WKA's Pit Board - 09.07.2010
New Jersey Sprint Series Round No. 4 this weekend at NJMP
09.07.2010 (MILLVILLE, N.J.) - The New Jersey Sprint Series will roar back into action with round four scheduled for September 10-12 at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP). Round four is shaping up to be the largest event in NJSS history. Building on the momentum of Round Three at Raceway Park (237 entries), point battles for this race will surely become a huge factor in year-end results. The other factor in this event will be the invasion of The WKA Man Cup Regulars who are planning to be in attendance to get some valuable track time before the National race the week later. For many of the Man Cup drivers this will be there first opportunity to test and tune at this track, and they are looking forward to the eight hours of practice on Friday and racing Saturday and Sunday. All event information is posted on the Web site at www.NJSprintSeries.com.
In the Junior Sportsman Divisions, two drivers have had standout years; Brandon Jarsocrak (Haase) and Ryan Raffa (Top Kart/Haase) lead the way. Jarsocrak leads the points in two classes and Raffa has the lead in three. Both drivers are set to remain on top but they will face some tough competition not only from each other but from the remainder of the sportsman drivers. Brendan Cullura, Tazio Torregiani, Vincenzo Sarracino, Anthony Gangi, and Jared Cordova have all look strong and could easily slide in for a Round 4 win. The sportsman divisions have had stout fields all season and any of the numerous drivers could take the win. Being at the fence to watch the sportsman divisions is a must at all NJSS events as many times there is a 5 to 10 kart draft for the lead. With the finish line at NJMP being at the end of the long stretch run the draft and being in the right place at the right time will definitely determine the winner. NJSS would also like to thank the sponsors of our sportsman divisions; they include FULL TILT RACING, MIKE DOTY RACING, COMET KART SALES, THE TWINS RACING, and MONAGHAN/NEVOSO RACING.
In the Junior divisions, Aidan Landauer (Birel) and Garrett Johnston (Top Kart) lead the point battles each running at the top of 2 classes. Hot on their heels however are some strong competitors such as Jake Johnston, Shawn Sharkey, Andrew Stecher and Kevin Barbesino. All will be looking to add to their win totals during round 4. The Junior divisions are always hotly contested and rumor has it that many of the WKA Man Cup regulars will be at round four in preparations for the following weeks MAN CUP race. NJSS junior racers are looking forward to the race and many of them plan to be back the following weekend. NJSS would once again like to thank all are Junior division sponsors, SCS RACING, COMET KART SALES, and HINDMAN RACING.
Moving on to the Sr. Tag divisions Michael Politis (Merlin) leads the way in 2 classes, Formula 125 and WKA Tag. He will be heading into the weekend not only looking to keep his point lead but tuning for the race the following weekend. Looking to knock him out of the top spot will be Mark Boos and Rob Murphy. Murphy has been consistently fast in the weeks leading up to the event and Mark Boos has always run well at the NJMP facility. Another strong challenge will come from local hot shoe Jimmy Fatum who at the last NJSS event at NJMP smoked all challengers in the Formula 125 class. In the Tag Masters division John Bonanno (Haase) leads the way with Bobby Greene a close second. The Tag Masters division has been the strongest of all classes this year as the class average so far for the 3 races has been 22 entries per event. NJSS hopes many of the Tag Masters racers will return the following week to run the WKA Man Cup event. The 2010 sponsors of our Tag divisions include ACTION KART SUPPLY, CONTEMPORARY MOTOR CARS and CHAMPIONSHIP KARTING INTERNATIONAL. Thank you for your support.
The Sr. Shifter division is currently being lead by Jared Krinsky (Tony Kart) but by the smallest of margin over Kristian Werkley. These two are set to do battle once again on the long NJMP circuit. They will once again get stiff competition from Ken Ichikawa, Bernard Muminovic and Carlos Lopes. Also expected to be on hand for the weekend will be SSC East driver Alex Manglass who was the class of the field at the first NJSS race at NJMP. KartingConnect.com is the Sr. Shifter class sponsor; visit the website to gain all your karting info that you need.

Moving forward to the Sr. Can division and 4 stoke divisions. Derek Eustis (Arrow) leads the point's battles in both Can Lite and Can Heavy. Always tough racing in the can classes with any of a handful of drivers vying for the top spot. Mark Boos, Ronnie Safar, Chris Monogue and Patrick Healy will all look to knock Eustis out of the top position. Yamaha Masters is currently being lead by Anthony Depalo (Arrow). Consistency marks Depalo's racing this season and it shows with the points lead. Strong competition has been the case in the Sr. Animal class; Jack Krieger leads the way and will be looking to add to his points lead over David Hancock and Brant Knapsack. NJSS would like to thank the sponsors for their Support, RCC AMUSEMENTS, BOATINGCENTERNET.com and KUSTOM KART SHOP.
