The Red Line Oil Karting Championship will shift gears and use the tight Sprint track configuration for round two on Sunday, May 1st at the Jim Russell International Karting Center. The GoPro featured class will be 80 Masters, where the race winner will take home a GoPro HD Hero Camera.
Several classes will feature some very close and competitive racing. The Rotax Senior class with nine strong drivers in the field last month should again highlight a very competitive race with several drivers taking a shot at de-throning round one winner Carlos Calderon. First time 80 Masters winner Charles Hastings should expect a strong challenge from at least three other past winners including defending class champ Tom Nelson. Look for a battle royal in the Sanzaru Games Rotax Mini Max class where competive racing was experienced by all ten drivers last month. Expect Michael Avansino, Michael Michoff and Scott Huffaker to once again fight for the win and $50 in cash. Second and third places will take home $30 and $20, respectively. Mini Max class sponsor Sanzaru Games will be awarding cash prizes all season long. With seven drivers, the ‘club’ IAME TaG class started the season with good driver interest and competitive racing. With nine drivers, the SKUSA rules based S2 and S4 race group not only saw good numbers for the season opener, but also provided some outstanding racing.
Saturday practice is available from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm with pre-race registration also available at Saturday. Entry fee for the race is $100 plus $10 for transponder rental, $10 for pit passes and $50 for Saturday practice. Sunday’s schedule starts at 8:20 am with the first heat taking the green flag at 10:45 am.
Spectator information: With a second event at Infineon Raceway on this race weekend, all spectators, crew and drivers must go to the old Jim Russell building to buy a pit pass and to sign in for the karting event. Your wrist band will admit you into the raceway. When you pull into the Infineon Raceway entrance, look to the right and you will see the Red Line Oil Karting Championship sign with the arrow pointing to the right. Park next to the brick wall and go behind the wall to the old Russell building.
