Kyle DeKnight, Pettisville, set a new track record and swept his class at the kart racing track at Jackson, Mich., Friday, Aug. 2.
John Huffman, veteran Archbold kart racer, said DeKnight was running in the “clone heavy” class.
He set a new track record during qualifying on the concrete oval track, then finished first in two heat races and the feature event.
DeKnight ran in the stock heavy class at the highbanked paved oval at Ft. Wayne, Ind., Friday, Aug. 16, where he was third and second and second in the feature.
Huffman said in the feature race, DeKnight and the eventual winner were sideby side when the white flag indicating one lap remaining fell.
