Q: How much does the Karting Scholarship Shoot-out cost?

A: Applying for the Shoot-out is FREE. If you are selected, the entry fee for the Shoot-out is $4,999. If you have not already completed your Basic 2-Day program, a seat in a Basic 2-Day is $3,499. Entrants are also responsible for their travel and lodging expenses.

Q: Are karts being used during the Shoot-out? Do I need to bring my kart?

A: No. We will be utilizing our fleet of Ray GR-RSC race cars for behind-the-wheel activities during the Shoot-out. This is a competition for karters who want to transition into cars, not a karting competition.

Q: Who is eligible for the Karting Scholarship Shoot-out?

To be considered for the Cooper Tires Karting Scholarship Shoot-out, karters must:

  1. Have no prior competitive auto “racing” experience in USF2000, F4 or above. If you have tested in USF2000 or F4, you are still eligible as long as you have not actually raced. (any questions if you have participated in racing that may disqualify you from the Shootout, please call)
  2. Be at least 12 years old.
  3. Successfully complete at least a Basic 2-Day program prior to the Shoot-out. Karters may participate in as many Lucas Oil School of Racing programs as they want.
  4. Submit an online application, along with your karting resume by August 31, 2018.

Q: When do I need to complete my Basic 2-Day?

A: Completion of the Basic 2-Day is not a factor used in selection for the Shoot-out, but it is a requirement in order for you to participate if you are. If you’ve already completed a Basic 2-Day, you are good to go, but you can also participate in additional Lucas Oil School of Racing programs and Race Series events to prepare.

Q: I completed a racing school with another organization, do I need to complete a Basic 2-Day to be eligible?

A: If you have already completed a racing school elsewhere, you can complete an Advanced 2-Day with Lucas Oil School of Racing to fulfill your eligibility requirement to participate in the Karting Shoot-out if selected.

Q: Once I complete my Basic 2-Day, can I come back for more seat time?

A: Yes. There is no limit to how much seat time you can have with Lucas Oil School of Racing or the Lucas Oil Formula Car Championship.

Q: Who will the Shoot-out judges be?

A: We are assembling an expert panel of judges from the worlds of karting and car racing. Judges will be announced ahead of the Shoot-out.
