d’Orlando Brothers Ready for Action in USPKS Round Three at MRP
Michael and Nicholas d’Orlando are getting ready for USPKS racing action with the will of a Fighting Irish, and hope a pocket full of four-leaf clovers, as they head to Michiana Raceway Park (MRP) in South Bend, IN – home of the University of Notre Dame – for round three of the series this weekend. This is a track both drivers are no strangers to and are returning for the first time since 2013.
Fresh off his dominating performance & win at the Rotax Shootout in Kershaw, SC, Nicholas will be looking to gain some ground in the Mini ROK points standings as he currently sits third.
“I can’t wait to race this weekend at MRP,” said Nicholas. “I’ve had some great results here in the past. We had a great kart in Kershaw finishing first and I look for us to have a strong kart as well this weekend. I just want to keep doing what we are doing running up front and to have the opportunity to win.”
Michael heads into Michiana Raceway Park in fifth in Leopard 125 Junior standings and is looking to gain some more ground. Michael earned his first podium finish in the Junior ranks in round two of USPKS at the US Air Motorsports in Shawano, WI and he’s confident they have the ability for another strong finish this weekend.
“I am looking forward to returning to MRP,” said Michael. “I had some great results here in the past in the Cadet ranks and am excited to get back there in Junior. We’ve been getting closer and closer to my first win in Junior and after only a few short months in this class, we’ve been making great progress.”
Upon completion of the USPKS race at MRP this weekend, Michael and Nicholas will head straight to Kershaw, SC with their race team KoeneUSA, for the 2015 US Rotax Grand Nationals.
