Learning From The Best

       Blake was able to learn some crucial racing skills this weekend when he got the rare opportunity to race with his karting mentor and NHKA Race Director Mike Camarra. Mike was gracious enough to get out on the track with Blake at this two-day racing weekend as the field was light in the LO 206 Senior class at this event.  The battle was on when Blake and Mike hit the track. After plenty of jockeying back and forth for the lead Mike took the lead to win. On day two, it was clear Blake had been taking mental notes . After once again battling back and forth for the lead, Blake was able to pull ahead with just one lap to go. Unfortunately a loose spark plug caused Blake's engine to fail in that last lap, dropping him back to second place.   Even though it was a tough loss, Blake was thankful for the chance to learn from the very BEST! Thanks Mike for being such a great racing mentor. Blake did take fastest lap time for the race at 1:14:573.
