Industry partners show support for international west coast winter series
The 15th season for Challenge of the Americas is just days away from kicking off at the Musselman Honda Circuit on the January 28-30 weekend. ROK Cup USA racers from all over the western portion of North America will converge at the popular Tucson, Arizona facility for three days of competition to begin the 2022 season. Coming off a record-setting year in 2021, the anticipation for another record season continues to build as the opening two rounds of the schedule inch closer.
Among the final procedures in place prior to the opening weekend for the Challenge includes locking up the class sponsors for the 2022 season. Ten different businesses from within the karting community are showing their support for Challenge of the Americas and its racers for the upcoming three events to decide the 2022 champions.
“Without the support of our class sponsors, it would be very difficult to provide the type of series we have here at the Challenge,” states FTK Promotions owner Andy Seesemann. “Many of the same supporters we have this year have been part of the 15-year journey of the Challenge, helping to build it up to what it is today. This year’s class sponsors are an essential part of what should be another record-breaking season.”

Micro Rok: Vemmekart LvPro Components
