KOTM 2.0 thrills capacity crowd
KOTM 2.0 was one for the ages. With the massive success of KOTM 1.0 we were just holding on wondering if the magic could be recreated. We are proud to announce that 2.0 was even better and we are thinking 3.0 is going to be beyond epic. Many of us have hundreds of track days under our belts and we can honestly say the passion and excitement during the shootout under the lights is unmatched. Shown above is one of our favorite parts of the event: The four wide salute to the crowd featuring the 32 fastest and best autocross cars and drivers in the land.
Cars are nice but in the end, these events are about the people. In this case the people turned the tables and surprised our own Ryan Kirkwood with an awesome Field of Dreams sign. Ken Edwards spearheaded the sign project while Bob Bertelsen took care of the framework. This project left Ryan speechless and was immediately and prominently posted at the camping area.
KOTM 2.0 — Campfires, Food Trucks, and Live Music Round 2
We put a lot of emphasis on the PARK aspect of UMI Motorsports Park. The track is the focal point, or is it? We spent the evenings camping, grilling, sampling the local food trucks and of course bench racing. Entertainment was provided courtesy of Pennsylvania native and Nashville transplant Zac Grace. We think it’s safe to say you’ll see more camping, more food, more entertainment and who knows what else at KOTM 3.0.
Spectators and hillside parking
KOTM is unique in the fact spectators come from near and far to watch the shootout under the lights. This years crowd was exceptional and we were so honored to have packed stands and a two, sometimes three deep hillside. The fans were excited and engaged and we look forward to hosting them again at KOTM 3.0. Of special interest was this years VIP section where Viking Performance rolled out the red carpet for racers, teams and VIP fans. Thanks for the support everyone!
