BRCKS Race 8

Wampum, PA – After more than a month off, the BeaveRun Championship Karting Series returned to action with the first of four August races. While it was the eighth race of the season, it was the first for several new and returning drivers.

 

The JW’s Eurotech TAG class saw a nice rebound in kart counts as the new and returning drivers pushed the entry list to fourteen despite several regulars not running due to other race commitments.  Kyle Smith scored yet another win in his short TAG career followed by teammate Roby Bujdoso, just .127 seconds behind.  Daniel Hewes rounded out the podium.

 

Matching the TAG turnout was the Cook Racing Engines Yamaha Junior Can class with fourteen entries.  The action was close and exciting as always with nine drivers running in the 1:01 range.  Nick Rivellini returned to his early season form picking up both the Pole and Prefinal win followed by Trent Walko and Andy Schlosser in each session.  Schlosser waited on the back bumper of the leaders until the closing laps, passing both Walko and then Rivellini at the White Flag.  Rivellini pulled off the pass of the day braking late in to Turn 3 though to surprise Schlosser and reclaim the lead and hold on for the win to sweep the day!

 

Madison Campeau, another of the crop of 2010 CRP Racing Kid Kart Rookies, won her first race in just her third try! Madison had the perfect day setting fast time in Qualifying and winning the Prefinal as well as the Final.  Christopher Moul had a great run to take second by less than .15 over Beau Power.  Summer Dodson and Carson Fitzgerald finished fourth and fifth respectively.

 

Just four entries turned out for the Checkered Motorsports Yamaha Sportsman class but the action at the front was some of the best of the year. Nick Luedeke and Elijah Ciotti finished 1-2 in the Prefinal and then put on a show in the final swapping the lead numerous times before Ciotti prevailed at the line by just .039 seconds! Ryan Finney picked up the third spot.

 

The J3 Competition Cadet Final was all Nick Luedeke in the end as he powered to a rare runaway win in the normally close class, taking the checkered flag by more than five seconds ahead of runner-up Leo Stoia. O.P. Kinos was strong all day eventually picking up the third place spot. Jacob Todd won the Turn1 ProSports Cadet Novice class followed by Nathan Polacek, Dillon Fitzgerald and Teige Townsend who made his karting debut.

 

For the third week in a row Derek White and Harry McElhaney topped the Metric Screw & Fastener Senior Yamaha race.  Bob Seidel was the fastest of Senior Yamaha Supercan entries, earning the third place overall.  Randy D’Amato pulled double duty again, finishing fifth in his Yamaha and then first in the Bergfelt Racing Clone Class.

 

Next on the karting agenda is a “BeaveRun Double” featuring a practice on Friday followed by two complete days of racing from August 13-15. A change has been made to the previously published schedule - the race format for Saturday August 14th will be the conventional, full track layout with qualifying.  Sunday August 15th calls for the standard track configuration with the heat race format. There will be some minor changes to the heat race format rules to make for a safer, more efficient race day program.

BRCKS Races 6 & 7 PR

Wampum, PA – The Yamaha Junior Can class has proven to be very strong at BeaveRun in 2010 with the largest kart counts and most competitive fields. Rounds six and seven did not disappoint as 17 and 16 karts respectively filled the grid for two days of action featuring a standard qualifying format on Saturday and a Heat Race format on Sunday.

 

Andy Schlosser broke through for his first feature win of the season with a dominating performance on Saturday setting fast time in practice, qualifying second, winning the prefinal and closing out with a flag to flag win in the final. Schlosser held off tough competition though as Ayrton Climo and Tommy Frazier crossed the line on his back bumper with just over .3 seconds separating the three Turn1 ProSports/Birel teammates.

 

While it was a six year wait for the first win for the Sewickley, PA native, the second win followed less than 24 hours later. Schlosser again set fast time in practice but it was Ayrton Mutagaana and Tommy Frazier prevailing in two action packed heat races. Mutagaana earned the Pole position and pulled out to an early lead in the final but with dark clouds rolling in Schlosser made his move for the lead at the half way point and held on to take the checkered flag just as the raindrops started.

