Industry News: Supertune USA Claims a Pair of National Championships
Canadian Karting and Pan-American Champions
Quietly progressing through the 2013 racing season, Supertune USA continued to rack up race wins and championships. Flexing their muscles at the 2013 Florida Winter Tour, the reputable engine building company most recently secured the Rotax Mini Max Pan-American Championship with Birel driver Aiden Keel as well as a dominant performance at the Canadian Karting Championships in Rotax Junior with Devlin DeFrancesco.
“We have been working hard in 2013, just being quiet about it,” explained Supertune USA’s Ben Cruttenden. “We have continued to produce engines that allow our drivers to run at the front of the field and give them a chance to stand atop the podium in North America. It has been a great season.”
Providing power for DeFrancesco north of the border in Canada, the Supertune USA powered driver would go on to take the pole position, three heat race wins and prefinal victory. Falling back to seventh on the start of the main event, DeFrancesco utilized his powerplant to drive back to the front of the field and be the first to the checkers.
Back in the United States, it was Aiden Keel who was the Supertune USA pilot to stand atop the box at an international event. Taking to the new NOLA Karting facility in New Orleans, Louisiana, Keel ran at the pointy end of a talented Mini Max category eventually rising to the challenge in the main event securing the Pan-American Challenge title and his invitation to the Rotax Micro & Mini Invitational.
Supertune USA will now shift their focus to the upcoming Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals (RMCGF) and Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals. Traveling to the events to support Supertune USA drivers and customers, Cruttenden will provide trackside service to ensure his drivers are at the front of the field.
Cruttenden continued, “We will be putting a major effort into the SuperNationals as well as the upcoming 2014 Florida Winter Tour. We are the reigning Rotax Junior champions and want to build on that success.”
With engines available in Rotax as well as Mini Rok categories, Supertune USA urges you to call and reserve your engine today.
