Red Line Oil Karting Championship Enters Summer with Round 4 on June 15

Free pit pass to all Dads of RLOKC drivers

Red Line Oil Karting Championship logoThe Red Line Oil Series now enters the Summer portion of the 2014 season with the first of the three summer races on June 15 at the Simraceway International kart track at Sonoma Raceway.  With race being held on Fathers day RLOKC will offer a free pit pass to any father of a driver entered in this weekend’s race! The track layout will be the Reverse Sprint track with the GoPro feature class being the Rotax Mini Max class.

This GoPro feature should be a great race!  The Mini Max class has become one of the most competitive classes in the last 4 years.  With three different winners in the first three races (Colin Mullan, Bryson Lew and Jacob Hudson) .Points leader Clayton Williams and last years class runner up Matteo Sandoval both in search of their first feature win, there are several drivers that have the speed and winning pace to take this month’s GoPro feature.

Some of the other interesting races to watch; Senior Rotax is shaping up to be a head to head duel between Zach Pettinicchi and Pablo Carballedo.  In the Rotax Masters class, Scott Ripslinger has not won a feature this year, but he has a solid lead in points ahead of last months winner Kelly Heil.  In the Pro Stock class, Pro Stock rookie Daniel De La Calle has two wins and a points lead over Cabot Bigham and Hunter Pickett.  In the Rotax Micro Max class, Grant Langon took his first win of the year last month and now holds a sold lead over Garrette Randolph Jr and Ethan Tavares.
