KATY, TX (August 29, 2014) – The 2014 Texas ProKart Challenge - presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King®/Chase Racing/Dallas Karting Complex/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys - entered the second half of the season following the August 14-16 event at the North Texas Kartways. The Denton, Texas facility hosted a unique Thursday through Saturday event, featuring racing under the lights for all three days to escape the Texas summer heat. The weather was perfect for racing, until Saturday morning when rain made it way across the area. It quickly went away and racing continued in dry conditions, closing out the fifth and sixth rounds of the series.
