This is badass, Tim. And you’re right, this is the kind of stuff we need to do to push the sport out in different directions. It’s not something that we can do internally, it’s an effort that needs to push to the outside. I’m working on a new article for Performance Racing Industry magazine right now, and that’s the kind of thing we need to do.
Thanks for the link.July 31, 2013 at 2:05 pm #5490
In regards to coverage for the Grand Finals, KRN will be handling the live video with Ken Walker, as they are doing here in Mooresville. I’ll be doing the trackside play-by-play and we’ve got some cool stuff in the works for that.
From the discussions I’ve had with both MAXspeed and SKUSA, DD2 (and JuniorMax) at the SuperNationals is a one-time program. There are no plans to have the category on the SKUSA Pro Tour in 2014.July 30, 2013 at 12:19 am #5296
I always like seeing people step up to organize certain classes and get guys out to the same events. EKN has done that in the past to try to support small niche classes. This develops so much momentum, and we all know that bigger fields attracts more racers.
Marc-Andre, I welcome you to send in a preview heading into the event with the driver roster, and we’ll get it up on the site. Send us a race report after the event as well and we’ll help give the series some exposure.July 29, 2013 at 11:04 pm #5290
David Cole and I will be covering the races from trackside and will have all sorts of multimedia, including race reports, paddock notes, audio interviews and a photo gallery we’ll add to continually. You’ll be able to follow through our EKN Trackside page. We land in Charlotte tomorrow morning and will be providing pit notes first thing Wednesday morning. Come Thursday morning, I’ll also be handling the PA duties for the trackside play-by-play.
In addition, the Kart Racing Network will be broadcasting a live video feed from the event, which I believe is being hosted at http://www.gorotax.com. The coverage is scheduled to begin on Thursday, August 1 @ 11:00 am Eastern.July 29, 2013 at 7:46 pm #5272
Looking forward to getting on the ground in Charlotte tomorrow to get my first look at the new Mooresville facility. Should be a great weekend all around, and I know that I’m excited to be back on the trackside PA again for the Grand Nationals. I had a blast with the event staff in South Bend last year and look forward to doing all again this year in North Carolina.
Can’t wait to see how Team USA stacks up for the Grand Finals!July 19, 2013 at 3:18 pm #4117
The PM feature still works on EKNClassic.com, and we’ll leave it running, so you can still contact people there.
And I just looked through a couple of my PMs on the old site, so they should still be working. We haven’t restricted access old forum PMs at all. There should be no issue there.July 18, 2013 at 10:30 pm #4009
Ken, Ijust landed and it was a wild landing for sure…it was like the guy was flying through tic-tac-toe at Infineon..it was awesome! The clouds are heavy here, the winds are high, and we had a little rain as well. Hopefully this blows through tonight and there’s not tent damage at the track.July 18, 2013 at 2:28 pm #3961July 17, 2013 at 8:57 pm #3898
Dude…you suck. See you in Grand Junction.July 17, 2013 at 6:12 pm #3894
