LO 206 Class makes WKA Dirt debut at Daytona
11.24.2009 -- World Karting officials have announced the addition of the Briggs LO 206 Class, adding to an already spectacular Briggs & Stratton Speedway Dirt class lineup for the newest version of Daytona KartWeek, Dec 28-30 at Daytona International Speedway.
The addition of the LO 206 Class on both race days brings the total number of classes to 24 that will be running in the Dirt World Championships. Added as a local-option class, the LO 206 features a PVL ignition with a 6100 rpm rev limiter, an on board rewind starter and fuel pump. One of the benefits of the LO 206 motor is the ability to be built as drivers climb up the racing ladder.
Although the LO 206 class will be run both days as a Local Option class, it will join the balance of classes as part of the $250 to win purse structure. To view the updated Daytona Dirt World Championship entry blank, go to www.worldkarting.com.
