In the Pits with SIMA's 2019 Rookie of the Year

Every year at the end of the SIMA race season fellow racers come together and vote for our coveted perpetual awards. We want to give each recipient an opportunity to say a little bit more about what it meant to them to receive the award, and to offer words of wisdom to fellow karters.
