Jun 23, 2007 Allison Legacy North WIN at All-Star Speedway

Tayla Orleans began racing go-karts at the age of 7. Out of 120 races, Tayla received 92 top 5’s with 31 wins. With that kind of record, it was inevitable that Tayla would win the Championship, and in 2004 she did just that. In 2005, at age 12, Tayla had 14 race starts in the Allison Legacy Series. And in 2006 Tayla showed that she is a force to contend with. On April 2, 2006 Tayla won the feature at Waterford Speedbowl in Conn. She became the youngest driver in the Speedbowl’s history to win a Stock-Car feature. 2006 also saw a second win on May 27, 2006, at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY, and a third win at Waterford Speedbowl. Despite her hectic schedule, Tayla received an award for achieving Honor Roll Status throughout the 2006/2007 school year.

Tayla is the youngest competitor -- and the only girl -- in the Allison Legacy North Race Series, a string of competitions across the Northeast featuring three-quarter-size stock cars that can reach speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.  (read more...)
