Joel started racing go karts at the age of 5 years. In his first season he won five races and came home second in season point standing. The next year he was moved up to the Tiger Sprint C class where he won seven races and the track championship. The next two seasons he was again moved up to Tiger B, and then Tiger A divisions where he won the championship each season bringing his total to three track championships in four seasons of racing.
In 2016, Joel will be moving up to the Jr. Sportsman division hoping to grab a fourth championship. The team will work hard to get a handle on the set up of the new kart and get it to handle to Joel’s liking. Joel is very good at giving us feedback on how the kart is handling so we can make the correct changes. After a two more seasons of karting, Joel wants to move into Mini Sprint racing. The team has already purchase a roller chassis and hopes to finish getting the car together this year so Joel can begin testing with the car.
