CONCORD, N.C. - WKA and two fine partners, Michigan Kart Supply and MGM Chassis Co., have joined forces to bring the growingly popular Pro Gas Animal engine to the National Road Racing Series in 2014.
The Pro Gas Animal will debut at next month's WKA Road Race Championships at Daytona International Speedway and will run as a national class at all 2014 Road Race nationals.
Pro Gas Animal Final 1 and Final 2 will run Saturday and Sunday at Road Racing nationals (Sunday and Monday at Daytona) for a single class championship. Minimum weight will be 385 pounds, both days.
In addition to the new Pro Gas Animal classes, the gas Animal engine application will now also be legal in Animal Sprint 335/360/385/410 at a 15-pound weight break.
In an attempt to give 4-cycle road racers a wide array of options to run at a WKA national event, the new Pro Gas Animal class has been added to the Stock Honda, TaG Heavy race group. Each of the three 30-minute sprint race groups now includes at least one 4-cycle division: traditional alcohol Animal Sprint 335/360/385/410, Pro Gas Animal and Clone 360/385.
The Pro Gas Animal class was new to WKA and karting in 2013 with the division's implementation into the RLV Gold Cup Series. The class grew throughout the 2013 Gold Cup season and boasted a strong 25-kart field in the Gold Cup season closer in October at Carolina Motorsports Park.

IAME X30 ENGINE LEASE TO PURCHASE PROGRAM ANNOUNCED
Bushnell, Fla. - WKA National Road Racing Series title sponsor and Manufacturers Cup class sponsor TS Racing is offering an X30 lease / purchase program.
TS Racing, an IAME engine importer, has announced they are offering an X30 engine lease/purchase program for this coming season.
Starting with the WKA Manufacturers Cup event this December in Daytona Beach, TS Racing is making it easy and affordable for drivers to try the X30 TaG engine. The Parilla X30 by IAME is WKA approved for TaG Senior, TaG Masters, Parilla Senior and the new Parilla Junior classes.
The program is designed to give drivers a chance to race the most competitive engine in the class and apply the lease costs to the purchase. X30 engine leases are available for $400 per weekend. Drivers that would like to purchase their lease engine after the first weekend, the entire lease price of $400 will be applied to the used engine price of an X30. You can continue to lease an engine and apply $600 after the second rental or $750 after the third rental to the used engine price of an X30.
The TS Racing engine-leasing program was instituted at last year's Florida Winter Tour with great success. The new lease/purchase program will also apply to the 2014 FWT.
TS Racing will not only have lease engines available but a trained engine technician will attend the WKA Manufacturers Cup and Florida Winter Tour events to assist all IAME Parilla customers.
As the importer of the X30 engine, TS Racing is in a unique position to make this offer to the racers. In addition to the X30, TS Racing is a stocking distributor for Leopard engines and parts. They now can service dealers, engine builders as well as individual kart racers. For more information on the TS Racing, IAME dealer program or engine leasing, contact them at 352-793-9600.
