New for 2022. The MSSS is a 5 race series between the Springridge Raceway in Jackson, Ms and Rebel Raceway in Saltillo, Ms.
The little track with big roots. Since 1976 the MKA has been producing Champions and Winners. Including 1978 World Karting Champion, Lake Speed who was the 1st ever American to be awarded the title of "World Champion" by the FIA in Le Mans France. Lake would find himself driving in NASCAR the following year!
The MKA is the first-ever track to introduce a PowerWheels Class for the UP AND COMING, youngest of drivers. Also offered, a Baby Kart, Cadet Kart, Jr, and Sr 2 and 4 cycles classes. We are happy to say, we have something for everyone.
Mississippi offers the perfect weather for just about year-round racing. Karting is as exciting to watch as it is to participate. We encourage you to join us. As a competitor or race fan. The track offers full visibility so you never miss the action.
Many upgrades and improvements are on the horizon, as we are already making plans for our 2022 race season. But, before we start on 2022 we still have a lot of work to do in 2021. Be sure to find us on Facebook @Mississippi Karters Association for all updates, classes and schedules.
