SPENCER PIGOT RESIGNS WITH THE FIRSTKART.COM RACE TEAM
"Talented junior sets sights on JICA title"
Brownsburg, Indiana -- December 19, 2007 -- First Kart North America, First Kart USA and the FirstKart.com race team are pleased to announce the re-signing of SunTrust Junior driver and Snap-on Stars of Karting Junior Intercontinental A (JICA) front runner Spencer Pigot. The Florida pilot will compete in the Florida Winter Tour, the Snap-on Stars of Karting Championship presented by IndyCar and the World Karting Association Manufacturer's Cup in his sophomore junior season.
"We are excited to have Spencer rejoin our squad," stated FirstKart.com Team Principal Tony Ventresca. "Last season Spencer performed very well despite being a rookie. Spencer had several strong runs and worked hard to ensure success. In 2008, Spencer is a strong threat for the overall series title and we can't wait to get started."
Pigot, who is a multi-time Cadet champion joined the FirstKart.com race team in 2007 and scored three Gatorz Pole Awards in the Snap-on Stars of Karting series as well as a victory in his rookie season. The talented Floridian also won his first ever JICA race in his first start at the Homestead Karting Complex during the first round of the Florida Winter Tour enroute to a third place result in the championship.
In 2008, Pigot has a demanding schedule that will see him compete at the Florida Winter Tour in the ultra competitive JICA class. The 14-year-old will also compete in the full Snap-on Stars of Karting presented by Indycar Series as well as the World Karting Association Manufacturer's Cup events beginning later this month. On off weekends, Pigot will travel to tracks across North America to complete an extensive testing program.
