WKA Manufacturers Cup Series Pittsburgh Online Registration Now Open

With the WKA Winter Cup Series serving as the buffer between the Daytona Mfg Cup event back in December, and the race #2 May event at Pittsburgh International Race Complex, it will serve as a welcome sight for those who are specifically running the Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup Series solely, as the online registration for the Keystone State Nationals is now open.

Scheduled for May 19-21, the Pittsburgh event will also serve as a return for the Kid Kart program, which will be running as an exhibition class. For competitors in that class, the pit pass will also serve as the entry fee for that weekend. In addition to the Kid Karts, the full national slate of classes will be returning, including:

CIK LO206 Senior
Allison Racing Engines Yamaha Sportsman

Comet Racing Engines Yamaha Junior
Franklinkart.com Yamaha Senior
CRPRACING.com Mini Swift
IAME USA East Pro Swift Sportsman
Woltjer Racing Engines Pro IAME Junior
KartSport North America Pro IAME Senior

The return of the Money Races will also take place at Pittsburgh, with competitors in Pro Swift Sportsman, Pro IAME Junior and Senior running for paydays in the top 2, with a set of Bridgestone Tires going to the third-place finishers. Sportsman and Junior drivers will run for a $500 payday, given to the weekends overall champion, with $250 going to 2nd place. For Senior, $1,000 will go to the overall weekend winner, with $500 going to second.

The event will also mark another drawing for a Tillotson Generator, which will also be done during the Sunday afternoon podiums.

While Winter Cup Champions were just crowned, the points battle at Pittsburgh will be a result of the current points from the Margay Sprint Championships back in December at Daytona.
