The 2017 season continues to be a successful year for the Aluminos chassis in North America. Two victories in the headline category at the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour has been the highlight, however, the hard work and dedication that has helped to develop the Aluminos chassis is done at the regional and local level. The operation traveled to the California ProKart Challenge event at the Monterey Bay Karters facility in Marina, California on September 1-2 where two more victories were added to the 2017 total, including the chassis’ first championship of the season.
The Aluminos brand has now won four of the five S1 Pro Stock Honda features at the 2017 California ProKart Challenge, thanks to Hunter Pickett and Billy Musgrave. The two drove to a 1-2 finish in Monterey, tightening up the championship chase between the two of them. Musgrave – vice champion in the 2017 SKUSA Pro Tour championship chase – set the pace throughout much of the day aboard his MRC Aluminos. Pickett powered his Aluminos past Musgrave in the main event with fast laps of the race, staying out front to earn his first California PKC victory of the season. The two enter the Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix as the favorites to leave with victory under the lights on September 30.
