Photo Gallery: 2nd Annual Southern California Karting Championship

The 2nd Annual Southern California Karting Championships took place on Saturday, August 10, 2019, on a dirt track specially cut into the infield at Perris Auto Speedway.  Racing kicked off at 5:00 P.M. after a brief qualifying session.

The race was originally slated to take place at the SoCal Fair Motorcycle Speedway but was moved to the infield track at the Perris Auto Speedway. The race featured more than $10,000.00 in cash and contingencies for the drivers that arrived to compete in the event.

Among the prizes awarded included the Yamaha of America KT100 class which paid $2,000.00 to the winner. We have been waiting for the official results of the event from the SoCal Oval Kart Club, but the winner of this class appears to have been Fourth-place finisher, Joe Gibb. The top three finishers of the race were DQ’d during the tech inspection for infractions to the rules.

Gibb had failed to qualify for the main event in the class but raced his way to the feature by winning the B-main. Starting at the rear of the feature race, Gibb charged his way to an amazing Fourth place finish navigating past more than 10 other racers. 

The Caltrol Incorporated Senior Clones winner was awarded $1,500.00. Other classes splitting the huge purse were the Colt Group USA Open, Burris Racing F200 and the Dyno Cams Junior Clones.

To the delight of the fans and pit crews, the SoCal Mowers Super Modifieds were also in action.

It appeared by early count, more than 100 entries showed up for their chance to win some of the prize money.
