RTX USA Group Partners with Southwest Regional Cup Series Adds RTX USA Group as Series Partner
“ROTAX 125 Evo engines legal for use in TAG classes”
August 20, 2023 – Continuing to grow the Southwest Regional Cup Series (SWRC), series officials are pleased to announce RTX USA Group as a new partner. Effective immediately, ROTAX 125 Evo engines will be legal for use in TAG Junior and TAG Senior.
“We are excited to welcome RTX USA GROUP, the Official ROTAX Karting distributor in the southern USA, and ROTAX as a series sponsor,” explained Jay Kleinheinz. “ROTAX has proven to be a strong program around the world and their Grand Finals event is one of the biggest and best karting races in the world.”
RTX USA Group is the ROTAX distributor for the Southern portion of the United States and the promoter for the growing ROTAX Winter Trophy. Utilizing its partnership with the SWRC, RTX USA GROUP is looking to expand its dealer network, increase the presence of the ROTAX brand in its geographical region, and support the karting within North America.
Kleinheinz continued, “We thank Julieta Fernandez and the complete group at RTX USA GROUP for their support and we look forward to welcoming ROTAX racers at our upcoming event at the Oklahoma Motorsports Complex in September and Dallas Karting Complex in October.”

Thank you to all the racers, families and fans that made Southwest Regional Cup Series races 3 & 4 at GCKI in Katy TX, a success!
The racing was great, all the classes were competitive. The KA100’s and LO206’s really put on a show with great bumper to bumper action!
All the proceeds from these races go directly back into operations and maintenance of our facility. The success of this series helps keep club racing alive and affordable in the Houston area.
Based on feedback from participants, and in an effort to keep the cost of running our series as low as possible, the purchase of new tires for all LO206 classes will now be optional rather than mandatory. The specification will remain Evinco Blue for all classes except TAG and Shifter which are Evinco Red. The same LO206 rules apply, the racer must run the same tires for both Saturday and Sunday, but they don’t have to be new when you start. If a racer chooses to run new Evinco Blue tires, they must have been purchased via the SWRC registration process. We will continue to offer both 7.10 and 6.0 rear tires (drivers choice).
We look forward to seeing everyone for rounds 5&6 at the fantastic OMC facility in Norman OK. September 1-3rd, and the season finally on the brand-new track at DKC October 13-15th!
Once again, Thank You for your support of the Southwest Regional Cup Series!!
