My name is Austin Edwards, and I am 11 years old. I started racing when I was 5 and drove a go kart until I was 8. I've seen many crashes, but not as bad as one of them. My first year in the Bandolero, I qualified second at Irwindale, but then running straight into another car in the corner, I went upside down. I came back out of the car with no harm and went home, fixed the car, got back on track. I'm sure many people would like to race, unless you don't like going fast. When you get really fast, you get a really, really tight feeling. If no one's okay with that then you'd need to go super slow, and you wouldn't win. I've even asked other drivers if that was normal, and it was normal. It took a little to get used to it. This year, I'm hoping to get third or better in my championship. Last year at a different track, I got third place in my championship, a better finish than that would be cool! Winning a championship would be the ultimate win! I hope that will happen someday. The biggest thing I've done in racing was raise $3000 for YAPS! That was just in three months! I went to YAPS one day, and thought these animals needed help, so I decided to start helping. I am hoping to keep raising more money for YAPS.

Austin has been driving whatever he could get his hands on since the age of 3. He can drive a boat, a tractor, or a tow truck. He is a quiet, laid back kid with a hidden sense of humor. He loves his family, friends and most of all RACING!
