Operation Grassroots: Episode 3 – Greg Jasperson
The newest show to hit the EKN Radio Network is ‘Operation Grassroots’, a podcast geared solely on the foundation of the sport. The hub of the show will be discussion centered on the grassroots level of karting, from club racing to regional racing, all focused around the Briggs & Stratton 206 engine platform. Our #OperationGrassroots movement has been based around the Briggs powerplant, with the ultimate goals of bringing new people into the sport and igniting the spark of former racers to come back into what is the most economical form of karting.
The third episode of our ‘Operation Grassroots’ podcast features an interview with Cup Karts North America’s Greg Jasperson. He along with a handful of people created this regional program in the upper midwest and have continued to evolve the program expanding from Minnesota to Ohio, Michigan to Iowa. EKN’s Rob Howden talks with Jasperson about the development of the CKNA and where it is going for 2018 and beyond.
