The team has been working hard all summer long and Jason was in the hunt for season championships in the last two series weekends. It is your support this season that has gotten us here, all we can say is “Thanks!”
We visited Grattan Raceway Park near South Haven, MI over the weekend of September 10th to finish the season with the Championship Enduro Series. He had missed two weekends of racing but had done well enough to still be able to move to first place if he won the last four races. This was very possible as long as our new(to us) kart performed and held together. We had a tested it at Badger Kart club the weekend before and it was very promising. Unfortunately, the weather had other plans. It rained all day Saturday giving everyone rain points and putting the championship out of reach. On Sunday, the new chassis broke but we were able to repair it and Jason went on to win both races for an exciting but slightly frustrating weekend.
The last race of the year was at the happiest place on earth Road America. They held a 100 lap Endurance race. Jason partnered with on of his sportsman competitor Will to run LO206 Junior. We knew we would not have the fastest kart racing against animals and yamahas, so we planned to pick up time during driver changes. We put on a big gas tank that would easily finished the two 50 lap stints. This made our two pit stops very fast, as we only needed to change drivers. Other teams needed to change drivers and fuel, putting their pit stops on the order of minutes compared to our seconds. The boys drove very well at one point they were as high as 3rd but eventually fell back to 6th as the fastest karts were able to make up their pit time. At the end of the day Will and Jason finished first in their class and 6th overall.
