YOUNG, EXPERIENCED HOGAN MAKING STRIDES AT HOUSTON MOTORSPORTS PARK

Check out this great post by our friends at In Wheel Time about a 12 year old boy who has been racing for 7-years.

Christopher Hogan has been racing for seven years, which sounds like a long time until your realize he is just 12 years old.

And while you might think dad Aaron was the reason he got started, you would be wrong. No, it is mom Amy, with a little help from two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart, that got Chris and sister Kaitlyn into the sport early on.

“My mom started thinking about getting me and my big sister Kaitlyn into racing when I was around 4 years old,” Hogan said. “She read one of Tony Stewart’s books and in it he said that if he were going to put a kid in a racecar, he would put them in a Quarter Midget. We looked up what a Quarter Midget was and soon we were at the race track in San Antonio , ready to try one out.” more »
