KPX is proud to announce that Sierra Pacific Lithographics is supporting and partnering with us for the 2017 race season. The Milton family plays a big part throughout the whole karting community. They are always looking for ways to help where needed, whether it is on or off the track. If you need printing, marketing, or just racing advice this is the family to reach out to.

We met the Milton’s last year as Blake was working to master the 4-stroke stuff and has become one of the elite drivers in the series. Before going into the 2017 season we had many talks with Shannon Milton on ways the racers could benefit from our partnership. After finding out more information on their wide range of services it was a no brainer for us that Sierra Pacific Lithographics and KPX would make for a great partnership. In reality, we found ourselves needing their services just days later, as we had them design and print the banners for the Super Regional race up in Redding, CA. Sierra Pacific Lithographics not only is giving back to the racers but is also providing a quality product and service that is available to all of our racing family.

Please use Sierra Pacific Lithographics for all of you graphic, print, and marketing needs, as we were very pleased with the services they provided us. They were friendly and very timely with our project. Tell them KPX sent you.

KPX Karting Championship partners with Evinco Tires

Kart Project X

As we near the completion of our 2016 season in Reno, NV on October 16, the directors of the KPX Karting Championship are looking ahead to the growth and prosperity of the series in 2017.  As a result of recent changes in the MG importation and distribution in North America, KPX was faced with a need to evaluate the future of its tire program, but the choice was clear. “We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response to the MG tire here in Northern California and moving forward, we wanted to honor that for our racers,” stated KPX President Kenny Manchester.

evinco-logo

KPX is pleased to announce the partnership with Evinco tires for the coming seasons, utilizing the Evinco Blue tires, manufactured by MG tires.  When considering all options, KPX focused first on what would be best for the racer.  This will be a seamless transition considering that the Evinco “Blue” is the same compound as the MG “Red”.   The result will allow racers to avoid the learning curve associated with a different compound, knowing full well how their chassis are going to respond going into the new year.

The distribution stays the same, your favorite kart shops will be selling the Evinco Tire, and pricing is locked through the end of 2018.  This is an exciting time for karting in Northern California as KPX and Evinco are focused on uniting the region and growing karting from the club level on up. KPX and Evinco understand that it all starts with grassroots racing.

“I am very excited to see the West Coast unite, as it is something I didn’t think I would see in my lifetime,” added Evinco’s Tom Kutscher. “Yes, I am the tire supplier, but more so I am thrilled to see the clubs working together to grow our sport. I have been waiting a long time to see unity and growth of this nature and I am proud to bring tools to the table to help.”

The first event of the season specifying the Evinco tire will be the KPX Super Regional on March 18-19 in Redding, CA. This event will kick off the 2017 season in a big way and will pull together Briggs 206 racers from up and down the West Coast.  Please look towww.kpxracing.com in the future for more details.

KPX would like to thank WR International – Wagner and Luis – for their partnership and support in growing local karting in the 2016 with the MG Tire.

Kart Project X (KPX) is based in Northern California, established in 2014. Formed & guided by racers, for racers, to promote the growth of grassroots karting at the club level.

Briggs & Stratton Racing goes bigger and better going into the 2016 season of the KPX Karting Championship.

Orange motors everywhere with people buzzing about the classes with the large kart counts…

This LO206 motor package has been the hot topic in the sport. From the veteran racers, to entry level drivers with no mechanical experience, or even the guy who hung his suit up years ago, the LO206 is for anyone with the desire to race.
