LOCKPORT, NY (March 9, 2015) – The New York Dirt Kart Series, New York State’s premier karting series, officially announced its six race series schedule on Monday which will span from May through the month of September.

The 2015 NYDKS tour is set to open on Saturday, May 16 with action held at Allegany Memorial Speedway in Wellsville, NY.  The 1/10 mile, high banked facility, will set the tone for the state championship tour, which has already seen 60 pre-entry memberships filed for the coming season.

Brad Duhow and Kevin Root scored PRO victories at AMS one year ago, with top kart engine builder Matt Chavis snagging a win in Lite Clone.

Round two of the NYDKS will move north to Can Am Speedway on Saturday, June 20 in LaFargeville, NY.  Can Am held two popular events on the NYDKS tour last season, including the annual Fall Classic.

Root, Ryan Swartz, and Will Shields claimed top victories at Can Am one year ago with the northern Speedway again looking to attract the best in New York State karting in 2015.

An open series rain date will be set for Saturday, June 27 should either the AMS or Can Am dates be lost to weather.

The month of July will see the NYDKS move to western New York, as the series takes on Ransomville, NY’s Ransomville Speedway on Saturday, July 18.  The tour did not hit the ‘Little R’ in 2014, but plans are set for a big show in mid-July. 

A Ransomville rain date is also set for Sunday, July 19.

The next championship date for the NYDKS tour will be held at Starlite Speedway in Trumansburg, NY on Saturday, August 15.  One year ago both Kevin and Todd Root, Chavis, and Phil Young led the way in series events, with a total of 19 entries taking the green in Pro Clone.

Another rain date will be set for Sunday, August 16.

Following the four championship races on the schedule a non-point event will be held at Paradise Speedway on Saturday, September 5 in Geneva, NY with another open series rain date planned for Saturday, September 19.

The final event on the 2015 calendar will be the annual NYDKS Fall Classic, this year heading to Lime Rock Speedway in Leroy, NY on Saturday, September 26, serving as the 2015 NYDKS championship event.

During the first four point races of the season at AMS, Can Am, Ransomville, and Starlite – one championship drop will be allowed.  However, no drops will be allowed for the Fall Classic at Lime Rock, making the series finale a can’t miss event for all kart racers in the northeast.

Another tour rain date is set for Sunday, September 27.
