Here's a picture of Skyler Smith from Bemidji - the 17 year old driver for Team Weaver. Team Weaver is the brainchild of writer Will Weaver - a racing team featuring a young driver that accompanies his new series of books for young adults "Saturday Night Dirt". Will, Skyler and the car (#16) travel around to talk with young readers. The first in the series came out in April, and Skyler's first ever win happened Mother's Day Weekend. Skyler and Team Weaver and "The Bookmobile" compete in the stock car races around the KAXE listening area. Keep up with Team Weaver by checking out the blog....
Stay tuned for information on a KAXE event where you can meet Skyler, Will and #16 sometime this summer!
