With the Cold Stone US Grand Nationals fast approaching, MAXSpeed Group is pleased to welcome TacoTime to the event weekend festivities.  On site at the Miller Motorsports Park (MMP) in Tooele, Utah throughout the race weekend, TacoTime will be handing free TacoTime food to registered competitors on Saturday, July 19 while Cold Stone Creamery will serve delicious ice cream Sunday, July 20 to all registered drivers free of charge.

“We are pleased to welcome TacoTime to the Cold Stone US Grand Nationals,” explained event promoter and President of the MAXSpeed Group Richard Boisclair. “We are continuing to bring outside supporters into karting as TacoTime will join the Mazda Road to Indy, University of Miami and Cold Stone Creamery as outside industry sponsors and supporters. The event is set to be the biggest in US Grand Nationals history and we are excited to have the support from all of these people.”

With unofficial practice beginning on Tuesday, July 15, the on track action will begin to heat up on Friday as qualifying will take place and the chase for SuperPole will commence. Dubbed ‘Fast Friday’ with all quick time qualifiers starting in the prime position for his or her three heat races, these talented drivers will start their weekend off right as they look to be crowned as the Cold Stone US Grand Nationals champion. With several positions available on Team USA at the annual Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals (RMCGF) later this year in Valencia, Spain, the wheel-to-wheel action is sure to be fierce at MMP.
