IAME Swift Future Stars and NASCAR Stars to Compete in ENEOS Little 600, May 24
In just two weeks, GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, NC will again host the 3rd Annual ENEOS Little 600 free fan event, Tuesday, May 24, featuring popular NASCAR drivers competing in the facility’s fleet of rental karts. Returning as a featured event during the ENEOS Little 600, the Future Stars race gives IAME Swift division karters their chance in the spotlight during a 12-lap race.
By including the youngest of racing’s future stars into the popular NASCAR star event, it creates the opportunity to spotlight the young talent within the IAME Swift division. The Future Stars race provides a huge stage for these 8-12 year-old karters to compete in front of some of the sport’s biggest names.
Winning the inaugural event last year was then 12-year-old karter, Pauly Massimino.
“Last year, it was an amazing experience to compete and win the Little 600,” said Massimino. “I was able to meet NASCAR drivers and speak with them. One day I hope to become a NASCAR driver and this event only fueled my passion for racing more. It was a great event and I would love to do it again!”
