Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions and Novelis are proud to present the third annual James Shutts Memorial ‘Double Deuce’ at Oswego Kartway on Friday, August 14.

The James Shutts Memorial ‘Double Deuce’ Super Heavy karting event will join Oswego Kartway’s regular racing lineup for that evening.

“We’re proud to once again have Novelis on as a partner in this great event, which remembers James each year at the Kartway,” said race promoter, Dan Kapuscinski. “Due to COVID complications this season has certainly been unique, but we thank Oswego Kartway for once again hosting this great race this summer.”

Thanks to the help of Novelis, Mike Babcock Racing, Slack Karts, Performance Manufacturing and Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions; competitors in the James Shutts Memorial will compete for a guaranteed purse, among other prizes.

The ‘Double Deuce’ will be a big-pipe, open clutch, Super Heavy (200/400) Clone event. Drivers must weigh a minimum of 200 lbs. 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 before the field contends 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 7th 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, 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 back straight away, closest to the main grandstand.

A $25 entry fee will be required. All Oswego Kartway rules and regulations will be followed.
