PSL KARTING RETURNS TO AMERICA FOR STARS EASTERN FINALE
Canadian team gears up for Stars of Karting division championship finale in Wisconsin
TROIS-RIVIERES, QUEBEC (July 9, 2008) --Montreal-based PSL Karting is anxious to make their return to the United States after nearly a month long layover from the Snap-on Stars of Karting Presented by IndyCar Series. Over the past five weeks, the squad's drivers have spent countless hours aboard their CRG machines to keep their edge while the PSL staff has gone over all of the data they have collected throughout the year to prepare for the Eastern Division finale, which is set for this coming weekend at USA International Raceway in Shawano, WI. PSL will have a total of nine pilots will be under the tent in Wisconsin, all looking to stand on top of the podium come Sunday.
With two rounds in the books toward the Eastern Division championship, lead ICC driver Fritz Leesmann has given PSL its best shot at a crown. The Kohilo Racing-supported driver currently sits third in the Eastern standings, just 43 points out of first with two finals in Shawano to count toward the championship. As unpredictable as the ICC division has been, a strong weekend from the reigning Florida Winter Tour champion could put him and PSL on top of the standings by the end of weekend.
Joining the Californian in the ICC category will be Josh Schreiber and Tom Cadieux, both of whom recently moved into the top-20 in the eKartingNews.com ICC Driver Rankings. ICC rookie Jacob Neal (by way of PCH Motorsports) will also be under the tent. Neal showed well with PSL at the Mazda Race of the Americas in Indiana last month and is focused on continuing that momentum. Moving from the ICC division to the new TaG ICC category will be Corey Rossman. The Floridian is gaining experience in his first year on the national scene and will hope to bring in a top-five run in the lone PSL entry in the spec shifter class.
Making a comeback to PSL Karting for this event will be Canadian Max Riddle in the TaG class. The True North Motorsports driver has run the TaG ICC category this season with a different team and will return to the CRG chassis in Stars TaG, where he finished 16th in the 2007 standings thanks to a few top-10 finishes on the year. Joining Riddle will be Mexican Rudy Camarillo, making his first Stars of Karting start after successful runs in the competitive Rotax Senior division at the Florida Winter Tour.
Two drivers will fly the PSL colors in the JICA division this weekend with Tommy Beshro and Jordan Jadallah at the wheel. Beshro has shown that he has the speed capable of running with the front group, however, he has been plagued with issues that have regularly dropping him back in the field. This weekend, he will look to bring good luck with him to boost him into the top-10 of the standings. Jadallah, supported by Kohilo Racing, will make the long journey from California as the first-year Stars pilot and JICA rookie will look to gain more experience at the Eastern finale.
