Midwest PKC Finishes 2012 Season at New Castle Motorsports Park
Wednesday, 22 August 2012 11:20
The 2012 Midwest ProKart Challenge came to an end on the August 10-12 weekend at the New Castle Motorsports Park in central Indiana. The 1-mile course, owned and designed by former IndyCar driver Mark Dismore, played host to rounds five and six of the 2012 championship chase. The finale event welcomed a number of new competitors to the series, boasting strong battles in the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto, S5 Junior Stock Moto, TaG Master and TaG Cadet divisions.

Local drivers dominated the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto qualifying session on Saturday with Tim Hollowell scoring the pole position with a 1:03.566 lap time, edging out Kyle Ludwick and Eric Batt. Hollowell drove to the win in both heat races, the first over Ludwick with Joe Ruch up into the third position. The second saw Batt move forward to finish second with Nick Lougee following through for third. Capping off the sweep for the day, Hollowell posted the fast laps of the main event en route to the victory, his first of the season. Ludwick fought back to finish second with Jimmy Simpson rounding out the podium for an all New Castle driver podium. The following day saw the same driver at the top of the time sheets as Hollowell was quickest in Sunday qualifying, posting a similar lap to Saturday’s fast time. Batt was second with Cole Mathewson third, all within a tenth of each other. Hollowell led the way in heat one until he lost his chain, ending his race early and handing the lead over to Batt who went on to win over Mathewson and Simpson. After an early challenge from Mathewson, Batt went on to score the win in heat two with Ludwick up to second and Simpson finishing third until he was removed in tech for failing inspection, moving Lougee to third. Batt secured the lead once the feature race began and led all 20 laps to score the victory. Ludwick ran a close second for a double runner-up weekend with Hollowell, posting the fast laps of the race, climbing back up to third after his heat one DNF.

Koyen and Sieracki Earn Victories in Midwest ProKart Challenge Debut
Monday, 16 July 2012 00:02
Superkarts! USA returned to the state of Wisconsin after a number of years away when the Midwest ProKart Challenge took its series to the Road America facility in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on June 30-July 1. The Blain’s Farm & Fleet Motorplex inside the famed 4-mile circuit hosted karters from around the Great Lakes area to contest rounds three and four of the six-race series. Those drivers on hand battled warm weather conditions and a challenging course, while completing nearly 100 competition laps over the two days. The championships moved to the next chapter following the opening two rounds in Quincy during the month of May, and will complete its final stage come August 18-19 at the New Castle Motorsports Park.

The TaG Senior class, sponsored by Kart Star Motorsports, was very competitive with familiar names battling one another. Point leader Tommy Andersen led things to start off the action on Saturday as he posted the fast lap of 49.2 seconds. Andersen went on to win both heat races, although he was challenged by fellow Wisconsin driver TJ Koyen in both. In the feature, Koyen would come through for the victory to end Andersen’s streak, dropping him down to second with veteran Jamie Sieracki in third. Sunday saw Sieracki jump to the top of the sheets in qualifying with a new set of MG Tires strapped on, bettering the time set by Andersen the previous day by seven-tenths. Koyen came forward in heat one, taking the win and bringing Andersen with him to put Sieracki back to third. Andersen took his turn at the point as he came away with the win in heat two, as Sieracki ran second and Koyen fell to third. Sieracki was able to get the jump as the green flag waved to start the feature race. Zach Hawley jumped into the battle for second, allowing Sieracki enough time to establish a sizable lead. After 20 laps, Sieracki scored the victory by two seconds over Andersen and Koyen.
