Hot Lap: Trevor Briska

Tell us about your racing background and how you ended up at the Lucas Oil Regional Series: I’ve always enjoyed motorsports, motocross in particular. I started racing at the age of 8. My dad has a friend that used to race Pro-Buggy for Lucas Oil so I was always at the races spectating. At age 11 I started racing the JR2 karts and have loved it ever since.

Family seems to play a big role on most regional teams and we see your family at the podium with you every round. How important is your family to your success and what roles do each of them play on race weekends? Family is always a big part of racing: knowing I have their support gives me confidence on the track. I couldn’t do this without my mom who always reminds me to stay hydrated on the long hot weekends, or my dad who works as my mechanic on and off the track.

What is your advice to someone looking to start out in short course off road racing? My best advice for a new driver is to have patience. When you first start out, there is probably going to be a lot of equipment that needs improvement and maintenance, so you have to roll with it. Another thing is you have to be smooth to be fast and staying consistent can win championships.

Who is a driver that you admire/look up to and why? I have always admired Kyle LeDuc because of his clean driving and anytime I’ve talked to him off the track, he has always been friendly no matter what kind of race he just had.

When you’re not at the track, what can we find you doing? Away from the track I spend a lot of time with my dad preparing my kart for the next race. I also spend a lot of time at the river or the desert. I try to put in as much time on my dirt bike as I can.

What/who is your biggest challenge on the track? On the track, I would have to say that my biggest competition is Hailie Deegan. She is incredibly fast and always puts up a good fight regardless of what track we are at.

Any goals for the next few years or beyond? Since this is my last year in the modified kart class, My goal is to capture the championship in both the Regional and the National series. I’m not sure yet what I will be racing next year, but there are a few ideas in the works.

Take us through a typical race day at the regional series with your team. How does it work? A typical race day starts with drivers meeting first thing. We then move on to qualifying which is important so that my dad and I can discuss what changes need to be made to the kart before the race. To me a big part of racing is having fun, so I always try to spend my free time with my friends before the race. Then I spend about an hour Pre-race getting mentally and physically prepared. Once I finish my race, I spend the rest of my day relaxing and watching the remainder of the races.

We know it takes a lot of support to race and you seem to be backed by some great companies. Is there anyone you would like to thank for their support? I’d like to thank my family and friends who provide endless support! I would also like to thank my sponsors: ITP tires & Wheels, Prolong Super Lubricants, G&J Aircraft, Bills Pipes, Trophy Kart, and my engine builder Jim Yoakum.
