KERSHAW, S.C. — The Maxxis 4-Cycle Sprint Series’ sixth round of racing August 13-14 at Carolina Motorsports Park will be held under the new Musco LED track lighting system at the 0.7-mile Kershaw, S.C., course.
Now called Carolina Kart Park at CMP, the track will play host to the sixth and final points race of the year for the Maxxis series. Maxxis’ Grand Nationals November 19-21 at 103rd Street Sports Complex is a special non-points event.
The state-of-the-art Musco lighting system was installed earlier this summer and this will be the first event held under the lights at CKP. To our knowledge, this August’s Maxxis race is the only organized kart event to be held at CKP this year.
Maxxis announced the event schedule earlier this week. Carolina Kart Park will be open for practice from 1pm to 7pm Thursday and official Maxxis practice will take place from 4pm to 9pm Friday.
On Saturday, tech and registration open at 8am and the drivers meeting won’t take place until 3pm. A single round of practice is slated for 3:30 with qualifying starting at 5. One round of 8-lap heat races and finals will follow. LO206 classes will run 12-lap finals while Vintage and Kid Kart divisions will run 10-laps for their main events.
Gates open at 7am both Friday and Saturday.
With temperatures near 100 degrees lately in the Carolinas, most of Friday’s practice and Saturday’s racing will take place after the hottest hours of the day and hopefully give racers and teams at least slightly more comfortable weather in which to compete.
