Jake Drew Racing ( Karting 2010 )MARCH 10TH, 2011 The recently formed Cal State Karting Series made its world wide debut the weekend of March 5-6 at the CalSpeed Karting Center in Fontana, CA. The inaugural event was the merging of two good regional programs into one new power series that took the best from both and combined them into one. With Saturday practice for all classes and racing slated for Sunday, there was no shortage of track time. Most of the 127 entries took advantage of the beautiful weather on Saturday to log some laps and prepare for the next day’s adventure

It is not too often in KPV1 that a driver dominates the class from start to finish, but Jake Drew did just that this weekend. From the drop of the first green in qualifying, Drew was on top. His pole time of 55.275 was 7 tenths quicker than off pole driver Christian Brooks and he carried that speed well into the heat race. With Drew in another zip code, the battle for 2nd in the final was shaping up between Brooks, Colton Herta, Chase McDaniel and Skylar Estrada. The dark horse we didn’t count on was Justice Lepe. Lepe finished the heat race well back and started the final from nearly last place, but he was on fire in the final, turning laps half second faster than the leader Drew. There was no doubt that Drew was going to win this race barring any bad luck on his part, and he did just that. Drew put 13 seconds into the field in only 20 laps of racing. It was so boring out front, I’m surprised he didn’t fall asleep and drive off track. It was quite a display of driving by the #29 and one he should relish for quite a while. Behind Drew, Herta, McDaniel, and Estrada played cat-n-mouse, allowing Brooks to close the gap along with a charging Lepe. Lepe was impressive to say the least slicing his way into 2nd place by lap 7. Herta and Brooks managed to keep in his draft, but they had to settle for 3rd and 4th. Estrada rounded things off a few seconds back in 5th.
