    Didn't a 12 year old just win a late model race? But yet he shouldn't even be driving the car? LOL... Now that's funny.

    Ability and maturity are two different things. A very few kids under 16 are talented enough to win a legitimate super late model race. Even fewer are capable of processing and handling adversity behind the wheel at that age. 15-16 is fine, but dad and crew better be ready to take some lumps as well. You start taking money out of pockets no matter what age you are, there will be consequences.

    Don't believe everything that Chris Smokey Madden claims. He has to be older than 12.

    Kinda surprised that track and sanction insurance company guidelines donít address this stringently.
    Some arenít happy unless theyíre mad.
