Springfield, IL – The United States Pro Kart Series, powered by IAME USA East and MG Tires is pleased to announce its 2024 prize packages. An industry leader in offering substantial prize packages since the series launched in 2013, USPKS is proud to continue that tradition with another large offering of cash and prizes to be awarded during race weekends and at the 2024 year-end ceremony.

The two Pro classes – X30 Pro and Pro Shifter – are cash purse paying division at each event in 2024, totaling $21,000 per weekend. The flagship X30 Pro weekend purse will be increased, with the main event winner receiving $5000, $3500 for second place, and $2000 for third place finisher. The Pro Shifter class will be offered the same purse, which is a significant increase from 2023. Both classes will need a minimum of 20 entries to get half the purse, with the full purse paid out when the class features 30 drivers or more.

Back by popular demand will be tickets to the 2024 IAME Warrior Final (formerly the IAME International Final). This year’s event is being held at International Kartodromo Lucas Guerrero in Valencia, Spain on November 4-9. The 2024 IWF tickets will be awarded as prize options for Mini Swift, X30 Junior, and X30 Pro at the 2024 USPKS Awards Ceremony.

Year-end championship prizes for 2024 will be similar to previous years and include the USPKS Winner’s Circle packages, entries to select USPKS events, IAME USA Grand National Championship tickets, and of course the IAME Warrior Final tickets.

Add in the over $50,000 in contingency prizes that USPKS and its sponsors contribute throughout the season, the 2024 season will be another season of giving back to the racers.

The United States Pro Kart Series ‘Geo Cup’ Team Championship program has been revamped to make it both more lucrative, and easier for smaller teams to compete in. For 2024, the Geo Cup winner will receive a check for $5000 from USPKS. The Geo Cup program is offered at no cost to all teams. Each driver is responsible for designating what team they are part of when they register. More details on the 2024 Geo Cup program will be coming soon.

The 2024 USPKS weekend schedule will be similar to that of last year, featuring all eight classes competing together in order. There are no plans to compress the Pro classes into an ‘end-of-day’ format, nor to limit the drivers from competing in both Pro and regular classes. Racer surveys have indicated a strong desire by those in the KA Senior drivers to have opportunities to race against the occasional ‘interloper’ from the Pro divisions. The Pro Shifter and X30 Pro will be the final two classes in the rotation all season long, allowing for everyone to line the fences to watch the ‘best of the best’ do battle.
