GOMEZ AND RUDOLPH CONFIRMED FOR FIRSTKART.COM AT SUPERNATS
"'05 S1 Champion and '06 RIGP Champion to contend for victory in Vegas"
Guelph, ON. -- November 2, 2006 -- First Kart North America and the FirstKart.com race team are pleased to announce that the '06 Rock Island Grand Prix champion Alan Rudolph and the '05 Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals S1 champion Logan Gomez will compete in the 10th annual SKUSA Supernationals for the FirstKart.com race team.
Phoenix resident Rudolph will pilot a First Kart as the multi-time champion will make the switch from the industry departed RBI brand. Rudolph, drove to victory in this year's Rock Island Grand Prix King of the Streets race with continued support from Bob Bondurant SuperKart School & Richard Buxman. Rudolph will continue to work with long time tuner Jesse Dunham.
"By having Alan, Jesse and Richard under the tent, we have increased our level of experience," explained Ventresca. "Rudolph is one of the best street circuit competitors out there and I have no doubt he will battle for the win."
Gomez, from Crown Point, Indiana, will be back behind the wheel of an SRA TM powered First Kart and will join tuner Bob Wilson as the duo fights for the crown. In 2005, the talented Gomez scored several top ten results in national level competition and after getting accustomed to the FirstKart.com program in a mid-season switch, drove to a top five result and the second fastest race lap in SuperPro while taking the victory in the S1 class in the ninth annual SuperNationals.
"We take great pride in our team and the drivers that are in our operation" stated Team Principal Tony Ventresca. "Logan Gomez is an incredible competitor and probably one of the most under-rated drivers in the paddock. Alan is one of the most recognized drivers with a very colorful resume. We are very excited to have them under the tent for this year's race."
