02.09.2016 – Welage Leads Winter Cup Winners at Jax

CONCORD, NC – The second round of the inaugural WKA Winter Cup Program could not have been labeled more precisely, as bone chilling temperatures, accompanied by occasional rain, challenged the efforts of driver and crew all weekend at 103rd Street Sports Complex in Jacksonville, Florida. However, the end result was a success witnessed by the large crowd of spectators in attendance.

The February Winter Cup also marked the return of 2 Cycle racing to Jacksonville under the WKA umbrella for the first time in many years. With 103rd Street serving for many years as THE Stop for 2 cycle racers back in the day during Daytona KartWeek, the eventual construction of a sprint track in the infield at Daytona International Speedway, enabled all three parts of the Daytona KartWeek puzzle to fit in together in one place, thus ending a long run down the 1,000 foot backstretch for quite a while.

The February return to 103rd brought back memories for many in the 2-cycle world. And when the dust settled, a driver who was oblivious to racing at Jax the last time 2 cycles were there, ended up on the top shelf of the podium twice for the weekend, as Jason Welage scored the overall wins in the Allison Racing Engines Yamaha Sportsman class, as well as the IAME USA East Pro Swift Sportsman categories.

Other overall winners for the weekend included Jason Yarbrough, leading again another very strong contingent of Briggs & Stratton LO206 Senior class competition, Brent Crews in the CRPRACING.COM Mini Swift class, and Lance Fenderson the top dog in the Woltjer Racing Engines Pro IAME Junior class. Bradon Eves took top honors for the weekend in the KARTSPORT North America Pro IAME Senior division, while Karsyn Walters took the top spot on the podium in the Water for a Cause Kid Kart class. And Jimmy Cole Jackson topped all comers in the Briggs & Stratton LO206 Junior class.

For Welage, consistency would be the name of the game on Day 1, as the 3 time Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup Champion from 2015 would shadow Kaden Wharff across the stripe in the Yamaha Sportsman Class. For Wharff, as well as anyone else that became acquainted with the 1,000 foot backstretch at 103rd Street, being in the right place on the right lap is everything, especially in Jacksonville, as Wharff laid claim to the win. The top 2 were chased across the stripe by Annie Rhule, Eli Trull, and Rylee Engel for the top 5, with Welage taking the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time Award.

Welage would again find second as the spot in the IAME USA East Pro Swift Sportsman Class as Connor Ferris took the victory on Saturday, with Robert Noaker III, Annie Rhule, and Ashton Chilton completing the top 5. Welage again would be the recipient of the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time Award.

In other Saturday action, Brent Crews fended off the efforts of Sebastian Ng for the win in the CRPRACING.COM Mini Swift class. Caleb Gafrarar rode home third on Day 1, with Danny Dyszelski and Nicholas Terlecki completing the top 5. Eli Trull, the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time winner, rode home 6th.

For the second race in a row, the Allison Racing Engines Pro IAME Junior class did not disappoint, as Lance Fenderson turned back the efforts of Ty Gibbs for the win. Fenderson was also the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time winner. Chasing the top 2 across the line were Vincenzo Sarracino, Alex Bertagnoli, and Pauley Massimino.

Coming to Jacksonville, many in attendance in the Briggs & Stratton Racing LO206 Senior class knew Corey Towles would be tough to fend off, following a stellar Daytona performance. But Jason Yarbrough was one of those who dug in the trenches a little deeper, and was able to secure the Day 1 win over Towles, with Michael Clark, Matt Mayes, and Patrick O’Neal rounding out the top 5. Towles was able to secure the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time Award on Saturday.

If your name was Bradon or Brandon, the front was the place to be on Saturday in the KartSport North America Pro IAME Senior class, as Bradon Eves held back the efforts of Brandon Jarsocrak and Brandon Lemke for the top honors. Calvin Ming and Comet Kart Sales Fast Timer Jonathan Kotyk completed the top 5.

