North Texas Karters Elects To Withdraw From Hosting The 2 And 4 Cycle Ikf Sprint Grand Nationals
In an unfortunate and abrupt chain of events, the International Kart Federation has learned the North Texas Karters club and track contracted to host the 2018 IKF Sprint Grand Nationals has elected to pass and forgo the opportunity. Per their most recent emergency board meeting, effectively immediately, the IKF Grand Nationals event scheduled for 27-30 June, 2018 is canceled. All entries collected will be refunded immediately by NTK and the event will be assessed and rescheduled to a different venue, at a later date.
“Canceling is something we just don’t do,” explained interim IKF stakeholder and SKUSA owner Tom Kutscher. “While this isn’t a SKUSA event, it’s no secret our companies our aligned philosophically based on the recent press highlighting our joint efforts. I’m truly empathetic to the racers, their travel plans, and the weight of this decision by the North Texas Karters. In 20+ years of doing SKUSA, we’ve never canceled an event in this manner, ever. I’m as shocked and disappointed as anyone to learn of their decision.”
