P1 Motorsports Prepares For IKF Nationals


“Team enters night race with high hopes”

June 19, 2010 – Looking to take the International Karting Federation (IKF) 2-Cycle Sprint Grand Nationals by storm, Position One Motorsports (POM) has put together a talented group of drivers to go after multiple race winning Duffies. With the event taking place at the Willow Springs International Raceway in Rosamond, California, Position One Motorsports has put together an eight driver team that will compete in more than a combined twenty-five classes in the hopes of scoring race wins and podiums.

“The Sprint Grand Nationals is a huge event for our team,” expressed Position One Motorsports owner Luis Martinez. “We look forward to this event and put hours upon hours of prep work into making sure we have everything perfect. We will have our team trailer there and will be offering trackside support to our current and potential customers.”

The Junior and Cadet categories will see two up-and-coming talents of the sport as Skylar Estrada and Juan Esteban Garcia look to dominate the under sixteen group of classes. Estrada will compete in his P1 Engines powered Avanti chassis in Junior 1 Comer, KPV 1, Junior 1 Heavy and KPV 1 Heavy as he looks to stand atop the podium. Fellow Junior driver Garcia will look to steer his Maddox chassis to the front of the pack in Junior Yamaha, KPV 2 Heavy, Junior 2 PRD and KPV 2.

With only two Junior drivers, POM will enter six pilots in the senior ranks as they will all enter multiple classes. Making a return to karting for the Grand Nationals will be Californian Kyle Longmore. Competing in the IAME Cup and TaG Senior, Longmore will utilize a Position One prepared Maddox kart as he competes against some of karting’s best regulars.

Another driver making a return to karting for the Grand Nationals will be Dylan Nobile. Looking to take advantage of his experience at Willow Springs, Nobile will enter the Senior PRD, IAME Cup, Senior PRD Heavy and TaG Senior classes. Just like his senior counterpart Longmore, Nobile will utilize the Maddox chassis as he hopes to provide the team with a shot at multiple race wins.

Karting regular and Position One Motorsports recent race winner Bobby Kelley will be back in action for the night event as he will do battle in Senior PRD and TaG Senior. Looking to have a shot at the victory, Kelley will only compete in two divisions as he will focus 100% of his attention in being the first to reach the checkered flag. Kelley will join 2010 teammate Nick Johnston in the Senior PRD division as the duo looks to work together and provide Position One Motorsports with the chance at a one – two finish in one of the most competitive divisions in IKF action. Johnston won’t stop there as he will also compete in KPV 3, Senior PRD Heavy and KPV 4 aboard his P1 Engines powered Maddox chassis.

Taking a break from his K&N West division car, Luis Martinez Jr. will be back behind the wheel of a Position one Motorsports Maddox kart as he will compete in Senior PRD Heavy. The final driver under the Position One Motorsports tent is senior driver Lloyd Mack Jr. Competing on a Maddox chassis, Mack will compete in six different classes including Senior PRD, Senior PRD Heavy, IAME Cup, TaG Senior, Senior Super Sportsman and Senior Super Sportsman Heavy.

Position One Motorsports Team Coordinator Colin McGinnis expressed, “We have a strong team and are looking for good results. The weeklong event should be a good one.”

The International Karting Federation 2-Cycle Sprint Grand Nationals will take place June 22 – 26th.
