Results: ProKart West Challenge // Round 1
We had a great turnout for the Inaugural ProKart West Challenge this past Sunday night at K1 Speed Irvine.
Close to 40 drivers participated in the first round with some familiar faces from Northern and Southern California centers. It was a hard fought battle but it was down to the last eight drivers to see who can take the first round. With Kc Cook leading the pack in the A-Main he held onto the lead in spite of Charles Eichlin’s battle for position. Charles was spun out by Jarrod Woolard in the middle of the race but held onto 2nd with Taylor Hays following him at 3rd. The boys from CalSpeed brought their A game that night taking the podium sweep.
“This past Sunday, K1 Speed held the inaugural Pro Kart West Challenge at the Irvine location. Roughly 30 drivers made it out to try and take the top step and the $250 check home. Was fortunate enough to hold off hard charging Charles Eichlin for the win!! Taylor Hays taking 3rd to complete an all CalSpeed Karting Podium. Great run guys! Big thanks to K1 Speed Irvine, employees, and management for running the event. Also to Falken Tire, Mothers Polishes, K&N Filters, Exotics Racing, and K1 Speed for the swag bags!” – Kc Cook
