Kassidy Kreitz Racing Reflects Four Races In
PORT ROYAL ⎼Kassidy Kreitz, 17, has completed four races in her 305 sprint car so far in the 2017 season. Some, have been cancelled due to weather, but there’s a bunch more on the schedule for the upcoming months.
“We’ve learned a lot this season so far and can see improvement every time out on the track”, says Kreitz. “Right now, we’re just trying to get in more laps, so I can learn.”
Kreitz’s first race of the season was a major struggle. As they faced mechanical problems throughout the night. However, the next race of the season, which was helped at Port Royal Speedway, was her best yet. Kreitz, brought home an 8th place run after starting 14th in her Maxim Chassis, Rock-it Pizza & Subs car.
“That was a good night for us. It was our second time out for the year and it was basically one of the first times when we had a solid night, without any major issues.”
Kreitz, has ran two more shows since then. She brought home a 13th place finish at Susquehanna Speedway and then won Port Royals Founders Cup (non-qualifiers race) during their biggest race of the year, the Keystone Racesaver Challenge, which was being made up from a 2016 rain out.
June is set to be a busy month for the team. Kreitz, has 6 possible shows on her schedule for that month, and will also be graduating high school on the 4th.
