Continuing to grow the Charlotte Karting Challenge, the World Karting Association (WKA) has partnered with the GOAT Series, a traveling dirt kart racing program, for their upcoming April 16-17 event. Taking place at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, the two programs will run back-to-back days providing more opportunity for racers and decreasing the cost for all competitors.
“I am very excited to partner with Terry Odom of the GOAT Series. He is a great supporter of the WKA insurance programs, and he runs an amazing series,” expressed WKA Chairman of the Board Mike Tetreault. “Friday afternoon will be a fun day with support classes and payouts for the WKA side of the program and then Saturday the full GOAT Series class structure with payouts will be on track. Personally, I can’t wait to put on this amazing event and see the karts on track in Charlotte.”
“Working with WKA has been great. They insure all my events and have brought stability to the Dirt market with its national series and rule book,” added GOAT Series Promoter Terry Odom. “We are very excited to see our GOAT Series racers tackle the Big Oval at The Dirt Track in Charlotte and run back-to-back with the WKA Maxxis Speedway Dirt Series.”
With this being a one-off event for Friday’s WKA classes as well as a points race for the GOAT Series on Saturday, WKA will offer a temporary membership for anyone who is not a WKA member looking to compete in Friday and Saturday’s wheel-to-wheel action.
