Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series

Briggs and Stratton’s history in racing dates back to the early 1930’s when visionaries, like Cannonball Baker, saw the need to manufacture Briggs powered scaled midgets to promote and grow racing at the grassroots level.

Today, Briggs & Stratton Racing is a full-time division focused solely on supporting the racing community through a line of engineered racing engines, each built by hand in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series allows us to promote, support and give back to our local racers.

A special thanks to RLV, whose commitment and support to the karting community includes running the nuts and bolts of this program. It is simply above and beyond by a standup company who shares our passion for the sport.

I would also like to thank Amsoil and our PowerSmart Inverter Generator group for their continued support. With every purchase of Briggs & Stratton 4T you are not only buying the BEST oil engineered for our race engines you are supporting this program. If you need a whisper quiet portable generator give our PowerSmart line-up a look! I own one and can personally say they are AWESOME!

Our last thanks is to our newest WRS partner, Sonic Tools USA. Sonic Tools offers a complete portfolio of hand tools, toolboxes, and storage systems. With a European design, world class manufacturing quality and prices on average that are 30% less than other leading brands Sonic tools should be on everyone’s birthday, wedding, and holiday wish lists! A couple of additional takeaways is their lifetime warranty, 24 hour tool replacement, AND their laser-engraved Sonic foam insert system.
