The 2024 United States Pro Kart Series completed the Wisconsin Grand Prix on Sunday at the Mill-Rite Raceway. The historic facility in Dousman, WI – home of the Badger Kart Club – hosted the final day of action, which focused around the seven main events. Cooler temperatures rolled through the area, however, the skies cleared out once racing began. The intensity increased for the longer main events, where four new winners left the Badger State with victory, highlighted by a weekend sweep for Austin Garrison in the X30 Pro division.

It was a dramatic 25 laps for the Speed Concepts Racing X30 Pro category with championship leader Austin Garrison (SCR / Gillard) and three-time defending champion Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) on the front row.

Garrison led the opening lap however Alessandro de Tullio (Inter MS / Kart Republic) and Nicholas Terlecki (HDD / Tony Kart) worked past along with Zachary Claman DeMelo (Benik / Alonso Kart). The tires finally came up to temperature and Garrison began working back to the lead. By lap 10, he posted the fast lap of the race and then took over the lead from Terlecki. From there, Garrison was able to put in consistent laps and drive away to his first USPKS since New Castle 2023. Meanwhile, the fight for second continued with Terlecki and de Tullio as Norberg closed up in the closing laps. Making their way around the final lap, de Tullio was second with Terlecki on his bumper with Norberg trailing. As they made their way onto the front straight, de Tullio’s engine seized with Terlecki climbing over the back of his kart. He darted right and Norberg had nowhere to go. This sent the defending champion into the pillow wall and techpros, ending his race. Terlecki went off track but continued on to cross the line second.
