After the announcement that Cold Stone Creamery would be the presenting sponsor of the 2014 Rotax MAX Challenge United States Grand Nationals, MAXSpeed Group is pleased to confirm class, award and welcome party supporters for the annual event. With support coming from both in and outside the karting industry, the Cold Stone US Grand Nationals is quickly becoming one of the most sought after events on the 2014 racing calendar.

“We have had a lot of members of the karting industry step up to support the Cold Stone US Grand Nationals,” expressed MAXSpeed Group’s Richard Boisclair. “Without the support from Cold Stone and all of our class and welcome party sponsors, an event of this magnitude would not be possible.”
