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.

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”.

What a long flight we had from New Jersey all the way to Seattle, Washington.! It was raining when me, Dad, and Mike Doty got off the plane. I guess that’s nothing new for Seattle. Anyway, we spent Thursday setting up the kart and we had a little free time so we went to the Space Needle. It was totally awesome!

We went into New Castle with high hopes for a win. Although we didn’t get one, I think our team had a pretty awesome weekend. The weather was great all weekend long with lots of sun and just a few clouds. I was glad that for once my mom and sister came along, which made the weekend even better!

Team 64 was hoping to have a successful weekend in Illinois. The weather was great most of the time except for a quick shower on Friday. Friday was a hectic day as we practiced for all three classes. We were doing well and were pretty fast. However, even though we felt confident on Friday evening, we knew that there was a lot of tough competition out there.

When we arrived in Shawano, we were hoping our good luck would continue as we got ready to finish up the STARS East division. During the early session of Friday’s practice, the heavy rains soaked the track. The first two sessions we practiced in the wet. We were lucky that it quickly dried up so Jamie, Mike, and my dad could work on our set-up. Throughout practice we were never the quickest, however, we were very consistent.

Our team traveled to Dousman, Wisconsin for the Man. Cup Grand Nationals held June 13-15, 2008. Even though we weren’t able to bring home an Eagle, we still had the most consistent National event ever for us. The 64 team scored four top-ten finishes including two podiums! It was an awesome weekend.
