Kart Racing is Not For the Faint-Hearted
While some of us remember go-karting as a kid, kart racing has it’s history set in the 1960’s when they first put motorcycle engines into standard downhill karts. Karts have been increasing in speed ever since and they now have the ability to reach speeds of over 130 miles per hour. Most people can’t imagine driving that fast, but for these nationally recognized kart racers, it’s a dream come true. Most kart racers begin racing around 7 or 8 years of age and continue to climb the charts if determined enough.
Grand Junction Motor Speedway’s Legend in Her Own Time
Starting at age 8, Sabre’ Cook has wowed all those that follow in her “dust” tracks. Growing up at Grand Junction Motor Speedway has given her the advantage she needs to achieve these accomplishments. She has been a Colorado State Champion for 6 years, and has won the TAG Junior USA World Champion twice. Above all that she has national and local corporate sponsors, and maintained 4.1 GPA throughout high school. She is currently a freshman at the Colorado School of Mines working toward a double engineering degree. No doubt the race this weekend will turn many heads.
