Kacee Pitts ~ High School Champion

In the Wilson’s NAPA High School category, racers who begin 2014 in High School are eligible to compete for race honors.  At the first event, Kacee Pitts won due to a red light start from Jacob McGarry, who was too quick by -.046.  The second points event, which was held on May 24th, showcased a pair of ladies in the final as Pitts defeated last year’s series champion Chelbi Hageman on a double-breakout that was separated by only .004.  The third event in the six-race series featured Jacob McGarry and Pitts, who was in her third straight final round to start off the season. Down to the finish line they went, with Pitts getting to the finish line first but breaking out by .004 more than McGarry.  With that event complete, the point’s standings were as follows: Pitts in the lead with 210, McGarry sitting second with 170, and Hageman in third with 130.

 

At the second event in June, Kacee Pitts continued her dominance in the High School category, earning her third win of the first four events when she defeated Chelbi Hageman via a 12.898 on the 12.87. It is also important to note that with Pitt’s win, she ran a total of THREE in the month of June (out of five finals) to earn the Kershaw Knives Racer of the Month award. The fifth event Pitts again down Hageman, who was in her second straight final round, this time when Hageman turned on the red light by just -.025.  With the final even on the horizon, and the championship in the firm grasp of Kacee Pitts, the battle for Team Woodburn’s final position. Jacob McGarry currently sat on the team with 250 points with Hageman right behind by only one round of racing.  At the final event, McGarry was driving the ‘street car’ after breakage occurred in the Nova, and advanced to the final round before losing to Kacee Pitts, who earned her fifth event win in the six-race Wilson’s NAPA series.
