    4 The "Duffy" Karting's Highest Award 2011 IKF GRAND NATIONALS ROAD RACE June 15-18, 2011 Eagles Canyon Raceway, Decatur, TX SWRA 4-CYCLE SPRINT June 29-July 2, 2011 Shasta Kart Track, Redding, CA Shasta Kart Club Each year, hundreds of karters from all of the USA participate in the IKF Grand Nationals in hopes of winning their class and becoming an IKF Grand National Champion. Along with this prestigious title, each driver is competing for the most coveted award in karting, the "Duffy." Prior to 1976, each Grand National Champion received a TV set or a plaque as their award. At the 1976 April Meeting of the I.K.F. Board of Directors, Administrative Director Bob Graham presented the Board Members with a model of the 12 inch bronze statuette that was to be mounted on a 6 inch wooden base. The designer of this model was Pete Millar. The Board Members agreed that karting needed a "grand prize" to present to each Grand National Champion; something that was out of the ordinary and unique as most karters received many trophies each year for participating in local or regional events. The vote was taken and the statuette was presented, for the first time, at the 1976 I.K.F. Grand Nationals. From 1976 to 1981, it was known as the "Joe Karter" award. At the January 1981 Board Meeting, President John Strauser called for the Board's vote to honor a man who, just the month before, had retired from I.K.F. and karting. This well know gentleman had been active in karting as a driver, mechanic, Board Member, past President several times of the I.K.F., and was the Co-Founder of organized karting and the Go-Kart Club of America, which evolved into the International Kart Federation. His name, Frank "Duffy" Livingstone. 4-CYCLE SPEEDWAY July 10-16, 2011 University Plains Speedway, Brookings, SD South Dakota Kart Club President Strauser made the announcement that henceforth the statuette was to be known as the "Duffy." 2-CYCLE SPEEDWAY- MIDGET July 31-August 4, 2011 Delaware Speedway, Delaware, IA Tri County Karters 2-CYCLE SPRINT August 25-28, 2011 CalSpeed, Fontana, CA EP1K ProMotion KARTER NEWS - juNE 2011

    R ound 3 of the Cal State Karting Series took place under the most beautiful weather conditions Fresno, Ca has to offer. I KARTER NEWS - juNE 2011 Cal State Karting Series Round Three Sr Super Sportsman - Dylan Nobile Kerman Kart Club at The Fresno Fair Grounds Article by Sean Buur, Go Racing Magazine Photos by Joey Barros don't think it could have been more perfect in an area that can be hit or miss in the meteorological department. For years now Kerman Kart Club has been the go-to group for temporary circuits raced within the region 7 borders, mostly at Buffalo Bills, but they got a chance this year to shine at their own home track. No where in the sport will you find a better group of people to work with and it is no won- For years now Kerman Kart Club has been the go-to group for temporary circuits raced within the Region 7 borders der that they are a part of the series year after year. The Kerman club holds their monthly races at the Fresno Fair Grounds on an ever-changing temp cir- cuit with cones and barriers so there was only a slight home court advantage for the local racers. with Fresno being a hefty drive for many of the racers this event was a double punch event for the IKF Grand Nationals and for those who made the trip it was a worthwhile experience. Among the other highlights of the event were grandstands, and real bathrooms, a plus for sure. Kid Kart Kid Kart was a well participated class with 14 drivers looking for the top spot in qualifying. Kanyon Vermillion topped the charts with a 45.535 in the #24 kart. The prefinal was a two kart show with Dezel west stepping up to challenge Vermillion for the win. The final was more of the same with Vermillion taking a great win. Hudson Morrow found a little something extra in the final and battled west early on, and ultimately scored 2nd place. west finished 3rd with Tomas Mejia and Bo olsen in 4th and 5th. Junior 1 PRD & Mini Max Combined qualifying for Junior 1 PrD and Mini Max was a close one in both classes. Jake Drew bested Hunter Corbitt in PrD while Adams Mini Max 9

    Kid Kart - Kanyon Vemillion winner royal McKee beat out Cruz Fiore for the pole. McKee and Drew slayed it in the prefinal with no one in their respective classes finishing anywhere near the winners. The final saw half of the equation change as McKee exited the race just past halfway. McKee had the overall lead until lap 20 when the driver of the kart #2 handed the reigns over to Chase McDaniel. Fortunately for the spectators Fiore was right in the thick of things, keeping it interesting. Fiore took over the lead with just under ten laps to go when McKee spun, McDaniel held fast in 2nd. with 31 laps under his belt, Fiore scored the win. In PrD Drew controlled the pace from the start, always one step ahead of the chasers. Andrew Murowatz, zach Arthur, Challenging Fresno Fair Grounds Circuit Cooper whitbread, and Matt Million all provided most of the on track action as they battled for the remaining top five positions. Murowatz and whitbread traded 2nd place a few times with whitbread making a late race pass that took him all the way to the checkered flag in that position. Arthur has a solid performance, making up a handful of places to score 3rd. Senior Super Sportsman Qualifying was tight in Sr. Box with two locals, Kolby Araki and Nylan Nobile both vying for the top spot. Camden Geise who hales from just a bit more south was right in the mix as well. Although Araki landed the pole it was Nobile who led them to the checkered flag in the prefinal. The final spread out PRD Junior II - Jason Hannegan 10 KARTER NEWS - juNE 2011
