Making a huge splash in the Briggs and & Stratton 206 market in 2018, VemmeKart USA is continuing that trend in 2019. Distributing one of the top 206 karts on the market, the Indianapolis based team will head south to the Ocala Gran Prix facility in Ocala, Florida for the third and final event weekend in the ROK Cup USA Florida Winter Tour.

“The 206 market is growing and we have been involved for the past year,” explained Andy Gernand. “Eric Fagan has claimed major race wins on a VemmeKart chassis and topped the 206 year end National Point Standings. 2019 is set for even more growth, for the 206 platform as well as the other VemmeKart chassis.”

While in Florida, VemmeKart USA has affordable programs to help get you on track in 2019. VemmeKart USA is offering arrive and drive opportunities in both ROK and Briggs & Stratton divisions, including transportation services from the Midwest departing Indianapolis on March 18th.

Gernand continued, “We are taking a different approach to the 2019 racing season, focusing our efforts on the grassroots side of the program, and dabbling on the national scene. Our Indiana based dealer, Elite Karting Group, is making plans to compete in national events on the East Coast including the United States Pro Kart Series, World Karting Association Manufacturers Cup and ROK Cup USA ROK Fest while JH Motorsports is providing exceptional services and product sales on the West Coast.”

Looking forward to the summer months, VemmeKart USA will have a major presence at both the New Castle Motorsports Park Kart Racers of America program, as well as events at the newly renovated Whiteland Raceway Park.

“Karting in Indiana is growing and we are going to focus our efforts here first, before the national level,” expressed Gernand. “The 206 program is adding drivers every week, New Castle has a handful of national level events and Whiteland is a major appeal to us and our program. Of course, we will travel to Las Vegas in November, but our major effort will be supporting the local level karter and let our dealers, with our assistance, take on the national scene.”

Interested parties looking to compete in either the ROK Cup USA or Briggs & Stratton 206 programs at the third and final round of the Florida Winter Tour are urged to contact VemmeKart USA today.
