Considered among the most challenging courses in North America, the Norman, Oklahoma circuit welcomed the P1 Promotions Superkarts! USA and Texas Barge & Boat Inc. Rotax Max Challenge programs as the chase toward the series championships continued. Friday and Saturday provided perfect racing weather while Sunday brought in the familiar rain weather accustom to major events at OKC. The wet weather mixed up the results in some categories with a number of new winners and repeat victors highlighting the weekend.

The headline Stock Moto race group, presented by Champion Racing and Uncle Hal Gottspeed Racing, was led all weekend by the S1 Pro Stock Moto drivers. Jake French was challenged on the weekend by Florida driver Nick Neri. French swept the opening round on Saturday with Neri fighting back Sunday. Nick set fast time in qualifying and won the heat race, only to see French fight his way back to point and earn a fourth straight victory. Harry Gottsacker notched his first series victory in the S2 Semi-Pro division while point leader Jordon Musser added a second on the year. Round One winner Austin Wilkins was in control throughout Saturday through qualifying and the two heat races. Wilkins led wire-to-wire in class, until a two-position penalty for too wide in the rear width took the win away. That handed the victory to Gottsacker and moved Musser up to second and Wilkins down to third. Andretta Young and Greg Alvarez completed the top-five. Musser went undefeated collin queen omcColin Queen swept the weekend in IAME Mini Swift in his 2016 series debut (Photo: TPKC)Sunday, leading the class in all on-track sessions for his second victory in 2016. Wilkins drove to second with Young improving to third ahead of Casey Ross and Nathan Mauel. Rod Clinard and Venkat Reddy each took home a victory in the S4 Master Stock Moto division.

Colin Queen made a return to Texas ProKart Challenge competition with a sweeping performance of the IAME Mini Swift division, presented by Mind Shift Financial. Queen led every on-track session, in the dry and in the wet, against the largest field of the event with 17 drivers. Saturday, Colin never relinquished the lead position, pacing every single circuit of the two eight-lap heat races and the 12-lap main event. He stretched out to a four-second advantage for the victory ahead of Aden Rudolph and Chase Gardner. Denton winners Branyon Tiner and Caiden Mitchell completed the top-five. Despite the wet weather, Sunday was the same with Queen ruling over the field in qualifying, the heat race, and Final. The advantage was 14 seconds in the feature with Mitchell and Gardner joining him on the podium while Alex Stanfield and Adrian Cruz finished fourth and fifth.

Superkarts! USA regional and US Rotax Max Challenge competitors kick off fifth season of program at North Texas Kartways
The 2016 season is underway for the Texas ProKart Challenge, hosting the opening event of year at the North Texas Karters facility. The Denton, Texas circuit welcomed racers of the P1 Promotions Superkarts! USA and Texas Barge & Boat Inc. Rotax Max Challenge programs to begin their championship chases. Racers battled around the 1/2-mile course in six race groups, featuring qualifying, two heat races and a final for each round following a full day of practice on Friday. Rain Saturday morning made things interesting prior to qualifying, but the weather turned around and was perfect for racing. The Friday night series kick-off dinner welcomed all the competitors, team members and racing families to begin the new era of the Texas ProKart Challenge, building a sense of community off-track in the hopes of making a positive impact on-track.

The weekend was a near sweep in the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto category with Jordon Musser leading much of the weekend while Austin Wilkins stole one of the feature wins. Musser, a former S4 Pro Tour champion, set fast time in the overall qualifying session Saturday, including edging out S1 Pro Stock Moto driver Jake French by 35 thousandths of a second. French won the two heat races over Musser and was leading the main event until the bumper bolt broke, ending his race prematurely. This handed the overall lead to Austin Wilkins after Musser drove off-track earlier in the race. Wilkins led the remainder of the laps to score the victory over Lawson Nagel. Musser fought his way back up to the third position over Hannah Williams and Erin Sims. Both French and Musser bounced back Sunday. Musser set fast time once again in qualifying, with French advancing to the top position in both heat races with Jordon running second overall. They went 1-2 for the entire 20 laps of the Final, each earning the victory in their respective categories. Wilkins was second behind Musser with Nagel crossing in third. Colin Long and Williams completed the top-five. French swept the S1 division as the lone competitor, as did Rod Clinard in the S4 Master Stock Moto category.
