Bridgestone WKA Manufacturers Cup Series Prepping for Monster Daytona Event

As part of the 3 major events taking place at the same time at Daytona International Speedway during Daytona KartWeek, the Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup Series is busting at the seams, as several major teams and manufacturers prepare for one of the most notable 2 Cycle Events in the country, the Margay Sprint Nationals at the World Center of Racing.

The series first stop at Daytona also doubles as the first event for the WKA Winter Cup Series, now beginning its second season of competition. As a result, 9 major classes will be featured at the season opener, including the very impressive Mini Swift class, boasting some of the best new, young talent in 2 cycle racing in America.

In addition, the Pro Swift Sportsman class will be returning for 2017, as well as Yamaha Sportsman, Yamaha Junior, Yamaha Senior, Pro IAME Junior, and Pro IAME Senior, and LO206 Senior, which boasted 40 entries at Daytona 1 season ago. 1 additional class will be featured that will be a part of the 2017 Winter Cup Program, that being the very popular ROK Shifter Class.

In addition to the wealth of classes features, many sponsors, new and existing, will be a part of the 2017 season, including:
