Teammates Brian Wilhelm and Mitch White took their Swedetech powered F-125 OWL laydown karts to a dominating performance at what most consider the crown jewel of the Dunlop Tire WKA National Road Race Series, the World Championships at Daytona International Speedway, sponsored by Mazda.
For the second time in as many races at the big track, Wilhelm and White dominated the podium of F-125, Unlimited I and Unlimited II. This year the duo finished first and second respectively in each event. Wilhelm not only set fast time for the event, but has now won all three classes, two Daytona championships in a row.
“We are really proud of this accomplishment!” said White. “To finish 1st and 2nd, especially in the Unlimited classes where there was a stacked field of B-Stocks, 250cc laydowns, and 250cc superkarts, was a huge testimony to meticulous planning and preparation, exceptional tuning by Brian, and wicked Swedetech speed!”
Wilhelm added, “After our success in the 2009 event (2010 was canceled due to track resurfacing), there were many people gunning for us. We had speed and reliability – critical ingredients for success at Daytona…..anywhere.”
Wilhelm and White have an exceptional run of WKA Daytona wins developing. Their list of wins include, 2007 Daytona F-125 (White), 2007 Daytona Unlimited II (Wilhelm), 2008 Daytona F-125 and Unlimited II (Wilhelm), 2009 Daytona F-125, Unlimited I, Unlimited II (Wilhelm).
