CONCORD, N.C. — The much-anticipated World Karting Association (WKA) Vega Tires National Road Race Series schedule is here. After weeks of waiting, series officials are pleased to confirm a solid six-weekend race schedule that will kick off next month at the famed Daytona International Speedway during WKA KartWeek.
“The planning team at WKA went to great efforts to bring back a true National Road Race Series program, and visiting tracks that WKA hasn’t been in a while was one way to spice up the 2023 schedule,” expressed WKA President Kevin Williams. “We are excited to get the year started with Daytona KartWeek, while offering races in both the North and South. It’s going to be an exciting year.”
The newly structured Vega Tires National Road Race schedule has been built to reestablish a true national road racing program for WKA members across some of North America’s road racing premier facilities. WKA has worked hard to renew its longstanding partnership with the Southern Kart Club at the newly repaved Roebling Road Raceway course which will be the home of the second event over the March 3-5 weekend.
With New Jersey Motorsports Park and Carolina Motorsports Park absent from the national schedule for several seasons, Road Racing teams and competitors will return to these facilities for event weekends three and five in late March at NJMP and Labor Day weekend at CMP. Additionally, the Carolina Motorsports Park event will serve as a “WKA doubleheader” with road racers at CMP’s 14-turn, 2.279-mile road course and the Gold Cup Series at the 0.7-mile kart track.
Along with Daytona, Roebling Road, Carolina Motorsports Park, and New Jersey Motorsports Park, Vega Tires National Road Race competitors will also visit the famed Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and the ultra-competitive Pittsburgh International Race Complex.
