CHRISTIAN BIRD MOTORSPORTS BACK ON THE PODIUM WITH MACY WILLIAMS AT CHALLENGE OF THE AMERICAS

After scoring two podium results in the opening round of the 2020 ROK Cup USA Challenge of the Americas with Liam Letzsch, it was Macy Williams’ turn to stand on the blocks during this past weekend’s event. Taking place at the Calspeed Karting Center in Fontana, California, Williams scored a sixth-place result on Saturday and rose to the challenge on Sunday to finish second, her best result of the 2020 season to date.

“Another great weekend in California and another awesome event put forth by the Challenge of the Americas staff,” explained Christian Bird. “As a team with three competitors, we were able to score one podium, two top-five finishes and four top-ten results. Not too bad for a small team from Colorado.

Throughout the weekend, ROK Junior driver Macy Williams improved each race day to have her best drive of the season. Qualifying ninth on Saturday and finishing eighth in the prefinal, Williams drove to a sixth-place result in the main event. Eager to get back to work Sunday, the young female improved on all of her previous day’s results. Qualifying eighth and driving to fifth in the prefinal, she levelled up three more positions in the main event to finish second and celebrate on the podium that afternoon with her Christian Bird Motorsports squad.

Fellow ROK Junior driver Deanna Hoffman had a trying weekend behind the wheel of her FA Kart. After qualifying eleventh and failing to finish Saturday’s main event, Hoffman returned Sunday with a fourteenth-place effort in qualifying and after a difficult prefinal, found herself with a twelfth-place result at the end of the day

Entering the event with momentum from two podium results in Tucson, ROK Senior competitor Liam Letzsch had to work hard to fight his way to a pair of top-ten finishes. Finishing tenth in Saturday’s prefinal after an eighth-place result in qualifying, Letzsch rebounded to salvage some valuable championship points driving forward in the final to finish fifth. Sunday proved to be a little tougher for the senior level rookie as an eleventh-place effort in both qualifying and the prefinal only netted him a ninth-place finish at the end of the final day of competition.

Bird added, “A huge congrats to Macy. She drove very well and hopefully this will bring some confidence and momentum for our next event. We will now take shift our focus to the Challenge of the Americas finale and look to finish the season strong.”

CHRISTIAN BIRD MOTORSPORTS AIMS TO CARRY MOMENTUM FROM OPENING ROUND OF CHALLENGE OF THE AMERICAS

It is back on track this weekend for the second event in the ROK Cup USA Challenge of the Americas. Trekking from their home base in Grand Junction, Colorado to the CalSpeed Karting Center in Fontana, California, Christian Bird Motorsports will enter a trio of drivers after their double podium winning event less than one month ago.

“We have completed countless laps of testing and preparation to better our results even more,” explained Christian Bird. “Liam is in the championship battle in ROK Senior and with a good event this weekend, could fight for the title and ticket to the ROK Superfinal later this year. Both of our junior drivers showed improvement throughout round one and will look to advance up the running order this weekend. The ROK competition is tough, but we have been putting in the extra hours to be successful.”

Liam Letszch will pilot his FA Kart chassis in the ROK Senior class while female competitors Macy Williams and Deanna Hoffman enter the mix in ROK Junior.

Bird continued, “I can’t thank my drivers and their families as well as the crew for the hard work and extra hours these past few weeks. We are committed to success and this is what it takes.”

CHRISTIAN BIRD MOTORSPORTS EARNS TWO PODIUMS AND FOUR TOP-FIVE RESULTS AT THE CHALLENGE OF THE AMERICAS OPENING ROUND

It was the opening event weekend for the 2020 Challenge of the Americas as Christian Bird Motorsports brought a small but mighty three driver lineup to the Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona. Closing the weekend with two podium results and four top-five finishes, the Grand Junction Motor Speedway based program will now shift their focus to the second event weekend of the series in just over three weeks’ time.

“Great start to our year,” explained Christian Bird. “Liam Letszch made his ROK Senior debut and scored a pair of podium results while Macy Williams worked herself into a two top-five finishes in ROK Junior. This is a good momentum builder as we head into the remainder of the season, and we are looking forward to continuing the success.”

