TJ – My son is making the transition to Sr after our last club race this Sunday. He turns 16 in two weeks. We raced WKA this year and fit well into their Jr. program, but the problem is the classes are getting smaller as many people have fled for USPKS. The way I read the USPKS class structure we have to come in at 405 lbs. with the X30. That’s an 85lb add. Either that or I have to force feed my kid like a turkey before Thanksgiving. ;) I might need a team of people to help lift the 270lb kart onto the stand.

I did decide to put all of our eggs in one basket this year (Sold every motor but one club-level yamaha and the 2 X30s) Hopefully we can find some exciting events to race in this year. We’ll start with Kartweek and go from there.
