SuperNational Victory & LEOPARD CHALLENGE Winners in Vegas
Tag Senior was the largest class of the weekend with nearly 60 karts entered. Taking the lead off the green flag was Italian Motors� David Jurca, who was never seriously challenged. Jurca would pilot his Italkart/Parilla Leopard package to a comfortable margin in the 25 lap final.

During qualifying, David Jurca experienced carburetors issues, which placed him 15th on the grid of 40 drivers. During the heat races, Jurca then moved his way through the field and would earn himself a top ten starting position for the final. At the start, Jurca quickly advanced to fifth position and was challenging Jason Bowles by lap three. The two drivers made contact in turn six dropping the Italkart pilot back to tenth. Jurca would then re-work his way back up to fourth while setting one of the fastest laps of the race. Unfortunately, Ron White would punt him on the last corner of the last lap, sending him back to sixth.
TaG Masters/Leopard Challenge
Mel Snow and Wayne Enright won big before they even left for Vegas. The two drivers captured the �Challenge spots� after a heated season battle in the Leopard Challenge. After placing first and second in the Leopard Challenge Finale, Snow and Enright won an all expense paid trip to compete in the 2005 SuperNationals. The two drivers seized the opportunity and at their first major event, Snow took second with Enright third. Needless to say, it was a great result for the pair of Leopard Challenge winners aboard their Italkart/Parilla Leopard�s. Don�t miss your opportunity to join in and win BIG next year in the Leopard Challenge!
