Following the successful footsteps of MAXSpeed Entertainment’s US Open series program, a new regional program has been established for Colorado region sprint kart racers. Featuring Shifter and Rotax classes with support from MG Tires and MAXSpeed, the new series schedule will stop at four Super Colorado Sprint tracks and fill a void for drivers in the region.

“This series is an opportunity to bring Colorado karting together once again after several years of fragmentation,” said Stacey Cook of Grand Junction Motor Speedway. “The tracks are all excited to be working together to bring a really good and affordable regional program.”

The 2016 MG Tires Colorado Sprint Championship will encompass the following classes:

Honda 50
Micro Max
Mini Max
Rotax Junior
Rotax Senior
Rotax Master
Shifter Senior
Shifter Masters

Colorado Junior Karting Club (CJKC) Classes (in accordance to class structures):
Kid Kart
Jr 1
Jr 2

Briggs classes as follows:
LO206 Senior (16 years +; 360 pound min)
LO206 Heavy (16 years +; 380 pounds min)

All Rotax events will be United States Rotax MAX Challenge sanctioned with punches available for the Grand Nationals event, and will utilize Mojo tires. All remaining classes will run MG Tires, available at the series tracks, as follows:

Shifter Senior and Masters – MG Yellow
LO206 – MG Reds
CJKC – MG Reds

The races on the 2016 schedule will be held at the following Super Colorado Sprint tracks:
May 14-15 – IMI Motorsports Complex – Dacono, Colorado
June 11-12 – Grand Junction Motor Speedway – Grand Junction, Colorado
July 9-10 – SBR Motorsports Park – Calhan, Colorado

The Colorado Sprint Championship Series will also award prizes and incentives in all classes. MG Tires will award tires to class winners at all events and class champions in Shifter Masters and Shifter Senior will receive free entry and race tires for the 2016 Sofina Foods US Open Presented by Fikse Wheels series finale in Las Vegas, Nevada.

MG tires will also award an all-expense paid entry to the Granja Viana 500 in Brazil in December of 2016. Special Rotax purchase programs will also be in place for series contestants.
