AutoRacing1.com team wins 2nd year in rowUPDATE #2 Here is a video our Scott Morris put together of the go-kart race. Watch as the AR1.com team comes from the back, takes the lead and then proceeds to pull away for a dominating win.
The team from AutoRacing1.com (Top of Podium), along with former Indy 500 pole-sitter Alex Tagliani, won Wednesday's St. Pete Grand Prix media-driver go-kart challenge.
The St. Petersburg GP Media Day was held at the Andersen RacePark karting facility off U.S. 41 Wednesday and included appearances by dignitaries and several drivers, including IndyCar Series stars Justin Wilson and Alex Tagliani.
It was capped by a go-kart race in which teams from media outlets were assigned a professional or semi-pro driver. The AutoRacing1.com team was paired with Alex Tagliani.
