Bridgestone Offers Huge Prizes to WKA Manufacturers Cup Series Racers

Bridgestone Tires, one of the World Karting Association’s long-standing sponsors has created for their loyal racers, the Bridgestone Mid-Season Shootout.  Bridgestone Tires has put together an offer for free entries to future events for some classes, while others will be offered invites to the ROK Cup International Final where Bridgestone is the official tire.

The Bridgestone Mid-Season Shootout will see all eight classes receive an additional prize package on top of the end of the year awards and prizes that have already been established from the Manufacturers Cup program. The winner of the Shootout in Mini Swift, Pro Swift Sportsman, Pro IAME Junior and Pro IAME Senior will receive an all-expense paid trip, less travel, to the ROK Cup International Final in South Garda Italy in October that utilize Bridgestone tires. Shootout class champions will have the opportunity to compete in Vortex Mini ROK (winners of both Mini Swift and Pro Swift Sportsman) as well as Vortex ROK Junior and Vortex ROK Senior.

The Bridgestone Mid-Season Shootout will also see a lucrative prize package for Yamaha Sportsman, Yamaha Junior, Yamaha Senior and LO206 Senior. The highest point earner after the best five of six main events that conclude in Dousman, Wisconsin will receive entry fee, race tires and drivers pit pass to the final WKA Grand Nationals at the GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, North Carolina over the October 13 – 15 weekend.
