(Carnesville, GA/ Times~Journal) —  The annual ‘Thanksgiving Thunder’ has become the largest outdoor karting event in America, drawing an international field of racers to Carnesville, GA for the holidays.

Thousands flock to this event every year. In 2016, Thanksgiving Thunder drew over 2,500 entries.

Colby Senn, a second grader at Centralhatchee Elementary School, qualified first and sat on the pole position recently with a lap time of 16.342 sec at a average speed of 54.4 mph.

He went on to win the race while leading every lap. This was his first time ever racing at this track in Carnesville, Ga.

Special thanks from Colby to McCullough Motorsports, Parkway Motors, Cash Racing Engines, Millenium Chassis, JRP Parts, and Pawpaw Evern Beech.
