The Dallas Karting Complex racing team (DKC) brought home an array of hardware from the SuperKarts! USA (SKUSA) WinterNationals at NOLA Motorsports Park. The team scored two wins and seven podiums at the inaugural event, earning more hardware than any other team. DKC came into the event ready to battle with a stout line up of 13 drivers, taking the track in the Micro Swift, Mini Swift, X30 Junior, Senior, and Masters, S1, S2, and S4 Super Masters categories.

Teammate Graig Alvarez suffered an unfortunate DNF on Saturday, but came back for redemption on Sunday, scoring himself a third place finish and a spot on the podium. Skyler Finley posted a strong fourth place finish in Saturday’s main event.

He took home the win on Saturday, becoming the inaugural event winner in S1, and earned silver on Sunday. Teammate Austin Wilkins made his S1 debut, scoring two top-ten finishes in the competitive field. In S4 Super Masters, Mike Jones put his Sodi Kart on the pole both days of the event. He earned two second place finishes, driving from dead last on Sunday.
