McCaughan and Taskinen Take Home CAN-AM Challenge Victories in Washington

While Eastern Canadian karters converged on Goodwood Kartways this past weekend, many drivers from Western Canada travelled across the border to Washington, USA for the opening weekend of the CAN-AM Karting Challenge, taking place at Tri-Cities Karting.

For many of those Canadians taking part, it was a solid weekend, especially for Alberta’s Coltin McCaughan who secured the top spot in both Rotax Senior Finals.

Competing with Rolison Performance Group aboard a Kosmic Kart, McCaughan dominated the category, topping the results in both Qualifying sessions, both PreFinals and as mentioned, both Finals.

On Sunday, McCaughan was joined on the podium by fellow Canuck Kellen Ritter, who is enjoying a great start to the season as a rookie

in the Senior ranks, as he finished second. Bradley Dezell and Ryan Martin were also in the top-5 on Sunday.

In Rotax Junior, Matthew Taskinen waved the maple leaf on Sunday, taking a major victory. He was also on the pole-position Saturday but failed to follow through in the Final.

Other podium’s for Canadian drivers included Chris Eagles in TaG Senior (second on Saturday, third on Sunday), Shawn Kozma in Micro-Max (second both days), Ryan Dezall in Mini-Max (second on Sunday) and Jason Leung also in Mini-Max (third on Sunday).
