RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. - The 2013 WKA West Super Series, sponsored by Bridgestone, RLV and Grand Products, opened this past weekend at the Prairie City Kart Club's All Star Karting near Prairie City, Calif., and boasted an impressive count of over 40 Clone-powered karts in the season opener.
The great turnout of Clones led officials to separate the division from one Clone class to a Clone 360# and a Clone Heavy.
The Clone class featured solid entry counts throughout last year's debut season for the WKA West Series and it appears the division will do nothing but grow throughout 2013.

Man Cup Komet Sportsman to run same tires Saturday, Sunday
CONCORD, N.C. - On February 4 WKA announced the Mazda / Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup Series Competition Committee and WKA Board of Trustees had approved the Komet Sportsman class to run both days for the remainder of the 2013 season.
The Saturday Komet Sportsman class will run a best five out of six races toward the national championship, while the Sunday Komet Sportsman class, since it was not run at Daytona, will run best four out of five races toward the national championship.
Staying consistent with past years when a class in the same age / engine category has been added after the season opener, it will be mandatory that entrants in the Sunday Komet Sportsman class run the same set of Bridgestone tires as in Saturday's Komet Sportsman program.
