The K1 Speed indoor go kart racing facility in Irvine, California held their third Reverse Challenge GP last week. The racing action is heating up on Irvine’s Super-Track layout as many of the returning competitor’s are keeping their qualifying times close. Toby Rodriguez would take the pole position in the A main with a qualifying time of 43.69 seconds. Michael Arnold would start out in second place with a qualifying time of 44.16 seconds, followed by Khalifa Alasiri qualified in third with a time of 44.29 seconds. At the start of the race the top 3 drivers kept things close with Challenge GP regular John Tanaka sitting in 4th waiting to make his move. John was able to catch Khalifa and take the third spot on the podium. Michael would end up staying in second, and Toby stayed on top of the entire race to take home first.
The B main had just as much excitement, which included Pro Import Drag racing icon Ed Bergenholtz, which in recent years, has turned his motor-sports efforts towards drift racing and Redline Time Attack events. Ed would show everyone that he was right at home in K1 Speeds electric racing karts by taking the pole position for the B main with a qualifying time of 44.73 seconds which he would go wire to wire and end up taking the top spot on the podium. He was followed by Michael Tekstra, and Jonathan Wright to round out the top 3.
