EKN Trackside: SKUSA Pro Tour MothersĀ® SummerNationals - Sunday Report

The fourth round of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour completed on Sunday as the Mothers® SummerNationals wrapped up at the Grand Junction Motor Speedway in Colorado. An interesting day of weather surrounded the area with rain storms pushing their way around the facility throughout the racing action, allowing for a dry but hot day around the 9/10-mile course. The racing action picked up, as you typically see in the final day of events, producing some great racing. Stamping his name in the championship chase was S1 driver Tom Dyer as he piloted his Aluminos entry to the win and event victory while IndyCar Series driver Martin Plowman scored the TaG Senior win.

S1 Pro Stock Moto
The S1 Pro Stock Moto category was positioned as the headline class for Sunday’s action, last to hit the track for qualifying. On his out lap, Kiwi driver Daniel Bray (GP) took the provisional pole with a 52.796. Rookie Lukas Johnson (GP) struck back the next lap to take over the spot. At the same time, Saturday winner Brad Dunford (GP) moved into second. Lap three was Bray’s for the taking as he retook the pole position and held it through the end of the session. His 52.282-lap was best with Johnson pushed back to second. Tom Dyer (GP) was last to hit the track and moved up to third on his second circuit, moving Dunford down to fourth and Ryon Beachner (Tony Kart) rounding out the fast-five.

EKN Trackside: SKUSA Pro Tour MothersĀ® SummerNationals - Saturday Report
Written by eKartingNews.com   
Saturday, 16 July 2011 23:00
The first day of action went into the books for Superkarts! USA Pro Tour Mothers® SummerNationals. The Grand Junction Motor Speedway in Colorado was the back drop for what was another exciting day of racing in the eight categories on hand. The weather challenged the competitors all day long, beginning with cloudy skies early on before the weather cranked up throughout the day while the occasional gust of wind dusted the track surface and tested the tents throughout the paddock. While each category had its own hero of the day, NorCal’s Brett Felkins left the day extending his point lead in the TaG Senior Pro Tour standings with win number two of the season as SoCal’s Brad Dunford earned his first national victory in S1 Pro Stock Moto.

TaG Senior
The headline class for day one of action was the TaG Senior division as they began their day with an open pit 12-minute session for qualifying. British native and recent IndyCar Series signee Martin Plowman (Zanardi/Leopard) set the early mark in his first three laps, on the border to break the 53-second mark. Lap three was the best Plowman could do during his first stint, posting a 54.107-lap with 14-year old Dakota Dickerson (Arrow/Rotax) back by just 0.048-seconds on his fourth lap. They would all drop down the order when veteran Eric Jones (Arrow/Rotax) posted his fifth lap of the session, just three-thousandths of a second quicker than Plowman’s time. Late in the session, point leader Brett Felkins (Intrepid/Leopard) made a charge into the top three, just 15-thousandths off Jones’ mark. Jones rejoined the track with less than two minutes in the session after a carburetion change on his KartSport North American Rotax powerplant but pulled off before completing a timed lap. His best time stood through to the checkered flag with Plowman second, Felkins third and Dickerson fourth - all separated by just 51-thousandths of a second. Matt Johnson (Tony Kart/Vortex) finished off the fast-five, two-tenths off the best lap.

The second event of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour takes place this weekend in Grand Junction, Colorado with the sophomore edition of the Mothers® SummerNationals. The 9/10-mile circuit of Grand Junction Motor Speedway will host the event, providing a stunning backdrop and racecourse for three days of exciting action to complete Rounds 3 and 4 of the five-race championship.

The Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals kicked off the Pro Tour in late April/early May at the Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona. Aside from the occasional wind/dust storm, the weekend was a triumph with 164 drivers contesting eight categories, an increase of 70% from the inaugural event in 2010. With 130 drivers entered prior to arriving in Grand Junction for the Mothers® SummerNationals, the event could see an increase of more than 50% from last year’s event in Wisconsin.

The Grand Junction Motor Speedway is among the best karting circuit designs in the United States. At just under 1-mile, the 32’ wide course offers a variety of fast straightaways, technical corners and elevation changes. A view of a hot lap from TaG Senior driver Martin Plowman during testing can be viewed HERE

The SKUSA Pro Tour, in just its second year, is gaining a lot of attention thanks to its straight-forward format of Stock Moto shifterkarts and tiered TaG classes. The internal ladder system in Stock Moto - S1, S2, S4, S5 - and through the TaG divisions - Senior, Master, Junior, Cadet - allows competitors to begin their karting career with the organization at any level and graduate up the ranks based on age and experience. The list of drivers taking part in the program continues to grow and, in accordance, the prestige of a Pro Tour championship is increasing as the participation numbers and level of competition increases.

The eight entry lists for this weekend’s Mothers® SummerNationals are loaded with talent, ready to tackle the Grand Junction facility and continue their chase to Pro Tour championship glory.  Read the FULL story at eKartingNews.com