For the second time in 2 races, competitors in the Water for a Cause Kid Kart Class had to be on Cloud Nine. First the chance to run at Daytona, then the long backstretch at Jacksonville, which made the most minimal speed of a racing weekend seem like 100 mph. And for CJ Bowman on Day 1, that was the case, as the young driver scored the win over Comet Kart Sales Fast Timer Karsyn Walters, with Ayrton Grimm and Dusty Larson following closely behind.

Cody Hall successfully wrapped up Day1 action, taking the highly competitive Briggs and Stratton Racing Junior LO206 Class, as one of the top young Gold Cup standouts bested fellow Gold Cupper Mark Steube, Ryan Rogers, Jimmy Cole Jackson, and Nash Duyn. Steube took the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time award.

Sundays action found another recent Kid Kart graduate in the form of Caleb Gafrarar scoring his first career win in the crpracing.com Mini Swift class. To understand and appreciate the transition of these drivers from the beginning level to Mini Swift, you have to see it for yourself, as the mere difference in speed alone makes this an impressive step up to the next national level class. Chasing Gafrarar across the stripe was Sebastian Ng, followed by Comet Kart Sales Fast Time winner Brent Crews, Sam Corry, and Nicholas Terlecki.

Lance Fenderson roared back on Day 2, not only sweeping the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time honors, but also the Allison Racing Engines Pro IAME Junior class, again being chased by Ty Gibbs, with Pauley Massimino, Vincenzo Sarracino, and Alex Bertagnoli making up the top 5. With the win, Fenderson became the only driver for the weekend who was able to sweep his class and take the Checkered Motorsports Trophy, signifying Lance as the overall class winner for the weekend.

For Jason Welage, his runner up fortunes would change in the Woltjer Racing Engines Yamaha Sportsman class on Day 2, as he checked in for his first win of the weekend, topping Robert Noaker III, Rylee Engel, Comet Kart Sales Fast Timer Kaden Wharff, and Eli Trull for the Top 5.

Welage would back that up, also taking the IAME USA East Pro Swift Sportsman class, topping Noaker, Ferris, Wharff, and Rhule.

Not to be denied at his home track for a national class win, Sean Meier turned back the field Sunday, taking the finale for the Briggs and Stratton LO206 Senior drivers, topping Matt Mayes, Corey Towles, Jason Yarbrough, and Mike Greiner. Meier also claimed the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time award for the day as well.

Returning to victory lane as well was former WKA National Champion Mike Giessen, laying claim to the Sunday portion of the KartSport North America Pro IAME Senior class, topping the 3 B’S, with Brandon Jarsocrak, Saturday winner Bradon Eves, Brandon Lemke, and Derek Dignan for the top 5. Dignan’s top 5 run was quite the comeback, following a grinding crash on Saturday in which his tie rod broke, sending him crashing through safety barriers, thus placing a serious crimp in his ride as well. Dignan was fine. Jarsocrack took the top pole honors for the class.

On the heels of a second place run the day prior, Karsyn Walters roared back to take the Comet Kart Sales Fast Time award, as well as the Day #2 win in the Water for a Cause Kid Kart class, topping Ayrton Grimm, James Newell, Dusty Larson, and Samuel Newell.

The finale for the weekend found Jimmy Cole Jackson taking the Briggs and Stratton LO206 Junior class finale, besting Nash Duyn, Cade Frazier, Mark Steube, and Andrew Willis, with Frazier taking the Fast Time honors.

All overall winners for the weekend received a special Overall Winners Cup for the weekend, courtesy of Checkered Motorsports.

With 2 events in the books, the series will wrap up its inaugural season at GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, North Carolina March 4-6, where the first ever WKA Winter Cup Champions will be crowned.

“ We are excited to offer support to the new WKA Winter Cup program by offering 5 of their champions a free race entry into our inaugural IAME Atlantic Challenge with Briggs and Stratton”, stated Go Pro Motorplex partner Eric Jones. Jones also noted that several major teams have already committed to attending the August event since the announcement was made just a few days ago.

