Though I've raced another points series, I finally went to my first banquet on Saturday and had a great time seeing my friends and all the drivers/crews. Ashway Speedway gave out some great prizes and I was lucky enough to win the grand prize, a new 2010 Ultramax. Click here to see a picture of me and the new kart.

Our season is over and we're looking forward to running Limited Mod next season. Had a great time running the Ashway Speedway Points Series this year and can't wait to hang out with friends and other drivers at the banquet.

November 6, 2010

Had a great time at Ashway Speedway today, ran my fastest lap in the Feature Race: 14.04

Guess because it was cold, there wasn't that many karts at the track so they mixed the Stock classes. The track was in great shape and my kart was hooked up, well worth being a little cold with the great lap times...

I'm moving to Limited Mod next year, can't wait to get into the 13's at Ashway Speedway !

October 14, 2010

I want to thank Travis Humphrey for being my sub-driver for the last points race at Ashway Speedway, with the extra points I placed 5th of 9 (or 18 total entries) for this season, can wait for the banquet because Mike always has great prizes.

Band has knocked me out of racing this month, hope the weather stays nice in November so I get a chance to race a few more times this year.

Thinking of pulling the restrictor plate, changing the jet and adding lead to make 350 lbs so that I can see what the Animal will do as a true Stocker. I'm not sure what class I'll get to run with but I know I won't get a Payout, its just going to be for fun...

I'd really wish a few more Stock Animals would show up next year so we can get a new class going, might change the Animal over to a Limited if it looks like I'll have to run the restrictor plate again next season.

I'll post when I'm racing next, might be a few weeks...

September 6, 2010

Its been a while since I posted anything, so I'll give a breif overview of what been going on...

I raced the 4th Points race at Ashway back on July 31st and finished 4th of 10

For one reason or another, we did not race in the month of August...

I just raced the 5th Points race at Ashway on September 4th and finished 6th of 9

Hoping to hit a regular race soon, we're going to try a gearing change to get ready for the last Points race, which I'll likely have a sub-driver...

July 18, 2010

Didn't get everything finished in enough time to go racing on Saturday, but we don't have much to do before the next points race at Ashway Speedway on July 31st

July 12, 2010

Though we didn't get to race this past weekend, we did fix the inside nurf bar and will be back at Ashway Speedway this Saturday. We also moved the seat on the straight rail and look forward to making another test run on it...

July 3, 2010

Another fun night at Ashway Speedway, got to race Stock Lite with a few drivers I never ran with before, great competition !

Even though I got tangled up on the last lap and bent a nurf bar, I still placed 3rd. I can't wait to get back to Ashway on July 17th and try a few new ideas on the UltraMax, looking forward to taking the Beast out for a few practice laps again, that kart is such a blast to drive !

I'd like to thank Big Daddy, Grandma and Kim for watching me race !

June 21, 2010

Had a fun time at the Points Race, ended up placing 4th of 10 that night. I should be tied for 6th place after the 3rd race. Not too bad out of 15 entries so far...

One of my friends emailed me this link about my website, if you get a minute, please check it out: Karting Resources Blog.

Since we're not racing this weekend, my Dad got bored and created a shop on CafePress and designed a few different T-Shirt this week. You can check it out by clicking here.

June 6, 2010

I had a great time racing on Saturday, the new setup worked great and I now have a new personal best lap time (14.58) at Ashway Speedway. In the Feature I was following Andrew Hillard who is one of the best drivers at the track, though I made a few runs on him I couldn't get around him and ended up placing 2nd.

My dad forgot to recharge the camcorder and the battery died a few laps into the race, click here to view the short video...

May 17, 2010

Really looking forward to the Points Race at Ashway Speedway this Saturday, been working the tires since last week. Ashway is also having an Open Practice this Friday, not sure if I'll go and waste the tires because the kart is working good...

May 9, 2010

Had a great time on Saturday, it was some tight racing with quite a few lead changes.

Its been a few season since I've been in the same class with Kyle, he is a really good driver and I'm glad to be racing him again this season.

May 6, 2010

Looking forward to racing at Ashway Speedway this Saturday, we were hoping to get the straight rail ready for this weekend but we still need to weld the pitman brackets, mount the seat and the body, then scale it, might hit the track with it next time.

Hopefully when we get done building the Beast Widebody I'll use it for Stock Med, might get my Dad to race it a few times too...

April 23, 2010

With the Ashway Speedway closed and the Spring Shoot Out cancelled for this weekend, there is no place to race. Guess I'll help work on the karts and play some PS3 this weekend...

April 11, 2010

Spent most of Saturday setting up the kart, once I got to the track the kart wouldn't hook up which was fine because we were waiting for the sun to go down and the track to get tacky. Started the Heat on the pole and ended up taking 3rd, in the Feature was able to work my way back up to finsh in 1st place.

Had a great time and enjoyed running with some drivers I've never raced before, great sportmanship in the Stock Med class !

March 29, 2010

What can I say about the first points race, not much other than I got spun, there was no caution and I ended a lap down.

March 26, 2010

Try'n out the scale stand, works great !

Can't wait to visit Ashway Speedway this Saturday for the first points race of the 2010 season !

March 22, 2010

Dad built a scale stand over the weekend, we just need to paint it and add some mounts in the trailer to haul it to the track.

I'm really looking forward to racing the first Points race at Ashway Speedway this weekend, most of the Stout Racing Team will be there too.

Once again, I'd like to thank all my Sponsors for all the help getting ready for the 2010 racing season !

March 13, 2010

Even though Ashway Speedway was a little wet and slick because of the rain, we had a great time and I'm happy that I got a little seat time before the first points race on March 27th and I ended up placing 2nd out of 5 in the Feature race.

Check out the video I did with my new Helmet Cam during the second practice session !

March 8, 2010

I'm ready to hit the track this Saturday (March 13th), the motor is rebuilt, the bearings and the brake pads have been replaced on the kart, new body has been mounted and the tires are prepped, just hope the weather is good because I'm ready to run Stock Lite this season...

I have a new toy for this racing season, its a helmet cam from GoPro to take some cool onboard action to go with the videos my Dad tapes during the Feature races.

Think I'm going to use the side mount.

I'd like to thank all my Sponsors for all the help getting ready for the 2010 racing season !

I'd would like to thank Travis Humphrey for rebuilding my Animal motor for this season, he finished on the February 6th and we have yet to break it in. We hope the weather is good over the next two weekends because I can't wait to try hear it with all the new parts and new carb.

Closer shot of my motor:

Mounted my new body on February 14th:

I would also like to thank Gerald and Nick Perry for the tire machine, it worked great to work in the new tires. Once we cleaned them up, we started prep'n them, I really can't wait to hit the track this season...

The only thing left to do on the UltraMax is change out the rear axle bearings and its ready to race. We really need to start on the old streight rail soon, we have all the parts and the motor, we just need to bolt the stuff on it and set it up. Glad we still have all the setup sheets on it, it should save us some time getting it ready to race...

Febuary 2, 2010

Going to rebuild the Animal this weekend so that I can run it in Stock Lite this season. Bear setup the carb to run the 3 hole (IKF) restrictor plate and also sent the jet if we decide to pull the plate and run a regular Animal class, I can't thank Travis Humphrey enough for honing the block and getting us the new parts. Can't wait to hit the track again !
