Briggs & Stratton Announces 2018 Weekly Racing Series Program

Over $48,000 in prizes for fourth season of grassroots standings for North America

Have you ever wondered where you stand against local racers in your region or throughout North America? That was the idea behind the Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series, now in its fourth year! The Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series was launched in 2015 to support the talented local racers and the sprint clubs that run the 206 sealed crate engine.

“We wanted a way to support the sprint tracks and racers who support our 206 engine,” stated David Klaus, Director of Briggs Racing. “To date over 10,000 club racers have competed and with the help of our support sponsors, we have been able to give back over $150,000 in prizes!”

There are a few changes in the 2018 Briggs Weekly Racing Series program to be highlight, with a complete list found at karting.com.

  • Series dates: March 1st (with backdating for races already completed) through October 21st.
  • Track/club deadline to sign-up: March 30, 2018.
  • Prizes increase from 50 to 100 prizes per championship!
  • Each club that maintains the program regulations will get access to buy a 5,500 WATT generator, which currently retails for over $850 for $350 DELIVERED (below cost) or a 2,200 pressure washer for $200 DELIVERED (below cost, retail approx. $400).
  • Clubs must submit an AMB CSV file or fill out a supplied CSV (Excel) template for each class.
  • Racers can compete at multiple tracks for multiple prizes but if they compete in multiple classes at the same track only their highest finishing score will count towards a prize.

In addition, each eligible sprint track will continue to receive the Briggs & Stratton WRS decal track pack along other specials planned throughout the season as in previous years.

A special thanks to RLV, AMSOIL, the Hilliard Corporation, and the Briggs & Stratton end products group.

This program would not be possible without the support of sponsors.  Please take the time to thank them for their dedicated support of local racing and keep them in mind the next time you need a generator, pressure washer, race parts, oil, or a clutch.

Track rules, eligibility, sign-up form (now LIVE) and the nuts and bolts of this program are available at www.karting.com.
