Staff Announcements, Tech Reminders, Special Pricing, and New Chassis Award

Staff Announcements

With Daytona being such a rich part of WKA’s history, WKA is making a historical move by bringing back Ronnie Miller as Race Director for the event and Jerry Strickland as Flagman.

“With the input from the great community of karting, combined with the advisement of the WKA Executive Committee, we wanted to ensure we made the right decisions for everyone involved with the event.” Stated WKA President, Kevin Williams, “I’m confident with the strong race direction we are bringing, this year’s Daytona will be one of the best yet, with fair, safe, and unbiased direction.”

Other valued staffers include Randall Lyles and Clifford Stourtz in Tech, Zach Holcombe in Scoring, Linda Lyles on the Grid, and Event Operations guru Albert Vann overseeing the event with the assistance of Michael Tetreault WKA’s Chairman of the Board.

Special Pricing

Another great benefit announcement for the Rookie Red Plate drivers, is the entry fee has been reduced to $25 for the class.  Special thanks to the sponsorship and kind offer to help off-set the entry fee goes out to Matt Bryant and the team at Palmetto Speed Shop.
