In addition to that, the standing water, and the decreasing light, we are ending today’s racing program and will begin tomorrow at 8am. We will likely begin with the five main events that we did not run today, but won’t have schedules ready until tomorrow morning.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gatorz Challenge of the Americas set for second showdown of 2010
February 25, 2010 (Orange, Calif.) – Picking up where the series left off a month ago at PKRA in Phoenix, the Gatorz Challenge of the Americas is traveling west to compete at the Calspeed Karting Center in Fontana, Calif. located at the Auto Club Speedway. The series will use the backwards Grande configuration, which provides exciting, competitive racing and provided several last-lap surprises at last year’s CotA weekend. And with the series expecting more entries than in Phoenix, with the addition of several very fast drivers, there will only be more of the same this weekend in Fontana.
Every qualifying session, heat race, and main will be broadcast with live timing and scoring, commentary, and video from the series website at www.gatorzkarting.com.
