Ethan Endicott and Brysen Duncan, two youngsters from Newnan, are taking the world of Kart racing by storm.

Karting is a form of open-wheel racing especially popular among young competitors and often used as a stepping stone to other racing ci rcuits . Endicott recently was recognized at the 2013 Maxxis National Banquet for winning two National Championships.

For his success during the 2013 season, Endicott received a leather racing jacket, national championship trophies, and championship rings. Endicott earned his titles by competing against 40 other drivers from 17 different states. Racing at the national championships is by invitation only, so Endicott had plenty of work to do at the regional level just to get his chance.

Endicott, who has earned the nickname Iceman, took the checkered flag in every one of the elite series events he entered. His 2013 racing resume also included a ProKart title and a Twin State title.

Duncan is also garnering plenty of racing accolades as his career continues to grow after turning in a solid season in 2013.

Duncan picked up wins in the Pro State Series, as well as other independent money events.

One of his biggest victories came during the 20th anniversary of Thanksgiving Thunder in Carnesville when he won the the Junior one Big Dog championship.

The dirt-track oval competition is considered one of the season's most anticipated events and was the highlight of his season.

Endicott and Duncan were recently named as one of the top eight Junior 1 drivers in the nation by Kartsport media.

The 2014 season is already underway with both Endicott and Duncan racing in Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Several Formula One drivers got their start in Karting, and NASCAR drivers such as Jeff Gordon, Danica Patrick, Darrell Waltrip and Tony Stewart cut their racing teeth in the sport.
