Danton Wyatt finds his Mo Jo...
May 23, 2006 - updated May 23rd, 2006 11:34pm
Web posted by Chrissy Wyatt-Ward

Hampton, VA --

This weekend, Danton raced his best race to date since starting in the HRKC series at Langley Speedway in 2005. Danton started his heat race from the 6th position. The set up he ran with was a drastic change from his last race and presented him with a new challenge. Danton's dad with the assistance of his uncle Casey, a current Late Model racer at Langley Speedway and past HRKC competitor decided Danton needed more bite in the turns. Racing on a road course offers right hand turns & can be challenging if your kart isn't dialed in for it. The goal was to achieve a setup that would allow him to run anywhere in the turn without spinning out. Boy did they achieve that goal! At the end of the heat, after spinning twice Danton would finish fourth. The catch there is, the kart was so good that even though he spun twice, a result of driving too aggressive with an awesome kart....he still finished fourth.

On the start of the feature, the drivers of the Jr. One division did the one thing they were warned not to do... fanned out on the front stretch. Coming into turn one, Danton was relegated to the sixth place position. There he settled in and started picking off the karts ahead of him. Danton was so pleased with his go kart that he went places he shouldn't have been able to and made passes that made on-lookers wince. His best position was second, but a slip here and there had him in the third position when the white flag flew. Coming into the hairpin turn, Danton attempted to lap a kart, was turned into and spun out. It would appear that he went from third to last in one lap. He was CRUSHED! The heat was overwhelming and the elation of rallying from sixth to as high as second on a road course with lap traffic to boot was going to be an awesome finish for Danton. So the thought of finishing last had him beside himself when he came off of the track.

After seeing his kart back to his pit, he checked on the results of his race and found that 4 of 9 karts were on the lead lap and he was the last one. Therefore he finished fourth. He may not have won, not even second or third, but anyone watching him would tell you that he, his dad and uncle Casey have helped him to "Find His Mo Jo." Danton maintained his 2nd place position in the point standings, but certainly has the top spot in his sights. Danton would like to thank his sponsors Wyatt Homes Inc. and B & N Trash Removal for their continued support.

The HRKC is off this weekend but will return to racing on June 4, 2006. The stands are FREE to spectators, come on out and support our TRUE YOUNG GUNS!
