IAME Swift Future Stars Race to be featured in ENEOS Little 600 NASCAR Stars Event, May 24
Announced last Thursday, GoPro Motorplex will again host the 3rd Annual ENEOS Little 600 free fan event, Tuesday, May 24, featuring popular NASCAR drivers competing in the facility’s fleet of rental karts. Returning as a featured event during the ENEOS Little 600, the Future Stars race gives IAME Swift division karters their chance in the spotlight during a 12-lap race.
“Last year, we incorporated the idea to include the youngest of racing’s future stars into our popular ENEOS Little 600 event,” said GoPro Motorplex Owner, Justin Marks. “It was a cool moment for these young karters to compete on such a huge stage and in front of some of the sport’s biggest names. The IAME Swift class is full of talented young drivers and is a perfect platform to be a part of such a star-studded event once again this May.”
