What is K.R.O.C. ?
What is K.R.O.C.?
K.R.O.C. stands for Kart Race of Champions. The concept is simple; YOU race, YOU win, YOU are the champion, and YOU earn bragging rights.
Why are we developing K.R.O.C.? Over the last couple of years there has been many traveling series that have developed in the North East. Each of them has their great aspects and all have the karter in mind. This has created a dilemma for many karters. The dilemma is that they can’t compete at every race and need to decide where to race. This is where the concept of K.R.O.C. comes in. With K.R.O.C. there is no season point championship to race for, so the racer can come to the race as a one off and not have to worry about being able to make it to the next 4 to 5 events. We envision being able to award merchandise and awards at each K.R.O.C. race that would equal that of the year end awards banquet.
All three events will have the primary sponsor of ORGAIN, and will be presented by the New Jersey Sprint Series. Each event will be a little different and will have its own distinction.
For 2016 we are proud to announce three individual K.R.O.C. events. The dates for each event are as follows:
June 10-12 @ New Jersey Motorsports Park on Tempest
Friday practice w/Saturday and Sunday Final 1 and Final 2 that will determine the overall event Champion.
July 1-2 @ Raceway Park - FIRECRACKER 200
200 Lap Endurance Race that all Sr. Classes at Raceway Park will race together as one class fighting for the race win.
Tire/Fuel/Pit Stop strategy will all play a role in who wins this grueling 200 lap event.
The race will start in the daylight and end at night.
October 14-16 @ Raceway Park
The Fall Classic returns for year number two. Raceway Park Club points will be on the line over two days of racing. Where you will qualify for position each day and race heat races and features on both days, and an individual weekend champion will be crowned.
