CRC CalSpeed 2020 Registration Open

After an amazing weekend in Sonoma for R2 of CRC with ROK Sonoma – Presented by Sanzaru we are pleased to announce that registration for our CalSpeed Karting event is now live on the MOM System here: https://www.mom-system.com/race/ftk-promotions1595269184/“Although it has been a challenging year, I have been pleased about the turnouts at our events in 2020. After breaking our all time entry record at what ended up being the Challenge of the Americas finale at CalSpeed, we followed it up with a California Rok Championship record in Phoenix last month with more than 100 entries. Our latest event in Sonoma almost matched that total, which was another great turnout at just shy of 100 drivers. I am looking forward to round 3 at CalSpeed, which should keep the momentum rolling for the CRC. With so many Covid-19 related uncertainties in regards to travel and different states’ restrictions, I am happy to give racers in the West a high quality event for those that want to stay close to home in August” – Andy Seesemann
