Those points are all racers from 5-14yrs old.
Aiden spent 2017 season helping his friend Chase Kosmatka with the #21C Mini Wedge when he was 4yrs old. Just being around the families and Kids Aiden was drawn to the racing life style. Racing in a division that is in its growth stages Aiden races kids from 5yrs old to 14yrs old. In 2018 Aiden finished 2nd in overall NIMWA points standings. As well as a 4th place finish @ Akron Speedway Point series. Thru dedication and the drive to finish every race he learned alot and made great friends. Finishing every race but 1 out of 18 last season he certainly impressed many. Each week getting better along with learning skills and fundamentals was key.
