Karting was a major focus during this year’s Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. The show’s opening day featured the Snap-on All-Stars Karting Classic event, which brought nearly 3000 non-karting spectators to the forefront of the sport on Thursday night. Riding off the tremendous momentum developed from the exciting race, the remaining two days of the show were filled with a great deal of interest around the numerous karting booths in the show.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6
The first day of the PRI Trade Show ended with many attendees exiting out of the Orange County Convention Center to the noise of karts running around a temporary circuit for the second annual Snap-on All-Stars Karting Classic, hosted by the Stars of Karting presented by IndyCar Series. Nearly 3000 people filled the grandstands and fence lines to see some of the best in motorsports and in karting do battle around three-tenths mile bullring under the lights. In the end, Wayne Taylor Racing Grand-Am Rolex Series driver Michael Valiante would win the main event over the Karters division race winner Gary Carlton.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5
After a successful debut last year in terrible stormy weather conditions, the second annual Snap-on All-Stars Karting Classic will take place this weekend. The Star of Karting presented by IndyCar Series partnered with the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) last year to host a one-day karting event in conjunction with the annual PRI Trade Show in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center. This year’s race has stepped up even more, bringing in more professional drivers paired with the top companies in the karting industry.
