After completing their January and February in Florida, Team Crosslink has now set up camp at NOLA Motorsports Park for the upcoming Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) Pro Tour. Taking part in the Texas Sprint Racing Series event this past weekend as a tune up, seven Exprit Kart drivers will now enter the prestigious SKUSA WinterNationals as they aim for the top step of the podium.
“We have seven drivers this weekend at in NOLA,” explained Sean Owens, Team Manager for Team Crosslink. “NOLA is a challenging track and changes throughout the day, so we will need to make sure we are on top of our game. We will work together as a team for the best possible results and see what happens when wheel-to-wheel action begins.”
After claiming the SKUSA Winter Series X30 Masters Vice Championship with Miguel Mier, the Texan will miss the event as Derek Wang will be the sole entry in the elder class. A consistent frontrunner in SKUSA competition, Wang should have the speed to challenge for the victory in NOLA, but also be a threat for the overall series title.
Reilly Cann will be the Team Crosslink representative in X30 Senior as he carries the team’s colors into NOLA. Showing pace at the SKUSA Winter Series but having no racing luck, Cann will aim to turn that around this weekend. Three Team Crosslink entries will come from the KA100 Senior class as Dylan Towne will be joined by the brother duo of Michael and David Ilavia as the 100cc class continues to gain popularity in the SKUSA program.
Alex Stanfield will be the sole X30 Junior entry for the Texas based operation and will compete in the X30 Junior class. Stanfield was one of the team’s top performers over the winter months and performed very well at last weekend’s Texas Sprint Racing Series event at the same facility. Myles Ho will join Stanfield in the junior ranks competing in KA100 Junior.
With practice taking place both Thursday and Friday this week, wheel-to-wheel action will begin Saturday as two full race days will kick off the 2020 SKUSA Pro Tour. Keep up with Team Crosslink all weekend long via their social media pages for news, information, photos, and results from NOLA Motorsports Park.
Team Crosslink will compete in several local, regional and national level programs. With arrive and drive programs, product sales and services, driver coaching and data analysis, Team Crosslink will also turn over one or two race chassis following their events. Drivers looking to compete with the elite level karting program or to pick up gently used team equipment are asked to contact Sean Owens via email to Sean@crosslinkcompetition.com.
