Operation Grassroots – Episode 1
The newest show to hit the EKN Radio Network is ‘Operation Grassroots’, a podcast geared solely on the foundation of the sport. The hub of the show will be discussion centered on the grassroots level of karting, from club racing to regional racing, all focused around the Briggs & Stratton 206 engine platform. Our #OperationGrassroots movement has been based around the Briggs powerplant, with the ultimate goals of bringing new people into the sport and igniting the spark of former racers to come back into what is the most economical form of karting.
The first episode of our ‘Operation Grassroots’ podcast features an interview with KPX Karting Championship co-director Chris Rossi. The KPX program has been a catalyst of growth and newfound cooperation in the Northern California area. EKN’s Rob Howden talks with Rossi about the birth of the KPX program, the past seasons, the future of the series and, of course, the sport in general.
