A-Main: The winner for 1st place podium goes to Spencer Mayeda. Spencer beat out 45 competitive racers to take top honor in todays GP2 Season Premier, Super Track Event. With Spencer taking a commanding lead for 1st place, the real race was between 2nd, 3rd, and 4h place racers. With the rest of the race group scattered amongst each other. Overall, the racers ran a clean race with very few incidences of bumping or slamming into walls.
B-Main: This was an entertaining race to watch, and tonights audience clearly enjoyed watching the racers compete. Our track staff did a good job in notify drivers that were violating our no-bumping rule, but driver, Olivia Ma, clearly must of had a brief laps in following our rules when she almost took out half of the racers going into Schumacher corner. No incidences of injury came of Olivia’s mistake in judgement.
C-Main: this was another fun filled race that made us cheer. Drivers Steve Butscher, Rishabh Shuklla, and Ryan Husband faught it our for a 1,2,3 podium finish. These 3 drivers were not making it easy to move in positions. With there tactical driving and constant focus, lead all three to the podium finish line.
D-Main: Matt Carpenter lead the race from start to finish. It seemed that the group would challenge each other towards the beginning of the race, but as the race moved on, all drivers had a 1 or 2 car length gap between each other. Still an all around clean and fun race, but not much position changes.

From the producer of Wedding Crashers – written and directed by and starring comic talent Dax Shepard (NBC’s “Parenthood”) HIT AND RUN is the story of Charlie Bronson (Shepard), a nice guy with a questionable past who risks everything when he busts out of the witness protection program to deliver his fiancé (Kristen Bell) to Los Angeles to seize a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Their road trip grows awkwardly complicated, when they are chased by the feds (led by Tom Arnold) … and increasingly dangerous, when Charlie’s former pals, a band of gangsters (led by Bradley Cooper), enter the fray.

What do you know… KC Cook takes the 1st place podium in K1 Speed Irvine’s Challenge GP Season Premier. KC as we know was a amazing competitor last season and proves once again to be another threat this season. But it was a tough battle with Spencer (the Dispencer) rubbing bumpers during the entire race. Paul Ciralli who finished out 3rd place was doing everthing he could to catch up, but those 2 drivers kept pulling away from the rest of the pack. Ultimately KC takes the win in a nail biter.
This was another fun filled race that made us cheer at the antisipation of Austin Yzaguirre and Elie Shline and of course or Championship points winner last season Nicholas Haye. These 3 drivers were not making it easy to move in positions. With there tactical driving and constant focus, lead all three to the podium finish line.
Will Dobrenen, Ryan MacBeth, and Max Shline demonstrated excellence under pressure. Not as seasoned and some of our other drivers, they are on the pursuit to that A main arena. With some hard throttling and some last minute braking, these 3 warped around the track at light speed. A Very new line up which is always great to see on the podium. We look forward to seeing them next round for the next challenge.
