    Congratulations to Bobby Butler for being the fastest guy at Daytona by 2 seconds per lap.    Great for the twin class as we needed a good showing if we want to keep the prestige of Superkarts.     Too bad that our numbers seem to dwindling.

    Hope you will bring that fast kart north to Mid-Ohio in June.

    Thanks Guys,

    The stars aligned.

    Almost gave it up when running out of fuel with a lap to go.

    Race Monitor site had some results.  Race 1 (Sunday) was rained out.

    Happy New Year

    Thanks  Sam and Johnny.  It means a lot to me to get a pat on the back from the “fast guys.”

    Still not sure where the extra speed came from, but I do remember saying to myself catching the leaders is one thing, making it stick is gonna require some serious infiield hustling and do not look back.  Well, it worked.  Wish ya ll were there.

    Happy New Year

    “making it stick is gonna require some serious infield hustling”

    I know it’s Daytona and good HP helps, but corner speed is where it is at Bobby, my guess is you must of improved in that area ;-)  …….you have been watching those videos of JR in your TZ again….haven’t you :-)

    Great Job Bobby!

    Bettering Brian’s F125 best time and beating him across the finish line would have gotten ole Wally’s shorts in a bit of a bunch!  ;-)
