Six races into the season and the Saratoga kids — brother and sister race car drivers Kevin and Jenn Lawrenuk — are bringing home so many trophies, mom Laurie jokes she’s “gonna have to buy them some Swifter dusters.”
Doing great and having a blast in their third season at Saratoga Speedway.
Kevin, 15, currently holds the No. 1 position out of a field of 46 cars in the Hornet class A division.
Jenn, 19, who started the season in the B (for slower cars) class, but moved up as her times improved, is currently sitting 12th in the A.
This is Kevin’s fourth year of racing up at Saratoga; Jen’s third. The siblings race for the Coast Auto Service Racing Team out of Qualicum Beach.
Jenn’s new pink 1999 Honda Civic SIR is turning in her fastest times ever — her best time to date is a 19.0 and Kev’s is 18.2.
A reminder Saratoga Speedway, near Courtenay, will be up and running full on over the August long weekend (July 30, 31) with a double header that includes monster trucks.
