Discounted Local Briggs 206 Sr. Added and Popular Configuration 40 Slated for All Classes

CONCORD, NC - WKA opens registration for the WKA Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup, Top Kart USA Nationals, October 11-13, adding Briggs 206 Senior for a reduced price of $100 for the weekend.

Strengthening last year’s successful WKA Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup at Newcastle Motorsports Park, series organizers have made the bold move to once again race on the challenging Configuration 40 for this year’s campaign. 

“Such amazing racing was enjoyed last year on Configuration 40 of the famed Newcastle Motorsports Park, we just had to do it again this year for our Grand National event.” Stated WKA President Kevin Williams, “What’s more, we wanted to continue to embrace the Briggs racers  by adding the hugely popular Briggs 206 Senior as a local option, making the event easy for them with a reduced entry fee for the weekend, and allowing either new or used Bridgestone YLC’s.”


After a long season, which started in December at the famed Daytona International Speedway Kartweek, the Newcastle event will see Championship battles decided in all categories.  If you can’t make the event, be  sure to tune into eKartingNews LIVE, all weekend, for the play-by-play.
