Revised Kershaw Gold Cup Entry Blank Posted

CONCORD, NC- With the postponement of the GT Machine Grand Nationals recently at Carolina Motorsports Park due to Hurricane Matthew, World Karting Officials have updated and released the newest version of the event entry blank and weekend schedule for the season finale for the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series.

The event has been rescheduled for the weekend of Nov 11-13, with the full intent to run the track in the opposite direction, thus adding a little challenge to those still in contention for a 2016 national title.

Additionally, the deadline for anyone who would like to pre enter has been extended to Friday November 4, giving those who were planning on coming, and missed the deadline, the opportunity to take advantage of the pre entry pricing. This also leaves the door open to any competitors who could not originally make the October 7-9 event, and would now have the opportunity to attend.

Other than the date change and extended pre entry deadline, the program will remain unchanged, with a full day of practice Friday, followed by the Sportsman and Junior Pro Gas Shootout Races, sponsored by Brad’s Heating and Cooling, as well as the Senior LO206 Money Race.

Saturday and Sunday activities will kick off at 8:30am each day with practice, qualifying, 1 heat race, and the final event each day, as competitors will fight for the right to hoist the traditional Grand National Eagle at day’s end.

CONCORD, NC - As announced recently, the finale for the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series October 7-9 at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, South Carolina will have a little bit of a twist thrown in. Competitors in the hunt for their respective national titles will be running the GT Machine Grand Nationals in the opposite direction from what they have been accustomed to.

The path drivers will take for this event is not uncommon, as Carolina Motorsports Park Officials have run many local events with the same configuration, which is a bit quicker running clockwise than the traditional route.

As a result, the grid and tech area will also be shifted to accommodate the change in direction for the event.

Activities for the GT Machine Grand Nationals get underway Friday with a full day of practice at 8:30am. Later in the day, the Sportsman and Junior Pro Gas drivers will compete in their final Shootout races of the season, with $200 up for grabs to the winner, $100 for 2nd, and $50 for third, along with awards for the top 3. The Senior LO206 competitors will also have a Money Race Friday evening, with a 75% payback based on entry count.

A full day of racing gets underway at 8:30am both Saturday and Sunday, with 11 national titles on the line for 2016.
