Nick Galante Closes the Season Point Gap in the Skusa ProKart Challenge Round 3 In Reno.
May 28th 2011:
The SKUSA ProKart Challenge headed to chilly Reno NV for round three of the 6 race series. Snow began falling throughout the day and Nick Galante was the driver to beat after topping the charts in qualifying in the S4 class with a 48.735-lap. Jim Kidd was second, with round one winner Casey Scherer third, all within a tenth of each other. Galante walked away in both heat races and scored two wins. Galante was showing that the others would have to step up their game to contend in the Main event. On lap two, Kidd and Todd Thompson worked by for position ahead of Galante, after a couple of mistakes and appeared to be off-pace from the previous sessions. In the end, Kidd took the victory with Galante placing second and Thompson third. David Arnstein retired after lap one, and Scherer was involved in a wreck in the first start attempt that put him on his head, thankfully able to walk away.
