Fort Wayne presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales will be the John Limbacher Memorial Race, offering a whopping
$2,000 paycheck to the victor of the 360 Clone chase on Saturday, December 31.
“My dad loved the go kart racing community,” commented Jon Limbacher, “and he was always thrilled when the engines

Joining the 360 Clone class for kart racing will be 6 other classes while the Quarter Midgets will join the karts with 6
divisions of racing primarily during the day hours. Highlighting the evening portion both dates will be the Midgets along
with winged and non-winged 600 Midgets.
Shawn Kluck (Fremont, OH) captured last year’s Limbacher Memorial in a nail-biter, to become the fourth different
winner. Jake Shelley (Okeana, OH) captured the initial running, followed in order by Dustin Heath (Morris, IL) and Philip
Schneider (Wakakoneta, OH).
“Dad’s business, Limbacher Extreme Power, was highly respected in the go-kart circle and he loved the on-track
competition level of the karts. With $2,000 to win, that certainly ups the ante on competition and I’m sure dad is proud
of what we are doing to carry on his legacy,” continued Jon.
Rumble in Fort Wayne presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales tickets are available through any Ticketmaster outlet or