After qualifying sixth on Saturday, Letszch maintained his row three starting spot after finishing sixth in the prefinal. Working hard to increase the speed in his FA Kart, the senior rookie did just that for the main event and put the Christian Bird Motorsports branded machine on the second step of the podium. Sunday saw an improved effort in both qualifying and the prefinal with fifth place finishes. Back to the podium in the main event, Letzsch leveled up to third and solidified his position in the championship points battle.

Two female drivers would do battle in the ROK Junior field as Macy Williams claimed the best results of the pair. Improving from start to finish on both event days, Williams turned her seventh place qualifying effort on Saturday into a fifth place finish in the final. Sunday saw the FA Kart driver improve from sixth in qualifying to narrowly miss the podium, coming home fourth in the day’s main event.

Showing speed leading up to official wheel-to-wheel competition, Deanna Hoffman had zero racing luck once the green flag flew. Qualifying just outside the top-ten on both Saturday and Sunday, Hoffman ran into trouble and will look to rebound during the second event of 2020.

Bird continued, “Macy drove great and really showed that she has what it takes to be a top-five driver at this level. Unfortunately, Deanna ran into some trouble, but I think she would have been well up the running order if she had not. As a team, we will be aiming even higher during round two.”

CHRISTIAN BIRD MOTORSPORTS OPENS 2020 SEASON AT CHALLENGE OF THE AMERICAS THIS WEEKEND

Making the trek south to the Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona, Christian Bird Motorsports will enter three drivers in the opening round of the ROK Challenge of the Americas. Traveling from their home base of the Grand Junction Motor Speedway, Christian Bird Motorsports drivers will be on track mid-week to take advantage of extra testing time as they commence their 2020 campaign.

“We do not have the largest contingent of drivers, but we do have three drivers that can challenge for strong results,” explained Christian Bird. “Additionally, we will be able to focus on the speed and development of these three competitors as we work with them in our program and improve not only their on-track driving but their off-track knowledge.”

Leading the way into Tucson will be ROK Senior rookie Liam Letszch as he levels up from the junior class into the ultra-competitive senior ranks. As a frontrunner and multi-time race winner in 2019, Letszch will look to take his Christian Bird Motorsports prepared FA Kart to the front of the field.

Two female drivers will fly the Christian Bird Motorsports flag in ROK Junior as Macy Williams and Deanna Hoffman enter the mix. Frontrunners throughout the state of Colorado, both Williams and Hoffman will look to put their names at the front of the Challenge of the Americas field

Bird continued, “This is only the start of our season as we have a full slate of races on our calendar. Pending the right number of drivers, we will travel to all Superkarts! USA Pro Tour events, the SKUSA SuperNationals, ROK Fest, ROK the RIO as well as the Colorado Karting Tour. Mix in some test weekends and local level races, and our calendar is full for 2020.”

SEVEN DRIVERS SET TO ROK THE RIO WITH CHRISTIAN BIRD MOTORSPORTS

Looking to close their 2019 ROK Cup USA program out on a high note, the Colorado based Christian Bird Motorsports has entered seven drivers for the upcoming ROK the RIO. Taking place adjacent to the RIO All-Suites Hotel and Casino in the heart of Las Vegas, Nevada, seven drivers will be scattered across four racing divisions as they look to add ROK the RIO Champion to their respective resumes.

“We have a strong lineup of drivers and can’t wait to get to Las Vegas,” explained Christian Bird. “Some of our competitors took on the ROK Fest event in Amarillo earlier this year as a test and it immediately piqued their interest on the Vegas race. The ROK program is one of the most well-run series in the country, and their schedule is conducive to our drivers and their families.”

Leading the way into Las Vegas and making a return to karting will be Matt Jaskol. The former Formula BMW driver and multi-time karting champion will pilot a CRG chassis in the Vortex ROK Shifter class in his quest for ROK the RIO glory. Having not started a competitive karting event in quite some time, Jaskol recently completed a test at Christian Bird Motorsports home facility, Grand Junction Motor Speedway, and put his ROK Shifter powered CRG through the paces.

