It was an amazing day in the city of Lancaster on Sunday, as the California ProKart Challenge wrapped up the 2014 season at the sixth annual Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix. The southern California city welcomed over 100 racers for what is a three-day festival on the Boulevard. The Superkarts! USA racers on hand put on a show for the hundreds of spectators, making the main events Sunday afternoon a memorable one for those on and off the track.

TaG Senior
Hometown driver Brendan Baker (Tony Kart) set the tone in the final heat race, leading all 10 laps to score the pole position for the main event. Four drivers made up the lead group, with Andrick Zeen (Praga), Nathan Seegrist (Tony Kart) and Chris Cricca (ART GP). The fight was for second, with Cricca holding the spot and then Zeen, but it was Seegrist scoring the position. Zeen ended up third with Cricca back to fourth. Kyle Hayner (Birel) won the fifth spot over Austin Elliott (Kosmic).

It was three early on in the 20-lap main event, with Baker, Zeen, and Seegrist as Cricca fell back. The defending race winner closed back in as the trio shuffled for the top spot. Cricca began moving forward with Zeen helping, mixing up the group to take a turn at the point. By lap seven, Cricca was into the lead. After the halfway point, the shuffling continued with Baker and Seegrist getting a taste of the lead. Cricca eventually took over the position, and gapped the group. The fight for second heated up, as they did not stay in line to reel in Cricca. That allowed Stepanova Nekeel (Vemme) to close in and join the fight. Nekeel had worked his way into third, and tried for the second spot on lap 19, but slid too far at turn five, going off into the barriers and out of the race. Baker retired just before that, losing the brakes on his machine and went into the barriers as well. Out front Cricca drove away to his second straight Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix victory by four-seconds. Zeen secured the second spot over Seegrist with Elliott fourth and Josh Sarchet (ART GP) fifth.

Elliott, recovering from a major crash in Modesto, was honored after the podium ceremonies by the city of Lancaster. The NorCal pilot was name the Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix Driver Scholarship winner, earning a $12,000 program to promote the event as a competitor at the California ProKart Challenge and SKUSA Pro Tour in 2015.  Read full story on eKartingnews.com

Opening day of 2014 Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix was picture perfect. Clear skies, a big crowd and a hungry group of over 100 racers setting up for what was to be an exciting two days of racing in the downtown district of the Southern California city. Practice, qualifying and the first round of heat racing was completed Saturday, along with a number of VIP races under the lights for the city of Lancaster, and all of the Grand Prix supporters.

S1 Pro/S2 Semi-Pro
As we have seen all season long, the S2 Semi-Pro drivers have shown the speed to compete with the S1 Pro drivers in qualifying. Today was no different, as S2 point leader Kolton Griffin (Tony Kart) recorded the fast time in qualifying by over a tenth with a 40.498-second lap. The top S1 Pro was defending race winner Fritz Leesmann (CRG). Veteran Ron White (CRG) was third overall, with S2 rookie Jarred Campbell (Intrepid) in fourth. Ryon Beachner (Tony Kart) and Billy Musgrave (Tony Kart) completed the top six overall, with S2 drivers Carter Williams (FA Kart) in seventh.

The last race of the day was the S1/S2 heat race, with Leesmann and White putting on a show at the final corner. Nearly every lap, the two exchanged the lead. White eventually prevailed with the position and scored the race win. Leesmann had to settle for second, but recorded the fast lap of the race. Musgrave drove to third overall, with Griffin and Campbell the top S2 drivers. Beachner, Matias Podboj (ART GP) completed the S1 top-five with Blake Murdock (FA Kart), Williams and Alan Michel (Tony Kart) rounding out the S2 top-five.  Read full story on eKartingnews.com
