John Bonanno, an avid supporter of karting in the region as well as a formidable opponent on the track stated, “The racing community in the Mid-Atlantic states is in a tremendously healthy position as the drivers, tracks, and race event management are all poised to reap the benefits of working together – It’s an exciting time! We look forward to seeing EVERYONE at the track!  I’m personally very much looking forward to getting back into the seat this season! Everyone should know we are launching this exciting new series for you, the driver. It’s up to you to make it successful by being there.”
