15 year old Cole Peschang of South Beloit is right hat home at the Daytona International Speedway.
He recently won his third championship there during Daytona Kart Week. Peschang won the TaG Junior Class. TAG means “Touch and Go” motors. His kart has a self contained water-cooled 125 cc engine. Speeds topped 110 miles per hour.
Peschang had the fastest kart in a group of 29. More than 20 of the drivers in that group were adults. The adults had a huge advantage. Their karts weren’t restricted while Peschang’s kart had an engine that was restricted by the size of the exhaust pipe diameter because he’s only 15.
