    Race in Palm Beach last weekend. Likely his final race in the "mini" class (generally ages 8-12). Connor doesn't turn 12 until end of July but we're likely moving up in class for next race to the "junior" category which is mostly 12-15 year olds. Here's going from the top of the heap to the bottom and starting over!

    We were in Ocala Fri/Sat practicing in the new junior (larger chassis with more hp) and decided to run over to Daytona for the last few hours of the Rolex 24 and was able to meet Jan Magnussen one of the factory Corvette race team drivers. Awesome of him to take time to say hello to us. Tomorrow I'm at the business school for the career fair and Connor gets to come with me and miss a day of school. Lucky kid.

    Thanks to everyone who voted for Connor. Last Friday he was named one of the 3o finalists in the contest and we find out in early April whether he wins or not. There is once again daily voting now through 3/23 for the finalist group if you have time to support him.

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

    He's moved up in class in his racing and is now racing against 12-15 year olds in the Jr. class - bigger chassis and 28 hp instead of 9 hp so a big jump for him but he's already placed 3rd and 5th in two races with pretty stiff national competition and he's consistently been one of the fastest karts on track in his class. Just needs to get the race craft up to snuff with these older, more aggressive drivers. Our next big race is this coming weekend in New Orleans. Will be a big (48 karts) national field so a good challenge for him but he likes the track and was fast there last year in the mini chassis so fingers crossed.

    Please vote as much as you can (up to every day which is a pain I know) to help Connor out. Thanks.

    Thanks Guys. One step closer to the big prize! Oddly enough another of the finalist is a go kart racer that also goes to my son's middle school in NC. Crazy. He doesn't have much of a racing resume so don't think he's got nearly as good of a shot as connor but funny anyway.
