CENTRAL STATES CHALLENGE TO CROWN 2008 CHAMPIONS AT SEASON FINALE
Championship chases to be decided in Missouri at I-55 Speedway
PEVELY, MO (October 21, 2008) -- The sixth and final round of the Superkarts! USA Central States Challenge will take place this weekend at the I-55 Speedway complex in Pevely, MO. Home to many of the SCSC regulars, the Pevely weekend is bound to be the biggest and fiercest event of the season. The weekend's performances will decide the class champions as the best four of six results from the year will count towards the championship standings.
The S3 category is down to just two drivers heading into the season finale. Rick Freund and Matt Zeis will go head-to-head in Pevely as Zeis currently holds the edge when counting the two drop races. Three wins and a fifth place finish put Zeis ahead by 48 points over Freund's one victory and three runner-up results. A third or better by Zeis will earn him the S3 title.
Three wins on the season has Derek Crockett leading the way in the TaG Senior category. Already clinching the S1 championship, Crockett will need to finish inside the top-10 for a second championship on the year. The TaG Masters category sees a 26-point difference between Greg Watters and Angela Hannah. Watters has only one win, while Hannah is hoping to earn her first victory at the finale to help steal away the championship.
The TaG Junior category may come down to the final lap of the weekend as three drivers enter the event separated by just 37 points. Gregory Gerst stands atop the standings when counting the two drops, holding the position over Natalie Fenaroli and Kaylee Granberg. Gerst lead with two wins while Fenaroli has one to her credit. Granberg - who already clinched the S5 championship with four wins thus far - is looking for her first in TaG Junior competition. In the TaG 60 Cadet division, Coltan Brooks has clinched the championship with four victories in four starts.
On Saturday evening, the SCSC is planning for a bonfire and chili supper following the Prefinals (weather permitting) and they invite all competitors/family to attend.
