Closing out the back end of five weekends straight of racing, Team Crosslink will enter five drivers in this coming weekend’s IAME USA Grand National Championship. Taking place at the GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, North Carolina, a quintet of drivers will be vying for race wins, podiums results and the chance to call themselves IAME Grand National Champions.
“The hype for this event has been pretty big considering it is the inaugural race and one that was just announced a few months ago,” explained Team Manager Sean Owens. “We immediately had drivers showing interest and that carried into some commitments. In the end, we have five competitors making the trek to North Carolina to see what they can do.”
2020 USPKS X30 Pro Junior champ Alex Stanfield will be joined by 2021 KA100 podium winner Reilly Cann as the duo look to work together and towards the top step of the podium in KA100 Senior. In the KA100 Junior side of the program, perennial front-runner Aden Rudolph and Brayden Robertson will be joined by Cody Kleck as the trio throw their hats into this mix. Kleck will also see action in the X30 Junior ranks to complete the five-driver, six entry squad.
With drivers hitting the track on Thursday, teams and competitors will have ample opportunity to move through unofficial practice and official sessions before qualifying and wheel-to-wheel racing begins. With the goal to be the first across the finish line on Sunday, Team Crosslink driver coaches, crew and mechanics will be working hard to ensure they have the setup and equipment to beat at the challenging North Carolina facility.
