    Superkarts! USA regional and US Rotax Max Challenge competitors kick off fifth season of program at North Texas Kartways
    The 2016 season is underway for the Texas ProKart Challenge, hosting the opening event of year at the North Texas Karters facility. The Denton, Texas circuit welcomed racers of the P1 Promotions Superkarts! USA and Texas Barge & Boat Inc. Rotax Max Challenge programs to begin their championship chases. Racers battled around the 1/2-mile course in six race groups, featuring qualifying, two heat races and a final for each round following a full day of practice on Friday. Rain Saturday morning made things interesting prior to qualifying, but the weather turned around and was perfect for racing. The Friday night series kick-off dinner welcomed all the competitors, team members and racing families to begin the new era of the Texas ProKart Challenge, building a sense of community off-track in the hopes of making a positive impact on-track.

    TPKC 02 R1 Jordon Musser 300x200Jordon Musser bested the S2 Semi-Pro field in both days of action (Photo: few drivers earned perfect scores on the weekend to start off the 2016 Texas PKC season at the top. The weekend was a near sweep in the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto category with Jordon Musser leading much of the weekend while Austin Wilkins stole one of the feature wins. Musser, a former S4 Pro Tour champion, set fast time in the overall qualifying session Saturday, including edging out S1 Pro Stock Moto driver Jake French by 35 thousandths of a second. French won the two heat races over Musser and was leading the main event until the bumper bolt broke, ending his race prematurely. This handed the overall lead to Austin Wilkins after Musser drove off-track earlier in the race. Wilkins led the remainder of the laps to score the victory over Lawson Nagel. Musser fought his way back up to the third position over Hannah Williams and Erin Sims. Both French and Musser bounced back Sunday. Musser set fast time once again in qualifying, with French advancing to the top position in both heat races with Jordon running second overall. They went 1-2 for the entire 20 laps of the Final, each earning the victory in their respective categories. Wilkins was second behind Musser with Nagel crossing in third. Colin Long and Williams completed the top-five. French swept the S1 division as the lone competitor, as did Rod Clinard in the S4 Master Stock Moto category.
