Barnes said, “Almost a clean weekend sweep in Shifter Masters, one motor problem in the main Saturday kept us from sweeping the weekend, but we got the sweep today. For the weekend we got Two Poles, 2 Heat race Wins, 2 Final Race fastest lap, Sunday Finals Win!!! Leaving with a good Points lead.
I am proud of the other Bermuda boys Horseman & Bulhoes competing in their first Superkarts USA race they did good.”
