2020 was quite the season

2020 did not go as planned, from a racing stand point was a good thing.  While waiting for the pandemic delayed kart season start but he made due with an WKA iRacing series and a trip to Road America for practice in a Miata.  As the season schedule reformed racing opportunities appeared that weren’t on the original schedule.  From June to October we where on the road for three out of 4 weekends racing and even added some additional practice days. 

Every weekend was full of racing.  Jason entered 2 classes in the Cup Karts of North America, which meant more track time but also more work as we only had one kart.  He was cycling on the track every 30-40 minutes for 3 days at a time.  At the first cup race Jason was offered a seat in a Arrow X5-4S by Noah Stark Engine Works and we ended up running the kart for the rest of the season.  On the big tracks was entered ether a singled class with two races or three classes with a single race each day.  Again only with one kart.  During one weekend we added a motor swap at Pittsburgh during practice and between races, so three races, one kart and two motors.  The highlight of that weekend was hitting 109 in his kart down the back stretch.  The last big adventure of the season was getting Jason into a Formula 1600 race car for some wheel to wheel racing at 130 mph.  All that racing added up to to some spectacular results.
