Published: Friday, August 11th, 2017

Vantage Karting Group (VKG) Entertainment is pleased to announce a title sponsor for their newly acquired go kart facility at Homestead-Miami Speedway, welcoming both American Medical Response (AMR) and MG Tires. The facility will be named, “AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires.”

“VKG Entertainment prides itself in its corporate partnerships,” said Justin Marks, Partner, VKG Entertainment.  “We’ve proven, through a long and successful partnership with GoPro at the Motorplex in North Carolina, that kart racing is a fertile ground for companies to promote their products and services.  Karters and racing enthusiasts are a loyal, intelligent, and fiercely passionate group of consumers and we feel this new partnership will further strengthen AMR’s position in motorsports in North America.  We look forward to crafting a popular and successful business at South Florida’s newest and most exciting motorsports destination: The AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires.”

“As the largest provider of emergency medical transportation services in the U.S. and a leader in pre-hospital care and treatment, AMR is proud to be a title sponsor for the track,” stated Ted Van Horne, AMR President and CEO. “We believe that supporting local events and venues is important to keep our communities healthy and vibrant.”

They offer a full spectrum of ground and air-based emergency medical transportation options. In addition, their teams have trained more than 235,000 people nationally in compression-only CPR, which provides people with a better chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest.

The MG Tires brand is one of the most successful and respected tire manufacturers in the karting industry and prides itself on providing the highest quality tire for their customers. MG Tires will be run exclusively at AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires Club Series in 2018, used on the rental kart fleet, and utilized for many major karting events at the track.

"The Miami area is one of the top travel destinations in the United States and MG Tires is proud to be part of such an exciting project, said Marcello Ventre, Owner, MG Tires.  “Our alignment with Justin and Eric has proven to be a very successful relationship and we look forward to helping them make this facility one of the best in the country."
