The Rotax MAX Challenge Series is comprised of 21 regions across North America. The top performers from every region will compete in seven different classes at Miller Motorsports Park to determine the series’ national champions.

In addition to championships, drivers in five of the seven classes will be competing for the right to advance to the Rotax MAX Challenge World Finals, which will take place in Valencia, Spain, in November.

Miller Motorsports Park previously hosted the Rotax MAX Challenge U.S. Grand Nationals in 2011.

"We are honored to have been chosen for a return visit," said MMP general manager John Larson. "Karting is an important component of what we do at Miller Motorsports Park and to be asked to host such a prestigious event for a second time is very humbling. We look forward to a great event showcasing the finest up-and-coming talent from across North America."

Practice sessions for the U.S. Nationals will take place on Thursday and Friday. Heat races are scheduled Saturday. Final races on Sunday. Admission is free on Thursday. Tickets for Friday, Saturday and Suns are $5 for adults. Children under 12 will be admitted free.
