Bad to the Bone….Bone wins Summer Iron Man Series
When it comes to karting competitions, the true champion is the individual that can display the greatest endurance while keeping fast laps times. The LVGP Summer Iron Man Series is a great test to that skill. An hour and half race was held in each of the 3 Summer months. The overall champion would be crowned based upon overall points over the 3 Races.
The tough aspect of racing is that you can never predict what can happen during a race. In the final race of the series Jason Frankenfield aka Bone had kart issues in the beginning of the race with a broken throttle cable. This enabled Ben Lindsay and Jonathan Updegrove to have a 2 man race. The two drivers raced nose to tail for the final 25 minutes of the race finishing with a difference of .205!!! Bone finished 3rd but had won the previous 2 races to claim the overall victory!
It was an excited Series this Summer as we got to see a lot of new faces get into the competition program. All of the drivers showed great class and sportsmanship.
Next upcoming Competition Events: Adult Leagues 10/3, Junior Leagues 10/6
