I just noticed that no Midwest SKUSA schedule was put out. I know it was not well attended last year. Interesting, no SKUSA and the Great Lake pro series also gone other then a few one offs. I know most shifter kart guys are showing up to the roadraces as am I but is shifter sprinting pretty much dead? Were is everyone racing I still think SKUSA should push the one off New Castle Shifter fest.
I haven’t spoken directly with SKUSA about the series, but looking at the numbers, it appears the numbers could not support a full season. As of right now, there are no confirmed dates set for a Midwest Shifterfest.
I plan on running Stock Moto at New Castle this year and joining the NESKS when they visit Pitt Race. To fill out the schedule, I’ve also found a few of the SIRA races that they will allow me to run in and a few dates at G&J and Pitt Race. Keep the Faith… and hope to see you at the track!
There’s no Midwest SKUSA series this year, but they are planning a shifterfest @ NCMP in September.
Off the top of my head, shifter options in the midwest are….
CES: Blackhawk, IL, June | Grattan, MI, July | Blackhawk August | Gingerman, MI September
WKA: Grattan, MI, May MKC: Waterford Hills, MI, June | MIS, MI, September
Rock Island Grand Prix: labor day weekend
SKUSA Shifterfest, NCMP, IN September (2nd weekend?) SIRA in and around IN Road America Kart Club
You wont go wrong with any of these events but you will find biggest grids for shifters at CES Blackhawk and MKC @ MIS. We had 47 shifters lined up at Blackhawk in August last year. A mix of Stock, mod and KZ/ICC.
If you have questions PM me as I’m not on EKN a lot these days.
What Jim said if you are looking for outside the Michigan area. If you feel like a trip, check out Blackhawk in Illinois, otherwise, hit the CES events at Grattan and Gingerman. Two of the best tracks in the country.