 

While the TAG fields were smaller than usual for the weekend, the racing was still close and exciting as always.  Saturday featured a trio of Checkered Motorsports/PCR teammates topping qualifying as Kyle Knecht set fast time followed by Roby Bujdoso and Kyle Smith. In just his second weekend of TAG racing, Smith picked up the heat win but it was Maryland’s Daniel Hewes coming from the second row to take the lead on lap two of the feature and hold on for the win.

 

Smith and Bujdoso split the heat race wins setting up a final that saw them sharing the front row.  Bujdoso started the race on pole but Smith grabbed the early lead and Hewes shortly after taking over second.  Bujdoso picked up the pace in the second half of the race though eventually moving in to the lead with two to go and taking the unofficial win.  Bujdoso did not clear the Tech area though, handing Smith his second win in just three starts in TAG.  Hewes and Michael Burton, who recently joined the TAG ranks, rounded out the Podium.

 

Trent Tucker set the pace on both days in Kid Karts as has been the case throughout the 2010 season.  Tucker picked up the win in Race #6 followed by Ayden Sprague and Christopher Moul.  Summer Dodson and Sara Castles rounded out the top five.  Sunday proved to be an interesting day though as Bo Power picked up his first win of the season despite being the only kart to not finish the race.  The rest of the field suffered a variety of DQ’s at the scales or at the hands of Tech.

 

Derek White and Harry McElhaney finished 1-2 in the Metric Screw & Fastener Senior Yamaha race repeating the previous week’s results.  Ironman Randy D’Amato who can be found in TAG, Yamaha and/or Clone classes on any given weekend rounded out the top three each day.

 

The Sportsman ranks provided their fair share of excitement as always on Saturday with three different racers officially leading the Cadet final and an untold number of lead exchanges throughout the race.  Nick Luedeke started from the Pole and lead early on but dropped as far as fifth by mid race. The top five karts continued to swap positions until Luedeke made his bid to regain the lead with two laps to go.  Leo Stoia was runner-up with Eli Ciotti prevailing over a battle for third featuring four karts separated by three tenths of a second.

 

Ciotti and James Todd won their respective Yamaha Sportsman and Cadet Novice races in the combined feature in another wild finish.  Todd distanced himself from the remainder of the Cadet Novice group early on and settled in behind the four Yamaha Sportsman racers battling for their race lead.  With just over a lap to go though Stoia and Kaden Harter made light contact not only allowing Ciotti to pull away for the win but forcing Todd to make a decision to drive by the duo.  A lap later the rookie pulled ahead for the race win as well as the class win.

 

Sunday’s races saw O.P. Kinos bring home a heat race win along with teammate Stoia. The duo finished 1-2 in the final as well with Stoia finishing ahead of Kinos followed by Luedeke rounding out the top three. 

 

For Sunday, the Yamaha Sportsman and Cadet Novice classes were split in to two rungroups.  Alex Lester ran a strong race to win the Cadet Novice race followed by David Kalb and Jacob Todd.  Stoia doubled up on his Cadet feature win by pulling down the Yamaha Sportsman victory as well followed by Harter and Luedeke.

 

 

The Season Championships could well be decided in the month of August which features four races kicking off on August 1st followed by races on the 14th, 15th and 29th!   The August 1 race is a standard clockwise direction event with the qualifying format. The remaining three races are scheduled to feature a few alternative layouts and formats.  This will be discussed further at the drivers meeting for the August 1 race.  If you would like your opinions heard on the remaining races, please plan to attend the race on August 1!

Wampum, PA – Leo Stoia scored a double win in the fifth round of the BeaveRun Championship Karting Series, picking up wins in both the J3 Competition Cadet and Checkered Motorsports Yamaha Sportsman classes.  Nick Luedeke brought home runner-up honors in both classes, setting fast time by more than two tenths of a second in each race. Derren Gregory and Ryan Finney rounded out the podium in the respective classes.

 

Trent Tucker and Christopher Moul finished 1-2 yet again in the CRP Racing Kid Kart class while newcomer Madison Campeau came home third in just her second race.

