02.12.2013 - Jacksonville Gold Cup opener primed to be a big show this March 8-10

103rd Street Sports ComplexCONCORD, N.C. – The next national event on the 2013 calendar is now less than one month away – the March 8-10 Coyote Motorsports Nationals at the 103rd Street Sports Complex in Jacksonville, Florida.

Jacksonville will be hosting the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series opener for the third consecutive year. The 103rd Street Sports Complex, owned by the city of Jacksonville and promoted by the North Florida Kart Club, is one of the most popular tracks WKA visits.

The challenging circuit features a 900-plus-feet back straightaway and a left-turn high-banked monza leading onto the back-stretch that normally brings out a handful of oval-track racers who try to get their LTO chassis working on the Jacksonville road course.

Coyote Motorsports Nationals action will kick off Friday with a full day of practice. After practice, a pair of races will run to close out the day. A new Sportsman Pro Gas Shootout event will run a 10-lap feature leading up to the popular Pro Animal Heavy money race. The Sportsman Pro Gas Shootout is only $25 to enter and entry fees go toward trophies and special product certificates that will be awarded to the top-five finishers in this inaugural race.

Friday night’s Pro Animal Heavy money race will include the normal 75 percent payback on entry fees and new contingency just secured, a race-prepared Pro Gas engine will be awarded to any senior racer that can win the Pro money race utilizing Pro Gas engine.

Saturday and Sunday will feature a full slate of methanol Animal, Pro Gas Animal and Clone classes for all age groups. The new Pro Gas classes already have several entries and it appears the divisions are shaping up to be formidable fields in their first appearance at a Gold Cup national.

Jacksonville has been filled with Senior Clone racers over the last several years and the Clone classes are expected to be strong once again at this year’s event.

If you have not already pre-entered for the event, now is the time to do so. Pre-registration is only open for a few more weeks.
