STARS OF KARTING AWARDS CLUB RACERS

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE, WA - (February 10, 2009) - The Snap-on Stars of Karting Series is pleased to announced the presentation of special event discounts for the East Division opener to the podium finishers in the Ocala Gran Prix Spring/Summer Race #1 TaG Senior category. Club members Hunter Short, Laurie Krause and Nathaniel Dewitt will receive discounts on tires, pit spaces and entry fees for the first event, which takes place on March 5 - 8, 2009.

Taking the victory at this past weekend's OGP event was Hunter Short and along with the points lead, Hunter will receive a $100 Bridgestone tire voucher from Grand Products, free entry to the TaG Senior division at the Ocala Gran Prix event, as well as a free pit space for his trailer and equipment. Joining Hunter on the podium in the race was runner-up Laurie Krause. The Florida area resident will receive a free pit space and a 50% discount on race registration, while third place finisher Nathaniel Dewitt will also receive a 50% discount on the first event's registration.

Focusing on the club's popular Touch and Go classes, the top three podium finishers in the TaG Senior division have been offered the above mentioned sponsorship packages to participate in the Snap-on Stars of Karting Eastern division event.

"This program was put in place to help the club level karter compete in a national level event," explained Snap-on Stars of Karting Series President Alan Rudolph. "I'm an avid supporter of karting from the entry level participants to the top level national pilots and I will offer advice and do whatever is possible to help them advance their careers. We are looking to continue this program with each facility hosting a Stars of Karting event on the 2009 calendar in an effort to help out the loyal series participants as we begin the national championship."

In order to provide OGP drivers with this amazing opportunity, the Snap-on Stars of Karting Series has offered these awards only to TaG Senior competitors who had competed in a maximum of one Snap-on Stars of Karting Series event in the past three seasons.

"This is a great thing for our club members," stated Ocala Gran Prix's Kyle Kraus. "I hope that our club members will take advantage of the opportunity. We would also like to invite all other club members and karting enthusiasts out to OGP on March 5 - 8 to take in the action."

In other Snap-on Stars of Karting Series news, membership and race entry forms are available via the Stars of Karting website. Drivers who competed in the '08 National Championship and wish to retain their competition number must register with the Snap-on Stars of Karting Series by February 15, 2009. Drivers and teams looking to receive a discount on event registration can do so by registering for the complete series. In addition, any Snap-on Stars of Karting Series driver participating in two classes will receive a rather substantial discount on the cost of registration for the second competition class.
