American E-Kart Championship Returning To The Chicago Southland

By published September 15, 2023


Olympia Fields, Ill. – (September 14, 2023) The Chicago Southland is gearing up for the return of the American E-Kart Championship (AEKC) at Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events in Mokena on October 11-14, 2023.

Dubbed “Anyone’s Race” in an ESPN documentary, the fourth AEKC will bring 18 of the country’s best indoor e-kart racers to compete for the $10,000 first place prize.

Officially sanctioned by the World Karting Association (WKA), the same governing body for Formula 1, the AEKC series offers just about everyone the opportunity to be a champion racer. “The World Karting Association has always had a place for everyone in Karting, and that includes E-Karting. With that, the decision for WKA to sanction The American E-Karting Championship Powered by Monster Energy was a no-brainer,” says Kevin Williams, President of WKA.

The 18 finalists qualified for the Championship at one of 9 e-kart tracks across the country. Each competitor is hoping to become the next Jeff Gordon or Lewis Hamilton, both of whom caught their racing bug by karting.

“This is such a fun event, not only for participants, but for fans as well and we’re thrilled to welcome them back to Mokena and the Chicago Southland,” said Jim Garrett, President/CEO of the Chicago Southland Convention & Visitors Bureau.

“With all the wonderful dining and shopping options in Mokena, our partnership with the AEKC is a perfect match and the entire Village is excited to host this fantastic event,” added Village of Mokena President/Mayor Frank Fleischer.