Additionally, the weekends event has also been very strategically placed on an off weekend for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. With the Motorplex right in the heart of NASCAR Race Shops in Mooresville, combined with Sprint Cup drivers looking for an opportunity to race anywhere, anytime, the Go Pro staff are currently working on getting a few of the stars of NASCAR to stop by and participate on that weekend.

01.21.2016 – WKA Mfg Cup Names Red Line as Official Spec Oil

CONCORD, NC – World Karting Association Officials are proud to announce the designation of Red Line Synthetic Oil as the Sole Official Spec Oil provider for the Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup Series, effective immediately.

Since 1979, Red Line Synthetic Oil has grown to manufacture more than 100 quality products, including Two-Stroke and Four-Stroke karting oils, as well as many other products, including gear oil and pre-mixed coolant for karts, motorcycles and ATVs, as well as motor oil, ATF, gear oil, assembly lube, fuel additives and WaterWetter™ coolant additive for automotive, powersports and industrial markets.

For the last several years, Red Line has been a participant in the WKA Manufacturers Cup Spec Oil program, joining several other companies, providing Two-Stroke oils for many Two-Cycle national competitors.

There are two eligible products for the WKA Mfg Cup program: Red Line Two-Stroke Racing Oil (#40603 for 16oz, #40605 for gallons) and Two-Stroke Kart Oil (#40403 for 16oz, #40405 for gallons) Both products are identical in formulation and are available from Red Line’s large distribution network of karting and traditional distributors, including Dreamworks/Franklin,  Comet, TS Racing, Cameron Karting, CKT Engines and many local shops. Many motorcycle resources (Cycle Gear, Tucker Rocky, and WPS) and automotive retailers (Jegs, Summit and Amazon) also carry the Two-Stroke Racing Oil.

Mixing Red Line’s product with Sunoco Fuel, the official fuel for World Karting, trims down the variables to create a specific and consistent baseline for tech officials to reference.

The implementation of Red Line as the official sole spec oil for the Mfg Cup Series, a two-year agreement, commenced at the Margay Sprint Championships December 27-30 at Daytona International Speedway for the latest edition of Daytona KartWeek. While the WKA National Road Race Series is also part of a spec oil program, that series will continue business as usual with competitors following the Spec Oil Program guidelines that have been in use all of 2015.

01.20.2016 – CKI’s 16 Daytona wins pace KartWeek Road Race Field

CONCORD, NC – While 11 wins by different chassis’s in 20 races on the Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup Series was a pretty awesome start to a year, there were also at least 13 different chassis that scored a win for the first national of the year at Daytona KartWeek for the Dunlop/Xeramic National Road Race Series presented by Russell Karting, led by a familiar face, CKI.

Officially known as Competition Karting Incorporated, located in Welcome, North Carolina, the small shop, while located in the neighborhood with the Sprint Cup Series mega operation which is Richard Childress Racing, came to life yet again as the giant in the Road Race karting industry in its own right, netting 16 victories as part of those 13 different chassis companies, in the process, again taking a huge lead on the first lap in a race for constructors supremacy.

Led by Midwesterner Rick Fulks who pulled off wins in the Tru Stripe sponsored B Stock Class, as well as both days in 100cc Controlled competition, the CKI logos were flying in the breeze, sometimes at a clip of well over 140 mph on the backstretch of the World Center of Racing. Sharing in the triple success of Fulks was southerner Blake Beattie, taking the Hoosier Racing Tire Animal Lite class, as well as both days in the Clone LO206 Lite competition.

With 6 of the 16 wins shared by 2 drivers, Tim Linthicum added his name as a 2 time CKI winner, taking the CKI Yamaha Sportsman Medium Class, as well as the Yamaha Sportsman Heavy division of racing, giving 3 drivers half the CKI wins at Daytona.

And while the lead is good coming off the line, another chassis emerged as a solid Daytona contender, as Hatcher Chassis impressively scored 4 wins in the season opener, led by Ryan Hatcher, a winner in the Foster 4J Ranch sponsored Yamaha Medium class. Hatcher also scored a win in the Kion/Linde Forklifts sponsored Yamaha Heavy class, while fellow Hatcher drivers John Brown and Rusty Benson scored the other 2 wins, both in the respective Matthai Material Handling 100cc Piston Port Classes.

