WKA Mourns Loss Of Jeff Hofmeister

09.30.2008 - The World Karting family was saddened to learn of the passing of Jeff Hofmeister recently. A resident of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, Jeff served as a member of the WKA National tech team on the George Kugler Bridgestone Manufacturer's Cup Series in 2004. He eventually took the position of race director for the Mfg Cup and Horstman Gold Cup Series in 2005.

Jeff led the two series for the next couple years, until his departure in 2007. Another in a long line of quality officials who have come from the Badger Kart Club, Jeff was known for his relentless efforts in providing communication and customer service to the competitors at the track. Jeff Hofmeister will be sorely missed in the racing community.
