Nearly $50,000 in Prizes Available in 2017 Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series
Have you ever wondered where you stand against local racers in your region or throughout North America? That is the premise behind the Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series.
The Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series was launched in 2015 to support our talented local racers and the sprint clubs that run our 206 sealed crate engine.
“Capturing the excitement of 206 racing, highlighting our racers and participating clubs, and giving back is what the WRS is all about.”
Stated David Klaus, Director – Briggs Racing.
There are several changes in our 2017 program. A few we wanted to highlight, a complete list can be found at www.karting.com.
- Bigger, better prizes with a focus on National points to determine who wins what!
- Series dates: Feb. 11th (with backdating for races already completed) through Oct. 8th.
- Track/club deadline to sign-up: April 12th.
- Points system
- Senior/Master max. kart count increases from 10 to 11.
- Junior max. kart count increases from 7 to 10.
- A 0.25 BONUS point will be awarded to each pre-final winner.
- The last tie-breaker will be actual karts finished in front of verses average.
- Clubs asked us for a bigger fundraiser or banquet giveaway item and we responded! 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).
In addition each eligible sprint track will continue to receive our WRS decal track pack along other specials planned throughout the season as in previous years.
A special thanks to RLV, SONIC tools USA, Amsoil, the Hilliard Corporation, and our PowerSmart Inverter Generator group.
This program would not be possible without the support of our 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, race parts, tools, 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.
