About

Klotz Buckeye Karting Challenge Presented by Boss Pro-Karting

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. With the support of our racers, sponsors, and volunteers we have been able to do this.
 
With Klotz Synthetic Lubricants joining us as a title sponsor and expanding the series to five races while bringing in 3 new tracks, 2019 is shaping up to be a great year.
Hope to see you at the our next event!
