October 19, 1998 - La Mesa, CA Robby Mott Racing, manufacturer of the Ribtect Vest, has announced their sponsorship of the Ribtect Results Tent for the 1998 Superkarts! USA SuperNationals, Nov. 13-15 at the Las Vegas Karting Center. The Ribtect Results Tent will be the place to hang out in the shade and find out who's doing what out on the circuit. Results from SKUSA's AMB timing system will be posted for all practice, qualifying, and race sessions. Robby Mott will be there to get the word out about the amazing protection provided by the Ribtect Vest, and to hand out stacks of trick Ribtect stickers!

On the market since only Spring of this year, the Ribtect Vest has received much acclaim from drivers who have had their races saved by eliminating the pain of injured ribs. As part of an existing promotion with SKUSA, five Ribtect Vests have been available as loaners for the entire Midwest Pro Tour, as well as special events. Joe Janowski, regular SKUSA fast guy, recently became the first ever "King of the Streets" at the King of the Streets Nationals in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, while wearing a Ribtect Vest.

"The track was very fast, and somewhat rough in a few places. By Sunday morning, my ribs had taken some pretty serious shots, and I didn't think I had a chance at the feature win." stated Janowski. "Then I remembered that SKUSA carried Ribtect Vests in their trailer, so I decided to try one out. Wearing the Ribtect let me concentrate on beating some of the very best shifter drivers around, and not on the beating that my ribs could have been taking."

At another recent race, the '98 Tustin Thunder, Ribtect-protected drivers swept the 125cc Pro Shifter podium: 1st Place - Darren Elliott, 2nd Place - Jimmy Didier, 3rd Place - Ryan Howe
