Notes on Youth, Speed, and the Next Generation of Motorsport
If you’re in a hurry, we’ll give you the short answer: it’s yes. Steven Aghakhani is fast. Very, very fast.
Of course, we here at TKX always knew that. Our sponsorship of the 14-year-old
racing phenom goes back to the emergence of his fledgling racing career. We knew the kid had the right stuff. As he smoked the competition at the Western State Championship at Thunder Hill on October 7th and 8th, we were proven right.
And he’s not slowing down anytime soon. After Thunder Hill, it was on to Button Willow for the Southern Region Championships closing out October. And he did not disappoint, earning his first championship title.
“For a young driver bringing home your first championship is a memorable thing,” Steven said in a statement released on his blog. “Being it your very first year and the youngest driver to ever win the championship makes it even more profound.”
Next stop? Steven and his team have their sights set on the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona, January 27th and 28th. We’ll be with him every step of the way.
