Grattan Nationals Next Up for WKA National Road Racing Series

The first 2013 WKA VEGA / TS Racing Road Racing Series national event north of the Mason-Dixon Line is set to go off next weekend, May 17-19, at the popular Grattan Raceway in Belding, Michigan.

The Grattan Nationals is the first of two back-to-back Dart Kart Speedway Club-hosted WKA Road Racing nationals, the second being just a few weeks later, a June 7-9 date at the famed Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

The Grattan Nationals marks the fourth stop on the 2013 National Road Racing circuit, and the second consecutive year DKC and WKA have visited the two-mile road course. Last year’s event produced over 300 entries and a financially successful show for Dart Kart, prompting the Ohio-based club to revisit the scenic facility once again in 2013.

Pre-entry numbers are strong for this year’s version of the Grattan Road Race and it appears another respectable crowd of enduro-style kart racers will gather in western Michigan next weekend.

Pre-registration remains open through Saturday, May 11, giving racers a chance to still pre-enter within less than a week until the event.
