TNT Kartways To Add Ignite Junior & Senior Classes
ST. LOUIS, MO – (December 13, 2016) – TNT Kartways in West Quincy, MO and Margay Racing LLC have announced that the Ignite Junior and Senior classes will be added to TNT’s class structure for 2017. Over the past three seasons, the Ignite spec program at the Gateway Kartplex has brought a significant number of new karters to the St. Louis area. In 2015, the Ignite Senior class made its debut at the Rock Island Grand Prix with 16 entries growing to 20 Ignite Seniors and 6 Ignite Juniors in 2016. TNT joins Mid-State Kart Club, Gateway Kartplex and the Rock Island Grand Prix to feature Ignite classes in 2017. Additional tracks and events are expected to be added to that list soon.
Creating the perfect entryway into the sport, Margay Racing has provided a proven spec chassis equipped with the popular Briggs and Stratton LO206 engine, creating an extremely competitive, affordable and reliable racing kart. Targeting new karters, Margay has worked to remove or minimize entry barriers to the sport and has created a platform where drivers can focus on developing their on-track skills while keeping costs and maintenance to a minimum.
Terry Traeder’s TNT Golf Car and Motorsports will function as the Quincy areas Ignite dealership. Traeder stated, “We’re extremely excited to add the Ignite classes to TNT in 2017. The simplicity of the class is exactly what today’s karting community needs to bring new people to the sport”. Margay owner Keith Freber added, “It’s great to be a part of the effort to rebuild Quincy’s karting community, there are so many great karters that cemented their ‘legend’ status by winning at TNT Kartways. The Traeder name is one of the greatest in the sport and the dedication shown by the Miles family to reinvigorate karting in the Quincy area is truly impressive. We are thrilled to be associated with both great karting families and hope that this program can help put Quincy back at the epicenter of karting where it belongs”.
