Fourth grader tallies victories racing go-kart

WARRENSBURG - A local youngster has made a name for himself in go-kart racing this year.

Warrensburg Elementary student Lane Saville, 10, has won two feature races at Turkey Trot Raceway in Argyle, and he's garnering more wins as the season progresses, his parents Kirsten and Kelly Saville said Monday.

Lane races in the Junior No. 1 Rookie class in a custom vehicle that weighs around 200 pounds.

Lane said his goal was to live up to the sticker on his helmet, which reads, "Second place is not an option."

Lane said Monday he was aiming to win as many of the 2009 season's 17 remaining races as he could

"I love to go as fast as I can," he said.

Kirsten said she was proud of her son's accomplishments, as it was his first year racing.

"Our generous sponsors make this possible," she said.

Area businesses contributing to the cost and upkeep of Lane's vehicle include Nemec's Sport Shop, Warrensburg NAPA Auto Parts, Warrensburg Car Care, Oscar's Smoke House, Braley & Noxon Hardware, D.A. Collins, Kubricky Construction, and Adirondack Barbell.
