Lindsay Kernohan

Type of Racing: Open Wheel

Race Series: USAC For Focus Asphalt Midget Series, World Karting Association(WKA)Sprint, International Karting Federation(IKF) Sprint.

Introduction: Lindsay Kernohan started racing competitively in 1999 when she was just eleven years old. She and her father purchased their first kart and spent six months just getting seat time and learning the chassis. She began competitive kart racing the next year at the local club level.

In 2001 Lindsay moved up in her competitive level and began racing the regional IKF series. She captured her first two club championships at the junior level. This year she was also awarded the "Most Improved Driver" award by the IKF Region racers.

In 2002, Lindsay continued her IKF participation and finished in the top 10 season points. She also captured two more club championships and was awarded the season high points award. 2003 was her last year as a junior driver and she raced with IKF along with the Bridgestone "Stars of Tomorrow" series where she finished fourth in points after missing one race.

As she began 2004 in her first year as a senior driver, Lindsay locked up one IKF Championship and one WKA Championship along with two second place season points totals in different classes. 2004 also saw her selected as a participant in the Lyn St. James "Driver Development Program" held in December at Phoenix International Raceway. Her biggest accomplishment in 2004 was being selected as a driver for Ron Sutton's "Winners Circle" driver development team. She will be competing in the 14 race USAC sponsored California Asphalt Midget series in 2005. Mr Sutton received over 400 applications, interviewed over 80 applicants, gave individual test drive evaluations to 20 drivers, but he only selected three drivers for his 2005 team. One of those drivers was Lindsay.

Finally Lindsay was just notified that she is a finalist in the Irwindale Speedway Minority Driver Search program and will be introduced at an upcoming press conference with Jeff Hammond. The selectee will receive a full 12 race season in a fully prepared Legend car supplied by Humpy Wheeler of Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Current Season: The USAC Ford Focus California Asphalt season is now two races old and Lindsay Kernohan is getting a great deal of experience driving her first asphalt, Midget, Oval races after many years in road course sprint karting.

Race one was held at Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale California on March 26, 2005. This was Lindsay's first Midget race experience and she learned a lot. Especially how hard concrete walls are when you go into them at the end of the back straight. During P1, Lindsay blew an oil filter gasket and dumped oil on her rear tires and track. This resulted in a wild ride into the turn three wall and destroying three corners of the car. Luckily Lindsay escaped with only a few bruised knees and a fat lip proof positive the Hans Device works.

After her crew worked their tails off getting the car ready for P2 she hit the track only to have a right rear tire leaker. Next was qualifying and she qualified 10th out of 20 not knowing what the car would do next. The main saw Lindsay battle up and back but remained in 10th for the checkered flag.

Race #2 was also held at Irwindale Speedway on April 2nd and she was much more comfortable with her car and crew. After struggling with set up during practice, Lindsay qualified a respectable 10th with a major push. Lap one turn one turned out to be not so good with the front pack getting into each other and collecting Lindsay and sending her into the infield. She re-fired and was in last (17th) place when the green dropped again. With 34 laps ahead of her she put her head down and started moving up through the pack picking off one at a time. She was able to climb up 7 positions and was in 10th when the checkered flag dropped.

Our next race will be April 9th at Stockton Speedway in Stockton, California and we are ready to go.

On another note, Lindsay has been selected as a finalist in the Irwindale Speedway "Minority Driver and Pit Crew Member" search. She was introduced a few weeks ago with Jeff Hammond of NASCAR on FOX fame at a press conference held at Irwindale Speedway. The program will offer two young minority individuals a chance to increase their skills. The pit crew winner will receive a weeks training at Mr. Hammond's "Pit Crew U" in Moorseville, NC. and then work a full season at Irwindale Speedway as a crew member for a decided upon race team. The selected driver will receive a full 10 race season in a Legend car supplied by Irwindale Speedway with assistance from Humpy Wheeler for Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Racing Goals: Lindsay's long term goal is to one day drive professionally in an open wheel road course format such as Formula 1. She realizes this is a lofty goal and has not restricted herself to any format of a professioanl racing career opportunity. Lindsay realizes that most of the money and exposure lies in the oval closed wheel format and this is one reason she has decided to try the oval tracks this year.

Personal: Lindsay Kernohan is a sixteen year old female from Huntington Beach, Ca. She is a junior in high school. She has taken honors classes her past three years and is in her third year on the National Academic "Who's Who" of high school students list. Lindsay is also a third year varsity letterperson on her girls golf team. She was selected as the 2003 Player of the Year on her team and was selected as the schools October 2003 "Athlete of the Month"
