SpeedVegas and Northern California Karters announce the first ever sanctioned event at SpeedVegas in Las Vegas, NV, Sunday, April 19th, 2020. The super smooth 1.5 mile sportscar road course will be used in the counter clockwise direction for this groundbreaking kart racing event. SpeedVegas COO Greg Schroeder: "We are very excited to have NCK and its participants at our facility to celebrate our first event. This sanctioning body has great people involved in it and the history and experience of this club will provide some exciting racing action on our very smooth track. The staff here at SpeedVegas has already been preparing the property for this groundbreaking race. Word of mouth around our city has already produced a buzz about the race, bringing in curious former local club racers to see our $30 mil complex."
NCK's Mark Morrison: "we are excited to have this event at SpeedVegas. Although a bit farther from our home base, we are confident that the impressive facility and the draw of the city itself will make for a amazing and successful inaugural event." This will be the first "club" kart race in many years in Las Vegas. The kart track across town has been closed for a few years and local racers are eager to return to the pavement. NCK is bringing world class participants from northern California. Although not the first event outside the state for the organization, it is quickly becoming one of the most talked about, with hotels to fit all budgets nearby and recreation for the whole family. Las Vegas itself has become a destination in the world for tourism and a world-class destination for various sporting events as well.
The SpeedVegas GP is being run by NCK using the IKF Road Race rule book. It has also added the new 175cc shifter class for this event and has a "run what you brung" class just in case a kart doesn't for into the IKF/SKUSA classes that already exist.
9 races are scheduled for the day, separated out into 3 different groups. Please refer to this website for details as they develop. Online entry begins March 1st.
