CONCORD, N.C. – WKA and Woodbridge Kart Club officials have confirmed the July 25-27 date for the 2014 VIR Road Race Nationals at VIRginia International Raceway to bring next year’s WKA VEGA / TS Racing National Road Racing Series schedule to seven events spanning the East Coast and Midwest.
National classes will count each competitor’s best five out of seven races or 10 of 14, depending on whether the class is a final one, final two format or a standalone division which runs once per weekend.
The season will kick off this December 27-30 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., where the high-flying enduro road race karts will once again hit the DIS high banks in a display of high-speed racing and bravery.
