In a little more than one month the continent’s best Outlaw Kart drivers will be descending upon Salisbury, North Carolina to race in the inaugural Keith Kunz Motorsports Giveback Classic at Millbridge Speedway. The winner of the race will receive a seat in a Keith Kunz Motorsports Midget to race at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals in January. Millbridge Speedway officials also are proud to announce that the race will also boast one of the largest purses in Outlaw Kart racing.
The KKM Giveback Classic on Wednesday, October 31 has a total purse of nearly $18,000 to be paid throughout the A-Main and two B-Mains. The A-Main purse itself will pay out a purse greater than $13,000 with $2,000 going to the winner and at least $300 to start. The drivers that fail to transfer out of the B-Mains will receive $200.
But of course, this race isn’t about the money. This race is about winning the opportunity of a lifetime, and that is the chance to race in the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals for Keith Kunz Motorsports, the powerhouse team of Midget racing.
Millbridge Speedway officials are expecting more than 100 competitors from all over North America to take part in this first-of-its-kind of event.
