The newest show to hit the EKN Radio Network is ‘Operation Grassroots’, a podcast geared solely on the foundation of the sport. The hub of the show will be discussion centered on the grassroots level of karting, from club racing to regional racing, all focused around the Briggs & Stratton 206 engine platform. Our #OperationGrassroots movement has been based around the Briggs powerplant, with the ultimate goals of bringing new people into the sport and igniting the spark of former racers to come back into what is the most economical form of karting.
The 2019 season is underway in northern California with the KPX Karting Championship already hosting the first of their six events on the year. The grassroots regional program has transitioned to become an International Kart Federation (IKF) series, welcoming Briggs & Stratton 206 competitors along with IAME KA100 racers. To bring you up to speed with everything related to the KPX program, Rob Howden talks with Kenny Manchester and Chris Rossi in this edition of the ‘Operation Grassroots’ powered by Briggs & Stratton Racing.
