“Eight drivers ready to attack Homestead”
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – It is an eight-driver strong Team Benik lineup for the third and fourth rounds of the Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) Winter Series. Taking place this weekend at the AMR Motorplex on the grounds of the Homestead-Miami Speedway, the Fort Lauderdale based program will be looking to improve upon their January results that saw them net several podium finishes.
“We are excited to head back to Homestead and kick off another month of racing,” explained Nick Mitchell. “The SKUSA Winter Series comes to a close this weekend, and we would like nothing but to finish it with some wins. We had a great showing back in January and will look to build on that speed for rounds three and four.”
With eight drivers under the Team Benik tent, five of them will come from the Micro and Mini Swift ranks led by Enzo Vidmontiene. The young Mini Swift driver had solid drives in January and was in contention for the race win but settled for a pair of podium results. Ready to fight for a championship this weekend, Vidmontiene will be aiming for the top step of the podium. 2020 multi-time race winner Asher Ochstein will throw his hat in the mix after leveling up a class in January as he will be joined by female driver Sarah Bradley. The duo had strong performances to close out 2020 and will look to join Vidmontiene at the front of the field. Royce Vega and Sebastian Cortes will fly the Team Benik colors in the Micro Swift class.
The X30 Junior contingent of Jeremy Fletcher and Michael Costello will work together in one of the toughest classes in karting to put Team Benik at the front of the field. With both drivers claiming top-ten results, including a victory for Fletcher in round two and a podium for Costello in round one in January, the goal is simple as they enter Homestead this weekend.
Logan Vajda will rejoin Team Benik as he continues his upward progression in the senior ranks. Competing in the talent-filled X30 Senior class, Vajda will keep chipping away at his competition as he climbs further and further up the results sheets.
Mitchell added, “With the winter karting season nearly 50% over, we are starting to fill out our driver lineups for the summer karting programs. We have race team opportunities available in several different series as well as new and used Team Benik equipment available. Don’t hesitate in reaching out to see how we can help better your program.”
With official practice beginning on Friday, two days of wheel-to-wheel competition will commence on Saturday and Sunday as the SKUSA Winter Series comes to a close and champions are crowned. Follow the Team Benik social media pages all weekend long for news, information, photos, and results.
