    Hi,

    Long time member. Don't post so much.

    Anyway my son races go karts competitively and has entered the Champion Auto Parts "Search for a Champion" contest. Winner gets sponsorship to help with their racing. You can read/see more about is story on the contest website and his entry page here:


    http://sfac.championautoparts.com/entry/1847/

    Connor was only the 2nd American to win the Rok Cup International World Championship in Italy this year and followed it up by winning the largest kart race in the US in Vegas in November. Karting ain't cheap so winning some sponsorship money would be great and winning would help raise his profile in the racing community.

    He's a great kid with straight As. Check out his entry and if you have time register to vote and cast him a vote. You can vote ever day from now through early February.

    By the way, he's a huge Gator fan. Both mom & dad are alum. He will be racing next to Miami-Homestead motor speedway next 2 weekends if anyone wants to come by and check it out. Weekend of the 13th is the bigger race.

    Much appreciated.

    Jim

    I remember that contest a few yrs ago. Sign in once and easy clicks to vote daily. Darned if I recall who it was my friend had me voting for. Did your son race WKA last week at Daytona? I didn't go because the weather was awful.

    Yes he was there. Won one of four races he was in and 2nd in another. Had to start one other from back since his motor died just before the pre final and went from 45th to finish 7th.

    No but I think they order the entry pics by the amount of views or votes. We slipped one spot this am. Thanks for voting!
