With at least a decade of title sponsorship dating back to the turn of the century, a familiar face again returns to the forefront of the WKA National Scene, as the National Road Race Series will be labeled the Dunlop/Xeramic National Road Race Series presented by Russell Karting. While making the headlines as a title sponsor for the series for several years in the past, Jim Russell of Russell Karting Specialities has been in the spotlight the last two WKA National events, taking 5 wins as a competitor at NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky back in October in the WKA/KART sanctioned Fall Brawl.
Now Russell is the headline attraction again for this years latest event of Daytona KartWeek, not only providing the title sponsorship of the Road Race Series, but also participating in the Margay Sprint Championships at the Sprint Track at Daytona for the Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup Series.
The 2 year title sponsorship encompasses 3 company names; Dunlop, a well known tire in the world, as well as Xeramic, one of the most popular spec oils that are being used on the Road Race Program, and of course Russells business, Russell Karting Specialties.
The Dunlop/Xeramic title sponsorship, presented by Russell Karting Specialties, completes the trifecta of title sponsors for Daytona with Bridgestone again sponsoring the Manufacturers Cup Series this season, and Unilli Tires again the title sponsor for the Dirt World Championship.
On behalf of WKA, our sincerest thanks, and welcome back to Jim Russell.
