The third round of the 2013 season is about to get underway at Oakland Valley Race Park in Cuddebackville NY. June 22nd will mark the 3rd Annual Gearup Challenge Night Race and with the huge support from the team at OVRP we are expecting a great turnout. Our one and only night race of the season is sure to be fantastic with the added excitment of racing under the lights! The weekends activities will start on Friday with a practice from 12 to 7 and continue on Saturday with practice from 9:30 to 2:30 the racing will start at 3 PM sharp. Hannen Motorsport has extended our racers a fantastic price package for both days of track activities please check the series & schedule page for full details.
The F-Series and Northeast Shifters will continue at this night race to bring you a fantastic racing program with the most popular and competative classes offered in karting today. If you are left out, this might be a good time to beg, barrow or pay for a ride as it will be the race not to be missed. Over the past two events our team has worked hard on special features and improving the overall program and this race is no exception as we are always striving for a more enjoyable racing experience.
One of our weekends highlights is the Friday night pre race party as Christine and Mike Doty of Victory Lane Bar and Grill have extended a warm welcome to all racers for a free buffet after friday practice. The food will be available after 7:30 pm and will include a selection for adults and kids. Make sure not to miss this event since last year it created a fabulous atmosphere with great friends. We are very thankfull to Mike Doty of MDR Racing for his generous contribution to enhance the event!
The team has been very busy in the off season and happy to have finally completed our 2013 season prize package just in time for round #1 at NJMP on 4/20-4/21. The 2012 Supernats Las Vegas prizes where a huge hit but we wanted to go with a package that will complete our vision of creating a karting program that will prep drivers for a career in racing. The F-Series is very proud to have partnered with Bertil Roos Racing School to create a fabulous SR class division prize package for the 2013 champions. The prize will include a fantastic experience in a Formula 2000 race car! All Sr drivers are eligible since they have previous racing experience and meet minimum age requirements. As previously released the Jr prize package will consist of a $1000 cash payout. Since Las Vegas was such a huge hit we have decided to give the highest points winning champion the opportunity to choose their desired prize of either $1000, Bertil Roos Racing Adventure, or a trip to the 2013 Las Vegas Supernats. Jr champions are limited to choose between the $1000 or the Vegas trip since they are ineligible for the driving school. MG Tires has been a huge supporter of our vision and has proven it once again with generous prizes, that we will be distributed to our second place points earners one set of the class specific tires, a fabulous jacket and apparel to match. Third place overall will receive a fantastic Gearup F-Series apparel package.
