The 2019 Sprint GrandNationals
The ‘Duffy’ is the most prestigious trophy in grassroots kart racing, and once a year the International Kart Federation holds its annual IKF Sprint GrandNationals. The names who call themselves Duffy winners are a who’s who of motorsports and the distinction of being an IKF national champion solidifies any racer’s legacy in the sport.

Pat’s Acres Racing Complex (PARC) was built in the 1930’s by Pat Sabin as a spot for his employees to enjoy with their families. The Pavillion started out as a music hall that hosted big names like the Mama’s & Papa’s, Paul Revere & the Raiders and Eric Clapton. Then, in 1967, Harry Hegar installed a little over a half mile paved sprint track. Pat’s Acres has hosted some of the biggest karting races in North America through the 1990’s and early 2000’s which created the opportunity to add a ‘long track’ section, extending the full course to just under a mile long.
