AIDEN BAKER CROUSE is one of the top young drivers who race each month at the Powerade Karting Championship Series at the Carolina Motorsports Park.

Aiden Baker Crouse is a Micromax Rotax Kart Racer. The 10-year old, a student at Union Elementary has been making a name for himself in the racing world. He is the son of Jason and April Crouse of Vale, North Carolina.

Aiden started his race career at the age of six racing Quarter Midgets. His first race was also his first win. He went on to be the 2012 North Carolina Junior Honda Champion. In 2013, he took the Brigg’s Junior Animal Grands National Championship. During the 2013 race season, Aiden competed in many classes, winning against others that were much older. He has earned numerous Fast Timer awards and holds many track records. He made the move to karting in 2014 to pursue his desire to race road courses.

Coming from a racing family, his father and grandfather raced late model on asphalt circle tracks, Aiden has a great support team behind him. His father, grandfather and his uncle Jimmy are his coaches, race support, and mechanics. Aiden’s mother is also track side assisting but most of all there with open arms and big smile as he passes under the checker flag.

Aiden plans to race limited late models when he is 13 and move to road courses when his age permits.

You can see Aiden race at Carolina Motorsports Park in Westville on Saturday, April 18.
