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

Team USA driver Luke Selliken uses Can-Am championship to claim top spot

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.

Junior Max
Total numbers for the year were very similar with about 170 drivers taking part in the USRMC program for 2013. This year’s top-10 is all new, showing the growth of young talent that continues to develop in the United States. Last year’s number one Oliver Askew carried his momentum into what was possible one of the best seasons for a driver – going on to win the US Rotax Grand Nationals and Pan-Am Challenge while finishing third in the world at the Rotax Grand Finals. Speaking of world champions, among the top-10 is the first American Rotax Grand Finals winner – Juan Manuel Correa. Seven different USRMC programs are represented, with Can-Am, Jet Karting and Burger King Rotax Challenges boasting two drivers each.
