Evolving program continues to grow in both karting and cars
With the karting community making the annual trip to Las Vegas, the Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals is set to commence this Wednesday and half of the Formula 4 United States Championship Powered by Honda 2018 national team champion Crosslink Competition will be there in full force. Entering a strong contingent of drivers, including F4 U.S. rookie stand-out Joshua Car, the Dallas, Texas outfit will bring seven drivers from four different countries competing in four different classes to Sin City.
"We may not have the biggest team in the paddock but we are entering Las Vegas with success on our mind," explained Team Manager Sean Owens. "We have drivers from all over the world and are excited to hit the track tomorrow but more importantly, look forward to the wheel-to-wheel action and Super Sunday!"
Piloting the OTK Exprit chassis, three drivers will enter the sold-out X30 Senior category. While speed will be necessary to top the podium blocks at the event conclusion, drivers will also need to qualify well and make it through the heat races unscathed. Australian Joshua Car, American Christopher Martin, and American-Peruvian Alejandro Jaramillo will all enter the 80+ strong driver field and fly the Crosslink Competition colors in X30 Senior.
Two drivers will fly the Crosslink Competition colors in the X30 Master ranks as veteran SuperNationals driver Armando Watson makes the trip from Peru to join forces with Miguel Mier. Adrian Cruz will try his hand in X30 Junior while Reilly Cann enters the S2 class.
Owens added, "Our karting outfit is the perfect program to run alongside our F3 and F4 programs. We are continually evolving to build our own internal ladder to assist drivers in their transition through the karting ranks and into affordable level open-wheel racing."
Any drivers interested in speaking to Crosslink Competition about their F3 Americas Championship Powered by Honda or F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda programs are asked to find Sean Owens trackside in Las Vegas.
Drivers will hit the track Wed., Nov. 14 for official practice with qualifying and heat races on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Pending heat race and last chance qualifier results, Super Sunday is one of the biggest karting days of the year, as champions of SuperNationals 22 will be crowned.
