ST. LOUIS, MO – (November 15, 2017) – Margay Racing is excited to announce the first round of entries for the inaugural Ignite Dash at Daytona at WKA Daytona Kart Week.


Highlighting the entry list is a pair of emerging Indycar talents. The first to announce their entry is Andretti Autosport Indycar driver, Zach Veach. When asked about his return to karting, Veach stated, “I’m very excited to get back to my roots of spec karting before I take on the biggest year of my life, my first full season in IndyCar. A good portion of my karting career was spent on Margay chassis, so this will be a homecoming in more ways than one for me. Karting has a purity to it that is second to none, I’m really looking forward to getting back to that and to meet everyone at the track and enjoy what we all love.”

Gabby’s career highlights include 2015 Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year, 2015 Indycar Rookie of the Year, 2014 Indy Lights Champion, 2012 SKUSA Super Nationals TaG Senior champion and multiple karting titles. Gabby states, “I’m looking forward to being back in a kart at Daytona. It’s going to be a great challenge to go up against some of the top current karting talents and push myself to be fighting right up there with them. Can’t wait to get on track.”


Also competing in this year’s event will be 2017 USAC Karting Battle at the Brickyard Ignite Senior Champion, Charlotte Lalonde, hailing from Quebec, Canada. Representing St. Louis, Missouri is 2017 Gateway Kartplex Ignite Junior Champion and WKA Yamaha Junior standout, Evan Stamer. 2017 Gateway Kartplex Ignite Senior Champion, Ryan Bettenhausen and runner up Eric Loddeke will be making their return to Daytona after their impressive debut last season.

Ignite Dash at Daytona - WKA Daytona Kartweek December 27-30, 2017 PDF Print E-mail

The popular Margay Ignite program that featured a 46-kart field at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and 54 entries at the Rock Island Grand Prix earlier this year will take the green flag inside the World Center of Racing this December 27-30 as part of the WKA Manufacturers Cup Series.  Added as a local option class, Ignite Senior will utilize the same Ignite rules package racers around the Midwest are already familiar with.  With only a sprocket change to their existing Ignite kart, racers from around the country will be able to race inside the same facility that hosts the Super Bowl of racing – Daytona International Speedway.  A full field of Ignite K3 chassis equipped with Briggs 206 engines and Bridgestone YDStires will fight to etch their names in the history books alongside other legendary Daytona champions.

Don’t know what to ask Santa for this year?  We’ve got the perfect answer.  Full Arrive & Drive packages are available, and although they won’t quite fit in your stocking, would create an unforgettable racing vacation inside one of the world’s best known racing facilities.  Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, start polishing the helmet and get ready for fast, fun, fair kart racing at the world center of speed.  Arrive & Drive packages include a new Ignite K3 package, Briggs 206 engine, Bridgestone tires, full support staff, catered lunches, all race fuel and more.  Show up to the track and race – we will handle the rest!

The Ignite program is designed as an affordable way to go kart racing.  Consistent with this philosophy, Ignite competitors will not be required to purchase or run new tires all weekend.  You can practice, qualify and race on the same set of Bridgestone YDS tires.  Additionally, the WKA entry fee for the Ignite class has been set at $195.  Stop sitting in front of the fireplace sipping eggnog and get in the driver’s seat this year!
