Brannam jumped to third place right after the green flag dropped. The 17-year-old along with two other cars pulled away from the rest of the 20 car field. It looked like it would be a three car battle all the way to the end, but several cautions changed everything.

The field was bunched up and the drivers who originally fell behind got a second chance. Brannam did not take off well at the restart and the 4th place car squeezed by her. As Jessica fought to climb the ranks but another yellow flag slowed the race. She finished 4th for the day. “I’m happy with my results,” she said. “I’m only racing mini sprints part time this year. To beat most of the track meant a lot.”

As soon as the race ended, Brannam’s crew loaded up her go kart and headed off to the next race in Indianapolis. She competed there in the World Karting Association, National Road Race Series.

Brannam had a good start at the beginning of the Briggs Animal 335 race. She and one other kart broke away from the rest of the field. With only one corner to go, Brannam made a pass for the lead. She crossed the line about 4 kart lengths for the win. It was her first national event victory in two years.

“We’re on a limited budget,” said Jessica’s mother Diane Brannam. “Saving money on gas is important and with K&N Engineering products our tow vehicles get improved gas mileage. On the track we get great air flow.”

After the national event the McHenry, Illinois resident went home to get ready for her first day of college. She will soon head to Las Vegas to compete in an off-road race.
