The race format for the day was a pill draw.  Through the heat races, the kart was fast, I drove smooth and smart putting my 100cc KA kart in the P1 position and my LO206 kart in the P2 position to start the final.   In the final, I won in the 100cc Senior class and 2nd in the LO206 Senior class.  I'm happy with the finishes.

Today I moved into the senior class where I raced in 2 classes.   In my 100cc kart, I threw 2 chains during each practice session.  I blame the mechanic!  During the races, I had no issues with the kart or the chains.  The racing was close from the drop of the green to the wave of the checkered.  In the end, I finished 5th.

 

My LO206 4-stroke kart was extremely fast and I felt like I could put the kart anywhere on the track and it handle great.  I finished the day in 1st place.  A great way to start the year in a new class.

1st & 1st

The weather was a comfortable 70° whereas at home it was a blistery 28°.  For this reason, as well as coming off a win at the Daytona International Speedway I was eager to get back into the seat and race.

 

On race day 1 I jumped to an early lead, placing a sizable lead on 2nd place.  Unfortunately, I lost the draft and the racer in 2nd was able to catch up to me.  After many laps of back-and-forth lead changes and a drag race down the front straight-away, I was able to cross the finish line inches ahead.

 

On day 2 the weather was phenomenal once more.  After a few subtle kart setup changes, I was able to put a big lead over 2nd place immediately following the drop of the green flag.  I was able to hold that lead for the entire race, once again finishing in 1st.

1st

Although I had been racing sprint tracks for several years this was the first road course race for me.  Following a few practice sessions and kart setup changes, I felt comfortable in my kart at speeds in excess of 90mph.

 

I started in the 66th position and when the green flag dropped I quickly made my way to the front.  At the completion of the first lap (3.81 miles), I had moved into P1 in my class, 2nd overall.  This type of racing consists of multiple classes racing at the same time.  On this day it was possible to have 5 winners in 5 different classes.  At the checkered, I led every lap in my class and won my first ever WKA national race (World Karting Association).
