This year, KartSport NA will field 23 drivers with sponsorship from GoPro, the World’s Most Versatile Camera and American Medical Response, the nation’s leading medical transportation company.

KartSport NA is proud to announce their driver line-up for this year’s running of the SuperNationals. Their star-studded line-up includes GoPro Team Drivers, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Jamie McMurray and AJ Allmendinger and IZOD IndyCar driver, Will Power. Both Power (Arrow) and McMurray (FA) will compete in the TaG Masters division and Allmendinger (FA) will run in the TaG Senior division.

“I am very much looking forward to it,” said Power. “It is going to be super competitive and a lot of good guys running out there.  I’m glad I have some of the best drivers on my side as teammates. I have no doubt I will have good equipment by running with KartSport. They always do a great job. It’s also pretty cool to be a GoPro Team Driver. I’ve been meaning to get my GoPro mounted on my mountain bike. They are such cool cameras, hopefully I can learn from the footage they capture this weekend as well.”
