The United States Pro Kart Series, powered by IAME USA East and MG Tires, is set to turn the calendar over to the 2024 season and announce the five venues that will host events during the 12th season of the program along with series updates.

The 2024 United States Pro Kart Series season will open on April 5-7 by visiting one of the most popular tracks of this past year – Speedsportz Racing Park in New Caney, Texas. Speedsportz was a new location for USPKS in 2023, producing amazing racing and earning high praise by everyone who attended. The 2024 visit, serving as the championship opener, is expected to be an even bigger event in terms of numbers and excitement thanks to the great hospitality the Rudolph family showed the USPKS family.

Round Two takes the USPKS program back to it’s unofficial home and what has become the “Gold Standard” in racetracks – Trackhouse Motorplex for the May 17-19 weekend. The Mooresville, North Carolina circuit never disappoints and provides amazing racing. ‘Race City USA’ provides the full NASCAR racing experience for those interested in touring the town and the Charlotte region.

The third event takes the series back to its roots and heads north to one of the original USPKS tracks. The 7/10-mile Mill-Rite Raceway, home of the Badger Kart Club, will host USPKS on June 28-30. The Dousman, Wisconsin facility is a classic “throwback track”, with tight corners and long straights providing lots of variety and challenge, all with a recently repaved track surface. USPKS is in the process of planning special events and activities to make this pilgrimage back to the ‘Badger State’ special for all.

Motorsports Country Club of Cincinnati facility has transitioned into one of the top karting facilities leading up to the 2023 season. The MCC Kart Plex made a great first impression for USPKS in its inaugural visit with the beautiful natural surroundings, fresh track surface, and remodeled paddock area. MCC continues to develop its property and venue, with USPKS excited about returning to Batavia, Ohio once again, scheduled for August 9-11.

The 2024 United States Pro Kart Series finale is set for another old favorite – the New Castle Motorsports Park. The 1-mile circuit in New Castle, Indiana has hosted hundreds of races over its 20-year history and continues to produce exciting racing with its long straightaways and wide sweeping corners that provide countless passing opportunities. The championship chases will be decided at NCMP on September 27-29 when the USPKS puts a bow on the 2024 season.

While the 2024 USPKS race program details will remain largely unchanged from the past season, there are a couple adjustments that racers have asked for that will be implemented.

The first change will be the removal of a drop race in the championship points calculations. The USPKS will follow the same structure found in all forms of professional motorsports, including all races toward the season-ending title chase. From the opening qualifying session at Speedsportz, up until the Sunday main events in New Castle, the goal is to have the championship races wide open.

A second adjustment for USPKS in 2024 is replacing the Last Chance Qualifier with a B Main for the KA100 Senior and KA100 Junior fields that exceed the track caps. The B Main will be a longer race, with the top-two finishers transferring to the Finals. This will allow those unable to qualify for the Finals the opportunity to receive more track time, and earning appropriate championship points for their efforts.
The United States Pro Kart Series believes these modifications to its program will help to intensify the championship chases, emphasize the results for each on-track session, and enhance racer value. The championship point structure format will continue to be analyzed over the coming weeks to ensure that the points distribution provides for the best racing experience for all. Adjustments, if any, to the system will be announced prior to the season starting.

An opportunity for competitors to reserve race numbers for the 2024 USPKS season will start on January 1. will continue to host series registration, including the number reservation program. Direct links to these will be on the homepage as they become available.
New for 2024, United States Pro Kart Series will invest in a text message communication system while trackside to provide timely, relevant information to racers. The limiting abilities of track announcements over the PA system is the focus of this new service to be added in 2024. While other programs and apps are available, series officials believe the SMS messaging service is the best option to connect directly to all racers while trackside. More information will be confirmed in the future, including how to sign up for the messaging system when competitors register, or for anyone that would like to be added to SMS messaging list.
