2017 SKUSA Pro Tour - Round 2 - Sonoma
SwedeTech Racing Engines pulls off another Pro Tour podium sweep at the SuperKarts! USA SpringNationals in Sonoma, CA. The California based engine builder has swept at least one podium at every Pro Tour round since the 2016 SpringNationals, continuing their streak this weekend. Two pole positions, five prefinal wins, three main event wins, and nine podium appearences were garnered by SwedeTech powered drivers at the second stop on the Pro Tour schedule. The team was once again on-site at the event delivering trackside support to all of their drivers, ensuring they had the support needed to produce strong results.

SwedeTech dominated the S1 Pro class on Saturday, sweeping the top-three spots in qualifying, the pre-final, and main event. Gary Carlton of Leading Edge Motorsports landed his SwedeTech-powered FK chassis in the pole position, followed by Nic LeDuc from Cambrian Karting on his SodiKart in second. Third-place went to Mathias Ramirez of Andersen Karting on his BirelArt, with Jake French from Dallas Karting on his SodiKart following close behind in fifth. The pre-final found Carlton and LeDuc on top once again, followed by French in third, Ramirez in fifth, and Hunter Pickett of Flavor Insights with an Aluminos chassis under him, in sixth. The main event led to a podium sweep for the SwedeTech team, with LeDuc taking the win in round three, followed by Carlton in second and French in third. Ramierez scored a fourth-place finish, and Brian Keck of Keck Racing on his CRG came in sixth with a great drive from his 13th place starting position. This was Nic LeDuc’s first Pro Tour win, and it was a popular achievement amongst his driver peers and the attendees.
