Oliver's First Kart Race

Monday, July 13, 2015
Shortly after we returned home from Tremblant we were in south Jersey for the Northeast Regional race at NJMP.

Chloe did really well, the kids had a lot of fun.

Chloe took 2nd on Saturday and 3rd on Sunday.

Fellow racer and pal, Karsten, turned 10 and we celebrated at the track.

But all that doesn't matter right now.


And, it was quite possibly the most anticipated kart race of the race season. Not even an exaggeration.

Everyone was so excited to see Oliver race and very supportive. Only one other kid karter came to race. I felt bad for the other kid as he had to be intimidated by Oliver's throngs of adoring fans (no joke). That was until the kid asked if I was Oliver's grandmother.

Oliver's fans and pit crew help get his kart ready and shade him from the sun's rays.

Photo op with the kid, the myth, the legend--Oliver.

Dillon and Chloe were the pit crew and gave race advice.

In the end, Oliver got second, but he proved himself as a karter and didn't let his throngs of fans down. Most importantly to Oliver, he had his first podium ceremony and got his first race trophy!

And lets not forget his tuner and proud father--
Another father at the track took some great photos of the kids during the race weekend----
