From our introductory classes, to the thrill of competitive go-kart racing, to bringing Nexgeneracer skills into internships, apprenticeships, higher education, and beyond, NXG programs are all about helping young people learn, grow, and achieve their potential.

NXG Youth Motorsports Academy

Designed for 11-15 year old boys and girls, NXG Youth Motorsports Academy offers five progressive levels of courses that use go-karts as an experiential teaching tool for driving, S.T.E.M. education—and life. Nexgeneracers practice decision-making, self-discipline, and other skills that help them gain confidence and understanding.

NXG’s instruction is aligned with core academic standards in math and science. Each course includes eight hours of hands-on training in the classroom and on the track. Classes meet on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the racing season [months?].

NXG Grand Prix

The Grand Prix is a competitive go-kart racing series for select Academy graduates (12-15 years of age) who wish to compete in a controlled environment. Six to eight rounds are contested seasonally, with a Driver of the Year and Champion recognized at the season finale. Events are often held in conjunction with the Academy classes so all Nexgeneracers and their families can experience the excitement of competitive karting.

To apply for the Grand Prix, students must graduate from the NXG Youth Motorsports Academy.


What comes after Nexgeneracing? Path-To-Pro is a racing industry development program for 16 – 21-year-old young adults—providing introductory opportunities for aspiring mechanics, engineers, managers, and drivers. We help foster career-oriented relationships between professional race teams and NXG graduates, including opportunities for internships and apprenticeships. We also help connect students with universities and technical schools for guidance in higher education and certification.

To apply for Path-To-Pro, students must graduate from the NXG Youth Motorsports Academy and compete in the Grand Prix.
