WKA Offers Boost For Horstman Gold Cup Grand Nationals

08.12.2008 - The test is now for the final race of the season for the Horstman Gold Cup, the GT Machine Grand Nationals. In an effort to boost the competition, WKA is offering it's special incentive to past WKA members who competed in WKA events back to the 2005 racing season. The price for the event membership will be $15.

The Horstman Gold Cup is proposing a challenge to all kart drivers from all divisions to test their skills against the best 4 cycle drivers in North America. Horstman Gold Cup drivers feel they can beat all takers of this challenge. We will have to wait until the weekend of Oct 31- Nov 2, 2008, to see what happens at the Lowe's Motor Speedway at the GT Machine Grand Nationals.

Season Finale For The Manufacturer's Cup Series

08.12.2008 -- How time flies when you are having fun! The George Kugler/Bridgestone Manufacturer's Cup Series driven by Mazda will be running their season finale at New Castle Motorsports Park in New Castle, IN this weekend, August 15 -- 17, 2008.

The Zoom Zoom Nationals will determine the 2008 champions in each class. There are a couple of tight battles set for the finale weekend. The closest battle will be in the Yamaha Jr SuperCan Lite class. Despite having two wins, Zack Busch trails Dakota Pesek by just seven points in that class. Another battle to watch, only 20 points separate Stephen Kalogiannis and Jake Cole in the Cadet Jr Sportsman class. Anything is possible when it comes to this race, and there should be plenty of action this weekend in Indiana.
