Ft. Lauderdale, FL – August 11, 2016 – With on track results plentiful, BENIK Kart is beginning to make a name for themselves off the track as well. Growing their dealer network to add Iron Rock Motorsports last month, the Florida based company is pleased to announce the addition of Nevada’s Acceleration Karting as a new west coast program. Taking on the BENIK Kart product line effective immediately, Acceleration Karting will stock, sell, service and promote the BENIK brand.

“Our results on the track are helping grow the dealer network off the track,” explained Nick Mitchell, Co-Founder of BENIK Kart. “We have signed major dealers for our brand as well as top quality race teams and with their help, will bring BENIK to the forefront of North American karting.”

Owned and operated by Curtis Cooksey and his team, Acceleration Karting has been a major player in the karting industry for quite some time. Cooksey, earning multiple karting championships along the way, has more than twenty years of karting experience and is well known for building two very successful mail order businesses within the karting industry.

Mitchell added, “Acceleration Karting has been a business that I have recognized since moving to the United States. They offer top quality customer service and are true to their word. We could not ask for a better company to help us sell and promote the BENIK brand.”

BENIK Kart exploded on the scene in 2013 and has been a force ever since. Claiming race wins and championships in North America’s most prolific series, Team BENIK and BENIK Kart have continued their upward development in driver coaching, data analysis and sheer growth. Forming an alliance with the powerhouse and world renowned Carlin Motorsports team, BENIK will play a major role in the open wheel world of racing in North America in 2017 and beyond as they have executed the construction of a ladder system from karting to cars within their own organization.
