Uselton Plans To Overcome Adversity As 2019 Season Nears End

Via MKRacin29 Media

Eureka, CA (July 25, 2019) – 2019 has been a season of major change for young MKinzy Uselton. The Eureka native came into the year with a new confidence after participating in the Lakeport Indoor Outlaw Kart circuit through the winter months. That experience has helped carry her to perhaps her most successful season behind the wheel in her Legend car at Redwood Acres Raceway and her 250cc outlaw kart with the Humboldt Outlaw Karts.

That isn’t to say that there hasn’t been any bad luck this season. In fact, the worst of it took place in her most recent race in the Legends division at RAR on July 20 when contact sent her hard into the front stretch wall. While Uselton was able to get out of the car on her own, she went to the local hospital for precautionary measures. Everything proved fine in regards to her health however the damage done to her car was extensive enough that she will be unable to participate in the final three events at Redwood Acres Raceway this season. Sadly, that means that Uselton will not be able to potentially earn her best points finish as she is currently third in the division standings.

While her season in a Legends car has come to a premature end, Uselton still has four races left racing on the dirt in her 250cc outlaw kart with the Humboldt Outlaw Karts. Just as she has on the pavement in 2019, Uselton has also shown great improvement on the dirt with a new poise and sureness that has allowed her to be positioned second in the standings. Only two points-paying events remain on the schedule but the deficit of 13 is not impossible to overcome.

Uselton’s next race with the Humboldt Outlaw Karts takes place Saturday August 3. MKinzy and her team would like to thank her sponsors for their support: Auntie Pam Motorsports, Farmer’s Insurance, Mandi Ross Agency, Four Star Realty, John’s Used Cars & Wreckers, Redwood Mechanical, Bay Side Realty, Howard’s Body Shop, Happy Donuts, Higgins Brothers, Joe’s Auto Glass, The Bus Sisters, Miclette Family Racing and Brent Mack.
