The “Thundering Herd” of the Desoto Champ Kart Series will make it’s seventh appearance of 2008 at Desoto Super Speedway in Bradenton, on Saturday night, September 6.
A video of the series most recent race at DSS (August 16) can be viewed at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L081tcdmF9k&fmt=18
The series would like to welcome any interested or curious folks to come into the pit area, to meet our drivers and crews. This series has some of the friendliest racers and crew anywhere.

Competition: In the last nineteen series events, FOURTEEN different winners have triumphed!
Stars: Think this is just a “go kart” series…?? Already this season, 2007 TBARA Sprint Car Series champion Troy Decaire has participated once (finishing second and third), along with FASCAR Truck driver Barry Bartlett (finished seventh), and 2008 DSS Late Model Points Leader Dustin Chisholm (finishing fourth).
And, in addition to the normal cash payout in the feature (for at least the top five drivers), several additional awards have been posted!
GECKER MOTORSPORTS has posted the following award for the feature winner on September 6:
? Free Clutch Rebuild Labor (any make), parts extra
And, if the feature winner on September 6 has VEGA TIRES (any compound) on both the right front and right rear, and has a VEGA TIRES decal on his/her kart, he/she will win one free VEGA TIRE (800)!! This is in addition to the cash payout, trophy and other contingencies that the feature winner will also get for that night!! A racer may use any left side tires that he/she wants, and still collect the award. Thanks to http://www.TSRacing.com for their support!
