Italian Motors driver David Jurca (Italkart/Italian Motors TM) took advantage of a late race tussle between Gian Cavaciuti and Bobby Wilson to take his second win of the 2003 ProMoto season at Texas Motor Speedway in the most competitive headline 42 kart ICC field. David qualified 12th in the rain, unable to get the kart setup to his liking. In the prefinal, Jurca stormed to the front from his 12th place starting position to finish second and only .058 seconds from first. In the final, David got a great start and immediately jumped to first. On lap six, his gas tank screw fell out leaving him to hold the gas tank in with his leg. Jurca hung on to the lead until the 22 lap where he encountered lap traffic and was pushed off the track forcing him to third. David immediately charged back and resumed the battle for the lead. Wilson now was in the lead with Cavaciuti second and Jurca third. With only few laps remaining, Cavaciuti made contact with Wilson in a passing attempt and left the track. Jurca went into the lead while Wilson recovered in second, and Wade VanHooser (Intrepid/Italian Motors TM) got the final podium spot.

David Jurca now leads the SKUSA Championship and he is looking forward to the next round which is in Portland, Oregon. The Italian Motors/Italkart Team has won an event at each round of the SKUSA ProMoto Tour this season.
