A new five-race indoor karting series will heat up the state of Illinois this winter. Following a successful event this past March, the Clash at the Coliseum will return to the coliseum at the Illinois State Fairgrounds with five events held between October 25, 2019 and March 28, 2020.
The Clash at the Coliseum Indoor Winter Series will be co-promoted by Jeremy and Ashly Burnett of Millbridge Speedway (NC) and Kevin & Tammy Gundaker of Tri-City Speedway (IL).
Points will be awarded throughout the five-race series and champions will be crowned following the completion of the final event. Classes and rules for the series will be announced soon.
All events will be completed as two-day events, with the first round being held on October 25-26. The series will resume on December 6-7 for round two, prior to the third event on January 31 and February 1. The penultimate event on the schedule will be held February 28-29, leading into the championship event on March 27-28.
All five events will be held on the dirt oval at the newly-renovated coliseum at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, Illinois. Indoor parking for teams will be available for all five events.
Teams competing in the race will receive increased exposure as the entire series will be streamed live on Speed51.com.
