I am 13 years old and just raced my first race in a car Friday at Malden Speedway. I finished last in the heat and 6th in the B main. I didnt make the feature cause you had 2 be in the top 4.

How did you race at the tender age of 13, I had to be 14 to get my written permission from my parents. And that was some time ago. Long before you were born, and back in the "old days" when that kind of stuff was just overlooked? I'm not trying to rain on your parade, just looking out for your safety as well as the drivers around you

Good job man...most of all don't get discouraged because of bad finishes. I had a lot of trouble my first two years but trust me, if you stick with it you will have tons of fun, gain lots of experience, and those good finishes WILL find their way into your trophy case. Good luck and have fun!

Oh and one more thing...age is just a number and does not in any way reflect pure talent, and don't let anyone tell you different

AT our local track you have to be 10 to race (maybe 12) the young guns class.
Which is a 4 cylinder class.
They look so small when you see them, but they do a real good job of controling the car.
The only trouble so far has been not enough muscle to control a flat tire or a power steering failure.
