WEEDSPORT, NY (May 12, 2021) – The Slack Karts Super Kart Series at Weedsport Kartway will take the green flag on Sunday, May 23, as the 3rd annual Kart Cup will take to The Short Port.

Slack Karts will be the premier partner of this year’s Super Kart Series at Weedsport Kartway, presenting a brand new 2022 Slack Pursuit Chassis to one lucky Weedsport Kartway member at season’s end.
The new kart will be presented to a Kartway member that attends all four events on the Super Kart Series trail, which is slated for Sunday, May 23, Sunday, September 19 and October 16-17.
The winner will be determined by a random draw of all members that have perfect attendance at the conclusion of Octoberfest Weekend.
