tire.
The GT Machine Grand Nationals does feature Friday practice. CKRA racers are encouraged to come to BeaveRun Friday to gain some valuable track time before Saturday's racing.

WKA's Pit Board experiencing distributing issues
09.25.2009 -- Lately, WKA's Pit Board has been experiencing e-mail delivery problems. These issues are causing the Pit Boards to be delivered to e-mail addresses much later than the initial distribution. For example, the Pit Boards are generally sent out around 5 p.m. ET and in some cases not delivered until the next morning.
WKA apologizes for any inconvenience and is working toward a solution to these issues.
