EKN Christmas List – Karting Special: Part 1
21 days left to shop for that karting person in your family
Happy Holidays from the eKartingNews.com staff. The month of December is considered the ‘off-season’ for the sport with little racing taking place across North America. It gives racers, teams, and shops a chance to catch-up and prepared for the upcoming season. It also means Christmas time. EKN is collecting a number of products and services available from the number of partners and advertisers to help find that perfect gift for the kart racer in your family.

Briggs & Stratton Racing: LO206 Engine
#OperationGrassroots is growing across North America. Briggs & Stratton’s introduction of the Local Option 206 engine has helped to fill a void in the sport of karting. The LO206 engine offers up a quality product that allows new racers to enter the sport without the hefty initial cost compared to other karting powerplants, along with reviving older karts laying around in garages all across the country to be rejuvenated with a Briggs engine. With a strict rules package and superior manufacturing process, the LO206 produces close racing with the equality of the engines produced, bringing it back to the chassis and driver deciding who is best on the track. Tracks all across North America have added the engine to its line-up, and Briggs returned the favor thanks to the new Briggs Weekly Racing Series program with over $50,000 in Briggs products awarded back to racers and tracks in 2015. A larger prize package and track list scheduled for 2016, with a larger field of racers anticipated to take part in the Briggs WRS program. If you have a racer in the family and just not sure what to get them to get started, make it a Briggs LO206 engine. Find out more at Briggs Racing website and on Facebook.
