IRVINE, Calif. – K1 Speed, which operates the nation’s leading go-kart racing facilities, has joined JD Motorsports with Gary Keller as a key sponsor for Nationwide Series races at Auto Club Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway.

K1 Speed colors will debut on the team cars, driven by Landon Cassill and Jeffrey Earnhardt, in Saturday’s 300 at Auto Club Speedway in the fifth race of the Nationwide season. K1 also will be a team partner for the Nationwide race at Texas April 4.

K1 operates 20 kart racing locations, with more scheduled to open this year. K1 has tracks in California, Texas, Washington, Arizona, Illinois and Florida and plans expansion into Indiana, North Carolina, Colorado and Georgia.

K1, which is based in Irvine, Calif., has a track in Ontario, Calif., near Auto Club Speedway. The company’s tracks are indoors, and the karts are 100-percent emission-free electric vehicles.

Saturday’s race will mark K1’s first association with a national-series NASCAR team.

“We’re proud to have K1 come on board with us this week and at Texas,” said Johnny Davis, owner of JD Motorsports with Gary Keller. “A lot of NASCAR fans really enjoy riding and racing go-karts, so it’s a natural fit for them and for us. We’re looking forward to going racing with the K1 folks.”

Charlie Kimball is the first licensed driver with diabetes to win a race in the IZOD IndyCar Series. Kimball, who began racing go-karts at age 9, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2007 and was forced to abandon his racing program mid-season. Kimball returned to the cockpit the following year and claimed a podium finish in his first race back in the car.
Kimball continues to compete in one of the most competitive racing categories in the world, proving that living with diabetes does not have to restrict him from traveling at speeds of more than 200 miles an hour and fulfilling his dream.

Today Kimball drives the No. 83 car for Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing in the IZOD IndyCar Series and is the first licensed driver with diabetes in the history of INDYCAR. On August 4, 2013, Kimball again made history by becoming the first driver with diabetes to win an IndyCar race, when he captured the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio.

 Need for Speed Sweepstakes!

Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” captures the thrills of the game in a real-world setting. An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and ‘70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, “Need for Speed” taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.

The story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. In a last attempt to save his struggling garage, blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) — who with his team skillfully builds and races muscle cars on the side — reluctantly partners with wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). Just as a major sale to a car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poot) looks like it will save the business, a disastrous, unsanctioned race results in Dino framing Tobey for manslaughter.

Two years later and fresh out of prison, Tobey is set on revenge with plans to take down Dino in the high-stakes De Leon race — the Super Bowl of underground racing. To get there in time, Tobey must run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet, dodging cops coast-to-coast and dealing with fallout from a dangerous bounty Dino put on his car. With his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia as allies, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.

“Need for Speed” is presented by DreamWorks Pictures, produced by John Gatins, Pat O’Brien and Mark Sourian and directed by Scott Waugh. The screen story is by John Gatins and George Gatins and the screenplay is by George Gatins and John Gatins, based on the video game series created by Electonic Arts. The film releases in U.S. theaters on March 14, 2014.
