As the Briggs & Stratton 206 program continues to grow across the country, ROK Cup Promotions and their popular Florida Winter Tour program have added Junior and Senior classes to their series. In a deal inked last week, Briggs & Stratton 206 teams and drivers will have an opportunity to compete at the Hard Rock Stadium event in January and at the Ocala Gran Prix facility in March.
2019 Florida Winter Tour Briggs & Stratton 206 Schedule
- January 17-20 – Hard Rock Stadium – Miami Gardens, Florida
- March 21-24 – Ocala Gran Prix – Ocala, Florida
Two Briggs & Stratton 206 classes will be offered as follows:
- Briggs & Stratton 206 Junior – 12 to 15 years of age, 310lbs
- Briggs & Stratton 206 Senior – 15+ years of age, 365lbs
Event organizers said, “We had some good discussion on which classes we should run based on popularity of the 206 program and ultimately chose Junior and Senior. We understand the Senior and Masters programs are very strong in the Florida market, but we didn’t want to lock out any of the potential Junior drivers. To compensate and attract Masters drivers to compete with our program, we adjusted the weights in the Senior category from 350 to 365lbs.”
Briggs & Stratton has also stepped up to the plate to offer reduced entry fees for the Florida Winter Tour. Entry fees include one set of tires, five gallons of fuel as well as pit passes for driver and mechanic.
“David and his Briggs & Stratton 206 program are generously offering a $200.00 buy down for each and every entry, as the entry fees for all competitors will be reduced from $700.00 to $500.00,” concludes Potter.
Briggs & Stratton and ROK Cup Promotions are currently working on the prizes for the Florida Winter Tour with plans to announce in the very near future.
