With just weeks remaining until the karts hit the track once again, the United States Pro Kart Series (USPKS) presented by MG Tires is pleased to announce its 2019 Prize Package. The 2018 season was a banner year for the series, with solid fields at every event. The competitors who campaigned the whole series were rewarded handily at the Championship Awards Ceremony held at the season finale last July. For 2019, competitors will have another crack at a prize package with an estimated value to exceed $80,000! In addition to a cash purse of $27,000, racers will compete for IAME International Final trips, IAME engine packages, the USPKS Winner’s Circle, multiple sets of MG Tires, and more.

For each event during the 2019 USPKS season, there will be a $4,500 cash purse awarded to the top-three overall weekend finishers in IAME X30 Pro, and another $4,500 cash purse to the top-three finishers in IAME X30 Junior. A $2,500 check to the winner in each category, with $1,250 going to the second-place finisher, and $750 to third. This is based on total points from the two main events on the weekend. In addition to the cash, the top-three will also get a set of MG tires. (Payouts will be made at the Sunday evening awards ceremony, and driver must be present to collect.)
