September 25th 2006 - Remo No# 1 Seat in Canada.
In the Cadet Class Canadian Remo Ruscitti (Italkart/Comer) put the home crowd on their feet early as the first class up for the day had a home boy on pole, and the paddock heard all about it from choice-voice race caller Rob Howden. The Cadets opened up the racing on Championship Sunday with Spencer Pigot (Juncos) getting the jump at the start of the final heat with championship leader Oscar Tunjo (Nevoso) grabbing second in front of polesitter Remo Ruscitti (Italkart). The trio broke away from the rest of the field and with two to go, Tunjo and Ruscitti worked their way past Pigot in turn one to take over the top spots. Tunjo went on to edge Ruscitti at the line for the win, while defending champ Sage Karam (Birel) was able to catch up to the lead group and finished fourth behind Pigot. Sebastian Ordonez (Juncos) rounded out the top five.
The Cadet field included three Canadians, Remo Ruscitti (Italkart/Comer) the fastest of all after taking pole position from timed qualifying on Saturday, but he lined up seventh for the main event behind fellow Canadian Phillip Orcic (WTP/Comer), who put together three good heats. Garett Grist (CRG/Comer) lined up eleventh of nineteen on Sunday. Two pairs of karts quickly established the race for the National Final as Sage Karam (Birel/Comer) led from Oscar Tunjo (Nevoso/Comer) and a few karts back Sebastian Ordonez (Juncos/Comer) led chassis mate Spencer Pigot (Juncos/Comer). The lead pair remained that way at the checker, Karam winning the race and Munoz the National Championship, while Pigot picked third on the final lap. Ruscitti had a solid, uneventful drive to fifth, while the other two Canadians had opposing fortunes. Orcic had problems lead to a fall to thirteenth, while Grist was in a six-kart battle for positions seven through twelve. Grist was as high as eighth, and as low as twelfth, before settling in the middle at the checker and taking a hard fought tenth. All six crossed the stripe within one second.

August 18th 2006 - Bad Luck hits Remo.
In the final, Orcic was part of the lead quartet and led for a time, but he would eventually lose contact with the top three and was fourth in the final tally, just over two seconds behind the lead fight. Ruscitti had a great race and had advanced from the tail of the field to seventh only to get punted off the track on the final lap, again in the Tic-Tac-Toe turn, ending up in the tires with a bruised elbow after he hit the engine casing during the impact. Ruscitti has shown good pace and will be back tomorrow looking for a top ten finish.

April 6th 2006 -
Race Report: Cascade Regional Series - Tri-Cities.
TAG Cadet quite often provides some of the best racing of the weekend and this weekend was no different. Canadian Remo Ruscitti put his Italkart on the pole with home town boys Colton Shelby and Artie Carpenter (Nevoso kart) rounding out the top three. Throughout the heats, it appeared Birel driver Dalton Egger was in control, nearly clean sweeping the three heat races. Heading to the
feature, it was Carpenter and Egger in the front row with a very experienced Remo Ruscitti poised to pounce from inside row 2, and pounce he did. Ruscitti got a great start leading the pack coming out of corner 1. In the end, Ruscitti narrowly escaped a charging Dalton Egger for the win in the feature Kyle Baldes rounded out the top three with a great drive that saw him start deep in the field from position 7. The top 7 drivers in this class turned in fast laps within 4/10ths of each other, nearly breaking into the 44 second range.
