“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to work with WKA and we want the transition for dealers and racers to be seamless,” explained TS Racing’s Tod Spaude. “By adding Grand Products with their dealer network along with our distribution center in the Southeast and the distribution programs already established in the Midwest, we have covered the market for tire supply extremely well and are ready for a successful 2021 race season and beyond. We want to ensure the karting world has plenty of options to purchase tires and offer the best service possible. This new program will allow tracks to have a smooth transition to Vega products.”
Next up for the WKA Manufacturers Cup will be the WKA Karting Challenge at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on April 15-18. Details on this event, as well as the WKA Summer Club Series at Charlotte will be released in the very near future.
