This year's Kart Industry Roundtable announced and is entitled "The New Normal - Evolve Or Face Extinction In A Very Different World" and will be held on Friday, February 26, 2010 at The Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois starting at 9AM. (One day prior to the opening of Kart Expo.)

This year's edition of the industry gathering will be anchored by well-known kart-racing businessman Tony Stewart, owner and developer of Chicago Indoor Racing. Although he is an indoor specialist the roundtable will tackle industry-wide issues and Stewart is setting the tone.

Stewart said, "The roundtable will be devoted to all aspects of karting as we cope with this new economic landscape. The title says it all, The New Normal, which means that all areas of karting from track management, series management to kart shops and teams must come to terms with the knowledge that this economic environment is not going to change anytime soon, everyone needs to adjust if they don't want to fail."

The Roundtable Members include some of the industry's best known experts and at the time include:
Tony Stewart, Owner, Chicago Indoor Racing
John Doonan, Director of Motorsports of MAZDASPEED
Garry Lobaugh, Owner MRP Motorsport & NKN Columnist
Tony Granata, WKA Trustee & Kart Racer
Jamie Sieracki, Franklin Motorsports
Jim Perry, Owner CKT Racing Engines
Chris Berg, Karter moving to F2000 and e-KMI Columnist
Curt Paluzzi, Editor/Publisher, National Kart News
Marc Miller (Moderator), MMP Design
Additional panel members will be announced before Christmas.

Stewart said, "We aren't aiming to have all the answers. Our intention is to work together to develop suggestions and ideas so the audience can leave with a new perspective on growing their business in the next very difficult years."

Attendance at the roundtable is FREE to anyone interested in the business of karting. No reservations necessary.