 

Making it a family sweep was Trevor Tucker, Trent’s older brother, who won the Turn1 ProSports Cadet Novice race with Andrew Collins and Alex Lester close behind as all three racers finished within 1.2 seconds of each other.

 

The Cook Racing Engines Yamaha Junior Can class saw 15 entries, the largest turnout of the day, as it continues to be one the best supported in the Series. Jacob Donald scored a runaway victory while the second through fifth place karts waged a race long battle for runner-up honors.  Tommy Frazier beat Trent Walko to the line by just five hundredths of a second for the Junior rookie’s best finish of the year.  Walko charged from the tail of the field after a Heat Race crash scoring an impressive third place finish.

 

Kyle Smith picked up the win in the JW’s Eurotech TAG race following John Flucker IV’s disqualification for an airbox coming off during the race.  Flucker set fast time by .4 seconds and dominated the race after an early race tangle with Brian McHattie for the lead left the lone DB Motorsports TAG Masters entrant on the sideline. Smith’s win was in his first race in the TAG class. Jen Williams and Roby Bujdoso rounded out the top three.

 

Derek White and Harry McElhaney finished 1-2 in the Metric Screw & Fastener Senior Yamaha race.  John Burton, the lone Yamaha Senior Can entrant on the day finished third.  Michael Milanovich was the lone Bergfelt Racing Clone entrant of the day as the threatening skies hampered the turnout for the new class.

 

The weekend of June 26 & 27 will feature another BeaveRun Double as the BRCKS hosts rounds 6 & 7 on the Wilson Circuit. The Alternate Configuration event scheduled for Saturday has been changed to a standard layout race featuring a traditional qualifying format while Sunday’s race will offer the Heat Race format. Random draw will determine the grid for the first Heat Race followed by a second Heat Race with the field inverted.  The Final order is set by the combined results from the two Heat Races.

BRCKS Races 1 & 2 PR

Wampum, PA – BeaveRun Championship Karting Series kicked off the 2010 season with two successful rounds of racing despite weather and scheduling challenges.  A soggy April in Western Pennsylvania culminated with a rain soaked opening race followed by the first, and last, Mothers Day race.

 

A solid contingent of racers from a five state areas still turned out for the opening rounds however as kart counts of 63 and 57 entries respectively represented more than a 15% increase in entries over the 2009 opener. The growing Yamaha Junior Can class drew the largest fields both days with 17 & 15 entries followed close by TAG and Cadet averaging 13 entries each, historically BeaveRun’s two strongest classes.

 

Nick Rivellini was the star of the first two events, carving his way through the Yamaha Junior Can field from a tenth place starting position to win in the rain in Race 1.  The Virginia driver then followed up with a Pre-final & Final sweep in round two that included a duel with Connor Gawry where the duo traded over/under passes for four straight laps before Rivellini emerged the winner.    Sewickley, PA’s Andy Schlosser also made a strong move forward in the rain to finish third on a last lap pass after qualifying tenth.

 

The Sportsman ranks came down to a three way clash of northeast Ohio based racers in most of the Cadet and Yamaha Sportsman classes as Leo Stoia brought home three wins (2 in cadet, 1 in Yamaha) and Kaden Harter the other as the two battled with Nick Luedeke (four top 3’s) both days. The highlight came in the second Yamaha race where Stoia and Harter swapped the lead four times in the final three laps with Stoia coming out on top by just .09 seconds at the end. James Todd and Andrew Collins split a pair of wins in the Cadet Novice class as well.

 

The TAG class was the exception to the rule in the first two weeks as three different drivers made up the podium each race.  Maryland’s Daniel Hewes scored the win in the rain at the opening race while Robby Bujdoso brought home the victory in Race 2. TAG Masters driver Brian McHattie finished a strong second in Race 2 despite racing at the 30 pound heavier Masters weight.

 

Two relatively new classes to BeaveRun, Yamaha Sportsman and 4-Cycle Clone, are proving to be worthwhile additions while the Kid Kart class is showing signs of rebounding as well with several new families getting their first taste of karting. Rookie Kid Kart racer Trent Tucker topped the time sheets in both events while Christopher Moul scored a second and a third. Lady racers Savannah Fitzgerald (2nd) and Sara Castles (3rd) also reached the podium. James Stoicovy, Mike Milanovich and Josh Bergfelt took home the top three spots in the Clone class both days.