Perennial junior frontrunner and multi-time 2019 race winner Liam Letzsch will head the way for Christian Bird Motorsports in the Vortex ROK Junior division. As one of the main drivers to beat in the Colorado region, Letzsch is looking towards a national program in 2020 and will look to build the momentum at the RIO. Joining Liam in the Junior ROK class will be Deanna Hoffman, who has been honing her skills at the Colorado Karting Tour in 2019.

Leo Kosman and Alan Cortes will make the trek to Las Vegas as the duo will compete in the 100cc Masters division and utilize the new Vortex ROK VLR engine platform. While both drivers have seen action in different classes in 2019, Kosman and Cortes will fly the Christian Bird Motorsports flag at ROK the RIO.

Finishing third in the Colorado Karting Tour Micro championship in 2019, Gage Korn is set to make his Las Vegas debut. Piloting a Christian Bird Motorsports prepared Vortex Micro ROK, Korn will compete in the youngest class that the ROK Cup USA program has to offer. Joining Korn in Micro ROK in Las Vegas will be Alexander Gevorkyan.

With the Christian Bird Motorsports outfit ready to travel south in the very near future, the Colorado based team has a few tent and transport or arrive and drive opportunities still available. Christian Bird Motorsports will also be offering driver coaching, video and data analysis as well as product sales and support including new and team karts.

CHRISTIAN BIRD MOTORSPORTS ADDS MORE WINS THIS PAST WEEKEND

Continuing their domination through the state of Colorado, Christian Bird Motorsports added four more wins and multiple podiums this past weekend at the IMI Motorsports Complex. Taking on round five of the Colorado Karting Tour, some new and familiar faces could be seen at the top step of the podium as the series heads towards the final three races of 2019.

“It is always good to leave the weekend with race wins and podiums,” expressed Christian Bird. “It was a great weekend at IMI and this is a momentum builder for the final push of the season. We have big plans for the future and continue to chip away at it. A huge thank you to our families and drivers for all of their help and support.”

Taking him his first career win, Gage Korn topped the podium blocks for Christian Bird Motorsports in the Junior 1 Cadet class while fellow teammate Elijah Khrestov added a top-ten finish. Adding another podium for the Korn family, Henry Korn claimed the second step of the podium in Stock Honda Shifter as Colton Timmons took the win providing Christian Bird Motorsports with a one-two finish. The elder of the two Korns was not done there as Henry secured a seventh place result in LO206 Light while Mason Korn competed in the Kid Kart ranks and finished ninth.

Khrestov also pulled double duty on the weekend as he was behind the wheel of his Micro Max machine and drove it to the second step of the podium. Gage Korn was in contention for his second win of the weekend but with two laps remaining, suffered an on track incident and was forced to retire.

Timmy Trostel added a pair of wins to his personal racing resume and the Christian Bird Motorsports banner. Trostel claimed the Rotax Junior prefinal win and then went on to dominate the day’s main event. Also seeing action in the Junior 2 category, Trostel was engaged in hard fought battle for the win and came out on top, claiming his second victory of the weekend.

With Trostel taking the win in Rotax Junior, Christian Bird Motorsports put three drivers in the top-five as Dave William and Deanna Hoffman steered their brand new FA Kart chassis to top-five results. Williams claimed the pole position, showing both qualifying and race pace as he went on to finish fourth. Hoffman garnered her best finish of the year and was able to cross the line in P5.

Hayden Moody would compete in both the KA100 and LO206 Light classes. While showing great pace in KA, and likely in contention for a podium result, Moody was forced to the sidelines before the checkered flag flew but finished the LO206 main event in eleventh. Mathew Simcox held his own in the Kid Kart ranks and finished P2.

Bird continued, “Be sure to come and see us at our new location at Grand Junction Motor Speedway. We have several opportunities to purchase new and used equipment, as well as multiple tent and transport services to Las Vegas for both ROK the RIO and the SuperNats. Space is filling up.”

CHRISTIAN BIRD MOTORSPORTS BECOMES OFFICIAL RACE TEAM OF GRAND JUNCTION MOTOR SPEEDWAY

As one of, if not the, premier team in the Colorado karting market, Christian Bird Motorsports became a little stronger this past week. Inking a deal with Grand Junction Motor Speedway, Christian Bird’s operation will become the official race team of Grand Junction Motor Speedway as drivers look to progress their club level efforts to a regional level program with national level experience.

