Archive: 2001 Racing Season

Late in the racing season, Matthew Crowell began racing Junior Kage Karts. Our first goal was quickly set - do not get lapped. We only ran a few races and we quickly learned that we had a lot to learn!

Matthew was only nine years old, yet he was racing against some kids that started when they were five. With his father's and grandfather's love of racing, it was not surprising that Matthew was attracted to this sport. He had tried youth football and baseball to find himself sitting on the bench. Even at such a young age, it was clear that coaches wanted to win and only those with natural talent would be playing.

So, we put Matthew in control. He chooses if and when he races. He can choose to sit on the sidelines and watch or he can be in the game every time there is a race.
