2017 AKRA Sprint “NORTHERN TOUR” Schedule Announced
Series to open with North-South Shootout April 21-23 at Carolina Motorsports Park
The four-race AKRA / Vega USA American Sprint Cup Series “Northern Tour” schedule is now set with four events at four terrific sprint tracks that offer racers an intriguing mix of fast, technical circuits and tight “bullring” style courses.
The Northern Tour will open April 21-23 south of the Mason-Dixon Line at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, SC, in conjunction with AKRA’s Southern Tour. The “North / South Shootout” will give Northern racers an opportunity to compete against their southern-based counterparts at the challenging 0.7-mile track, which includes a pair of long straightaways, chicanes, off-camber and sweeping corners. Located about one hour south of Charlotte, CMP is one of the best karting circuits on the east coast and for years has hosted marquee national events.
