Bray Back On Skusa Pro Tour Trail this Weekend

Globetrotting Kiwi karter Daniel Bray is back on the SuperKarts USA Pro Tour trail in the United States this weekend, joining over 100 pro-level karters at the double-header (Rnds 3 & 4) SummerNationals meeting at the Grand Junction Motor Speedway in Colorado.

Bray, who won the series' premier S1 Pro Stock Moto class title in 2011, currently lies fourth in the 2013 series points standings after a best finish of fourth at the first double-header round of the 2013 season at Tucson in Arizona in April.

Since then he has contested both rounds of this year's CIK-FIA European Championship for KZ2 karts in Italy and Belgium, and is looking to improve on his Arizona performance in Colorado.

Defending class title holder Fritz Leesmann holds a 40-point lead in S1 Pro Stock Moto heading into this weekend's meeting with last year's class series runner-up Joey Wiumsett second, top US female driver Sabre Cook third and Bray fourth.
