Team Driver Wes Henderson
|The TaG (Touch and Go) class of kart has gained
popularity in this country more and more over the last few years. The TCM TaG package
rides aboard a Margay brand chassis designed for the demands of the class. The water
cooled, two stroke, single cylinder engine produces upwards of 30 horsepower thru a
centrifugal clutch and in the 320 lb. configuration is capable of generating 2 1/2 G's of
cornering force with top speeds of over 110 miles per hour.
||The Jr. Supercan is identical to the Formula
Yamaha except that it uses a restrictive exhaust pipe, shape like a can with 4 holes to
allow exhaust to escape. The result is greatly reduced horsepower and much closer racing
........very similar to that of Nascar restrictor plate racing.
To compensate, the rules allow for less weight, only 300 lbs.

|This is the Briggs and Stratton 4
stroke Coyote Freeroller Autocross championship kart that carried Wes to 2 consecutive
SCCA Regional Solo II championships. It is a stock, 5 horsepower single cylinder motor in
a used chassis which was given to him as a birthday present. The wheels and tires were
given as a present from NYR-SCCA for meritorious service. This combination was potent
enough to split fields of full sized real cars in strong Autocross competition all during
