PRD Challenge Bounty Defended by Johnson and Zimmeman at LAKC Round 5. Round 6 Bounty Issued.
The PRD Challenge bounty was defended by Matt Johnson and Derek Zimmerman at round 5 of the LAKC PRD Senior Controlled event June 29th. The two defenders split the cash bounty placed on their heads by RLV after aggressive action was aimed at them all day long. Paul Bonilla and David Vasquez attacked early in the 18 lap final with Johnson slotting in for 3rd. By halfway it was clear that these three were going to go the distance and the rest were left fighting for 4th place. The real question was if defender, Johnson was going to be able to get to the front and thwart the efforts to claim the bounty. Vasquez and Johnson traded the lead a few times in the latter stages of the contest with Bonilla lurking a few feet behind in 3rd. Johnson was able to fight back, scoring the win, and defending the bounty. Vasquez finished on his heals in 2nd and Bonilla was 3rd. Defender, Derek Zimmerman battled most of the race with Jordan Roberson in the chase group and finished in 5th. Continue reading PRD Challenge Bounty Defended by Johnson and Zimmeman at LAKC Round 5.

Part Number PRD-7121
Upon completion of the first twenty (20) hours of use, the gear plate must be removed and inspected on both sides for cracking. Special attention should be given to the root of the teeth and the lightening holes.
After the initial inspection, the complete inspection process must be repeated after every 5 hours of use.
When the gear plate has reached 40 hours of total use it must be replaced.
NOTE: The use of screwdrivers and pry bars to remove the gear plate/clutch center will damage the part causing premature failure. Only use the PRD clutch center puller to remove the clutch plate (part # PRD-7193). When reinstalling do not over tighten the three (3) gear plate bolts, maximum torque 144 inch pounds/12 foot pounds with red lock tight.
Possible gear plate failure may occur as a result of improper removal, reinstallation or use beyond the expected life of the product.
WARNING: If failure occurs, the engine will be under power. The gear plate could potentially separate from the main gear at a high rate of speed causing damage or injury.

The PRD Pan Am Crown of Karting presented by RLV/PRD-USA, Bryan Herta Autorsport, Vega Tires, Honda Performance Development, Acceleration Karting, Fastech Racing, LAKC and CalSpeed Karting took place at AutoClub Speedway in conjunction with the IZOD Indy season finale October 17th-19th. Drivers from South America, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and California competed for a $20,000 purse, two Bryan Herta Autosport prize packages and a Honda GHX50 engine in five classes. The event went off in the Fan Zone located directly in front of the main grandstands in full view of all who entered the speedway. Make sure to check out and “like” PRD-USA on Facebook for exclusive photos and videos from the event.
Otherwise a flawless event, one slight hiccup during practice on Friday initiated a minor modification to the track for spectator safety. The 18-turn 6/10ths of a mile track was fast, with a 650′ back straight. The red flag never flew all weekend long, a testament to the quality of the layout and the drivers. The track crew did a fantastic job and the officiating was spot on all weekend. Continue reading PRD Pan Am Crown of Karting makes a successful debut at AutoClub Speedway with the IZOD IndyCars
