PEEBLES, OH - Our next #RaceLife Spotlight racer will most likely be packing up this afternoon to make it to New Castle Motorsports Park this weekend for the Manufacturer's Cup race. Colin Neal is 15 years old and has been racing karts for the past 4 years. His favorite F1 driver is Lewis Hamilton and Colin hopes to one day follow in his footsteps in becoming a professional racer. Even more impressive than Colin's aspirations is his attitude! Seeing that Colin's favorite race track is NCMP, it would be fair to say that we can anticipate a good result from him this weekend. Read more about Colin Neal below.
