The 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.
