About this event
A brand new venue awaits USPKS racers for Round #2 of the 2023 USPKS Championship, presented by MG Tires and IAME USA East! Speedsportz Racing Park, located just outside Houston, TX is the second stop on the tour, and one you definitely won't want to miss.
We look forward to seeing you at Speedsportz Racing Park, starting on Thursday April 27, 2023 for the 2nd Round of the 2023 USPKS championship.
Registration will open at the track at Noon on Thursday, April 27th for entry check-in and packet pickup at the Series Trailer.
All drivers must be members and have a valid USPKS Membership. Memberships are valid for 12 months. Please visit uspks.com for full age requirements for each class, as well as the Competition Rules. Memberships are required to complete this online entry.
The Paddock at SRP closes each night and everyone will need to vacate the pit area by 9PM nightly. Please plan your schedule accordingly. The Best Western Premier Executive Residency Grand Texas Hotel is located within walking distance of the track. USPKS has negotiated a group rate for our racers that can be redeemed using this link.

For the #TexasGP, the KZ/Pro Shifter class will not be required to use the push back bumper system. This is a test, as a result of racer request. As of right now, this is for the Texas event only.
Pit Passes are not included in the entry fee and are purchased at the gate, and must be signed for by the individual.
Cash, check, credit/debit cards accepted for payment.
Hot grid passes are $75, Regular Event passes are $50, Single day passes are $25. Under 5 are free.
Rental Transponders: AMB Rental transponders are $50 for the event. You can rent them when you register online or at the track. By renting a transponder, you agree to return the transponder by the end of the event or to pay a $500 replacement fee. (Transponders are mounted on the driver's left sidepod, no exceptions.)
Driver and Kart Profiles and Transponders
Your vehicle profile(s) in your MSR "garage" are where the kart brand/type and transponder comes from. If you register the same "vehicle" in 2 different classes, you will be using the same transponder in both classes, as they are tied to the vehicle. To use 2 different transponders, you need to create 2 different "vehicles" in your garage. For example, create a X30 kart and a KA Kart to use to separate transponders. Using the correct vehicle information will help make sure that your stats online are correct. You may use the same transponder in 2 classes, but you are responsible for moving them back and forth. If you want your driver's name and hometown information to show up correctly, please put them in your profile correctly.

- All entry fees include Official Friday practice.
- If you chose not to use a rental transponder, we will need your transponder number on file before your entry packet is released. Please either enter it now, or bring it to Registration, or you will not receive your packet.
- Hot Grid and Pit passes are sold at the track only, and are purchased at the gate, starting on Thursday. Drivers, mechanics, and others wishing to have grid/tech area access, must purchase an event Hot Grid Pass for $75. Those not requiring grid access may purchase a regular pit pass for $55/event, or $25/day. Everyone entering the grounds must have a pit pass.
- All pit space for this event is reserved. Due to the difficulty in collecting payments on pit space, they must now be paid for up front, prior to confirmation of the reservation. If you don't include payment information on your form, you will be emailed an invoice to pay. The reservation will not be held unless the space is paid. Thank you. Click here to reserve your pit space.
- There is a RV park directly adjacent to the SpeedSportz paddock area, and all RV reservations are directly thru them only. There are no RVs or Campers (except toyhaulers that are actively being pitted out of) allowed in the paddock for this event. There is a short walk or golf cart ride out of the RV park driveway and over to the race track driveway. I would recommend getting a golf cart if you can. Alan at SRP is looking into cart rentals. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a rental golf cart. Please make your RV reservations by contacting Grand Texas RV Resort at (832)543-5547. More info at www.grandtxrv.com
- Cars and tow vehicles will be parked in a vehicle parking lot and not in the pit area. If you are attending other events before or after the USPKS event and want to coordinate your pit space, you need to contact Alan Rudolph at email@example.com or by calling 602.717.7069 after making your pit reservation with USPKS.
- Drivers who win a purse must attend the Money Presentation ceremony Sunday afternoon. Failure to attend will result in forfeiture of any prize money. Plan your schedule accordingly. Prize winners must also complete a tax information form and provide a Social Security Number, and will receive a US tax form 1099. Only the winning driver will receive any prize money, as it is not transferable. Anyone not providing information will have the prize money applied as a credit to their Motorsportsreg account.
