Steve was this a one time run or is it an annual series?

I seem to remember some controversy around the final pick in this show back in 2006 or 2007.

Steve,
Is Kyle one of his sons? Chris raced against Kyle back in the day.

*******SPOILER ALERT*******

Kyle and Pierce where on there. Kyle did well and made it to the final and finished P2. Pierce was pretty out to lunch, I'm afraid. He looked like a deer in headlights. The winner was Devon Cunningham who ended up winning a race or 2 in '07. They choose him over Mandarino, who won the final, but his attitude didn't do him any favors at all. He was also a winner in '06 with more experience. It was an OK show. But it had the tpical "reality show" feel to it.

In the long run nothing much changes with these things. Unless you have a scheme to support the winner for MULTIPLE years you aren't going to get anywhere. Elf Winfield and Red Bull are the only 2 that I've seen that had that long term commitment and they got the results.

The show IS worth while just to see what Paul Tracy, Derek Daly and Catherine Legge have to say. And the karting footage was good.

Yes that's him , I don't know the sons , back when Lonnie and I were racing the boys weren't thought of yet.

Did Chris ever race with Micheal Roth ? His dad was my partner at Cape Vessy kart track.
