I dropped back a few spots since the last ranking was published, but will finish the season 40th overall. There are 6 Texas shifter kart pilots ranked in the top 25 (incl. #5 and #9) and several more highly ranked drivers who raced in the Southwest Regional Cup. I still have lots to improve on for next season, but it definitely helps to have great competition in TX to motivate me to get faster. Given that 2011 was my first full season of regional-level karting and with the driving talent in TX, I'm pleased to finished the season in the top 40.
