Trust in God and check your safety belts.
I am so glad that I found this interview questionnaire that Pierce Urbanosky filled out for me earlier this year. His answers were handwritten in pencil, and just so honest and real.
Pierce has been racing at KAM Kartway for 8 years and started out in our Kid Kart class. He is now in the Outlaw 250cc class and the reigning Outlaw 250 Class Champion at KAM Kartway. You can see his Driver Profile here. Driver Profiles are FREE for all KAM racers, so if you would like to add yours just let me know.
