Meet Wes

Just north of Cincinnati, Ohio is home for me.  2022 is my 10th year racing karts and when I'm not racing karts I enjoy fishing, swimming, being with friends and schoolwork.  Currently, I am building a 1965 Chevy C10, more about that in a bit.

 

As I mentioned, this is my 10 year racing karts - I am 14 years old.  It was actually my moms idea that I race karts when I was 5.  I'm glad she did.  I have won over 75 races and collected 6 season championships.  Some of my most memorable wins were in 2021 at the Daytona International Speedway on the Rolex 24 track, 2022 at Roebling Road Raceway and Mid Ohio Road Course while competing with the World Karting Association.

This year (2022) I will be competing in 4 racing series with a total of 38 races.  In 2 series I will race in the Senior 100cc and Senior LO206 classes and in the other I will race in the Junior 100cc and Junior LO206 classes.

You're probably can't believe I mentioned schoolwork.  Like any kid, this isn't my favorite, but I home school so I do schoolwork throughout the summer so my load isn't as heavy during the school year.  This allows for me to drop and go racing more often.

About the truck.  While some friends were visiting I was asked what my dream truck or car.  I rattled off a 1965 Chevy truck with a short bed, LS engine, manual transmission and it must have hand window cranks. Well, those friends are helping my dream come true.  See for yourself.
