Jared John Clears More than $2,000 with James Shutts Memorial Sweep at Weedsport Kartway

WEEDSPORT, NY (September 19, 2022) – With the threat of severe weather lingering all afternoon, more than 115 entries hustled their way through the James Shutts Memorial at Weedsport Kartway with Indiana driver Jared John going four for four on the day, taking home more than $2,000.

John set fast time and won every feature he entered on Sunday, including the PRO Clone Super Heavy James Shutts Memorial, which paid a hefty $1,082 to win.  Coupled with his fast time award, leading at halfway and setting the fastest lap of the 44-lap main; John collected more than $1,450 in PRO Clone Super Heavy action.

John’s only adversity during the afternoon was pulling an inversion pill of six after winning the first 22-lap stage of the Shutts Memorial.  The inversion set him behind early contenders Colin Spatorico, Tony Bootes, Matt Chavis, Nick McGill and Trent Curtis for the final 22-lap run. 

However, it took little time at all for John to eventually race his way back to lead and cover the field for his 14th career win at Weedsport and first Shutts Memorial victory.  John outlasted Curtis, Bootes, McGill and Jason Moll in the front five positions.

John also took a PRO Clone 360 win on the day, worth $500, besting Tanner Emmons, David Hackett Jr., Chris Natoli and Josh Hare.  Points wins for John in Clone Heavy and Clone Super Heavy also added to his total for the afternoon.

The only senior driver to go to victory lane during the day, not named Jared John, was Maryland’s Josh Hare.  Hare topped the largest field of the day in Clone Light, sporting 22 entries, defeating Trent Smith, Dave Foti, Seth Whitney and Emmons for the $150 win.

A healthy field of junior competitors on Sunday led to a pair of Jr. Red Clone features, with 11 drivers entered.

Joey Williams was the winner of the first Red Clone main over Austin Silvernail, with Luke Holmes landing yet another victory in the second feature over Ryan Barry.

Levi Herriven earned his 14th career victory at Weedsport on Sunday in Jr. Green Clone holding off a hard charging Addisyn Roger with Laina Stewart, Wyatt Mullen and Olvia Barry filling the field.

Grayson Adderley flew to the win in Jr. Purple Clone with Weedsport regulars Parker Allen and Savannah Simmons giving chase.

Jr. Blue Clone saw another win for Nigel Pendykoski with Riley Begy and Paige Smith filling the podium.

Lastly, Jr. Unrestricted was won by Casey Pietrzak who bested Pendykoski and Aidan McCollister.

The Slack Karts Super Kart Series will draw to a close during Octoberfest at Weedsport Kartway on October 15-16.  All eight points divisions will compete on each day to determine overall champions, with a slate of PRO events also to be contended on each afternoon.
