Traveling to the Midwest and the New Castle Motorsports Park, Speed Concepts Racing will spend the next several weeks close to the motorsports capital of the world, Indianapolis, Indiana. Taking on the United States Pro Kart Series (USPKS) this coming weekend, seven drivers will be looking to start their Midwest adventure off with wins and podiums across multiple different classes.
It will be a quintet of drivers in the X30 Junior class led by multi-time 2019 champion Luca Mars. Mars will return to the squad after a couple events in Europe and will join the likes of Kyffin Simpson, Jace Park, Paul Bocuse and team newcomer Jack Jeffers.
“New Castle is one of those tracks that you need to have teammates and drafting partners so to have five drivers in Junior gives us what we need to challenge for race wins,” explained Mike Speed. “We had some great results in Indiana in 2018 and are really looking forward to the USPKS and SKUSA events there over the next couple of weeks.”
Joining the five junior drivers will be IAME Mini Swift driver Ayden Ingratta and X30 Masters competitor and recent USPKS race winner Scott Roberts. Both drivers have been at the top of the charts in the recent month and will be aiming for the same sort of results at the ultra-fast New Castle facility.
Speed continued, “We are coming off a good USPKS event in North Carolina a few weeks ago. The team was able to run at the front of the field, show great pace and pick up a win and some podiums. We will be pushing hard to better those results at New Castle.”
Speed Concepts Racing has several team chassis available for purchase that can be picked up at New Castle Motorsports Park. Both Tony Kart Mini and Full Size chassis are available and range from one to three races. All chassis in good condition and will come with new factory Tony Kart decal kit and new OTK fiberglass seat.
With official practice kicking off on Friday, two days of wheel-to-wheel action will commence over the weekend. Be sure to follow Speed Concepts Racing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for news, results, information and photo from the event. Find us at ‘Speed Concepts Racing’ or @SCR_Karting.
