SHOWDOWN SET FOR FIRST ROCK ISLAND CUP
ROCK ISLAND, Ill. -- After completion of the east and west zone Superkarts! USA ProMoto Tour races, Craig Sender finds himself five points ahead of Kirk Jeffery in the battle for the inaugural Rock Island Cup series championship.
Those 125cc shifter drivers competing in the Formula G1 class for drivers over age 35 as a demonstration class during ProMoto Tour events, have been earning points toward the championship. Final points will be awarded during the east meets west showdown Aug. 31-Sept. 1 at the Rock Island Grand Prix in Rock Island, Ill.
With only six drivers completing a full three-race zone series, the race for the final series podium is down to just a handful of drivers. Drivers had to commit to racing one zone or the other. West Zone drivers Sender and Jeffery lead the points race with 280 and 275 points respectively. They are followed by a number of East Zone pilots led by John Spindler who captured first-place finishes at Barrie and Norway, but dropped to ninth at Austin, Texas.
With 100 points going to the winner at Rock Island, any number of drivers can still finish in the top three for series points.
The current Top 10 are: C. Sender 280, K. Jeffery 275, J. Spindler 263, R. Reichardt 170, J. Buck 170, J. Seidler 153, B. Megdal 140, M. Woods 134, D. Schroeder 134, S. Mitz 130.
Superkarts! USA and the Rock Island Grand Prix also began a Rock Island Cup series for the Intercontinental C class as a demonstration ProMoto Class, but the series was discontinued due to low turnout at early races in the series. The Intercontinental C class will be run at Rock Island, however.
