Another successful event for Superkarts! USA and US Rotax Max Challenge program, welcoming Briggs 206 racers for first time

SACHSE, TX (July 15, 2016) – It was another hot Lone Star State weekend at the Gulf Coast Kartways for the third stop of the Texas ProKart Challenge. The Katy, Texas facility welcomed a number of competitors from the region to compete in the P1 Promotions Superkarts! USA and Texas Barge & Boat Inc. Rotax Max Challenge programs over the July 8-10 weekend. It was the first event on the calendar to avoid rain conditions, with clear blue skies setting the stage for the fifth and sixth rounds of the championship chases - many preparing for the upcoming SKUSA SummerNationals and the US Rotax Grand Nationals. Officials provided another professionally-run event, including snow cone awards for the top drivers and their mechanics in Friday’s final practice session.

Wilkins went wire-to-wire on the day, earning a 12-second advantage after 16 laps. Championship leader Jordon Musser drove to second ahead of Vincent Cosard. Andretta Young and Taylor Ross completed the top-five. Musser was able to break up the perfect weekend, awarded the pole position in qualifying on Sunday after Wilkins was penalized for impeding another driver during the session. Wilkins was among a group of drivers that committed the penalty, and all were penalized by the Texas PKC officials. Austin fought back to win both heat races and the main event for his third victory on the season. Musser kept it close, just a few tenths behind at the checkered flag. Casey Ross improved to the third step on the podium, ahead of Young and Cosard. French ran uncontested in the S1 division, as did Tamer Hassan in the S4 Master Stock Moto class. Blair Hosie and Riley Dickinson split the wins in the S3 Novice Stock Moto.

Tiner went on to win both heats and lead all 13 laps of the main event for the victory. Round Two winner Caiden Mitchell worked his way up to second after a few front-runners retired early. Destin Shields earned his first podium of the season in third ahead of Travis Wiley and Luke Lange. Cunningham returned Sunday to once again top the charts in qualifying and won the opening heat race before slipping back in Heat #2. Tiner went on to score the win to start the main event from the pole position. The Final was a battle to the end with Shields and Hernandez taking a turn at the lead. It came down to Travis Wiley putting on the pressure during the final lap. Tiner reached the line first by just 83 thousandths of a second over Wiley. Mitchell placed third with Cunningham up to fourth ahead of Alex Stanfield.
