CKNA Rules revision 22.1 has been released!

From time to time, we feel it necessary to revise some rules mid-season in an effort to improve the efficiency of our events as well as the experience for the competitors. With five races already under our belts for 2022, we found a few things we wanted to improve upon for our racers! Other than some clarifications and house keeping, here’s an outline of the changes. Please make sure to download rev22.1 of the rules ASAP so you can read the full details of all the changes: Canada exceptions: As we launch the Canadian Division in just a few weeks, there are some differences in both class structure and safety requirements.

Spring Nats Supps and Schedule Outline

The long awaited schedule for the 2022 Spring Nationals has been uploaded to the website! You can download them either on the homepage or on the Spring Nationals Page. Here are three important things to note: There is a new Pre-Tech form this season, that makes you acknowledge the kart number you registered with is correct, and on your kart DURING PRE-TECH.

Cup Karts North Round 1 announcement!

For round 1 of the Cup Karts North Divisional Series, we will be returning to one of the most historic karting tracks in the Midwest… G&J Kartways!

It’s a great track for 4-cycle racing! All though the date for this event had been announced at the Grand Nationals in 2021, we had not confirmed the location simply because we had not had a chance to solidify the

Introducing: Cup Karts Canada!

Today, we get to make one of the biggest announcements we have ever made… we are pleased to officially announce the launch of Cup Karts Canada! As CKNA continues to grow, we have been looking for new regions that already have die-hard Briggs racers that would appreciate our trademark family friendly 4-cycle only events.. Canada has been on the top of the list for a few years due to the many 4-cycle drivers already racing there, and the high caliber of drivers that compete in the category throughout the country. The dream of bringing CKNA events to Canada began to become a reality at the beginning of the year. CKNA owners Greg Jasperson and Steve Vermeer sat down with long
