2018 IKF 2 & 4 Stroke Grand Nationals

skusa ikf unite 300The 2018 International Kart Federation (IKF) 2-Cycle and 4-Cycle Grand Nationals will be hosted at North Texas Karters (NTK) from Wednesday, June 27th through Saturday, June 30th, where the much-heralded national trophy known as the “Duffy” will be awarded to the winners of each class.

The IKF Grand Nationals have long been the granddaddy of national kart races. But, with the merger of SKUSA and IKF, the future of the “Duffy” award is still unknown. This might be the last chance you have to see it.

The "Duffy" is considered the highest award in karting. The trophy honors Frank "Duffy" Livingstone who was active in karting as a driver, mechanic, and IKF board member and then president. He was the co-founder of organized karting and the Go-Kart Club of America, which evolved into the International Kart Federation. Frank passed away in 2017 at the age of 92. The “Duffy” trophy is a bronze statuette of ‘Joe Karter,’ standing 12 inches tall and mounted on a wooden base 6 inches high.

The 2018 IKF Grand Nationals which will be hosted at North Texas Karters on June 25th- 30th are expected to bring in a huge field of the top racers in the country.

Most of the 4-Cycle classes will race on Wednesday and Thursday, with the 2-Cycles racing on Friday and Saturday.

June 25th will be a practice day made available by NTK. June 26th will be the official IKF practice day.

In 2016, NTK hosted the 4-Cycle Grand Nationals, which fielded a large number of the Briggs & Stratton LO206 racers.

Follow us on social media where details such as official schedule, discount hotel rates and more will be posted in the coming days.

May Letter From the President

john rayThe Spring Series is over. We will be awarding trophies for our class champs soon. Now we move into our Summer Series and start racing at night under the lights starting at five o'clock in the evening.

Summer 1 will also be the Jim Hickerson Memorial Race in honor of the late Jim Hickerson who was our announcer and friend for a number of years. He always had a way with the microphone and dubbing racers with his brand of titles. We miss him very much. This is our way of honoring his legacy.

I need to remind all of our members about the speed limit on the easement road. Ten miles per hour may seem slow, but it keeps me out of trouble with the owner of the drag strip and his racers. Please comply.

The IKF Grand Nationals race is coming up in June. Registration forms are online. Remember, if you are not an IKF member you will not be able to race that race. The cost is minimal so consider joining and having a chance for a Duffy or screaming eagle trophy.

Our shade structure is proceeding on schedule. The concrete has been cut for the support beams and the contractor is building the truss beams and will be installing them this month.

Meanwhile tragedy struck our retaining wall when an elderly female drag racer slammed into it. She is okay. However, the wall didn't fair so well. it did its job in protecting our facility. It is a mess and we are pursuing legal action for its re-construction. (Just an FYI in case you were wondering or even noticed.)

See you at the track!

John Ray, President
