Since the launch of Tegu Mobility, we’ve been doing what we can to encourage underage driving. Most recently we discovered two amazing pint-sized racecar drivers who we will be proud to sponsor: Sam Paley and Max Kaeser. Nine-year-old Sam has been racing karts for three years, with many notable finishes including second place in the 2010 Kid Kart Nationals. Teammate Max is eight and is also a national level ski racer. Both boys are straight-A students and are passionate about racing.

This past December they raced in Daytona Kartweek, a huge competition for both amateurs and some professionals who burn rubber around the track in $25,000 karts. Sam sped his way to a third place finish, while Max came in first out of the 27-strong field of Yamaha Rookie competitors.

Look for more updates on Sam and Max as they head into the Zoom Zoom Nationals March 11 – 13 in Kershaw, South Carolina. Please join us in cheering them on as they battle it out for the Nationals title this year!
