Goose started racing karts in 1990, the same year Goose's Kart Shop was founded. His motivation for racing karts came from not being able to afford a Formula 1 racing team. Who came blame him, right?
He began racing the Briggs & Straton stock class at the Wasatch Raceway. He moved onto the Alcohol SuperStock Briggs and Straton becoming the Utah State Champion several times. In 1997, he stopped racing and put all of his effort into being a consultant for his kid, Wyatt. He loves being involved with anything karting and shows it through the success of Goose's Kart Shop.
Karting is one of the many motorsports Goose enjoys though! Check out the above picture where Goose is atop the big sand mountain at the sand dunes!

Dan began his kart career with racing indoor karts with Goose and Wyatt. After a few races, he decided to try the outdoor go karts at MMP. After the third race, he could almost keep up with the karting prodigy himself, Wyatt (see left column). The adrenaline from kart racing was so great, Wyatt let him take his 125cc shifter kart out for a spin at MMP. After a few laps and spin-outs, Dan got the hang of it (sort of) and decided to get into karts for real.
In 2013, he'll begin the Senior 4-cycle karting league. We wish him the best of luck!
He's also our IT guy.
