Kevin Harter of Brunswick, Ohio has raced karts for as long as he can remember. Now, he’s a dad helping his son and other youth experience the thrill of racing. That’s why he’s the newest Team E3 Racing Tier 1 winner.
Harter’s racing experience includes competitions and wins in everything from karts to dirt bikes to gymkhana nationwide and in Japan. Today, he owns Championship Racing Performance, the only full service kart shop in the nation that specializes in 2-cycle sprint kart racing products designed specifically for young racers ages 5-12. He managed 2-cycle kart shops since 1988, before opening his own business in 2006. The shop offers new kart sales and service, engine building and blueprinting as well as trackside support and driver coaching.
Harter has a very personal stake in being the best in his business. His 13-year-old son, Kaden Harter, is already a veteran on the kid kart tracks, competing since age five. The teen is the 2010 Beaverun Motorsports Complex Yamaha Jr. Sportsman Track Champion and the former Barberton Speedway Kid Kart Track Champion.
Kevin Harter also is President of the Great Lakes Sprint Series, the nation’s largest World Karting Association divisional kart racing series. His and his family’s passion for motorsports is clear. So, from all of us here at E3 Spark Plugs, welcome to the team, Kevin!
