Becoming a Reality
On September 27, 2005, the American Kart Racing Association became a reality with the hopes and desire in mind to return Karting to a level of excellence. With this excitement at hand we have pushed forward with a plan to create a new and exciting organization that will help drive the Sport and Industry forward. Our goal is to create and establish an organization to manage, promote, and develop a healthy environment that effectively and proactively supports the Karting Industry. We embrace with a firm commitment to build an Organization that drives toward the betterment and furtherance of the Sport of Karting and the Karting Industry.
The American Kart Racing Association, Inc. (AKRA) was formed to assist in the promotion of speedway kart racing. Founded with a basic class structure, simplified rules package, and an economical race schedule, the American Speedway Championship Series appeals to the “new” racer as well as the karters who have supported the industry for many years.
Having over 40 years of karting experience, owner Bill McCutcheon has taken a proactive, common sense approach to the industry with regard to rules & regulations, management of events, and assisting the karters with their racing program. As you navigate through this site, please contact Bill McCutcheon with any questions or concerns.
