It has been an incredible three races for Caleb Gafrarar since making the switch to Rolison Performance Group (RPG), and the North Carolina teenager will look to keep that going this weekend at the Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals. Taking place on the grounds of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS), Gafrarar will take on another temporary circuit in the talent filled X30 Junior class.
“I am anxious to get back behind the wheel and going again in Las Vegas,” explained Caleb G. “I love the challenges of the temporary layouts and how precise I have to be as a driver. It is a new location for this year’s event which means a different race surface, but we will work hard through the short practice sessions to fine tune the Kosmic chassis to give us a chance once wheel-to-wheel racing begins.”
Scoring a win in his RPG debut at the United States Pro Kart Series (USPKS) along with a third-place podium result, Gafrarar added another podium finish less than a month ago at the ROK Cup USA ROK Vegas event. Now, looking to close the 2021 season on a high, Gafrarar is looking towards the top of the results sheets at SuperNats 24.
Gafrarar added, “For me, the 2022 season started as soon as I joined RPG. With next year my last season in the junior ranks, the goal to finish 2021 strong and with some momentum is key to starting January’s events with some confidence and a run at several championships.”
On track action begins on Wednesday with practice, while an additional two practice sessions will take place on Thursday morning before qualifying later in the day. Two of three heat races will take place on Friday with the third and final heat race, as well as Last Chance Qualifying races taking place on Saturday. Four days of on track action will lead towards Super Sunday and the main events where Caleb Gafrarar will aim to become the 2021 X30 Junior SKUSA SuperNationals Champion!
Caleb Gafrarar would like to thank Rolison Performance Group, OTK USA, Kosmic, Bell Helmets, Minus 273, and CPI Security for the continued support throughout the 2021 racing season.
