Lucas Oil Winter Nationals

We spent many hours getting their karts ready. I would like to say thanks to Martin for the time and dedication he puts into the sport for us. I have included a picture of our new Nationals champ, Devin. Kaelie won their heat race but came up a little short and finished second. We are really proud of these two. They play hard and race hard. Devin also tried his hat at a flat kart this weekend for the first time. He made it into the A feature out of about 30 entries and placed 6th. He had a blast racing with the adults in this race, and was a fair competitor.
Here you see my two in the front, Kaelie starting pole position and Devin on her side. If you look real hard (good pictures are hard to get here) Their tires are already into each other and they hadn't even gotten the green flag yet. Ok, Kaelie's tire is into Devin trying to push him out of the way I guess. Sibling rivalry is everywhere in our family.
Here is Kaelie and Martin working on her kart in the pits before she goes out on the track. Checking gears and making sure everything is tightened and ready to go. We had a great weekend and the outcome was not too bad either.
