Gabriel Podboj

Gabriel Podboj finished third in the final race of the 125 shifter class, but this was enough to secure the championship for 2009.  Brother, George Podboj finished second in season points.  Both Gabriel and George used DDR Power, and want to thank Darcy for the fast, reliable DDR power,  and for the help and support throughout the season!

 

2009 September 27 LAKC Race 8

In race 8 of the 9 race LA Kart Club series Bryce Miller qualified 4th, advanced to 2nd in the heat race, and finished 2nd in the final.  Rob is in second place in points going into the final race.

2009 September 6 Rock Island GP - King of the StreetsKyle Wiegand 

The worlds largest street race! Top Kart driver Kyle Wiegand chose a DDR Honda for his challenge to be the 2009 King of the Streets.  Wiegand came from 5th place in the final to finish second behind Jordan Musser (Rotax Grand National Champion).  Wiegand was closing in, but did not have enough laps to catch Musser!

Thanks also to Billy Conlin for using a DDR TM ICC.

2009 September 5 KRA 13

It is a close battle for the Stock Moto Championship between Eric Batt (DDR Power) and Ron Peterson (2007 KRA ICC Champion).  Peterson edged Eric in qualifying, but Eric took the early lead on the standing start.  After swapping the lead four times, Peterson won the race and now has the season points lead.  Vince Schneider  finished 3rd in his DDR powered Zanardi.

2009 August 29 PKC Race 7 (final round)
Peter Mastro
G1 Class, PP Mastro

Southern California Pro Kart Challenge returned to the CalSpeed Karting facility for the final round of the season.

  • DDR customers Peter Mastro and Roy Montgomery finished first and second, and also locked up the season points in the same order in G1.

    Peter Mastro has been a long time karter and a very loyal customer and friend of mine for many years. Peter has won the PKC G1 Championship again, for the 4th time since PKC began. So far Peter has won 4 out of 5 possible PKC Championship runs. Another outstanding performance from Peter!

    Roy Montgomery has been in karting only a short time, but he has been one of the hardest working drivers out there in PKC. His strong work ethic and his recent association this year with Kimball Williams Racing has really paid off. He has quickly moved from being a beginner to a strong contender in the G1 class.
  • Peter Abba did not run the final event but finished the S1 series in second place with his DDR powered ICC GP kart.

    Peter Abba is a true talent as a driver. Him and his father show up and just make things happen. You give them some power and they just go faster. Peter Abba switched to one of my Spec Hondas for this race and it really paid off. He finished 2nd overall in his first PKC S3 race and I think there is going to be a lot more to come from this guy. What he doesn't have in money Peter really makes up for with his driving.
  • In the popular S3 class, Patrick Cushenberry took pole in the final event, but dropped to third in the final.  Cushenberry finished second in season points in his DDR powered Team Select Top Kart.

    Patrick Cushenberry is another driver very much like Peter Abba.  Not a lot of money but tons of talent and a very fast learner.  He actually qualified on pole and physically finished 2nd in the S3 race but unfortunately was DQ'd for being 2 pounds under weight. It still worked out in the end for him and he finished 2nd over all in the S3 Championship. Patrick is the driver that I think may have the best chance of winning the S3 Championship next season.
  • Rob Whitely locked up 2nd place in season points in S4.  Jeff Bobbitt of 2 Wild Karting has a great year in TaG Masters with his DDR Leopard.  After missing the first two races, he won two races and was a contender for the championship.  He was leading the final race, but had a DNF and finished the season points in second place.

    Both Rob Whitley and Jeff Bobitt have been fast all season and the only thing that has held them back has been some bad luck with crashes and equipment. Once they get things sorted out (they are almost there), I think I'm going to have another couple of Championship guys on my hands. As it is they both finished 2nd in the overall points in their classes.
  • Other drivers to mention on DDR power are Jason Attwood, Team Select, finished 3rd in the S4 spec class in I think his first full year of racing, and Luke Bianco also on DDR Honda power who won the S4 Magnum championship this year.

CONGRATULATIONS, and Thank You to all the DDR drivers and customers in the PKC!  We look forward to supporting you in the future.
