Morad claims victory while Langlois comes home in second
Guelph, ON. -- November 22, 2006 -- First Kart North America and the FirstKart.com race team had an outstanding outing at the tenth annual SuperKarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals claiming the first two steps of the podium in the TaG Senior class. Taking home the checkers was Formula BMW Rookie-of-the-Year Daniel Morad while pushing him across the line was British Columbia's Brendan Langlois.
Working their way through the heat races, Morad started the final on the outside of the front row and took the lead at the drop of the flag. Langlois had a little bit of work to do after failing to finish one of the heat races and starting the final in P13. After the first lap, Langlois had moved forward into the top five as the lead group began to open a gap on the field.
As the top five swapped positions nearly every lap, Morad began the final circuit in the lead with Langois in the fourth position. Morad protected his line into the final two passing zones while Langlois picked up one position at the end of the long back straight. Heading into the final corner, Langlois through his Parilla powered First Kart inside his fellow competitor taking away the second position and drove to the finish right behind his FirstKart.com teammate.
With the win, Morad received a trip to Brazil for the Granja 500 as well as a Formula BMW test with Hearn Motorsports. Due to his participation in the BMW World Finals in Valencia Spain, Morad passed the trip to Brazil onto Canadian Brendan Langlois.
Karting standout Alan Rudolph claimed a top ten result in the ultra competitive SuperPro field after starting the final deep in the field. Rudolph methodically worked his way forward to the 8th position while claiming the third quickest laptime of the event.
Reaction Karting's and First Kart driver Cody Tracy had a terrific start to the weekend qualifying on the pole position in the S3 division but as with any temporary circuit, staying out of trouble becomes a big factor. Tracy had the speed to run at the front but was involved in a first lap incident taking him out of contention
