OSWEGO — Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions and Novelis will present the James Shutts Memorial Double Deuce at Oswego Kartway on Friday.
The James Shutts Memorial ‘Double Deuce’ Super Heavy karting event will join Oswego Kartway’s regular racing lineup on Friday, with action set to begin at 7 p.m.
“We’re honored to once again remember James in this way,” said event promoter Dan Kapuscinski. “We have several great partners that have stepped up again to ensure a fantastic event for everyone this Friday. Thank you to Novelis, Oswego Kartway, and all of our competitors and partners for making this event possible.”
Thanks to the help of Novelis, Oswego Kartway, Mike Babcock Racing, Slack Karts, Performance Manufacturing, Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions, D&S Landscaping, Jamie Shutts, Couples Cuts, Chance Weaver and Top Stitch, a host of contingency prizes will be awarded alongside the guaranteed purse.
Bonus prizes of $50 will be awarded to the night’s B-Main winner, the first non-qualified driver, the main event’s hard charger and hard luck driver, and the 10th-fastest qualifier.
The Double Deuce will be a big-pipe, open clutch, Super Heavy (200/400) Clone event. Drivers must weigh a minimum of 200 pounds with racing gear.
Honoring the Shutts Racing numbers of 2/22, the Double Deuce will be contended over the course of two 22-lap segments making for a 44-lap event paying a guaranteed $222 to the winner of the second segment, thanks to Mike Babcock Racing.
The overall winner will also receive a James Shutts Memorial Double Deuce machined trophy from Slack Karts and Performance Manufacturing.
Qualifying time trials will set the initial lineup for the Double Deuce, with the quick timer earning $122 from D&S Landscaping.
The field will then contend in the first 22-lap segment of the event with the segment one winner earning $122 from Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions.
Following the first 22-lap segment, the segment one winner will draw a pill number of 1-6 to determine the number of karts that will be inverted for the final 22-lap segment. If the number one is pulled, the event will restart straight up from the segment one finish. Any other number will designate the number of karts to be inverted, with sixth being the furthest back the segment one winner can start.
Drivers finishing seventh on back in the first segment will restart the second segment in the same position.
The halfway break will last long enough for the pill draw and a drink of water for drivers, with no changes allowed to karts prior to the start of the second segment.
All karts will stop for the break on the Kartway’s backstraight, closest to the main grandstand.
An entry fee will be required. All Oswego Kartway rules and regulations will be followed.
The purse structure for the event calls for $222 to the winner, $150 for second, $100 for third, $75 for fourth, $50 for places 5-9, and $25 for places 10-14.
