SKUSA ProMoto Tour Round 3: Canby, Oregon
July 19-21, David Jurca and the Italian Motors traveled to Canby,
Oregon for the final Western round of the ProMoto Tour. Jurca would
compete in the ultra competitive SuperPro class, where the best
in the nation compete. The weekend was split into two seperate race
days. Saturday would be qualifying, a prefinal, and a final and
the same would go for Sunday.
On Saturday, David qualifiied sixth and would finish sixth in the
prefinal. Jurca struggled with the handling of his kart all weekend,
unable to find the right balance. He would finish fourth in the
final. A solid result for some good points.
Sunday was not any better. After making drastic changes overnight
between Saturday and Sunday, Jurca would qualify 11th. He would
make it up to 8th in the prefinal, eventually finishing 7th in the
final. After the race, Jurca said: "I just couldn't find the
right balance for my kart all weekend. I was happy to have finished
both races, and finish fifth in the SKUSA ProMoto Western Zone Championship
in the SuperPro class as a rookie. I want to take the time to thank
my sponsors Best Ceramic, European Tile Inc.,
Kuzzins Kustoms, Bell
Serengeti Design, and Jim Mason."