“I am excited to be linked with a track and club only 15 minutes away from my residence,” explained Bird. “Grand Junction Motor Speedway was my home growing up, and I am happy that it is now the new home of Christian Bird Motorsports. Not only will the facility provide shop space for our growing program, it will also allow me to interact with many more customers and potential customers on a personal level through our trackside support and driver coaching programs.”

Additionally, Christian Bird will look to elevate participation in corporate outings at the facility as well increase chassis and part sales.

“Christian has been an asset to the Colorado karting community and has brought his program to a whole new level in the past year,” explained Stacey Cook, Owner of the Grand Junction Motor Speedway. “He will be able to provide our track customers with professional driver coaching and a program that can bring them to regional and national events if they desire. He has a good head on his shoulders and some great ideas for corporate programs in the Grand Junction and surrounding areas.”

Bird continued, “I can’t thank the Cook family enough, especially Stacey, for taking the time to listen to my ideas and assist me in putting together a plan that will be beneficial for all involved. This is a big deal for me, and I will push as hard as possible to be successful.”

The next event on the Christian Bird Motorsports schedule is the upcoming fifth round of the Colorado Karting Tour on July 28th at IMI Motorsports in Dacono, Colorado.

TWO MORE WINS AND FIVE PODIUMS FOR CHRISTIAN BIRD MOTORSPORTS AT COLORADO KARTING TOUR

With the fourth round of the Colorado Karting Tour taking place at the IMI Motorsports Complex, Christian Bird Motorsports drivers walked away with two wins, five podiums and multiple fast lap honors. With a month off until their next event, the growing program will continue to offer test opportunities in the state of Colorado for interested drivers.

“It was another good event for us at IMI Motorsports,” explained Christian Bird. “As a team, we are firing on all cylinders and making it tough for our competition. A couple of minor issues held us back from even greater results, but we now have more goals to shoot for in round five.”

Leading the way for the team was Liam Letzsch who dominated the Rotax Junior category. The young gun garnered another weekend sweep including pole position, heat race wins and main event victory. Dominating the junior field, Letzsch took control of the championship points lead after only four event weekends.

Christian Bird Motorsports second win of the weekend came from Elijah Khrestsov. Taking the main event victory and fastest lap of the race, the young driver has his sights set on the title. Pulling double duty and competing in the Junior 1 class, Khrestsov added a sixth place result in the 4-cycle division.

Hayden Moody and Gage Korn added second place podium finishes at IMI. Moody secured the second step of the podium in KA100 Senior while Korn made it a 1-2 finish for Christian Bird Motorsports in Micro Max following Khrestsov across the line. Competing in both two and four-cycle powered classes, Moody was classified in the twelfth position in LO206 Light while Korn secured a fifth place result and the fastest lap of the race in Junior 1 Cadet.

Timmy Trostel added another podium result in Colorado taking the third position in Junior 2 while Dave Williams added a pair of fifth place finishes in Rotax Junior and Junior 2. Trostel was the victim of an unfortunate penalty in Rotax Junior forcing him to retire. Deanna Hoffman had a Rotax race to forget after a post race infraction took her to the bottom of the results sheet, but she rebounded to claim the fastest lap in Junior 2 en route to a solid sixth place result.

With Colton Timmons set to do battle in the Stock Honda Shifter class, a nasty virus forced him to the sidelines for the weekend. Look for Colton to return to the Christian Bird Motorsports stable for round five in a few weeks’ time.

Bird continued, “We are building a solid foundation for our program on the regional level and look forward to continued success. Currently we are working towards bringing some of our drivers to the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals in Las Vegas in November so interested parties are asked to contact us.”

The next event on the Christian Bird Motorsports schedule is the upcoming fifth round of the Colorado Karting Tour on July 28th at IMI Motorsports in Dacono, Colorado.

Multiple Wins for Christian Bird Motorsports at Colorado Karting Tour

Taking on the third round of the Colorado Karting Tour, local team Christian Bird Motorsports once again proved to be successful. Taking home two wins, three podiums, one pole position and multiple heat race victories, the growing program solidified their place at the top of the Colorado karting community and will now shift their focus to the next event in less than two weeks’ time.

