About

Buckeye Karting Challenge

In the fall of 2017 Scott Benton and Scott & Carson Smith realized the time was right to form a new regional racing series in Ohio. They came together and formed the Buckeye Karting Challenge. With the support of Boss Pro-Karting, some key volunteers, and the racing community, a three race series was put in place for 2018. Racers and sponsors jumped on board and the first season was a huge success.
 
Our goal from the beginning was to organize a highly competitive yet affordable series for the racers – one where they can take it to the next level. The support of our racers, sponsors, and volunteers have allowed us to make this series a truly great racing experience.
