Summit Racing Equipment becomes WKA’s Presenting Sponsor

Popular Performance Parts Source Brings New Opportunities to the WKA Family

Substantially increasing its participation with the World Karting Association for the benefit of the racers, Summit Racing Equipment and WKA solidified a multi-year agreement, naming Summit Racing Equipment as the Presenting Sponsor for all WKA’s National Programs.

“After a great first year of building our relationship with Summit Racing Equipment, we couldn’t be more pleased that they have increased their support to the WKA Karting Family.” Stated WKA President Kevin Williams “With such a recognized brand, and the home for performance products, it was a natural for WKA to bring this great relationship back to the WKA racers.”

Famous for being the World’s Speed Shop for performance and stock replacement car and truck parts and accessories, tools, and more, Summit Racing Equipment offers a wide range of products for Kart Racers for use both at the track and in their personal lives.  Over a million parts in stock, and fast, free shipping for orders over $99, is sure to have the parts and accessories all Karters need. 

“We’re looking forward to supporting the WKA racing community with this partnership,” said Al Noe, Summit Racing Equipment’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Karting is an exciting sport and a great way for young people to learn how much fun—and how challenging—racing can be. From hot laps at the local track to all-out local and national competition, WKA has a place for everyone who wants to go Karting.”

In the new-for-2020 program, Summit will bring its popular Gift Cards back, which go right in the hands of the WKA Racers, helping them stretch their racing budgets throughout the racing season, among many other benefits to be announced throughout the year.

About Summit Racing Equipment- The World's Speed Shop®  It was 1968, and a young engineer owned a big block-powered 1967 Corvette roadster with a 427.   He made some connections to get hop-up parts at a discount, and it wasn't long before his drag racing buddies

found out and wanted the same deal. From such humble beginnings Summit Racing Equipment was born.

Fast-forward to 2019 and that one-man startup is now the World's Speed Shop®—the go-to parts source for thousands of gearheads around the globe. We got here by putting the customer first: save them money on the parts they want, deliver those parts quickly, and back them with the best customer service in the industry.