Leading the way on the results sheet was Junior Rotax driver Liam Letzsch who scored a perfect day at the Grand Junction Motor Speedway. Taking the pole position, two heat race wins and main event victory, Letzsch swept the day as he looks towards the end of the year championship points battle. Joining Letzsch on the Junior Rotax podium was Timmy Trostel, who crossed the stripe in the third position, putting a pair of Christian Bird Motorsports drivers on the blocks at the end of round three. Trostel also competed in the Junior 2 class but unfortunately failed to finish.

Colton Timmons added another victory to the team’s resume as he was able to take top honors in the Shifter class, scoring another victory in 2019.

“Huge congratulations to both Liam and Colton on their victories,” expressed Christian Bird. “We have really elevated our game to try and be the best team in the state of Colorado and this is proven by our results. We will continue to push and provide the best possible program for our customers both regionally and nationally.”

Christian Bird Motorsports drivers Dave Williams, Hayden Moody and Quinton O’Donnell added four more top-five results over the weekend. Williams was able to secure a pair of fourth place finishes in Junior Rotax and Junior 2, while O’Donnell added another fourth in KA100. Hayden Moody secured a fifth place result in KA100, but an unfortunate issue in LO206 did not allow him to complete the full race distance.

Bird continued, “While our main focus is on the Colorado Karting Tour, we are looking to take customers to Las Vegas at the end of the year for both the ROK Cup USA ROK the Rio and the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals.”

The next event on the Christian Bird Motorsports schedule is the upcoming fourth round of the Colorado Karting Tour at IMI Motorsports in Dacono, Colorado.

Eight Drivers Bring Home Hardware for Christian Bird Motorsports at Colorado Karting Tour

With the second round of the Colorado Karting Tour taking place at the Pikes Peak International Raceway, Christian Bird Motorsports entered eight drivers across several different classes. Competing on the Christian Bird designed temporary circuit, team drivers walked away with four wins and five podiums, and quickly shifted their focus to the next event. Leading the way with victories were Quinton O’Donnell in KA 100, Timmy Trostel in Junior 2, Elijah Khrestov in Micro Max and Christian Bird in Stock Honda Shifter.

“It was a great weekend at Pikes Peak for the entire team,” explained Christian Bird. “We had drivers scattered across several classes and showed great pace in each. With a little luck, we could have walked away with two or three more wins.”

Colton Timmons would do battle with Bird in the Stock Honda Shifter class as the duo looked to be the dominant drivers throughout the field. With Bird taking the win, Timmons was primed for the second step of the podium until contact ruined his day. Liam Letzsch, competing in Rotax Junior had a terrible qualifying session after being caught up in an on-track incident and started the prefinal shotgun in the field. Driving like a seasoned veteran, Letzsch marched his way forward to claim a second place result, and though he had the pace to top the podium blocks, he would just run out of time and laps before the checkered flag flew.

Khrestov was one of several drivers pulling double duty this weekend and garnered a race win in Micro Max. Struggling a bit in Junior 1 Cadet, the young talent ended his day with a ninth place result and will look to rebound in a few weeks’ time.

Hayden Moody added a top-five finish in KA 100 crossing the stripe in fourth. Looking to improve on that result in 206 Light, Moody was a victim of a broken chain early on in the race and failed to complete the full race distance. Dave Williams showed podium pace in in Junior 2 en route to a sixth place result while in Rotax Junior improved dramatically from his first race, finishing in the eleventh position. Expect big things from this young talent in the very near future.

Trostel secured the victory in Junior 2 in a thriller of a main event and nearly added his second podium finish of the weekend, claiming the fourth position in Rotax Junior. Quinton O’Donnell swept the weekend in KA 100 securing the pole position, prefinal win and main event victory.

With some downtime before the next event, Christian Bird Motorsports Owner Christian Bird is making himself available for driver coaching, data analysis, and chassis tuning programs across North America. Teams and drivers interested in utilizing his services are asked to contact Christian Bird Motorsports.

Back-to-Back Weekends on Deck for Christian Bird Motorsports

Making the trek from the Rocky Mountain State of Colorado to The Golden State of California, Christian Bird Motorsports (CBM) will be back on track this weekend. Taking on the Challenge of the Americas final round at the Simraceway Performance Karting Center on the ground of the famed Sonoma Raceway, Christian Bird Motorsports will enter a pair of of drivers in the ROK powered series.

