USA ProKart Challenge Series Opener at California Speedway in Fontana
The USA ProKart Challenge Series kicked off with 100 drivers at California Speedway in Fontana. The K&N Engineering sponsored FX Racing Team of four drivers faced tough competition as the western regions top Shifter and TaG (Touch and Go) pilots took to the track.
2008 SuperKart series start great for FX Racing
Bobby Legate contested his first weekend under the FX Racing tent by setting a new track record while qualifying for Spec Honda at a 47.959. Legate fell to second at the beginning of Heat 1 because of a good jump from Patrick Cushenberry. “Starting on the pole is great,” said Frank Bain, FX Racing Team Manager. “But it was the dirty side of the track and the launch was a tricky proposition.” Legate managed to fight back and passed Cushenberry for the lead on lap 3 and stayed there.
Kart Preparation for USA ProKart Challenge Series opener at California Speedway
In the main, Legate dealt with the dirty side of the track by getting a jump at the start and gaining a six second lead by lap 2. “From there it was just a matter of putting the kart on cruise control to finish with a huge lead,” said Bain. “Bobby’s stellar performance shows why the FX Racing team is excited to work with this driver.”
FX Racing's Philip Conte faced changing positions in the main as battles raged throughout the race. He moved to second place before conceding position to Grant Westmoreland for the next 15 laps. “Conte is a pro,” said Bain. “He kept the pressure on as the laps wound down.”
In the Spec category veteran FX Racing driver Jim Barnes drove his new Hi-Tech Stock Honda with a 2006 FTR chassis to a well-earned 4th place finish and series points. Steve Weiner drove his ROK TT engine hard but couldn’t get by the pack. He banged wheels with another driver, bending an axle on both sides. “The FX Racing crew worked hard to get the kart race ready for the main and put Weiner back on track,” said Bain. “The FTR chassis had a chain failure and sidelined Wiener.”
Overall it was a good weekend for FX Racing. “We swept in Spec 3 class which is one of the most competitive classes in series,” said Bain. “K&N air filters were an important part of that sweep. K&N filters give us additional horsepower and that is a key component against our competitors in racing.”
