Showing speed and garnering results in the cadet, two-cycle and shifterkart markets, VemmeKart USA continues to expand their North American program.

Claiming the LO206 Senior victory and a $1,000.00 payday, Fagan put VemmeKart USA on the top step of the podium.

“It was a great weekend for our brand,” explained Andy Gernand, Importer for the VemmeKart product line. “We have proven success in the cadet, 100cc and 125cc markets throughout the 2017 and 2018 seasons and now have made a big splash in the LO206 community. Eric helped us achieve our goal of a victory this past weekend but we have been up front in local New Castle Motorsports Park competition as we work to develop the overall LO206 package.”

I have made the commitment to make karting a full-time effort with my family behind me 100%. We celebrated the victory following the event, but it was right back to work Monday morning to prepare for Las Vegas.”