With an outside shot at the overall series championship, Liam Letzsch will enter his CBM branded Tony Kart chassis in the talent filled ROK Junior division. 70 markers behind the current point leader, the Christian Bird Motorsports driver will need to not only have a near perfect weekend, but also have luck on his side in Wine Country.

“Liam has had a consistent series to date and currently sits third in the championship points battle,” explained Christian Bird. “Scoring a second place result at the last round, Liam was so close to providing the program with our first national event victory. We will be pushing hard in Sonoma to climb one more step to the top of the podium and see what shakes out in the points championship.”

Colton Timmons will be the second driver in the Christian Bird Motorsports camp as he looks to continue his constant and steady progression behind the wheel of a ROK Shifter. Competing in one of the most difficult classes in North America, Timmons has decreased the gap to the leaders throughout the series and will aim to do the same in Sonoma.

Immediately following the final checkered flag in Sonoma, Christian Bird Motorsports will pack up and head home to Colorado and directly to the IMI Motorsports Park in Erie, Colorado. Competing in a Colorado Karting Tour non-points event dubbed ‘Run Your Rust Off’, CBM will enter a handful of drivers in the series warm-up race.

Letzsch and Timmons will compete on back to back weekends as Letzsch trades his ROK Junior powerplant in for a Rotax Junior engine while Timmons will compete in the Stock Honda Shifter category. Joining the duo will be Dave Williams and Elijah Khrestsov who will each pull double duty with Williams behind the wheels of both a Junior 2 Briggs chassis and a Rotax Junior while Khrestsov will enter Junior 1 Cadet and Micro Max.

Bird continued, “We will be pushing for two great events and a solid start to our 2019 Colorado campaign. We have a few more opportunities for drivers looking to part of the team, as well as arrive and drive opportunities. We have put the right pieces in place and are aiming to be the top karting team in Colorado.”

After the close of the Challenge of the Americas and the upcoming Colorado Karting Tour, Christian Bird Motorsports can also be found at the ROK Cup USA ROK the Rockies, ROK the RIO and the Superkarts! USA! (SKUSA) SuperNationals.

Podium Results for Christian Bird Motorsports as Program Looks to Expand

Searching for their first national level victory, Christian Bird Motorsports almost attained their goal at last weekend’s ROK Cup USA Challenge of the America event. With three hungry drivers behind the wheel of Christian Bird Motorsports branded chassis, Junior ROK driver Liam Letzsch led the way with a pole position, heat race win and podium result in Sunday’s main event.

“We were so close to that first national level win as a team,” explained Christian Bird. “We have been crossing our t’s and dotting our i’s in testing and race events and our hard work is paying off. We are now ready to not only podium, but win, and we have opportunities to join the team as we move forward in 2019.”

After finishing fourth on Saturday in the talent filled ROK Junior category, Letzsch leveled up on Sunday and was one of the drivers to beat throughout the day. Narrowly missing the win, the future champion represented the Christian Bird Motorsports brand on the podium later that afternoon.

Colton Timmons would be behind the wheel of a Christian Bird Motorsports prepared ROK Shifter and battled hard in the gearbox division. Finishing 12th on Saturday, Timmons gained more experience on Sunday as he looks to move up the grid during round three in less than one month’s time.

Karting newcomer Hayden Moody flew the CBR colors in the 100cc Senior class and without bad luck, he would have no luck at all. Involved in incidents that were no fault of his own, Moody was able to gather on track racing experience while taking in driver coaching, data analysis and trackside support from the growing Christian Bird operation as he showed top-ten pace in both days of competition.

Bird added, “We are continuing to offer arrive and drive programs as well as tent and transport. We always offer advice and support for our customers and assist all with data and video analysis to ensure they have the best chance at results as possible. We are planning on several local, regional and national level events in 2019 and are inviting any interested parties in trying our program to contact us today.”

In 2019, Christian Bird Motorsports can be found at the ROK Cup USA Challenge of the Americas, Superkarts! USA Pro Tour, Colorado Karting Tour, ROK Cup USA ROK the Rockies, ROK the RIO and the SKUSA SuperNationals.