 

The new tech initiatives put in place for the 2010 season have already proved there worth as several warnings and disqualifications have helped to tighten up a formerly loose set of rules.  Most notably though has been the issue with suspected tire prepping. With a database of durometer readings taken across several classes under similar conditions an acceptable range is established. Any reading outside of this established range can be disqualified. Tires must be within the acceptable range or they are not legal, eliminating the need to prove tire prepping. This system already proved effective with a disqualification in Race 2 due to excessively low durometer readings.

 

The next event in the BeaveRun Championship Karting Series is a double race weekend May 22 & 23 that will also include a full day of practice on Friday May 21st. The Saturday portion of the program will feature racing in the standard clockwise direction followed by counter-clockwise practice in preparation for a Reverse Direction Race on Sunday.

BRCKS Races 3 & 4 PR

Wampum, PA – The first “BeaveRun Double” of the 2010 BRCKS season is in the books and Mother Nature once again played a hand in the results. Saturday’s races were run in steady wet conditions as the rains came early and stayed throughout the day.  Sunday saw better weather but a different twist was in the plans - the first reverse direction race of the season. Through four rounds the Series has enjoyed more than sixty karts per race on average despite the weather woes.

 

Trent Tucker lead the way both days in the CRP Racing Kid Kart class as he continued his winning streak bringing home the top spot honors in four straight races.  The karting rookie was followed to the line by Christopher Moul who scored second and third place finishes over the two race weekend. Also with top three runs were Braedon Scott with a third on Saturday and Ayden Sprague second on Sunday.  The Kid Kart racers continue to impress in their first year as a regular Championship class.  Each race day has seen at least one new driver to the series in this class with several additional new racers planning their debut in the coming weeks.

 

The JW’s Eurotech TAG class saw Roby Bujdoso run his winning streak to three straight races following a sweep of the weekend activities.  The Hookstown, PA father/son duo of John Flucker III & IV finished third and second respectively in the Saturday downpour while the younger Flucker returned to the podium with another second place finish on Sunday.  Opening weekend winner Daniel Hewes recovered from a blown engine on Saturday to hold down a third place finish on Sunday.

 

Cook Racing Engines Yamaha Junior Supercan racers continued to demonstrate some of the closest and most exciting racing in the series.  Nick Rivellini won his third straight race, beating Trent Walko to the line by less than .08 seconds in the rain.  Walko broke Rivellini’s spell on Sunday however winning his first race of the year followed by Tyler Brzeczkowski and Ayrton Climo who both advanced a position with a move to the inside of Rivellini on the last turn of the final lap. Climo also finished third on Saturday.

 

Kaden Harter and Leo Stoia finished the Checkered Motorsports Yamaha Sportsman race in the top two spots each day followed by Ryan Finney on Saturday and Elijah Ciotti on Sunday.  This growing class typically offers the same close racing as the Cadet class however Harter dominated the events this time around, beating the field by eight and ten second gaps respectively.

 

Another of the new classes for the 2010 season, the Bergfelt Racing Clone Class, again saw new racers and karts as the field continues to grow.  Jim Stoicovy won in both the rain and the dry followed by Mike Milanovich in second on Saturday, his third second place finish in a row.  John Ciraula rounded out the podium on Saturday in his very first race while two BeaveRun veterans running their first Clone races scored second and third spots on Sunday – TAG and Yamaha regular Randy D’Amato and class sponsor Mark Bergfelt. 

 

For Bergfelt the experience was as he hoped, “This package is fun to drive and the competition is close, this class is shaping up to be exactly what I was hoping.  The kart packages and the rules in place make this a great class for new racers but also a fun place for existing racers or even parents of racers to run at a reasonable cost.”

