A little more than a month separates us from the TRD Keith Kunz Motorsports Giveback Classic presented by Rowdy Energy at Millbridge Speedway on November 2-4. Racing will begin on Tuesday, November 3 for the marquee Micro Sprint event, with several sponsors stepping up to be a part of the action.
Tuesday night at the KKM Giveback Classic is now Sawyer Chassis Preliminary Night presented by Victory Lane Karting. The night will set the stage for Wednesday’s feature racing, headlined by a 67-lap Non-Wing Micro Sprint feature where the winner will collect $5,000 and earn a seat in a Keith Kunz Motorsports Midget at the 2021 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals.
Micro Sprint competitors will first compete in Factor 1 East qualifying during Sawyer Chassis Preliminary Night presented by Victory Lane Karting. Tuesday’s schedule will also include heat races, sponsored by Calico Coatings and Smith Titanium.
“An event of the magnitude of the KKM Giveback Classic would not be possible without all of the people who support us here at Millbridge,” said Millbridge Speedway co-owner Ashly Burnett. “We are very grateful to everyone who has stepped up to make this event a reality and look forward to an incredible two nights of racing.”
After being an Outlaw Kart event in 2018, the TRD Keith Kunz Motorsports Giveback Classic presented by Rowdy Energy will feature the 600cc Non-Wing Micro Sprints. Monday, November 2 will be an open practice night for teams, with Tuesday night reserved for preliminary action. Wednesday, November 4 will be headlined by the 67-lap A-Feature to decide the winner of the 2nd KKM Giveback Classic.
In addition to a KKM ride in the Chili Bowl, the race will also pay $5,000 to the winner. If the winning driver is ineligible to compete in the Chili Bowl due to age or if he/she already has a ride for the event, the winner will receive a $10,000 bonus.
After a successful TRD Micro Showdown in 2019, the Micro Sprints have become a regular part of Millbridge’s racing schedule. The season has been an exciting one, building anticipation for this year’s KKM Giveback Classic.
