Too bad your not female. Imagine what "You just got passed by a 13 year old GIRL" on the back of your car would do to egos.

C'mon dads with daughters - make it so.

There's a 13yo WDC driver who should be racing next season. Maybe you'll get to play with him?

Ok she got my old kid kart after I moved to Rotax Mini Max. We painted it pink for her and she practiced around our house, well that didn't go well. We had are closed go-kart trailer in the front driverway... she came to turn around to go to me and my dad and slid, lost control and instead of hitting the brakes she FLOORED it!! :o
She drove full out in the trailer and got some AIR on the ramp and crashed into my Dad's very expensive shifter cart that was in there.
She walked out and made this face... :noidea: . We told her what she did wrong and decieded to have her dive at a track not our house. Ok here we go... first ever on a track, she gets ready to go on the the track... she is at the track pit out and she dosen't look both ways :nonono: and crashes into another karter. She made the same face :noidea:. We all decieded she should take a break from karting for a while, a long long while. She now wants to get back into it, but we already sold the kart as these 'accidents' took place years ago. So we told her we will get her a litttle electric car from Walmart. :king:

She was 10, or apparently younger - give her a break. My quarter-midget racing nephew came up through the ranks with several race chicks, all good friends of his. One of them is racing a sprint car now, and doing well - that takes some guts.

Shawn, was in the karting mix with those guys. You forgot Sara Fisher, and also Niki Coello. Also Ryan Hunter-Reay.
There was some pretty strong karters back in those days that made it to the big time.

Big congrats. In my old sport I was the "kid" against the "grown ups". It was a great experience.

Now I'm one of the grownups, and I feel old!

Was there a New Yorker driving a white Cayman while you were at Homestead? If you met him, he's the "infamous" Joey G. Really nice guy, though a bit on the cukoo side....in a good way.
