Keegan Widmyer

My name is Keegan Widmyer, I am a league karter and Road to WES eSports driver. I am the upcoming generation of motorsports drivers at 15 years old. My vision and goal is to get as many people interested in motorsport as I can; I want to be the first American driver to win a Formula One race in over four decades since Mario Andretti in 1978. I know this will be a tough accomplishment, however, if I can work my way up the racing ladder, it will not be impossible with the hard work and dedication that I will put into the journey. Growing up, I have never been afraid of hard work. Up to this point, I have had straight A's since middle school, I am the Vice President of my sophomore class, and I have received different awards for my academic success. These grades have led me to be the top of my class currently with my goal to be Valedictorian when I graduate. In addition to this, I have competed in robotics at the national level and worldwide level multiple times. As a result, I know what it is like to work towards my goals and never give up until I achieve them. So far, I have had a great start to my league-karting career. It started slowly with two top 10 finishes in weeks one and two; In weeks three and four, I greatly improved with a 3rd place finish and a 4th place finish. In the last 4 weeks of the season, I finished strong which led to my seasonal achievements of 3 podiums, 6 top 5 finishes, and 8 top 10 finishes over the 8 race season. In addition to these results, I was in the top 20 times of the year at one of the track layouts at Three Rivers Karting! Just like most indoor karters in the country, I was ranked by ProSkill which measures a driver's ability compared to the fastest lap time. In only three months of racing at Three Rivers, I finished 21st out of 28,000 people (higher than 99.93% of all people who went there this year)! I am currently competing in my second Three Rivers Karting junior league where I am competing for winning the championship this time around! In my eSports series, I finished strong in the races competing against world-record-holders with me finishing in 7th place and 5th place! With wanting to work my way up the racing ladder, I will compete in the senior class LO206 kart series at Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PittRace) starting this May for my rookie season! I am proving to myself that I can do anything as long as I put my mind to it. Ever since I fell in love with racing last year it is all I have thought about and wanted to do. I was told that I would never be able to race at a high level and I, myself, did not think I ever could race at all. Now, I know to always set my goals very high so I can have the best opportunity to achieve them! In 10 total Three Rivers Karting races, I have nine top 10's, seven top 5's, 5 podiums, and 1 win! I am going to be a very competitive contender for the championship during this league!
