What is an Ignite Major?

The Ignite Major races utilize the same components and rules used throughout the Ignite platform with one key difference – the competition. The Major events bring all of the best Ignite racers from around the world to compete during a single weekend. Local champions, regional winners, national standouts and professional drivers – all on track together and all on equal equipment.


SKUSA Winter Series

Round 1: January 10-12 & Round 2: February 7-9

Quincy Grand Prix

June 13-14, 2020

The Quincy Grand Prix returned in 2018 after an extended absence. The once iconic race has been reborn and brought back to its former glory. One of the only kart races in the country that draws thousands of spectators make this a must for racers looking for an event style atmosphere at the coolest “track” in the country.



Battle at the Brickyard

July 23-25, 2020

There is perhaps no kart race in the country that garnishes quite the nostalgia that The Battle at the Brickyard does. For good reason too. Who hasn’t dreamed of turning laps at the Brickyard? This is your chance to etch your name amongst racing legends such as Mario Andretti, AJ Foyt and Tony Stewart as a winner at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!



Elkhart Grand Prix

August 14-15, 2020

Another reborn street race at the hands of USAC Karting, the Elkhart Grand Prix made it’s return in 2017. One of the most unique street race layouts makes this a must visit event for sprint racers. Thousands of fans, concert stages and two bridges make this event as unique as they come – a must visit!



Rock Island Grand Prix

September 4-6, 2020

The Rock Island Grand Prix is one of the premier events in karting. It’s not only a great race, it’s a gathering…a pillar of the great karting events, its one not to be missed and the Ignite Shootout is the perfect opportunity for those from around the country and from outside of the country to ‘fly & drive’ and compete in this labor day weekend classic.
