Pulp Racing Drivers Dominate SuperNats X S4 Class
Sunday, 10 December 2006 16:00

LAS VEGAS, NV, NOVEMBER 13, 2006:  Pulp Racing drivers, Doug Hayashi, Jeff Littrell, and Wayne Mello put on a strong showing throughout the Superkarts USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals X, with Littrell crowned as the Spec Honda Heavy (S4) class National Champion at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, November 13th after his dominating win in the Main Event.

The Pulp Racing team contested the highly popular and growing Spec Honda Heavy class, filled with 35 entrants from around the country.  To quote Jeff Franz of KartSport Magazine:

“The SKUSA SuperNationals is quite simply the biggest and most prestigious event in North American karting.  Since its inception in 1997, this race has always drawn the absolute finest talent from across the continent.  It has become an end-of-season Las Vegas tradition, as 300 drivers make the pilgrimage to Sin City to close out a year of racing.  […]the SuperNationals is the Indianapolis 500 of karting.  There is no other North American event that even comes close.”

With Tony Kart Krypton/KR chassis from 2Wild Karting and engines from Darcy DeCoste Racing, the three drivers from Pulp Racing were fast right out of the trailer. Littrell and Hayashi topped the time sheets in Thursday practice and Friday warm-up. In Friday’s qualifying session, Littrell qualified on pole, Hayashi 6th, and Mello 10th

Littrell dominated the Heat Races from pole, winning two of the three, setting fast lap in every race, and earning pole position for the Main Event. Hayashi’s solid 5th, 9th, and 7th place finishes in the heats put him 6th on the grid for the Main Event, with Mello behind him in 8th

The Main Event was textbook perfect for Littrell, leading from green to checkered and setting fast lap in the process. Hayashi had a shot at the podium but suffered a heartbreaking carburetor failure. Mello fought hard for a 5th place finish, and the last podium position. Full results are available at MyLaps.Com. On the podium after his win, Littrell was quoted as saying “I want to thank 2Wild, DDR, and my wife Sunni for their support but I really want to acknowledge the Pulp Racing crew for providing friendship and logistical support all year around. Pulp Racing makes karting fun.”

Pulp Racing is now looking forward to another year of hardcore karting in the 2007 SKUSA ProKart Challenge Series, kicking off at Moran Raceway on January 6th.
