Christian Brooks wins United States Rotax Grand National Championship

  • Christian Brooks wins United States Rotax Grand National Championship 22 October 2011 Pre-Main-Christian Brooks (Tony Kart) and Logan Sargeant (Kart Mini) made it a west coast-east coast front row as they led the field to the green light for the 10-lap pre-main run in the United States Rotax Grand Nationals at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. The inside row got the jump with Brooks leading the way with Austin Versteeg (CRG) and Darren Keane (CRG) coming through. The top four shuffled around through lap one and into lap two, allowing Kyle Kirkwood (Arrow) to join the fun. Versteeg and Brooks locked up at the front and by lap three held a six-tenths lead over Sargeant with Kirkwood trailing. As they ran the final laps, the front two were well out in front with Versteeg running a defensive line with Brooks up on his rear bumper. Brooks pulled the trigger in turn 10 and with some contact made, he took the position. Versteeg crossed the line in second. Sargeant end up third, holding off a late charge from Devlin DeFrancesco (FA Kart) - running under appeal - and Kirkwood.
  • Main Event-The Mini Max field worked through the opening corners cleanly with no driver off track to begin their 14-lap main event. Brooks jumped out to the lead with
Sargeant ducking in behind with Kirkwood, Versteeg and Keane making up the topfive. After three laps, Brooks’ advantage was six-tenths of a second as a host of drivers trailed, roughly 10 karts in the second group. At the halfway point, Brooks stretched his lead to just under one second over Sargeant and Kirkwood. Versteeg
led the second group with plenty of action taking place. Even with Sargeant and Kirkwood locked up, Brooks continued to stretch his lead heading toward the checkered
flag. On the 14th circuit, Brooks kept his Tony Kart West entry clean and out of trouble, scoring the win by 2.519-seconds and joining a long list of successful United States Rotax National Champions.
