MRP of South Bend is proud to announce the winners of the first round of open qualifying for the Red Bull Driver Search at South Bend Raceway Park this past weekend. For Logan Gomez, Sam Lee & Jordan Dick, the next step is a trip to the East Coast RBDS Run Offs in Massachusetts and another shot at continuing up the ladder.

The racers competed against other area competitors throughout the month of April to post fast times at MRP of South Bend’s race facility in equally prepared karts. The top 20 times qualified before having a three-race runoff to determine the final three to progress. Logan Gomez won each heat in three separate karts to place first followed by both Sam Lee and Jordan Dick each with three top three positions.

“After seeing the previous winners climb the racing ladder we knew the Red Bull Driver Search was the real deal,” said Gomez. “I believe that everyone, including myself, left that evening knowing they had run a fair race. MRP did a wonderful job of making things simple, clear, and satisfying, even going as far as having water for the drivers in-between heats.”

“I thought the Red Bull Driver Search event was a fun experience,” said Lee, finishing second overall in the event. “It was my first year competing and to be able to race against guys like Logan and Jordan in an equal performing kart was a great opportunity. I think that I will do well against the other drivers. I'm very excited to have this chance to be able to compete at a higher level.”

“I really enjoyed how MRP of South Bend structured the Red Bull event,” said Dick. “It wasn't just based on someone getting a quick lap in qualifying. You really had to earn it. I think I have a good chance of succeeding at the regional competition.”

In 2004, MRP purchased South Bend Raceway Park, a 6/10th mile paved asphalt road course, considered one of the premier facilities in the U.S., located among the farmed fields of west South Bend. The facility boasts a well stocked pro-shop and offers arrive and drive, corporate entertainment and training programs for groups and individuals. MRP of South Bend is the host track for the 2005 US Rotax Max Grand Nationals. Visit http://www.sbrp.com for more information or call (574-288-4922).
