Three sets of brake kits to be awarded to junior divisions

MCPDAYTON, Ohio – Martin Custom Products, Inc. (MCP), an industry leader in brakes in American karting, has come on board to sponsor the upcoming July 11-13 Michigan Kart Supply Gold Cup Nationals at G&J Kartway in Camden, Ohio.

MCP has posted three sets of #2250LW kits for round two of the 2014 RLV Gold Cup Series.

The kits include the following.

1-#875 Cast Master Cylinder
1-#1375 Cast Caliper
1-#125L 1 1/4" Lightweight Hub
1-#711.12 3/16" X 7.1" Slotted Rotor
    Hi-pressure nylon tubing, 4 oz of Dot-5 Silicone fluid, hub/rotor bolts and decals.

The MCP brake kits will be awarded to feature winners in three main events Saturday, July 12 at G&J.

-    Junior Pro Gas Animal 1
-    Sportsman Pro Gas Animal Lite 1
-    Sportsman Pro Gas Animal Heavy 1

In the case one driver sweeps both Saturday’s Sportsman Pro Gas main events, the driver who finishes second in Sportsman Pro Gas Animal Heavy, which runs later than Lite in the running order, will be awarded the brake kit. WKA and MCP want no fewer than three different drivers and teams to win the special awards.

MCP Brakes’ Brad Engle spoke about supporting the upcoming Gold Cup national.

“We like to support grassroots karting and the Gold Cup certainly promotes a more grassroots-style series and competition,” Engle said. “We’re happy to give back to the junior racers and teams and with the race so close to home here in the Dayton area, it’s a nice fit for MCP. I’m looking forward to visiting with friends and watching the 4-cycle action at G&J in a few weeks.”

MCP Brake Systems is located in Dayton, Ohio, only a short distance from G&J Kartway. Representatives from MCP will be on hand at G&J for the Gold Cup national and will deliver the awards to the track for podium presentations Saturday evening.

Pre-registration is open for the Michigan Kart Supply Nationals until Wednesday, July 2.
