End of Season for Young Motorsports

Our first race season is officially in the books! Congratulations to Ryan Bleich on his Championship, very well earned and deserved. To say we had fun this season is a massive understatement. We ended our season 2nd overall in points with 3 Fast Qualifiers, 1 Heat win, 10 top 5s and 11 top 10s in 11 starts. These last 6 months have been the experience of a lifetime for me and achieved my lifelong goal of racing at 5 Flags Speedway. This has been an immense learning experience from Day 1 when the build process began. I feel like I’ve grown so much not only on the track but off the track as well as the season has progressed and ended. We’ve had a lot of ups and downs and I’ve made plenty of mistakes that I’ve learned from throughout this season. I’m looking forward to our Crown Stock Snowball Derby and excited for what next season holds at 5 Flags Speedway and Mobile International Speedway

I owe a huge amount of thanks to Caitlin Bray and Gene for all of their support, motivation, and allowing me to chase my dreams. None of this would be possible without you. I love you guys!
