We’re now one month away from the inaugural AKRA American Sprint Cup Series event.
The first race of our new 2-cycle and 4-cycle sprint series – the “Southern Tour” Round 1 presented by Razor Chassis – will take place March 18-20 at Carolina Motorsports Park’s 0.7-mile kart track in conjunction with the AKRA Vega Tire Road Race Series on the 2.3-mile CMP road course.
Keeping in mind that multiple sprint karting events are taking place in the Southeast this winter, and with the bills of the holiday season still not far removed for American families, AKRA will extend the discounted level-one pre-entry prices through the entirety of pre-registration, which runs through Friday, March 11.
Pre-entry prices will remain at $80 per class and $55 per driver for Friday practice.

Other fees include the AKRA Associate (adult) membership for $45/year; Junior Associate membership for $15/year; parking is $50 per spot; transponder rental is $25 per event and event pit passes range from $15 (one-day pass) to $35 for a four-day pass.
“We’re extending the discounted pre-entry prices in an act of good faith and in an attempt to offer as reasonable karting package as possible in the American Sprint Cup Series,” AKRA owner Bill McCutcheon stated. “We want racers and families to attend and join the fun we’re ready to embark on, and hopefully this will get more racers who may be on the fence to come out to Kershaw this March. We’re working daily to be ready to provide the best product possible for our customers. And if you’re still not sure on attending, you have another three weeks to pre-enter at the price of $80 per class.”