MGM, the 2014 Manufacturers Constructor Champion, registered 2 wins with Stephen Wheatley responsible for both, the Hoosier Racing Tire Animal Lite class, as well as Animal Medium.

Brian Wilhelm led the charge for Owl Chassis, taking the win in the Rev Clean sponsored Formula 125 class, while Mitch White claimed the other victory in The Agile Group sponsored Unlimited class.

Margay checked in for 2 wins for the week, with Milo Schoonover taking the Millers Dynotime Racing Formula 100 class, while Adam Trumbley took the other in WKA Sprint.

The only other chassis to register 2 wins over the Daytona KartWeek timeframe was Velocity, with wins by DJ Hoelzie in both Sprint 125 Shifter events.

Single wins were claimed by:

Intrepid: Stephen Bassham: WT Racing Leopard Sprint

Arrow: Jamey Brown: WT Racing Leopard Sprint

Dominator: Ron Miller: The Agile Group Unlimited

Phantom: Otto Vollmerhausen: WKA Sprint

01.20.2016 – Gold Cup Series Finalizes 2016 National Schedule

CONCORD, NC – The final piece to the puzzle for the 2016 National Schedule for the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series has been put into place, as WKA Officials have announced a return to the Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, South Carolina for the series finale, as well as the Grand National event October 7-9.

The completion of the schedule for the 4 Cycle competitors caps off what has already been a great start for the LO206 Junior and Senior classes, following a phenomenal start at Daytona for KartWeek in the first annual Winter Cup Series event, in which 40 Senior competitors took to the track, along with a strong field of 17 Juniors.

While that momentum will continue Feb 5-7 at 103rd Street Sports Complex in Jacksonville, Florida, and March 4-6 at Go Pro Motorplex in Mooresville, North Carolina, the season will just be beginning a month and a half later when the Gold Cuppers hit Jacksonville for the season opener April 15-17. Adding the 2 events at Kershaw, as well as a return for the 4-cycle contingent to the Midwest at New Castle Motorsports Park in Indiana, the run for the Gold Cup crown will be tougher than ever.

In addition to the April Jax event serving as the season opener, the event will also mark a return for the Year End Awards presentation, once held at the track, and at other times during the course of history at other locations in the area. The Awards Presentation will follow the Friday Afternoon Money Events, which will again return to the lineup, headlined by the pair of $200 to win Sportsman and Junior Pro Gas Shootout races, along with the annual Senior Pro Gas Money Race to wind down the Friday on-track action.

As many have seen quite a few months ago, the Class Structure for 2016 has changed a bit, with this year serving as the first year in many without any Methanol classes. In its place will be an all-new Masters Senior Class for LO206 competitors age 40 and older. The class will run a Final 1/Final 2 format each race weekend. A change has also occurred with the Senior Pro Gas Class, as competitors will run a Medium and Heavy class in 2016, again running a Final 1/Final 2 format. All totaled, the daily class count will remain at 11 per day with a mix of LO206 and Pro Gas Classes offered in Sportsman, Junior, and Senior. The Kid Karts will also run the LO206 package again this year.

The Entry Blank for the Jacksonville event is currently under construction, and should be available next week, along with a Banquet Form for competitors wishing to make their reservations for the 2015 Year End Awards Presentation.

With the 2016 schedule now in place, work has already begun on 2017 dates and venues, which will indeed be out much earlier for people to view. Additionally, there are also some exciting new twists to the 2017 schedule that will include even more of a variety of tracks in different locations, thus helping to balance out the definition of National Schedule.

Here is a look at the 2016 RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series National Schedule:

April 15-17: 103rd Street Sports Complex, Jacksonville, Florida

June 24-26: Carolina Motorsports Park, Kershaw, South Carolina

Aug 5-7: New Castle Motorsports Park, New Castle, Indiana

Oct 7-9: Carolina Motorsports Park, Kershaw, South Carolina, Grand National
