We are really excited about this latest announcement!

ROCK ISLAND, IL – July 18, 2016 – The Rock Island Grand Prix has announced a new partnership that places Mediacom Communications as the first naming rights sponsor for the world’s largest karting street race. The high-performance race held annually over Labor Day weekend will now be named the Xtream Rock Island Grand Prix powered by Mediacom.

Mediacom, the area’s leading broadband provider, signed-on for a three-year sponsorship that will provide the Rock Island Grand Prix with television advertising valued at more than $55,000 and targeted to sports fans and other viewers throughout several Midwestern states.

The 2,700 TV spots per year should be a huge booster in exposure for karting in the Midwest too.
