Owen and Kendall Grennan, of Glen Cove, raced once again this year as members of the East End Kart Racing (EEKR) Club in Riverhead. The racing season stretches from March through November with sporadic races on Sundays. After traveling the East Coast National Circuit from South Carolina, North Carolina to Buffalo, Owen and Kendall both came home to win the Long Island Championships.
Kendall, age 9 and one of two girls in her division of 13 competitors, had a substantial point lead throughout the season. Kendall won her first championship in the Sportsman Champ I division.Owen, age 11, who raced neck-and-neck all year with his competitors, which led to a crazy point chase right to the end, won his second championship of his career in the Sportsman Champ II division! Owens’ previous win was in his sister’s division two years ago.
