Riverside, CA – The 2011 ProKart Challenge South Series started the season at the famed Adams Kart Track facility in Riverside, CA. SwedeTech customers came out in force to support this event and four customers went home with new hardware to add to the trophy case.
In the off season, standout Jr driver, Kiel Spaulding decided to make the jump into the senior TaG ranks. Kiel headed south with his SwedeTech Iame Parilla Leopard package to check out the senior competition. The senior drivers are more physical on the track, and it did not take Kiel very long to adapt. At the end of the weekend, Kiel had his first Sr. race out of the way, finished in the third podium spot, and added the first Sr. trophy to his collection.
In the S4 Stock Moto class, all three podium spots were powered by SwedeTech CR125 Stock Moto packages. Randy McKee had a solid weekend and would stand on the third step. Jimmy McNeil was the fastest driver on the track in the S4 class, but had to start in the back due to a DNF in a heat race. He drove hard to finish in the second spot. Former G1 participant, Robert Marks, had control of the whole race and took home his first S4 victory.
Next ProKart event for SwedeTech will be the 2011 Season Opener for the PCK North series, held at the Kinsmen Kart Club. See you there.
