Texas ProKart Challenge Prepares for Night Races in Denton
Friday, 21 June 2013 12:55
The sun dropping over the horizon, smell of race fuel and tire rubber, lights shinning down on the pavement…night racing is among the most challenging and rewarding experiences in karting racing. For the competitors of the Texas ProKart Challenge regional series - presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King®/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys/Dallas Karting Complex - they will get their chance on June 27-29 at the popular North Texas Kartway in Denton, Texas. Rounds five and six of the 10-event championship program will be contested under the lights in a special Thursday through Saturday weekend for the United States Rotax Max Challenge and Superkarts! USA regional program.

“I’m really excited about next week,” stated Texas ProKart Challenge administrator Dave Pauly. “The people at the North Texas Karters are amazing to work with, and racing under the lights is something special. I know many, if not all of our racers are looking forward to the event, and we expect some drivers who have not yet raced with us this year just because of the night racing format. This will be a first for the series, and I expect it to become an annual trip for our program in the future.”

Several Drivers Extend Championship Lead at Second Stop for Can-Am Karting Challenge
Tuesday, 18 June 2013 11:29
The second event for the new Can-Am Karting Challenge took place at the historic Pat’s Acres Racing Complex in Canby, Oregon. The 7/10-mile course provided a unique challenge for the Rotax Max Challenge and Superkarts! USA competitors taking part in the third and fourth rounds of the series. A number of winners stepped up once again on the weekend, setting up for a solid run in the second half of the championship chase.

Former United States Rotax Max Challenge champion Joey Wimsett doubled up on his home turf in the HoleShot Drive Systems Rotax Senior Wimsett set the bar in qualifying, edging out race winner Jake Craig by a scant 94 thousandths to earn the pole position with fellow local drivers Phillip Arscott, Andrew Zimmer and point leader Stepanova Nekeel rounding out the fast five. The front of the field remained unchanged with Wimsett continuing to show the way through the Prefinal with the win and the same contenders in the hunt. Wimsett went wire-to-wire in the 20-lap Final for the victory, driving away to a two-second advantage. Arscott, who posted the fast lap of the race, was able to work past Craig early and held it to the checkered flag to earn the second step of the podium in his first series start. Nekeel ran to fourth with Zimmer holding fifth.

Pat's Acres Racing Complex to Welcome New Rotax Can-Am ProKart Challenge
Thursday, 06 June 2013 21:07
Following a successful weekend in British Columbia at the Greg Moore Raceway, the new Rotax Can-Am ProKart Challenge is embarking on its second event of the 2013 season. Returning back to the United States, the Rotax Max Challenge and Superkarts! USA regional program will visit the historic Pat’s Acres Racing Complex in Canby, Oregon. The tight confines of the 7/10-mile circuit have played host to some of the largest and most respected events in the past few decades, and will now welcome the Can-Am program to its list. The June 14-16 event will be presented by M Realty, a successful real estate business surrounding the Portland area.

Four tickets toward the 2013 Rotax Grand Finals are on the line in the championship chases in the top Rotax categories. The HoleShot Drive Systems Rotax Senior was the largest class of the opening weekend, and the Canby event is sure to see another big turnout. 2011 US Rotax Grand Nationals champion Stepanova Nekeel came away with one win and the championship lead. Canadian standout Chris Glover sits second with area hotshoe Andrew Zimmer sitting third. Luke Selliken won both main events in the CRG West Rotax Junior division at the first weekend, and has established a solid lead in the points. Coltin McCaughan leads the challengers with Florida driver Antoni Ptak sitting third in the standings. Joey Wimsett ran uncontested in the Maximum Velocity Performance DD2 category, but expects some challengers in Canby. Derek Wang was perfect in the Rolison Performance Group DD2 Masters class, outrunning Texan Brent Harper and Colorado driver Scott Falcone for both wins and the championship lead after one weekend.

Texas ProKart Challenge Gearing for Gulf Coast Kartway
Friday, 24 May 2013 14:04
The Texas ProKart Challenge regional series - presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King®/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys/Dallas Karting Complex is set to host its second event of the 2013 season. Teams and competitors of the Superkarts! USA and United States Rotax Max Challenge programs will travel to Katy, Texas to take on the Gulf Coast Kartway, a 7/10-mile course located just outside the metropolitan Houston area. The tight and challenging course is designed to test both drivers and equipment as the championship hunt reaches the next step toward the roughly $25,000 in prizes set to be awarded on the season.

The Superkarts! USA categories were filled with a number of returning drivers from last year’s season and many of those who are contenders at the Pro Tour level already. Miguel Lopez nearly swept the entire weekend in the Pole Position/DR Kart S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto division. Missing out on the fast lap in qualifying on Sunday in Dallas was his only blemish, securing a solid championship lead after the opening weekend over Ryan Kinnear and Cody Freeman. Jordon Musser did score a perfect weekend as he showed the way in the SwedeTech S4 Master Stock Moto category. Milton Rivera was runner-up both days, and leads the challengers looking to knock off Musser in Katy. Patricio O’Ward is the current point leader in the J&T Racing S5 Junior Stock Moto division, but commitments to formula car racing this summer will have him missing the rest of the season. This moves Sunday Dallas winner Nathan Adds as the top driver in the standings, with Raul Guzman and Derek Scott Jr. trailing. Bernardo Quintanilla was the lone competitor in the Blacken Insurance Group S3 Novice Stock Moto class at the opening weekend, but is expected to welcome more competitors in the upcoming rounds.