 

J3 Competition Cadet and Turn1 ProSports Cadet Novice racers ran as a single class for both events on a trial basis due in part to the rapid rate of improvement of the entire Cadet Novice field.  Teammates Nick Luedeke and Kaden Harter waged a duel in the rain on Saturday as they drove away from the field. Harter pulled alongside the leader at the finish line but came up just .053 seconds short as Luedeke won his first final of the season. Spencer Daniels nipped Leo Stoia at the line by .050 seconds in another close battle for third.  Stoia bounced back on Sunday to win his third race of the season followed by Harter and Luedeke, who set fast time in the race by more than .25 seconds.

 

Derek White was the lone competitor in the Metric Screw & Fastener Yamaha Senior Pipe & Can classes on Saturday in the rain but came back on Sunday to top Harry McElhaney in the Pipe class while Bob Seidel finished ahead of John Burton in the Can class.

 

Sunday June 6th marks round five of the BeaveRun Championship Karting Series.  This event is a Heat Race format event, rather than the traditional qualifying format. Random draw will determine the grid for the first Heat Race followed by a second Heat Race with the field inverted.  The Final order is set by the combined results from the two Heat Races.

BeaveRun Adds Experience to Tech and Race Direction Positions

BeaveRun Adds Experience to Tech and Race Direction Positions 

Wampum, PA – BeaveRun MotorSports Complex has added a trio of experienced people to the race day staff for the 2010 BeaveRun Championship Karting Series. These latest additions to both the tech and race direction staffs are the culmination of an off-season long effort to elevate the professionalism and integrity of the karting program to be on par with the renowned Wilson Circuit itself.
 
While a relaxed club-type atmosphere is what BeaveRun strives for, the incredible level of talent and competition that continues to develop requires an increased level of scrutiny to maintain a level playing field for all competitors. With that in mind, BRCKS has brought in Joe Rohaley, Mark Bergfelt and Brian Flint for the 2010 season.
 
Joe brings years of experience as an engine builder, racer and tech person to the table as he takes on the role of 2-cycle Tech Director for the karting series. Mark has a long history in the 4-cycle business and is a proponent of affordable, entry level karting. He will be responsible for tech and direction of the newly announced Clone class as well as assisting with 2-cycle tech.
 
According to BRCKS Series Director Dan Schlosser the new additions will be perfect fits for the series.
 
“The level of competition at BeaveRun has really been on the rise these last few years so we knew we had to take control of the rules and tech soon. Finding people such as Joe and Mark who bring instant credibility is a real boost for our program. They will fit in really well with Race Director Barry Shenck’s program.”
 
In addition, Brian Flint has come on board as an Assistant Race Director and Grid Steward for the Series. Brian is an active racer in the Grand Am Cup Series but his experience as Pit Steward and Safety Director with groups such as SCCA, Mid-Ohio and NASA are what make him an exciting addition to the Series.
 
“Brian can be a second set of race-experienced eyes for Barry allowing the two of them to cover more ground visually in race situations. He will also be responsible for what has become an increasingly busy pit and grid area as the series has grown.”
 
The three men will join the rest of the BeaveRun staff for the first race in the BRCKS season slated for Sunday, April 25th.
 
Joe Rohaley:
"I was quite impressed that they researched my history doing 2 cycle tech over the years at different tracks in Ohio and the fact that I'm independent and not tied to any engine building business which helps me be non-biased. Dan did his homework before contacting me and I am happy to come on board to work with what has been put together as what I see to be a strong operations team with numerous facets."
 
Mark Bergfelt:
“BeaveRun is a fantastic facility. The price tag to participate in the existing classes there, especially for new racers, can be out of reach however. A really inexpensive class that is based on used equipment and a cheap engine package is just what is needed to grow the program. And it is for that reason I am pleased to have come on board to see that the new Clone class starts on the right foot and stays on track. I am happy to announce that the first 20 engines ordered have already been spoken for which can only mean the class is generating interest already.”
 
Brian Flint:
"I am looking forward to the 2010 season at BeaveRun. I have been hooked on racing ever since my Dad took me to see the Indy 500 when I was 15. Many of today's pro-drivers started out when they were young in kart racing. I love racing of all kinds, and to have the opportunity to help the young people in the BeaveRun Karting Series work towards becoming the stars of tomorrow is fantastic. I think this will prove to be an exciting racing season."
