DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Daytona KartWeek By Cometic Gasket on Dec. 28-30 will bring hundreds of karters from across the country to Daytona International Speedway during the holidays to participate in World Karting Association races on three different courses – the 3.56-mile road course, the Sprint track located in Turns 3 and 4 and the newly constructed quarter-mile dirt track outside Turns 1 and 2.

Many of today’s NASCAR stars made their first visits to DIS during Daytona KartWeek By Cometic Gasket including two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart, Brian Vickers, Bobby Labonte and Jamie McMurray.

For the third straight year, McMurray, who won the 2007 Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola and drives for Earnhardt Chip Ganassi Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, is expected to return to his racing roots during Daytona KartWeek By Cometic Gasket and compete in the George Kugler/Bridgestone Manufacturer’s Cup Series on the Sprint track.

Richard Petty Motorsports driver A.J. Allmendinger is expected to join McMurray in this year’s Daytona KartWeek By Cometic Gasket.
