WORD Racing

November 24, 2012 Portland, Oregon


We have many things to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving weekend, as 2012 was one of our most successful racing seasons yet. Special thanks to our team partners: WORD Web Design, Joy Teriyaki, Shark Shifter, Rolison Performance Group, Vol-Tech, and Zamp.

We participated in several different championship points series this year, and we achieved the following results:

  • 2012 NW ProKart Challenge Championship: Ethan 1st overall, Randy 2nd overall
  • 2012 Oregon State Karting Championship Series: Randy 1st overall, Ethan 2nd overall
  • 2012 Northwest Gold Cup Championship: Ethan 3rd overall, Randy 6th overall
  • Ethan: Three 1st place finishes, and seven 2nd place finishes in 2012
  • Randy: Six 1st place finishes, and four 2nd place finishes in 2012

SKUSA NW ProKartWe also raced in fields combined with Rotax Max Challengers. At the beginning of the year we were mid-field, but towards the end of the year we were often at the front of the Rotax class, in addition to leading our own TaG Sr. class. The best TaG Sr. fields were found in Sumas, Washington where we raced with 14 TaG Sr. karts, and achieved a 2nd place, our first time at the track. Next year we will also be attending one or two SKUSA ProKart National races down south (Arizona, California, and/or Las Vegas) where as many as 40 karts can be on the track at the same time! The Las Vegas event is known as the Super Nationals, but is actually an International event with drivers (and media coverage) from all around the world.


As mentioned above we will be attending at least one of the huge SKUSA Pro Nationals events (Spring Nationals, Summer Nationals, and/or Super Nationals).

We are also very excited to announce, if everything comes together, Ethan will have the opportunity to take his first test drive in a Formula race car, with a professional race team in California!

Brand excitement and loyalty - an emotional connection with your company

The test drive is something we have been working towards, for quite some time now, and will be closely tied-in with a major marketing campaign to follow Ethan's progress. The Formula race car will be "wrapped" on the front and sides with colors and branding partners of our choice!

Contact us to be part of this exciting moment. There will be press releases to major news media, video coverage (including on-board cameras), and media rights will also be given to our marketing partners. This is a great opportunity to build excitement and brand loyalty of your company or product on a very sophisticated hi-tech race car in a news worthy event.

For more details on the demographics and benefits, we now have a new 2013 Marketing Summary, available in PDF format. Please call or email us for the link, or more information. We look forward to helping your company grow in 2013.
