MAUI KART CHALLENGE CONTINUING TO BUILD HEADING INTO ROUND THREE
Superkarts! USA Hawaii regional series adds TaG Masters to class lineup

KAHULUI, HAWAII (August 6, 2008) - The Superkarts! USA Hawaii Region will return to the Maui Motorsports Park Puunene Kart Track this weekend for the third round of the new Maui Kart Challenge. The program continues to grow in numbers and now in classes with the addition of the S3 class in Round #2 and now the TaG Masters division for Round #3.

Art Gumpfer, president of the Maui Kart Challenge continues to see the excitement build each month. "It is very apparent that the club members really enjoy our involvement with Superkarts! USA as a region, and we are steadily growing in membership. Our race track here on Maui has a lot of potential and SKUSA is helping us reach our goals. There are a lot of positive things going on here."

Round #2 saw just under a dozen TaG Seniors in the paddock as Andres Frate led the way by qualifying on the pole, going on to win both heats and the main to sweep the day. The S3 class made its debut to the island's karting community last month and the initial response was very positive. The series put four karts on-track to kick off this new program as Steve Eggers, Jed Bahouth, Denis Valente and Tom Zaccanini have all embraced the Stock Moto concept. Zaccanini actually added the S3 program to his TaG ride, doing double-duty on the weekend. Zaccanini laid down some solid performances on the day to take the main event win in his first shifter kart drive. Two K1 entries saw Jessie Nielson qualifying on the pole and taking it all the way to the main event win, while Lauren Christensen won in the TaG Cadet class.
