eKartingNews.com United States Rotax Driver Rankings – 2013 Final Standings – Micro Max

Gonzales ends Micro career as top driver in 2013

The 2013 season has closed, and with that, come the annual final standings of the eKartingNews.com United States Rotax Driver Rankings. In cooperation with the MAXSpeed Group, EKN utilizes the USRMC National Point Standings program and combined with the ‘Driver Rankings’ system to formulate the top drivers from the season. Back in May, the program was outlined in a May 1 article with the system structure and the events to be included in the EKN US Rotax Driver Rankings.

The EKN United States Rotax Driver Rankings tabulates the best six results for each USRMC driver in each of the six Rotax categories, using a weighted point system that increases based on event participation. Now that the season is completed, EKN is happy to highlight the top-10 drivers in each category, while also recognizing the #1 driver in each class heading into the 2014 season.

Micro Max – Updated 02.03.14 / 2:45pm
The Micro Max division continues to grow throughout the country, with 20 more drivers included as part of the US Rotax Driver Rankings, after seeing a number graduate to the Mini Max level. Just 75 points separate the top-10, with five drivers returning and with eight different USRMC programs represented. Six of the drivers making the top-10 are set to move up to Mini Max in 2014.
