The Grande CCW layout would play host to the CalSpeed Super Series for round #2, and once again it would be an action packed day, as drivers continued to come to grips with the reconfigured CalSpeed Karting configurations. As this was the second event though, most of the drivers had seen the new bits before, and especially for the veterans, the high speed nature of the old parts was a welcome sight as well.
Like we saw in the season opener, it would be the Super Series veterans and experienced karters that had a
Unlike last month, the C-Main for round #2 would be a dogfight, with no less than five drivers looking like they had a shot at the win over the course of the 12 lap race. Starting from pole, Antonio Aranda looked to have the pace to keep the field at bay, but after continuously earning warnings for 4-wheels off, would earn a penalty that took him out of the fight. Trevor Volin was also in the lead pack, taking over the lead with the exit of Aranda, but he too would earn a penalty having moved into the lead via contact. In the final laps it was Nor-Cal driver Roddy Balanga scoring the hardware over Rodney Bryant, with Mike Carlson surviving a hornet’s nest to come away third.
This time around it would be the B-Main that was the calm one, at least at the very front. Max Demoss Sr would lead the field away at the start, but it would
Logan Calvin would lead the field to the green, but it would be Sean Fite emerging from turn number one with the top spot, with Calvin slotting in behind. And while the rest of the top ten would also make it though the first corner unscathed, the same could not be said after that, as contact dictated several position in the tight Short Beach corner. More contact in turn 11 would see the lead pack destabilized further, and by the time the first lap was over, Calvin and Fite had over a second lead on third. This advantage would only grow as the laps wore on, as Calvin dutifully remained the pusher for Fite, not breaking ranks until deep into the race.
Behind the lead duo was a similar story, as Patrick Britain led over Alyssa Yauney for the opening handful of circuits before the reigning champ made her move to second. This move cost them very little time, as they continued to lead a quartet of drivers that also included Adam Nagao and Taylor Hays. Things would change in the final few laps
The CalSpeed Super Series returns March 30th on the longest course of the season, Grande. This will be the first Super Series event for the clockwise direction on the new layout, so it should be an exciting one. Don’t miss out!
