1/19/19 - New Castle Motorsports Park is happy to present our 2019 Race and Event Schedule! The KRA Series will run a 14 Race series again this season and NCMP will also host numerous Regional and National events in 2019. We look forward to another exciting and fun year of kart racing at NCMP!

The 2019 Kart Racers of America Series will have a couple class changes in 2019. KRA will have a combined but scored separate Mini Swift/Micro Swift class in 2019. To not add more classes and time to the race day, Yamaha Jr. Sportsman will go from 2 classes to 1 in 2019.

Also in 2019 the KRA Series will permit left hand drive Briggs engine karts in the Briggs LO206 Cadet class. With a season of watching the left hand drive karts race at many events outside of KRA, we have not seen an on track performance advantage with that engine location and are confident with the parity with either engine location.

We will update the KRA class page very soon with the new information as well as our preentry page.
