CKI Millville, NJ Race Report

June 26, 2009
Our team was really happy to have a race that was so close to home. New Jersey Motorsports Park is about a 2 hour ride from our house and it is an awesome facility. Mike Doty, Cale Wyse, and Uncle John Baio were all hoping for good results in our home state. We raced IAME Jr. and our Friday qualifying results were pretty solid.

CKI New Castle, IN Race Report

June 01, 2009
We decided at the last minute to attend the CKI event in New Castle because Mike Doty wanted me to test a different set-up for TaG. So basically we went there without any expectations of winning or anything. My dad and I flew in very late Thursday night and actually got to the hotel at 1 am Friday morning. We were really, really tired but we knew we had a long day of practice ahead of us. Since I have missed so many school days for racing this season, my mom said “No way!” when we asked if I could attend the Thursday practice, too. So without having any track time on Thursday, this made it very difficult for Mike Doty, Cale Wyse, and Uncle John Baio to set up the kart. But if my mom calls the school even one more time this year and tells them that I have swine flu, I think she might end up in jail. Or at least DYFS will come and hunt her down.

STARS OF KARTING – EAST DIVISION – MARCH 6-8, 2009

April 23, 2009
As our team headed down to Ocala, Florida for the first STARS race of the season, I was feeling much more confident since I learned a lot at the FWT races. I was lucky to have Mike Doty, John Baio, Cale Wyse, Jamie Sieracki, and my dad to help me this weekend. At STARS, there are so many heat races and then a pre-final before you ever get to your final events that you have to try to have consistently solid finishes all weekend. That hopefully sets you up for a good final event.

FWT REPORT – FEB. & MAR. 2009

April 23, 2009
Even though we didn’t do well at our first attempt at the FWT in January, our team kept working really hard and we finally did show some improvement. In February, we still had trouble in qualifying in both TaG Jr. and KF3. The competition down at these events was fierce. The drivers are very aggressive and fast! Sometimes I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. But with the help of Mike Doty, Jamie Sieracki, John Baio, and Cale Wyse, (and of course God) we ended up with a 6th and a 10th in the TaG Jr. finals. Two 8th place finishes were the best we could do in the KF3 finals. So things were beginning to look up, slowly but surely.

Daytona Man Cup Race Report

January 04, 2009
When we arrived in Daytona, the weather was beautiful; way better than at home in New Jersey! I couldn’t wait to get back in the kart after four long weeks off since Supernats. I played way too much Gran Turismo during that month off so I was really looking forward to getting back on track.

Stars of Karting National Final Report

October 13, 2008
No matter what happened this weekend, our team was grateful for the awesome season we had leading up to the National Finals in Las Vegas. We really wanted to finish off our year with a National Championship. Our team was excited and nervous. Excited to be in Las Vegas, yet nervous because we knew we had a national title on the line. I guess you could say we were “cautiously optimistic”.
