ROCKWALL, TX (July 20, 2017) – The Texas ProKart Challenge found a gem in the panhandle area of Texas. The gem is the Amarillo Kart Circuit, sitting alongside the busy Interstate-40, waiting for karters to find it. P1 Promotions, who direct the Superkarts! USA regional program, did just that and added a trip for the 2017 championship schedule. Months of preparation to make the facility ready for the top drivers in the southwest to converge at AKC culminated on July 14-15 as the Texas PKC program hosted the fourth round of the title chase.

P1 Promotions made sure everyone who attended the Amarillo Kart Circuit enjoyed the weekend, on and off the track. A complimentary dinner, sponsored by Paintmor was provided for those in attendance Friday evening. That was followed by rides aboard the Superkarts! USA two-seater kart with SKUSA Pro Tour S1 point leader Jake French at the wheel. A full opening ceremony was conducted before the racing action began, including a color guard and driver parade. The racing around the replica of the Formula One Turkish Grand Prix Istanbul Park circuit was among the best all season, with drivers giving two thumbs up for the layout. Texas PKC continues to provide unique awards, with the ‘Amarillo Boot’ trophy given out to the top-three drivers in each category along with a TPKC cowboy hat for the winner.
