    The Utah Karting Championship will crank up again in April of 2015 at Miller Motorsports Park.  Sadly the Rotax Masters Max class is all but gone with only 1-4 drivers last season.  DD2 is even worse with only one driver who ran with the heavy shifters until they kicked him out because he was beating a lot of them!

    So I’ll be running with the kids in Seniors and then add lots of weight and run Masters at National Events like the Rotax Challenge of the Americas.  I enjoy the excitement of Seniors but I’ll be 56 in March and sure would like to see a great class of “old guys” to run in Masters or DD2.

    Perry, I saw your video from this summer. Are you sure you want to run a DD2 ;) The Masters class is a tough one to figure out. I’m not sure why more people are subscribed there, but I understand it struggles in a lot of areas. I have heard of one or two people talking about running that class. What do you think would get a few more?

    Lol, yes Justin, my first choice would still be DD2. And it would be great if we could build up Rotax Masters. I’m stoked to run with all of the Masters drivers this weekend in Tucson! I’ll ask them how we could get more Masters in UKC. Thanks.
