Between Friday practice and weekend racing approximately 600 entries – 142 practice and 452 race entries – challenged the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Dart Kart Club / Championship Enduro Series Road Race national event, sanctioned by AKRA and title sponsored by Vega USA.
The competition was made available on Race Monitor from practice group No. 1 through the final race Sunday afternoon. Terrific weather and positive attitudes greeted racers and teams from around the country at Mid-Ohio.
A large contingent of over 50 sprint shifter karts hit the track and laydown enduro classes were filled with racers from across the country and stout competition. Other popular class groups were Piston Port Sprint, Briggs Animal Sprint, Open Sprint and TaG Masters, all of which reached double-digit entry counts.
The largest class was Saturday’s 125 Shifter Sprint, which started 36 karts!
