"We had a good weekend of racing for the final race of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Regional series at Lake Elsinore," reported Clint Briska. Clint is the Vice President of the international J.H. Sims Trucking Company, Inc., but more to the point, he's the proud father of Trevor, the up-and-comer with promising off-road racing skills.

The day started off a little rough for Trevor at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, with an electrical issue that kept blowing the main fuse and causing the car to shut down. The setback allowed Trevor to only complete two laps of qualifying, which relegated him into the 19th starting position out of 25 Modified Trophy Karts. However, the kid from Ontario, California has clearly illustrated early on in his life that he was not one to be slowed down by a little adversity.

When the green flag dropped at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, Trevor quickly started picking up positions. By the end of the race he made his way up to 5th place and had earned enough points to finish 3rd overall on the series.

Trevor just became a teenager in November, and what makes his competitive tenacity that much more impressive, is that 2013 was his first year racing Modified Trophy Karts. He got his first taste of racing motocross when he was just six-years-old, but two years later he was diagnosed with Diabetes. "At which time we took about seven months off of racing to get his health in order," said dad.
Trevor lists making it back to Crandon for the 43rd Off-Road World Championships as one of his 2013 highlights.

"In 2012 we started racing JR2 Trophy Karts, in which Trevor finished 10th overall in the LOORS, and if I am not mistaken, 4th in the regional's," Clint remarks. "I was helping a friend of mine, John Holmes, who was racing Pro Buggy in LOORS at the time and we were going to all of the races. This made us think that maybe Trevor would like to try racing the Trophy Kart series. This year we were able to compete in four of the Robby Gordon SST races that the Modified Karts were invited to, as well as making the trip back to Crandon, Wisconsin for the 43rd year of Off-Road World Championships. It was also the first time they have ever had the Modified Trophy Karts and all the fans absolutely loved it!"

As if the young K&N backed racer needed anymore character building experiences, on November 4th, right before his 13th birthday, Trevor had to have brain surgery. At the start of the season he had gotten a concussion, and after a CT scan his doctor noticed that Trevor had an enlarged Arachnoid Cyst that required draining.

"He is recovering well and should be able to get back in the car by the start of the New Year," confirms dad. "Trevor is very much looking forward to next year's race season and plans on running in both the LOORS and the Regional's, as well as whatever else comes about. And we are hoping to be invited back to Crandon next year for sure. Trevor's biggest off-road racing hero is Kyle Leduc and he hopes to someday be able to make to the top ranks of the PRO 2 or PRO 4 as a driver."

In his rookie year in the Modified Karts, Trevor didn't only finish an inspiring 3rd overall in the Lucas Oil Regional Series at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, he very nearly broke into the top-10 in LOORS, finishing 11th overall in points out of 24 racers.

Just want to give a big thanks to K&N and all of our sponsors that help make it all happen," adds Clint. "It has definitely been a long year with a lot of racing."
