This wasn't Ashlee's week. She just did not have her heart in it and her kart wasn't performing. She finished both heat races in 3rd (out of 4.) We had a large crowd there to watch her between uncles, aunts, friends and cousins. Unfortunately we couldn't get her kart started for the feature. We had many people try to help get it started (even fathers of other racers.) She was so bummed! This was the first time she wasn't able to race.
Lesson learned. Sometimes things just happen that are out of your control. You cannot control everything on your kart. You are bound to have mechanical issues from time to time. We just hope to get things up and running and have better luck next week.
