Moving to the junior ranks for the 2018 season, Canadian standout Justin Arseneau is set to join Speed Concepts Racing (SCR). Making the switch to the Tony Kart chassis and the SCR program, Arseneau will compete in the X30 Junior category in Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) competition under the watchful eye of Mike Speed and long time tuner Wes Schindel.
Kicking his 2018 campaign off at the SKUSA Winter Series, the Morin Heights, Quebec resident will look to learn from his elders as he will compete alongside Tyler Gonzalez and fellow rookie Kyffin Simpson in the junior category.
“I am very excited to have Justin in our program. He has been a fixture at the front of the field in the Mini categories and our goal is to keep him there in the junior ranks,” explained Speed Concepts Racing owner Mike Speed. “Focusing on the X30 engine platform, Justin will begin testing in early January before the first SKUSA Winter Series event in Homestead.”
Competing in all SKUSA events in 2018, Arseneau will see action in the Winter Series, Pro Tour and SuperNationals 22.
Speed continued, “We are finalizing all drivers for our 2018 programs and will have future announcements of both new and returning drivers.”
With a few weeks until the first round of the SKUSA Winter Series, several Speed Concepts Racing drivers will hit the track December 28 for practice before qualifying and wheel-to-wheel competition begins on December 29 and 30 at the World Karting Association Manufacturers Cup event in Daytona Beach, Florida.
