11.06.2013 - WKA, TRI-STATE TEAMING UP FOR DAYTONA DIRT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

2012 dirtCONCORD, N.C. – The World Karting Association and the Tri-State Pro Series, arguably the country’s top Speedway Dirt series, are teaming for the 2013 version of the Daytona Dirt World Championships at the Daytona International Speedway Flat Track. The event – one of the most prestigious karting events of the year – will take place December 27-29.

The WKA-sanctioned national event will run as the Tri-State’s 2014 season opener. Last year, racers were able to use their best finish between Daytona and the traditional February Tri-State opener at Moree’s Paradise Raceway in South Carolina, toward their Tri-State point standings. Tri-State officials will utilize a similar format this year.

Last year’s Daytona Dirt World Championships resulted in the largest WKA national event of the season.

Over 800 entrants competed on the Daytona limestone, where more than $30,000 in cash purses was awarded, in addition to a host of other product awards.

Officials are working to make the 2013 event even bigger and better than 2012. Purse and special award announcements are coming soon.

Entry fees have now been set for the event. Click here to download the 2013 Daytona Dirt World Championships entry form.
