Energy Corse Making Winning Strides in the United States

New European Race Team Chassis is Showcased by Surging Jak Crawford

Outnumbered by other brands in cadet races across the United States karting scene, the recent success rate of Energy Corse with its “Storm” Cadet European race team chassis is starting to turn karting heads.

Texan pilot Jak Crawford has been fielding his new Storm chassis since late Spring and has garnered a fifty percent win rate at five big national races and one big regional race in California.  If you consider two of the three non wins included engine issues and another involved Crawford’s worst career crash than aforementioned win rate is nothing short of astonishing.  Crawford is the only national-level USA driver on the new Energy chassis with other individual brands commanding 25-50+% of race entries.

From the West Coast to the East Coast whether on MG Tires or Mojo Tires, the new Energy chassis works effectively and easily. At Crawford’s recent Cold Stone United States Rotax Max Challenge Grand Nationals win in the Micro Max category, Jak’s Energy team only made one front end adjustment all weekend long, but otherwise never touched the chassis.  The championship chassis more than made up in the corners for an “out-motored” Crawford.

“It is the best cadet chassis I have ever built and it can dominate races,” says Mick Panigada. Panigada continued, “This is a serious racing chassis and my Euro race team secrets are baked into its production.” The European racing team results are phenomenal for any brand but especially a small brand.

Jak Crawford will join the Energy racing team in Italy for multiple races this October fielding the same Storm chassis that he races in the states.  In November at the Superkarts USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals the ten-year-old Crawford will attempt to take his 2014 SuperNationals podium finish a few steps higher as he and his Energy chassis will be a clear favorite to win.  The Energy factory race team will be present in Las Vegas for support of anyone fielding a new Storm chassis.
