S5 PILOT AJ MYERS SET TO COMPETE WITH TONY KART EAST AT SUPERNATIONALS
"Several more team announcements coming soon"
Indianapolis, Indiana. -- October 6, 2009 -- Tony Kart East is pleased to welcome Florida pilot AJ Myers to their 2009 Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals team. Competing in the S5 division, Myers, who is an avid Rotax Junior competitor in the Sunshine State, will look to run at the front of the field in his first SuperNationals experience during the event scheduled from November 18th -- 22nd, 2009.
"AJ is front runner in the Rotax class in Florida and is a strong competitor," stated Tony Kart East's Director of Operations Mike Maurini. "I have had the opportunity to be under the same tent as AJ and his father during the 2008 Rotax Grand Nationals where AJ became the Rotax Mini Max US National champion. That same season AJ was the North Florida Karting Series Mini Max Champion as well. The switch to the shifter platform will not be a problem for AJ, and I am confident that he will have a strong event in Las Vegas."
By utilizing an older S5 motor and chassis in Florida, Myers has been to the track several times in preparation for the Super Bowl of karting. Trading in his Rotax powered chassis, Myers was grabbing gears in his gearbox kart as he looks to complete several test days before his cross country trek to Las Vegas for the 13th edition of the famed SuperNationals.
"I am excited and nervous about the race in Las Vegas," stated the 13-year-old driver. "The SuperNationals is something that I see and read about on the internet every year. To have the chance to compete in Las Vegas is extremely exciting, not to mention to watch some of the best karting drivers around the world."
Tony Kart East is continuing to offer arrive and drive opportunities for the SKUSA SuperNationals as well as kart purchase deals for drivers looking to be aboard a Tony Kart. Tony Kart East is also continuing to offer kart transportation services to Las Vegas for any driver on any kart brand. Tony Kart East will have several more driver announcements in the coming weeks.
The Tony Kart East program will also begin to ramp up speed towards the 2010 racing season. With a commitment to compete in the Florida Winter Tour, Championship Karting International, World Karting Association Manufacturer's Cup and SKUSA Pro Tour, Tony Kart East will be working hard to put together a winning team for the 2010 racing season.
